Advanced Ultra Durable Extended Drag Handle

  • Increased Safety: The extended drag handle also serves as a lifesaving tool during emergencies. It enables a fellow team member to quickly and safely pull the user to safety, even if the wearer is incapacitated or unconscious.
  • Rapid Deployment: Speed is essential in an emergency. The extended drag handle on the OPSEC advanced quick-release plate carrier allows for rapid deployment, allowing one or more soldiers to be extracted from a dangerous situation in seconds.
  • Tested and CertifIed perform with strength up to 960 lbs of body weight

Full Quick Release System

  • In unpredictable combat situations, quick-release buckles can be vital to quickly shedding the carrier and freeing oneself, especially in cases of jammed or unresponsive release mechanisms on traditional buckles.
  • Improved Maneuverability: Our Quick-release buckles help to reduce the amount of time and effort required for the removal of the armor, making it easier for users to quickly reposition.
  • Swift Medical Attention: In life-saving scenarios, the difference of seconds can often be the difference between life and death. With quick-release buckles, medical professionals can have rapid access to injuries or wounds in critical areas.
  • Versatility: The added feature of quick-release buckles provides greater versatility for the wearer. Depending on the situation, the carrier can be rapidly adjusted or removed with minimal impact on functionality.

Advanced Load Out Capable & Laser Cut Bonded Material

  • Versatility: The ability to easily change load-outs allows the wearer to customize their gear according to mission requirements, allowing them to adapt to different situations in the field. This increases the versatility of the OPSEC Plate Carrier.
  • Efficiency: A removable and changeable loadout allows soldiers or law enforcement officers to switch out equipment quickly, saving valuable time in dangerous situations. Being able to make rapid adjustments to their gear can mean the difference between life and death in certain circumstances.
  • Lightweight: Laser-cut plate carriers have less material than their traditional counterparts, which reduces overall weight. This decreases the effort required for the wearer to move, providing a more efficient maneuverability in high-stress situations.
  • Enhanced Durability: The RTS Tactical OPSEC Plate Carriers feature laser-cut materials that are more durable than those with traditional Cordura Nylon. The laser-cut edges help prevent fraying and tearing, which can be detrimental to the overall carrier's functionality during Tactical Operations

Upgraded Internal Spacer Mesh with Advanced Airway System

  • Enhanced Comfort and Breathability: Upgraded internal spacer mesh increases airflow within the plate carrier, reducing discomfort from heat and sweat build-up during prolonged use.
  • Enhanced Load Management: The RTS Tactical OPSEC provides efficient load distribution, reducing pressure points on the shoulders, back, and hips. This ensures that the wearer can comfortably carry their gear, even for extended periods.
  • Superior Impact Protection: Our upgraded internal spacer mesh enhances the impact absorption capacity of the plate carrier, reducing the severity of injuries resulting from blunt force trauma.
  • Moisture Management:  As Spacer Mesh is highly porous and absorbent, it helps to wick away moisture from the body, keeping the user dry and comfortable during the toughest missions.
