If you're in the market for a cost-effective rig with both MOLLE and buckle-up compatibility, get eyes on the 8Fields Tactical Buckle Up Plate Carrier w/Cummerbund; 500D Cordura! We have seen this rig before, but this version is part of the 8Fields Premium range, boasting reduced weight and improved strength thanks to its 500 Denier Cordura branded fabric construction. 

Cordura also boasts improved water and tear resistance when compared to conventional nylon and is the primary fabric used in the construction of real steel tactical gear. The carrier itself is covered in MOLLE attachment loops, allowing you to mount pouches wherever you see fit, but its party trick is the buckle-up system. Buckle up allows you to switch out the front panel for any buckle up compatible panel in seconds, meaning if you like to take two different guns to the skirmish you don't also need 2 different rigs!

Description

If you're looking for a high quality Airsoft plate carrier that won't break the bank, look no further than the 8Fields Premium range. This is the Buckle Up Plate Carrier with Cummerbund in its Premium form, constructed from 500 denier Cordura for improved strength, water resistance, tear-resistance and reduced weight.

Cordura is the military standard fabric and is used in a wide range of real steel combat gear as well as civilian applications which require high strength. The benefit of this rig over the 1000D Polyester version is that it has reduced stitch density which results in reduced weight, but still maintains strength and water resistance thanks to its use of Cordura branded fabric.

The carrier itself is designed with a solid cummerbund, meaning extra protection on each side and extra MOLLE mounting space. The MOLLE loops present on all surfaces of the carrier allow you to affix MOLLE pouches wherever you need them, including magazine pouches, dump pouches, utility pouches and back panels/hydration packs.

At the front, we are treated to a buckle up placard which is pre-installed and MOLLE-equipped. The benefit of buckle-up is that you can quickly remove the front panel via its two polymer buckles and velcro backing and replace it in seconds; an extremely useful feature for those who run multiple platforms with different mags in a single skirmish. The idea is that you set one placard up for one gun, and swap out when you swap guns. With buckle up, those who follow the "variety is the spice of life" ethos no longer need to bring multiple rigs to each skirmish!

To don the plate carrier, you will need to lift the front flap, after which you can detach the velcro-secured cummerbund from the front plate bag, place the carrier over your head and secure it at the front for a comfortable fit. Both the cummerbund and shoulder straps are adjustable to suit most body types, with the cummerbund adjustment applied at the rear via bungee cord and the shoulder strap adjustment via velcro. Each shoulder strap also includes a removable pad with comms/hydration tube routing loops so you can keep your cables and tubes neat and out of the way of potential snags. 

If you need a robust tactical vest for a superb price, the 8Fields Tactical Buckle Up Plate Carrier w/Cummerbund; 500D Cordura is calling your name. A superb design made even better by robust 500D Cordura construction, the Buckle Up plate carrier is ideal for those who want the looks of a modern carrier with extra side coverage to take the sting out of incoming BBs!
