Concealment Body Armor like nothing else. The revision of our concealment carrier is based around a single goal, maximum concealment. Down to material selection and form of each component the AR Concealment Carrier is designed to minimize printing.
AR Concealment Carrier (Empty): only 8.1oz
AR Concealment Carrier (Loaded with Front & Rear 10” x 12” IIIA Hybrid Soft Armor): only 2.6lb’s
We did away with traditional Cordura Nylon and went with a moisture wicking, breathable, 4-way stretch abrasion resistant fabric for each plate pocket. This switch thins the profile, improves comfort against the skin, and helps the carrier mold to the lines of your body improving concealment. The plate pockets are a keep it simple design, with a slight overlap passthrough on the lower 1/3 section of each plate pocket on the body facing side. This design allows you to easily insert your armor and does not require the use of plate pocket flaps and retention straps to secure the armor; reducing overall thickness of the plate carrier by not requiring layers of material to layer up over one another. This approach reduces the front side cummerbund print you see on traditional concealment type carriers
The shoulder straps are constructed from ultra-thin but strong Hypalon and are lined with low profile Velcro only where needed, while still allowing full adjustability. The combination of low-profile Velcro and Hypalon allowed us to create a shoulder strap design that minimized material overlap, again reducing thickness of the AR Concealment Carrier for improved concealment.
The cummerbund also uses low profile Velcro, and a reduced weight elastic material the cummerbunds adjustable retention. The cummerbund is adjustable on both the front and rear of the AR Concealment Carrier giving you the most options for concealment and reduced printing.
Form fitted for 10” x 12” soft body armor. We do not recommend the AR Concealment Carrier for use with hard armor, although it can be done, it is designed for maximum concealment of IIIA soft body armor.

Our Level III body armor provides industry leading protection against "penetrator" rounds such as the 5.56 M855/SS109 - which, put simply, can blow through UHMWPE type and similar Level III body armor options.
All while being designed to handle extreme abuse in day to day use, training, and less than ideal storage conditions. AR500 Armor® body armor will outlast alternative armor solutions such as Ceramic, Dyneema, UHMWPE, and raw/uncoated steel trauma plates.

LEVEL IIIA BODY ARMOR
AR500 Armor® Level IIIA body armor is Stand-Alone and Multi-Hit capable. Designed to defeat pistol caliber threats up to .44 magnum, and .357 SIG at 1,430FPS or lower, including all lesser pistol calibers.
Since their inception, conventional hollow point pistol bullets have performed well, but have never delivered 100% reliability, especially in self-defense situations. The patented Flex Tip® technology used in Critical Defense® ammunition eliminates the clogging and inconsistency that often plagues hollow point bullets. Hornady® achieved this by using the same tip material used in LEVERevolution® ammunition.
All Critical Defense® ammunition is loaded in nickel-plated cases for increased visibility in low-light situations. Premium low flash propellants deliver proven performance, even in very short-barreled handguns, and won't disrupt your vision. Reliable expansion and dependable terminal performance can be counted on for concealed carry and personal protection.
Our upper AR15 upper receivers are all made from parts manufactured in the United States of America. You can customize your build with your choice of barrel in a variety of calibers, your choice of handguard. You can also choose to add a bolt carrier group and charge handle to meet your needs. All uppers are properly head spaced and guaranteed.
