The Matrix Level-1 series of vests is a new family of low profile plate carriers that takes many of the popular design cues of the best selling vests on the market and makes them more efficient and user friendly. Designed to accept large size 9"x12" dummy SAPI plates, the Level-1 is compatible with a wide variety of training and mock SAPI plates as well as certain hydration plates. Up front is a triple magazine pouch that has come to be expected on most low profile plate carriers as well as a full compliment of MOLLE webbing for easy addition of more pouches. Where the Level-1 differs from other vests is in the cummerbund. Where most low profile plate carriers use a hook and loop skeletonized cummerbund, the Level-1 utilizes a tri-buckle design that offers the user easier donning and doffing, as well as a wider range of individual sizing adjustments. The Level-1 is a low profile all in one plate carrier solution at a price point any player can afford.

"Great plate carrier!
Ive had this carrier for awhile and it is very nice,i am a bit on the smaller side 5"7,but this carrier still fits me well. It has almost everything you need for adjusting.

-Actually Jumpable
-Tight Fit (Adjustable)
-Will not shift around
-Integral Mag and Misc pouches
-Comes with plate inserts installed

-No connection points for a belt
-Very Long adjustment straps (may be needed for larger people)
-Mag Pouches are sealed with hook and loop so it is loud when you need to put a magazine back in place,might give away position
-Better for wide shoulder people,shoulder hangs are wide

Personally my fix for the mag pouches are just some hook/loop on the inside so less connections on loops=less sound
All around a recommend!

"So high-speed that it came with plates already in it, I'm not exactly sure if it was supposed to or not. My only complaint is with the shoulder pads, as they are very tight and cannot be opened to thread the shoulder straps through them without a very dramatic wrestling session with said straps.

Definitely recommend this for those going for a more lightweight plate carrier set-up
