Buy AR500 Armor Freeman™ Build Online
This AR500 Armor Freeman™ Build Plate Carrier has a minimalist design that is compact enough to fit under a car seat or backpack and easy to put on anytime. It is compatible with 9″ x 9″ plates and features PALS channels for attaching additional gear, such as magazine pouches.
Hypalon shoulder straps are adjustable and provide a full range of motion for comfortable all-day wear. This pack includes two AR500 freeman plate carrier setup Level III 9″x9″ flat build layer plates rated to stop six rounds of 7.62×51 NATO M80 ammo and one extraordinary threat proven to eliminate 5.56 M855/SS109 green tip ammo.
They are made from AR500 freeman and feature a proprietary FragLock coating with an additional build-up layer to help reduce flaking. Also unique to the ar500 armor plate carrier is its lightweight Tier III+, which sheds weight (10×12 SAPI is 6.5 pounds vs. 8 pounds) but loses protection from .308 armor-piercing rounds.
They stopped the threats of M855 and M193. But it failed against the M2AP. The Light Tier III+ (with stack) is my favorite option and is worth the slight price increase.
