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.

"I was looking for something light, compact, and still able to hold magazines without having to buy extra pouches and this works perfectly. The plates it comes with are good quality and the admin pouch was a great surprise. A great carrier that I cannot recommend enough!

"Got this Plate Carrier a few weeks ago, and just a few days ago I used it for the first time. To be completely honest, it was well worth its money, especially if you buy it while it is still on sale for $55. This plate carrier comes with 3 integrated mag pouches just like it says, and it also includes an admin pouch in the top front of the plate carrier, as well as dummy plates, both of which are not stated anywhere in the description.
-Good quality stitching, durable material
-Offers multicam as one of the camo's for regular price of $80, which is incredible as normally you cannot touch a multicam plate carrier for under $150, and that is just the base, this also includes mag pouches and an integrated admin pouch.
-Includes Dummy plates
-has a wrap around the shoulder straps which makes it easy for installing Hydration, allows the tube for the bladder to sit in the wrap and holds it in place nicely.
-When the mag pouches are empty, they can stay closed by the Velcro, which allows you to use your own mag pouches without them flopping all over the place because of the ones that are integrated.
-The system for holding the plates is quality enough to support real plates

-If you have a backpack strapped to the back, and have a decent amount of weight in it, it will drag down, and pull the front of the plate carrier up to your neck depending on how much weight you have in the back (This problem might be able to be fixed by purchasing side panels for the plate carrier, as they might keep the straps from sliding too much, but I am not 100% sure)
-this plate carrier uses straps and clips to hold the front to the back instead of a Velcro system like most plate carriers, so it can be a pain in the rear to put on and size, as well as it doesn't offer molle real-estate (however this can be fixed by purchasing a side panel, but will more than likely make it more difficult to take off, put on, and size correctly)
-Mag pouches are very loose, unlike most pouches I have seen (They stay attached well, what I mean is that the mags will fall out unless you use the bungee holders, makes reloading and putting empty mags back into the pouches take longer, makes it more difficult.
