Recon Plate Carrier by warrior

The RPC has been developed to hold medium and large SAPI and ESAPI stand alone plates and the most common 10" x 12" I.C.W. plates available.

Plate pockets have been backed with 3D mesh for added ballistic performance comfort and dispersal of body heat. The Recon Plate Carrier comes standard with ladder style cummerbunds that attach to the RPCs front via 2 removable ITW SR Clips.

This allows rapid access when getting in and out of the RPC (ITW SR Clips have a combined breaking strength of 600lbs per side). The RPCs shoulders can be worn in 3 different configurations as a slick low profile with the addition of Velcro padded shoulders and wrap around sleeve for hydration and comms channelling.

The RPC comes as standard with a removable MOLLE front flap held in place by 2 vertical SQM clips and strong velcro which allows the panel to be removed and replaced with a wide variety of preconfigured weapon-specific pouch panels and Warrior’s new Pathfinder Chest Rig. The RPC integrates with Warrior's new Back Panel.

Made from Genuine US Mil Spec Materials and Hardware.

Hard Armour
  • Stand alone plates, 250mm x 300mm (10" x 12")and SAPI 238mm x 314mm (9.5" x 12.5")
  • ICW plates 250mm x 300mm and SAPI 238mm x 314mm, with Nexus NIJ 3a soft armour.

All Warrior lightweight plate carriers are designed to work with Nexus style SAPI shaped 10" x 12" ( 250mm + x 300mm + ) ballistic plates including bevelled edge ceramic plates and smooth edge composite plates.

Steel plates with hard edges and corners should be wrapped to protect the internals of the carriers to avoid excessive wear.

High Quality Threads

Thread quality is fundamental to the construction, durability and strength of tactical equipment.

Two factors have a negative impact on the life Span of threads

  1. Mildew is one of the most common factors in the deterioration of military kit, causing it to rot and ultimately results in unacceptable failure.
  2. Sunlight has a harmful effect on the performance of threads, and over time causes their deterioration.

Warrior only uses the highest quality US Mil Spec nylon threads imported from the USA which are threated against both UV and Mildew.

  • Fiber Resistance to Acid - Good
  • Fiber Resistance to Alkali - Good
  • Fiber Abrasion Resistance - Excellent
  • Fiber Resistance to Heat - 142 deg C (Highest continuous temperature before breakdown)
  • Fiber Melting Point - 265 deg C

500D Nylon fabric feature enhanced tear and abrasion resistance, and long lasting durability, 500D Nylon fabric made with solution dyed yarns are inherently stain resistant and easy to clean. MultiCam, Coyote Tan, Ranger Green, Black and A-TACS FG fabrics are all I.R Treated for the lowest signature.

Defenitly recommend it, it is well worth the price !
  • Great for thin / skinny people like me, I am 180 cm tall (5"9) and 74 kg (163 pounds) after few easy adjustments.
  • It is more confortable than I expected, really nice !
  • It feels very solid and durable.
  • The colors are perfects.
  • The included fake plates are a very appreciable add for airsoft players.
  • I would have liked a bit of elastics on the cummerbund to make it fit perfectly.

Rated option: Recon Plate Carrier, Warrior, Coyote, M, without pouches

I recommend, but it takes a lot of adjustments.
  • Mesh - well ventilated Wide range of accessories Just take the light foam sheets on the shooting range, which are already in the vest when it comes
  • Poor quality sewn-in holders, eg hoses from a hydravak - steam (on the shoulder) Overlaps on the side make it impossible to attach molle accessories

A good plate carrier at an affordable price. I recommend the vest ... but it's not a carrier for everyone. So far, the manufacturer only produces in sizes M, L and does not always fit properly
  • Good color, quality material, properly sewn, does not last and does not steam.
  • Complicated adjustment on the back (but still effective), the buckles close a little harder

I definitely recommend the vest to people who are looking for a light and low profile carrier. I've had enough of velcro vest fastening under the front pocket and the new quick-release buckles used by other manufacturers didn't suit me very well, but there the problem with placing the bags further away from the side of the body. Overall, I am very satisfied with the vest and we will see what it can stand.
  • Very high quality plate carrier, which is very light and at the same time robustly made. The mesh on the front and back is very comfortable to wear and helps to the overall comfort of this carrier and is also very functional in terms of sweat and heat dissipation. The shoulder straps are interestingly designed with the possibility of removing all the layers and leaving only the fabric itself, but again, for greater comfort, it is better to leave at least the reinforced mesh. The shoulder straps are a little further apart until they may seem to fall out of a person, but this solution does not interfere with me in any way and I still feel very comfortable and without problems. If I put a backpack on my back, it occurs to me that thanks to the spacing between the shoulder straps, it is even better worn than with other carriers. Adjusting the size of the vest is quick thanks to the velcro. The buckles are very sturdy and I wouldn't be afraid that they will last forever. As a bonus, the warrior also imitates plates so that the vest stays in shape. Really very great small, compact, light plate carrier.
  • Unfortunately, it does not have space for bonnet plates, which must be assumed with the purchase. I see the biggest disadvantage in the fact that the first bags that one can put on the side of the carrier can be tied behind the side clips, it's really far and you won't get to any bag you need to reach more often. The ideal choice is, for example, ifak, which is removable after grinding the clip on the catfish. There is a bit of a problem with the admin bag, as the first molle binding does not start right above but about one row below, so the admin bag is also lower, closer to the magazine bags, if you use Bren or AK magazines, you will have a bit of a problem, that you will mind the admin bag. The point is to get the appropriate dimensions of the admin bag for the designated trays.
