SAU Plate Carrier

The SAU was designed based off the core values and beliefs of what Lighthawk Tactical stands for. Our design team worked with end-users, conducted multiple field tests, and continued to make modifications until the SAU was built right.
These modifications resulted in a streamlined, lightweight, modular, tactical plate carrier that exceeds today’s criteria. The SAU is a flagship product for Lighthawk Tactical and is one of our latest innovations coming to market in 2018.
