    Great Gear!

    Published by Ken Friedman on Jul 23rd 2020

    I’m very pleased with my Mission Essential PC. It’s much lighter than my other PC. Fits great. Love the buckles! Shoulder straps are wide but thin and flat so don’t interfere with mounting a rifle. Fits my 10x12 plates perfectly. Kudos to @kineticconsulting for the heads up!

    The perfect balance of form and function.

    100% as advertised and more.
    This plate carrier provides adaptable intergration to any industry standard placards ( i.e. spiritus or haley strategic) while having some well thought out features that sets it apart from other carriers. Its dual capability of running low vis OR Overt is always an awesome option to have.
    Shoulder straps are perfect, comfortable and leaves space for effectively shouldering a rifle on either side and the overall fit is AWESOME. Can maneuver effectively in shoot houses with ease with this plate carrier compared to cif issue plate carriers . Holds all of my gear and Mbitrs tight. Zero battle rattle. Simple. Effective and end user friendly. Will absolutley buy another! ( definitley would like to see more a rear plate bag options w/ more molle intergration for back panels.)

    Mission essential plate carrier

    This carrier is awesome, I ordered the size medium in woodland camo. This plate carrier is very comfortable to wear and very thin profiles as well. However, it was challenging fitting my Spartan plates in the carrier. The fitment it so snug thateven if I didn't have the plates secured in, they wouldn't go anywhere!

    Great pc all around looks nice fits nice the only thing I could wish for is less extra space in the actual plate pocket but that’s a pretty insignificant detail

    Awesome PC!

    Published by KJ on Mar 15th 2020

    I ordered a black carrier for work to replace my previous PC (ferro concepts). I liked the simplicity of the ferro concepts except it was missing a few basic essentials, i.e. front zipper and rear handle on the back plate. Another thing to notice is how much easier it is to adjust the shoulder straps. Working as an LEO, I wanted something that I could wear over my uniform and if I wanted a low profile, I just had to remove the placards. This is an awesome PC. Fits great, looks great, feels great. Can’t go wrong with these guys.

    Mission Essential Plate Carrier

    Published by CB on Feb 28th 2020

    I ordered a Ranger Green carrier and just recently received it so I can’t give a long term review yet. The build quality is excellent and on par with any other high end piece of equipment I’ve used. I have mine loaded with ESAPI style 10x12 plates without soft backers. The fit is very snug, but perfect in my opinion. I opted to pair my carrier with a Ferro Concepts elastic carry cummerbund in Ranger Green. The colors match perfectly if that’s your kinda thing. I do recommend getting the shoulder sleeves or a pad tri fold style pad due to the strap Velcro being a little rough on the neck. I decided on the DM carrier over similar ones due to the molle on the front loop section and also the cover over the rear loop that protects the rear cummerbund from being snagged. I’m more than happy with the purchase so far.
