Are you looking for a basic plate carrier that is suitable for all-day, everyday wear? Introducing the Advanced Plate Carrier. The carrier includes a one-size-fits-all, fully adjustable design and NIJ Certified Level III, III+ or IV  Hard Armor. Just add your accessories, and even patches if you like, and you are ready to go.

The perfect choice for anyone facing multi-threats from handguns or rifle threats.  The simple, yet effective design allows for easy load customization to fit your individual needs. Carry what you need, not what someone else thinks you want.

Comfort and fit are a priority at Body Armor Direct. The Advanced Plate Carrier is designed to offer ballistic protection that is lighter, more adjustable, and easier to wear making it the perfect choice for anyone who needs all-day ballistic protection. The one-size-fits-all carrier is fully adjustable, incorporates a single curve design, and comes with your choice of steel or lightweight poly front & back armor.

Backed by the Body Armor Direct Warranty. Each carrier is warranted against defects in workmanship or materials for 24 months from the date of purchase. Panels are warranted for 5 years from the date of purchase to conform to minimum NIJ protocol in an actual confrontation. Please refer to the Body Armor Direct Warranty page for specific requirements and limitations

Protection you can trust. All carriers are subjected to a rigorous internal testing regimen and each ballistic panel is NIJ Certified Level III, III+ or IV. 

A Price you can afford. You cannot put a price on returning home safely at the end of your shift, but Body Armor Direct does not want the price of armor to prevent you from having the protection you deserve. The Advanced Plate Carrier is one of the most affordable options available, we do offer several payment options. Whether you use ShopPay, PayPal Credit, 4 interest-free installment payments, or government purchase orders we have got you covered.
