A decade long pursuit of innovation has created the Ferro Concepts Plate Carrier (FCPC). It has maintained its status as the forefront of lightweight and adaptable plate carrier design. Largely because we just can’t leave the special operations community alone. What you see here today is the FCPC V5. The first 4 were awesome, don’t get us wrong…but we will constantly be leveling up whenever necessary.

DESIGN

Deliberate and precise pattern making to create a contoured framework for increased unity between the body and armor. These are fancy words to tell you that we know how the body moves AND we know how material moves. Combining that knowledge into the FCPC V5 makes it practically perfect with the potential to get better and better.

MATERIALS

Our 500D Cordura® laminate was created to be able to take serious abuse in real world environments. (Trader Joe’s Parking Lot on a Sunday Afternoon?) Purposefully used to replace conventional materials and construction allowing us to save weight and increase durability where it’s needed.

To help address dimensional issues with modern armor options, we integrated Tweave Durastretch® panels to allow for a wider range of armor plate fitment and retention. See? We know what we are doing.

ADAPTABILITY

Working off our ADAPT philosophy, new and updated features have been added to increase versatility. The new zip-on back panel system, integrated into the rear plate pocket, allows quick and easy swap-out of ADAPT back panels. Laser cut MOLLE rows remain for existing compatible products.

Building upon our pioneered concealed front flap attachment system, the updated front plate pocket contains concealed G-hook attachment points and provides low profile integration of all ADAPT front flaps.

For optimal fit and function, the shoulder straps were designed to enable the user to customize the carrier to their preference with strap hardware that can be swapped from side-to-side and to other forms of preferred fastening.

For heightened mission efficiency and situational awareness, the built-in full width admin pocket is accompanied with a laser cut MOLLE panel to integrate modern mobile device platforms (such as ATAK) and associated accessories.

 

Check this out guys and gals! The size of the carrier has nothing to do with your shirt size but everything to do with the size of your armor plate. When choosing your plate carrier size, you will want to pick it to fit what armor you have. READ THIS to find out more.
