When experience, persistence, and theory collide, man-made evolution flourishes. The AR500 Armor® Testudo™ plate carrier changes the game once again in its new Generation 2 form. Welcome back Testudo™. The larger companion to our Veritas™ modular plate carrier, we follow suit and stick with our core principals of professional grade armor carriers with unrivaled value and craftsmanship, using superior components. Now marking the second addition to our signature plate carrier line-up. You will not be disappointed.
Unique to the Testudo™, it is capable of accommodating either 10 x 12, or large 11 X 14 body armor of any type. With a fully adjustable cummerbund and shoulder straps, the Testudo™ is versatile and viable for large or medium body types. Rugged side retention buckles and straps are included. Each side removeable for user adjustable level of retention and comfort, compatible with or without cummerbund installed. We retain a lightweight and durable profile by using genuine 500D Cordura nylon for construction. Strategic lower-offset rear shoulder mounts position the rear plate pocket higher, alleviating the traditional low hanging rear plate pocket as seen on carriers that lost sight of proper armor placement. Inner plate retention straps on both pockets further ensure ideal body armor ride height for optimal vital coverage.
3D Mesh Technology dramatically increases ventilation and air-flow for a cooling and comfort improving effect, located on both body facing inner linings, and the removeable shoulder pads. Shoulder pads also feature our tri-loop guides and attachment points. Soft loop Velcro lines all webbed sections for added versatility and mounting options. The heavy duty drag handle is fortified by engaging down the rear portion of the plate carrier. Reinforced Bar-tack, double, and double backed stitching throughout contract durability.
Dual admin pockets increase storage capacity, both featuring Hypalon easy-to-grip pull tabs for reliable access. The upper admin pocket features elastic divider retention straps while the lower is designed to accommodate our improved Kangaroo magazine pouch insert. Impact resistant buckles are manufactured in the USA and add at least four toughness points in critical areas.
The Testudo™ cummerbund front flap boasts generous Hypalon tabs for easy actuation and adjustment. Fully adjustable for girth and larger frames, the cummerbund has been reinforced with Hypalon eyelet pass-throughs and heavy-duty shock cord, allowing optimal expansion and retention when adjusted. Side plate compatible as sold, the built-in cummerbund side plate pouches accept 6 x 6, or 6 x 8 side plates of any armor type.
Derived from years of customer feedback, experience, and understanding, the Generation 2 Testudo™ is all inclusive and on point, ready to protect the warrior out of the gate. Perfection delivered with no additional accessories required, except armor of course.
