Much like the gambeson for which this package has been named for, this armor is intended to be worn either standalone or under other garments. The historic gambeson often contained attachment point for adding supplemental plates to increase the armors capabilities. The Low-Visibility Plate Carrier (LVPC) uniquely fills this role due to not only concealability, but modularity as well. The LVPC is easily adjustable via the cumberbund and shoulder straps, as well as maintaining the ability to add removable pouches via the velcro on the front (or a unit or agency patch). The cumberbund also features (2) discreet mag pouches on either side.
There are a lot of options on the market today, for the intent of this armor package, we chose the HESCO® 200 series. HESCO® has been providing body armor for military use for over 20 years. Tier armor is tested to exceed all NIJ standards. The plates offered in this package are not only lightweight, but also tested for ballistic, blast, fragment and stab protection.
This package was designed with current events in mind, be it active shooter situation or impending riots or anything else America will be facing in the next few years. This is the armor package designed with low visibility discretion in mind, easily concealable, comfortable to wear and maneuverable.

Thanks for making this piece of kit available. I didn't know they existed. It accommodated my 10x12 plates easily and with a few minutes of tweaking got the fit dialed in.
