Guardian Plate Carrier

Where ballistic protection and quick access to tactical equipment are essential, the Guardian Plate Carrier vest proves its worth. This is a carrier for ballistic plates with a modular pocket system for gear. The Guardian Plate Carrier is designed so that each user can choose the appropriate configuration for themselves. Helikon-Tex offers two ready-made sets, but each component can also be purchased separately to build an individual set.

    What ballistic plates fit the Guardian Plate Carrier?

    Size M: 31,5 x 24,5 cm

    Size L: 34 x 26,5 cm

    Depending on the manufacturer, the dimensions of ballistic plates may vary. We allow for a plate tolerance of approximately 1cm due to the elasticity of the pockets. The Guardian Plate Carrier is compatible, among others, with SAPI standard plates for sizes M and L. Before purchasing, it's important to measure your existing ballistic plates to avoid mistakes. The Guardian is compatible with the most popular shapes of ballistic plates, namely E-Cut (SAPI/ESAPI), Swimmer Cut, and Shooter Cut.

    Guardian Military Set

    The Guardian Military Set is assembled with active-duty soldiers in mind. It includes three main components: the Guardian Plate Carrier tactical vest, modular side panels called Guardian Cummerbund, and a front panel Guardian Flap. The entire system is designed to meet the expectations of modern armed forces. The modular system compatible with MOLLE/PALS allows for gear customization depending on needs and tasks.
