Purposely designed to be used as a back plate in your plate carrier capable of accepting 10” x 12 body armor. AR500 Armor® Level III Back Plate body armor offers the same ballistic protection as our ASC line with the benefit of increased coverage. Utilizing a back plate affords you additional coverage from the back side of your plate carrier. Please note that your plate carrier must be compatible with a rectangular back plate cut. Compatible carriers include the Operator II®, Testudo™, Concealment, Emergency Personal Carrier (EPC), and ESCORT. We do not recommend using a Back Plate in the front of your plate carrier unless you’re willing to forego comfort and ergonomics while shouldering your rifle.
