Visitors will see first-hand the latest designs and an assortment of concealable, overt and tactical carriers second to none in the industry. These include the:

 American Revolution Concealable Carrier – Provides maximum comfort, breathability, and durability. It features low-profile shoulder padding, moisture-wicking, and anti-microbial material, patented Easy Grip Side Straps™ for quick donning/doffing, and is available with a fitted female carrier.

 Fearless Concealable Carrier – This premium covert armor solution features a proprietary yoke design which offers comfort and concealment by masking the armor profile typically seen through the wearer’s shirt. The yoke also increases adjustability and load distribution of the ballistic armor panels.

 Traverse Overt Patrol Carrier – Easily converts from a concealable soft armor into a front zip-side opening system. This vest offers both MOLLE and Dress configurations along with optional features to meet departmental requirements. It is available in either a LEGACY or new BRAVO configuration.

 Hard Core PT Carrier – A low-profile option that is adjustable in both the shoulders and waist. The vest features AE’s Dynamic Cummerbund System allowing the user to breathe and move much more efficiently. Shoulder strap geometry features enhanced ergonomics and communication channeling.

 Lighthawk XT 3.0 – Now built on the widely accepted SPEAR BALCS ballistic cut, the vest provides ample coverage while maintaining a more aggressive architecture. Improved carrier technology includes an MRM Vent System, upgraded Advanced Shoulder Pads, and interchangeable cummerbund system with quick release options.

 The Fearless Tactical Carrier – This adaptable and fully adjustable plate carrier provides optimal coverage without sacrificing mobility. Armor compartments can hold multiple size rifle plates and soft armor inserts. The vest features a 4-point, quick-release system that instantly drops the carrier, for reassembly in seconds.

 Special Assignment Unit (SAU) Plate Carrier – The streamlined, lightweight and modular SAU is available in MOLLE or Laser Cut configuration and features a Quad Ventilation Liner (QVL) system, Advanced Shoulder Pads, optional COBRA® Alpha Quick Disconnect Cummerbund, and more.

 The Fearless PC – This state-of-the-art plate carrier system features a laser cut attachment platform and can be customized with either the TUBES® or COBRA® Alpha quick release Dynamic Cummerbund systems with accessory sleeves, so the wearer can kit out just the way their mission requires.

 The Active Shooter Response (ASR) Faction – A ‘one-size-fits-most’ plate carrier with an unsurpassed range of adjustment. This cost-effective solution addresses large or small agencies looking for a plate carrier that fits most common sized hard armor rifle plates, along with the widest range of body types.
