Plate Carrier vests are essential pieces of tactical gear for any law enforcement or military personnel. They are designed to protect vital body organs by absorbing and dispersing the impact of bullets or shrapnel from explosives – offering life-saving protection in the most dangerous situations. Plate Carrier vests come in various styles, and each type is designed to serve a specific purpose.
Tactical gear store Galls carries a wide range of plate carrier vests, and we offer specialized advice to help ensure you get the best product for your needs. Here are some of the different types of plate carrier vests available:
• Outer Tactical Vest (OTV): OTVs are the most commonly used type of plate carrier. They are constructed from heavy-duty nylon, and often come with a variety of pockets and pouches to store ammo, medical supplies, and other equipment. OTVs also usually include MOLLE webbing on the front and sides for attaching additional gear.
• Inner Tactical Vest (ITV): ITVs are lightweight and designed to be used in conjunction with an OTV. They include pockets or compartments for storing protective plates, provide additional padding for comfort, come in a variety of colors, and are often made from breathable, moisture-wicking fabrics.
• Plate Carrier: Plate carriers are lightweight and slim-fitting vests designed for use without an ITV. They are constructed from strong, abrasion-resistant fabrics, and often come with integrated pockets for storing gear.
• Concealable Vests: These vests are designed to be worn over clothing for extra protection in tactical situations. They offer minimal bulk and come in a variety of colors to match your outfit.
• Load Bearing Vests: Load bearing vests are designed to support the weight of heavy tactical gear, allowing you to move quickly and easily during high-stress situations. They often feature a harness or suspender system that helps keep the vest securely in place.
