BCS has designed a low profile carrier that converts the three piece front opening issue armor system into a two pieces body armor system. The new carrier design allows the individual to convert the the issue soft and hard body armor into a more effective and efficient body armor carrier system. The carrier was designed to provide maximum amount of ballistic protection and increase range of motion for the upper body. The front carrier has an internal support pocket to keep both soft inserts correctly over lapped to prevent insert movement. The BCS I also has attachment webbing for issue attachments. The carrier allows proper adjustment of front and back hard plates. The carrier is made out of 1000 denier cordura, which is very abrasion resistant. External front and back plate pockets support SAPI plates.
