    The product is very, very good but the customer phone support is almost non existent.

    I got the vest and it’s amazing. What failed to be listed was that using ups for shipping this item,( which in the receipt shows 40 $) fails to state anything about a brokerage fee. It costed me almost the same price as the vest just to receive the item. Figure it should be more apparent as I would not have purchased this item knowing.

    besides that, the vest is high quality and I had planned to purchase pouches and such for the vest but don’t think I will be doing so now.

    (also I got the wrong damn vest but I bother won’t other sending it back now)

    This shouldn’t feel like a compromise for price/quality. For those of you eyeing the Thorax or JPC, HRT as a company has the same quality and attention to detail without name brand affecting the price. My favorite plate carrier by far, you won’t be disappointed.

    This plate carrier has been a game changer in my line of work. Whether I’m training or have a mission it has done its job. The very light weight plates to the Maximus placard that allows me to have most everything I need on the front of my plate carrier with easy access. Also the rear zip panel to have my med kit for easy access with either hand. I can’t be more satisfied with my purchases.

    Currently a big fan of this plate carrier. After messing around with it shouldering rifles and moving in kit, I removed the shoulder quick release and trimmed 2-3″ off the tops of the foam inserts that sit behind the plate because the very top interfered with my buttstock. Since purchase I’ve gone in and added the 3 row molle cummerbund with quick releases, 2 wing pouches, the TQ holder and the 3 mag placard. Only issues I had with my dealings with HRT were the slight mods mentioned above and shipping. Shipping was timely considering the coronavirus situation, but sometime after ordering my shipping address got altered to exclude my unit number (same thing happened on all but 1 of 3-4 separate purchases. I had to wait until postal tracking listed my address as insufficient and go to the post office and find all the packages. In terms or product, I’ve got a lot of faith in HRT’s gear and innovative ideas though, keep up the great work!

    Unbelievable fit and finish. Quite easily my most favorite piece of gear now. Can’t wait to LARP around with the boi-os with this one! Actually sent links to all my buddies to pick some up for themselves.
    Currently running the RMA 1155 ceramics in it and they fit nicely. As per some other reviews, you’ll want to keep a stiff envelope or some cardboard nearby to get the plate retaining velcro fields nice and snug.
    All the kids at the airsoft arenas are going to be big jealous. But seriously excited to run it through both rifle and pistol classes. Doc said it even made the pecker grow a few inches.*

    Product is well made and priced correctly for what you get but as a first time buyer (this is my fault) it’s hard to gauge what size you need i bought a large and I realize now I’m a medium. I’m on the very minimum of adjustment to the carrier to make it work, so if your a Tall slim guy like myself get the medium.

    Top notch gear. Quality materials and heavy stitching should hold up to anything I’ll put it through. Storage space big enough for utility essentials and a med kit.

    Work mandated we have vests available for high risk calls and active shooter situations. They issued a vest type style that was bulky, uncomfortable and not user friendly. After some research I ordered the HRT RAC. I upgraded the cummerbund, added a Maximus placard and 2 multi hangers (For radio). After playing with it for a bit, I have made the Maximus a Med kit for basic quick trauma. Shears, TRIAGE Tags, Sharpie, Chest Seal, Decompression needles, Trauma dressings and 2 tourniquets. Running lvl III soft armor. So far it has been very comfortable in training scenarios. It is and will probably always be a work in progress.

    Awesome carrier, the plate pocket can easily fit large plates. Would like a dedicated medium plate pocket with its own retention. The shoulder strap is not replaceable. I initially planned to swap it with a cobra buckle but it doesn’t seem possible. I also would have preferred the Velcro under the placard to cover the entire area instead of two separate pads.

  111. Avatar


    Simply the most comfortable plate carrier period. Wore for hours after arrival doing normal everyday things fully loaded to 31lbs and never got hot spots and could hardly tell I had it one.
    One side note.. the Maximus plaques did a little thicker then anticipated. By the time you add plates, mags and out some admin essentials in the pouches it’s almost a thick as a triple m4 setup. I might be changing the Maximus out for the basic triple m4 pouch. Will have to see if this become an issue when going prone or not

    I bought this carrier for myself. I am 5’-10” with a chest size 41”. This carrier is ideal from 41”-45” chest range. If I was any skinnier, I may of had to go with the HRAC. That one is ideal for people with chest range of 37”-40”. But I think there can be some tolerance made if you are borderline for either size. Great carrier. Super modular and versatile to meet anyone tactical needs.

    A lightweight plate carrier with a plethora of modularity. It’s got a whole lot of room for adjustment in the shoulder strap area; which is a point of contention for many other plater carriers. I’m not built like a tank (5’7″ and 156 on a good day), and this plate carrier fits me very well with (or without) the pontoon inserts installed on the front/back. The double stitching is solid and I suspect it’ll hold up to many field exercises/range outings in the future. 10/10 would purchase again!

    Great product, and great customer service. estimated lead time was 4 to 6 weeks, it was here in about 2 weeks. Good quality build and packaged very nicely. My only complaint
    is that the bottom of the plate pocket is left open. Wish there was either velcro or a flap in addition to the interior plate flap for extra security or to close the opening, at the bottom. Otherwise great carrier, and accessories. Would recommend to anyone.

    Absolutely perfect. The pontoons feel amazing compared to a slick interior and the shoulder are much more padded than they loom. Much more robust design then the crye JPC and still lightweight and functional. Plates fit great in them and the carrier fits snug to the body. Movement feels so much faster in this that a standard flack jacket. Fine work, and an exceptional price. Thanks HRT

    So I bought this because Warrior Poet Society had it on their website. Holy crap this is comfortable to wear and I just love all the attachments available (ordered them after but can wait to get the Maximus Placard and the Hydration Pack). I’ve already recommended to a bunch of friends. It’s nice that it’s cheaper than the general go to at 5.11 (not hating on their also good product but this is cheaper). I look forward to using this during training.

    Awesome. Great fit. Plate pockets are secure. Good, useable real estate on the carrier.

    I love the RAC Plate Carrier because it is very comfortable and extremely modular. The back panel options really allow for the carrier to be customized for individual missions.

    I find the plate carrier and all the accessories that I bought to be of excellent quality. However, they all came in a box with no instructions. By trial and error and also searching for on-line videos, I managed to get everything properly assembled. I love the gear, but I would suggest the inclusion of some instructions or at least links to instructional videos in the box.

    One of the most comfortable carriers I’ve ever owned, honestly fits and feels better than my JPC, paired with the Maximus placard , hydromax back panel, and the quick detach cummerbund, great stitching and materials, RMA 1155’s they chonks but are a nice snug fit.

    A great quality carrier that works with thicker plates but my Hesco L210 plates did not fit in it well and were loose and moved around a lot so I had to buy another carrier for those plates.

    I ordered the RAC plate carrier a while back, and let me just say it is without a doubt the best carrier I’ve ever owned. Because of the insane demand it does take a while to get (about 6 weeks if I recall), but its deff been well worth the wait. Because I was so happy with the carrier I ordered the quick release cummerbund as well. This combined with the maximus placard and hydromax back panel has made for a really great setup at a reasonable price. Again, there is a wait involved with some of these products, but the customer service has been outstanding and the quality of the gear has been amazing imo.

    I love it with the exception of the left buckle on the carrier. Though the right side is stitched on, the left is not. Because of the velcro, it makes it seem unimportant but that fact lingers still.

    Joy in Customer Service was awesome! Assisted with all questions and got my RAC ordered. The RAC Fits like a minimalist carrier, with the capability to carry so much more. This is a great addition to both my duty kit and personal use kit. It shipped and was received within a week of ordering. Definitely a fan!!!!

  218. Avatar


    Well constructed kit! The PC listed above (Rac) indicated that it would accommodate Med/Lrg plates. We run medium plates with our kits but opted for this model due to its quick release feature. Unfortunately our plates did not fit properly with this particular model. This is a common issue issue with “one size fits all” designs. HRT customer service was outstanding and got us straightened out extremely quickly.

    Seems to be quality made. Not bulky like other plate carriers. Purchased the front placard and rear molle placard and they were not to $$$$. Only complaint is the hydration placard is real $$$$$$$ for hydration only. Can get an aftermarket molle hydration pack for 1/3 of cost. Other than that system is awesome. Customer service is great!

    I pretty much can assume at this point anything WPS recommends is worth it. I’ve used A LOT of carriers over the years, this is now one of my primary ones. You can tell A LOT of thought went into these, from additional reinforcement on areas that rub to the added no cost pontoons. They are worth the wait when you order. I picked up their quick release cummerbund and medium zip on pack as well. The material in these and felt construction feel more robust to me than others at higher price ranges. 100% recommended!

    Your product is great. Your service isn’t. When I made my purchase, the item was in stock. After a few days I inquired and I was advised that it was not and that I would have to wait a month. The wait was not the issue. It was the total lack of communication after my money was taken. As a business owner, that is a solid pass in my book.

    I’m a tall skinny guy (6’4” 200lbs) so I needed to adjust the straps to be as tight as possible, and it still doesn’t come up high enough in the back. This nulls the quick release function on the shoulder strap. But very comfortable and disperses the load well.

    I love the HRT RAC, my only real issue with either of the two that I own is that I have to tighten the shoulder straps almost as far as they can be tightened in order for the plates to be in the correct position. Even now, I don’t have them 100% adjusted how I’d want them to be.

    Im more than excited about my RAC Plate Carrier. It was all I expected plus more. Very durable, solid build. Ive used it at the range training and I have no complaints about it. Fit my 10×12 plates perfect. They don’t move around while inside the carrier. All of my attachment I purchased went on with ease. I definitely recommend this PC as well as the Maximus Placard and the Hydromax Zip On Pak. Awesome company, fast shipping and great customer service. I will be purchasing more from them soon.

    The HRT RAC in MultiCam, is absolutely the best plate carrier I have ever had! Super comfortable and totally modular.
    HRT, where have you been all my life?!
    For transparency, here’s a rundown of my kit load-out. I chose to run the HRT Maximus Placard up front, with the Ferro Concepts Roll 1 Trauma Pouch dangling underneath. On the back I’m running the HRT Dual GP Pouches down low as two individual BooBoo Kits, and up top I have the HRT Zip-On Maximus Pouch. Around the sides I have the HRT Quick Release Cummerbund with the Ace Link IIIA Soft Armor inserts (not pictured). To round it off, I have the 10”x12” Shooters Cut, Ace Link Level III+ UltraLight PE Ceramic Special Threat Rifle Plates front and back.
    Sounds like a lot, but would you believe that the loaded weight of this full kit, with 3 loaded AR mags & 2 loaded G17 mags, squeaks by at just over a cool 23 lbs?
    So, in closing, what I’m trying to say is, get one! You will not regret it!
