SORD USA Elite Advanced Releasable Armor Carrier

The Advanced Releasable Armor Carrier (ARAC) is the first product to be released for Pre-Order from SORD USA's new Elite Series of Nylon tactical gear. S.W.A.T. Magazine was the first to announce the Elite collaboration of Jason Falla from Redback One whom helped create the ARAC with SORD USA'S Design Team. Mr. Falla also was wearing this Armor Carrier in the cover shoot for the magazines August issue. 

The ARAC as with many of SORD USA's products was created with Special Operations units in mind who are keen on having a smaller plate carrier that can also be used in conjunction with soft armor. It is a high-speed, compact plate carrier, capable of holding soft and/or hard armor plates.

The cut of the ARAC allows maximum range of movement and does not hinder shooting positions like other larger armor carriers. The armor carrier includes a "Joey" pouch on the front with internal Velcro panels, allowing the addition of any number of items, such as the internal M4 triple shingle (included). The ARAC also features two different cummerbund options, one with top access Velcro pockets that allow for insertion of single M4 internal shingles (2 total included). Another cummerbund does not include side PALS columns, however it includes side fastex clips for getting on and off quickly and quietly.

Like other SORD releasable armor carriers, the ARAC has a unparalleled release mechanism to suit airborne operations over water or for quick detachment of the equipment in a casualty situation without the need to cut the rig off. The jettison device can be mounted on either left or right side to suit left and right-handed operators. The ARAC's release system comprises of Teflon-coated stainless steel cables, so you know regardless of dust or water ingress, it will release on the first pull, every time. With generous adjustable shoulders and sides, the ARAC is One Size Fits All.

The Advanced Releasable Armor Carrier will initially be available in A-TACS as seen in the photo above, as well as MultiCam Camouflage. You can also choose Black or SBC (Sord Base Color), which is similar to Coyote.  The two camouflage options will come with matching webbing. 

Initial Pre-Orders can now be placed at Initial shipments are scheduled for September for those that order first to receive the initial production run.
