High Speed Gear (HSGI) is coming out with a brand-new low-profile Core Plate Carrier for use with small, medium, large, and x-large body armor plates.

The Core is a ruggedly-designed, affordable plate carrier specifically built for law enforcement or range/training use. The Core is built to be comfortable and low profile, with padded shoulder straps and spacer mesh interior. The carrier is sturdy and adjustable, with a streamlined design that is versatile, comfortable and has plenty of laser-cut MOLLE for scalability. The Core is ideal for an officer building your quick reaction/active shooter kit, a student shopping for required equipment for training, or a responsibly-armed citizen gearing up for tactical range time.

“The idea of the Core Plate Carrier began when we had customers of varying professions and backgrounds asking for a low-profile plate carrier,” said Bill Babboni, HSGI vice president of sales and operations. “We went through multiple design variations to create the Core as we took in input from both law enforcement and military members. We wanted to bring all the features possible at this price point, with more accessories coming soon.”
