USMC Plate Carrier


The USMC Plate Carrier is the new U.S. Marine Corps plate carrier vest system. It consists of a cummerbund style main vest with the option of using IMTV groin and lower back protection. The system is designed to allow the Marine to scale the system dependent upon mission requirements. The PC is a 2-point cutaway system, has fully integrated side protection, communication routing channels and increased MOLLE attachment points. In addition to more efficient weight distribution, the PC gives the Marine the ability to use a plate carrier vest system instead of the larger IMTV vest. The PC also has optional lower back and groin protection and can be removed if not needed. Additional options include removable side plate pockets and a removable rifle bolster.
