We first saw the AirLite Plate Carrier at SHOT Show 2012 and again last year along side the AirLite Chest Rig at the Crye Precision Booth. There are now three versions with the EK01 and EK02 for SAPI Cut Plates and the EK03 and EK04 for Swimmer Cut Plates. There are four sizes for each model to provide a custom fit. The EK02 and EK04 integrates side plate carriers for added protection.

Crye Precision touts their AirLite Plate Carrier as the lightest available and we won't dispute that without all comparisons. The heaviest EK02 comes in at just 12.8 ounces and the lightest EK01 is just 8.8 ounces. We have provided the full operators manual at the bottom of this post to view plate attachment and adjusting for fit. The AirLite Plate Carries are only available in MultiCam Camouflage and come with the matching MultiCam Plate Camo Covers. Each Plate Carrier comes with attachment loops to integrate the AirLite Chest Rig.

The AirLite Chest Rig weighs only 4 ounces and integrates into any of the AirLite Plate Carriers as well as the LV-MBAV and LV-RBAV. Both the Chest Rig and Plate Carrier are MOLLE Compatible to integrate any related related equipment. View all AirLite Products at CryePrecision.com
