New Lightweight Plate Carrier from Mission Spec

Mission Spec is happy to announce the release of their new plate carrier.  The Essentials Only Carrier (EOC) is a lightweight (23 ounces), low profile solution for those seeking a minimalist designed armor carrier.

The EOC was designed to fit two medium sized shooters cut SAPI armor plates.  The 1000 Denier Cordura constructed carrier utilizes ITW Nexus acetal polymer buckles.  All components are nIR treated and/or compliant (excluding black).  All design, testing, and manufacturing was performed in the United States.

The rear plate bag can be independently raised to offer better rear armor protection to a wider range of users.  Patterned (ie: MultiCam) EOCs include pattern matching PALS webbing, side straps, and outward facing loop.  Spacer (air) mesh faces the user on both the front and rear to help wick moister away while also improving airflow.  The low profile design allows the EOC to be concealed under a light jacket for undercover uses.

The EOC is fully compatible with DKX Max III Polyethylene armor (shooters cut) available through Mission Spec.

To compliment the release of the EOC, Mission Spec has also released their Shoulder Savers.  Designed specifically to be used with the EOC however the Shoulder Savers can be used with nearly any plate carrier that utilizes 2" wide (or less) shoulder straps. Communication cables and hydration tubes can also be routed and secured via the Shoulder Savers.

Both the EOC and Shoulder Savers were scheduled to be released in Black, Coyote, and MultiCam.  However, an unforeseen shipping mishap resulted in the Coyote being lost.  At release, Black and MultiCam are ready to ship immediately with the Coyote counterpart approximately one week from completing production.  Future patterns to be released; Kryptek and M81 Woodland. The EOC is available for purchase now at MissionSpec.com
