LPC™ Light Plate Carrier (Carrier)

PINNACLE OF PLATE CARRIERS

The cutting edge of modern body armor - combining agility, comfort, and functionality

Durable, lightweight, and with quick-release fasteners and high-end MIL-SPEC/NIR materials to meet the challenges of the modern battlefield.

Customise Your Rig

Easily customize LPC™ to your needs via advanced front and back laser-cut MOLLE panels. Low-profile and robust loops allow for the semi-permanent anchorage of equipment, keeping your gear secure even through heavy abuse.

Quick-release System

Rugged 2M® ROC shoulder and cummerbund quick-release buckles enable sub-second removal or dressing of the carrier. Significantly decrease your critical reaction time with this tried and tested rapid response system.

Materials Matter

We follow MIL-SPEC standards to ensure uncompromising functionality, durability, and longevity in combat conditions. Our products are built to last and manufactured with a quality you can rely on.

Add Extra Protection

Our optional armored cummerbund, neck, shoulder, intestine and groin modules are the perfect solution for high threat environments. Increase your effective armor area to suit the needs of your mission – ensuring the highest level of ballistic protection.

Stay Invisible

NIR (near-infrared) materials significantly reduce your detectable heat signature, aiding in camouflage from enemy night visioning systems. Blend into your environment and safely execute your mission without being detected.

Additional Super-Efficient Ventilation

Designed to be worn day in and day out, ventilated panels, padded loadbearing points and premium multilayered liners deliver superior comfort and thermal management – helping you fight longer and harder.

Industry Standard

lazer MOLLE is slightly tricky to see, especially in black, but the vest itself is very good

FAQ

Q: How to choose my perfect fit size?

A: By measuring your chest and waist.
Your perfect fit is a combination of the size of the plate and the cummerbund. For that, you will need to measure your chest and waist and can then get an ideal combination.
At the top of the page, there is a Size Chart where you can select the option Determine Size, which will tell you exactly which size will fit your requirements perfectly. You can also check the Size Chart at the Tech Specs.

Q: Which armor plates are best to use with the LPC™?

A: The LPC™ is designed to work with all SAPI/ESAPI type or Shooters cut plates, with the recommendation to use STA (Stand Alone) type plates for an ideal balance. You can install ICW plates with enough space to install NIJ 0101.06 Type IIIa soft armor inserts.
Ideal plate thickness is between 0.7” (18mm) and 1.1” (28mm).
Make sure the size of the plate matches the size of the vest.
You may, if necessary, place smaller plates in larger vests, but this is not recommended both because of the lower protection area and the internal movement of the plate.

Q: Is it possible to install ventilation on the LPC™?

A: Yes.
The EVV™ Exchangeable Vest Ventilation is a module designed to increase comfort for the operator by ventilating the body. It can be added or removed without diminishing the defensive capabilities of the plate carrier and only adding comfort to the operator.

Q: What is the difference between the LPC™ and the Strandhögg™?

A: While the visual design of both models is fairly similar, the LPC uses more durable materials on the outermost layer, thus preventing distortions and stretching of the loops on the PALS interface. This option also reduces the price of the LPC™, although it doesn’t have the same color texture as the Strandhögg™.

Q: Is the LPC™ reliable in harsh conditions?

A: Yes.
Due to the composite materials using the Cordura® 1000D and 500D on the outside of the vest, the outer layers of the LPC™ is roughly 300% stronger than most plate carriers on the market.

Q: Is it possible to use this vest with cummerbunds of different sizes?

A: Yes.
As the vest is completely modular it is possible to wear any size and type of cummerbund with any size of the plate carrier.

Q: Can I install a chest rig and other gear to this vest?

A: Yes.
You can install any type of chest rig or additional gear to this vest. But, to ensure the best performance we recommend using only UARM™ gear.

Q: Is it possible to use the plate carrier with armor plates of varying sizes?

A: Although the plates will fit inside the carrier, this action is not recommendable. As the armor plates might not stay fixed inside the carrier, there is a possibility of them slanting down and leaving your lethal zones uncovered, which can lead to some quite unpleasant consequences.
