The V-Ops Plate Carrier Chest Rig is the industries first and only completely customizable hybrid plate carrier. Constructed by hand here in Oceanside, CA with 1000 Denier Cordura and backed by our lifetime warranty, this rugged and dependable rig can stand up to any test or mission you can find. Combining a simple plate carriage system with a detachable and interchangeable chest rig platform, BDS Tactical is able to offer you a Plate Carrier that can accept different mission specific platforms, which can each be customized here at BDS Tactical. The chest rig platform is attached to the front of the V-Ops Plate Carrier with PALS webbing and to the rear with modular T-Handles and side release buckles (seen below) that can be adjusted for fit.
Padded Shoulder Straps feature a 4x2 field of PALS webbing for routing hydration tubes or comm cords, and can be adjusted for fit at 4 separate points. 1" Webbing connects the shoulder straps to the body of the plate carrier at adjustable heights, allowing for increased comfort and preventing shoulder strap roll-over.
You can create a completely modular Plate Carrier with a detachable chest rig, capable of carrying any of your MOLLE compatible pouches and gear, or you can choose from tons of upgrades to build your own fully-loaded combat rig designed to keep you and your weapon system in the fight. Here's how it breaks down:
Center Combat Load Options
After selecting a color, you can determine what type of mag load out, if any, you want to have sewn onto the detachable rig. With the exception of the "Patrol? style pouches, all combat load pouch styles have fully removable lids, and our "Stacker and "Platform styles feature PALS webbing for attaching modular pouches or organizing loose small items. Further, each pouch in our "Universal Loadout can carry up to (3) 30 rd. 5.56 magazines, (2) 20 rd. .308 or 30 rd. AK magazines and a large variety of other common magazine types, all retained securely with elastic bands for a tight fit no matter the quantity. AK and .308 specific V-Ops Platforms are also available for purchase in our V-Ops product line. If you choose to go without a sewn on load out, a 10x4 area of PALS webbing will be sewn onto the rig to accommodate removable MOLLE compatible modular pouches. As with all BDS Tactical 5.56 ammo pouches, these combat load upgrades were designed specifically to fit USGI mags, but will accommodate Magpul PMAGs or Troy BattleMags.
Next, you'll be able to choose from (8) different right and left hand side upgrades to your detachable rig. Sewn-on options include Padded or Zippered GP Pouches, Medical Pouches with internal elastic storage loops, Squad Leader Admin Pouches with upgraded internal organization, SAW Drum Pouches that double as spent mag stores, and Vertical Draw Holsters, complete with bungee retention lanyards. Make up your own style or build a rig to fit unit SOPs, the choices are yours. Of course, if you choose to go without a sewn on load out, a 4x4 area of PALS webbing will be sewn onto the rig to accommodate removable MOLLE compatible modular pouches.
An internal Admin pouch can be sewn inside the zippered chest rig body to organize administrative items like maps, compasses, GPS or Wind-reading Devices, or any other miscellaneous stuff you might need on your person and not in your pack.
Side Plate Pouch Upgrade
Removable Side Plate Pouches can also be purchased. The plate accommodate up to 6"x8" Side Plates, and attach to the interior sides of the detachable chest rig in sewn on pockets lined with hook & loop.
We offer a number of other accessories, including Bungee Mag Retention Adapters (to exchange with your removable mag lids whenever you see fit), Butt Stock Non-slip Retention Pads, Admin Pouches, and 100 oz. Bladders. Pick whatever you need to make your rig work for you.
