  1. Matt

    I have had cheaper plate carriers in the past and this blows them out of the water. Once you get it and try it will love it. It is very comfortable. I’m a taller guy, 6’6″ and it fits well. I was able to fit 11×14 steel plates in it. They protrude only a little at the bottom but they are completely secure with the bottom securing strap.

  2. Travis Smith

    Nothing to say that hasn’t been said before. Excellent construction, well thought-out design, more comfortable than any other PC that i have used. Padding on the shoulders and down the back makes extended periods of use suck less.

  3. Lucas

    Love it, comfortable, light, low profile, good quality. Price was high yes but I think this is one I will have for a long time and will pay for itself.

    My first PC. Fit is great. Comfortable on the chest/back. PC sits high enough to cover vital organs and no head/neck movement is compromised. I run it currently with a response placard on the front. I got this because I wanted to have the protection needed just in case. I would recommend this to anyone looking for a PC. HRT personnel are quick to responses and answering any questions you may have.

  5. Aaron

    I wanted the larger AR500 plates and the number of carriers to got those was limited. I checked out two other carriers but the HRAC was by far the winner. The construction is solid, adjustments are simple, and it is very streamlined yet comfortable. The padding on the interior of the back is clutch as well. Highly recommend for any size plates.

  6. Adam S

    Need I say more? Bad ass product and it arrived in 2 days. Response placard is perfect for most situations. Awesome job!

  7. Brian

    LOVE this product. Can’t wait to get my plates for them. I’d recommend this carrier

    Very comfortable. Very durable. Easily adaptable. Great product! The response placard i got with this is genius!

  10. William

    I’m a pretty recent customer of HRT; but when I decided I needed an upgrade over the issued gear I’ve seen one website continued to show up. This carrier has an impressive amount of molecularity and adaptability. Comfort is well beyond the non-padded carriers I’m used to. What more can I say then I like my HRAC PC so much it rides shotgun in my patrol car.

  11. Bjdonohoue

    My partner and I bought 2 and we can not say enough about how awesome this plate carrier is! We work in private security as well as compete in shooting matches around the world. This plate carrier is built to take the daily abuse like no other and the weight displacement is unmatched. I’ve spent hours in mine and you hardly notice. It breaths, its comfortable, and above all I trust it.

    Great build quality. Awesome customer service. Had a small hiccup in the manufacturing process but HRT was very open with communicating it and even offered a refund, something a whole load of companies wouldn’t dream of doing. Have already recommended to colleagues and friends.

  22. Brad

    Great carrier. Fits 10”x12” steel plates w/build up coat and trauma pads nice and snug but doesn’t feel like it’s stressing the stitching much at the same time. Easy to make size adjustments. Shoulder padding is just enough without feeling bulky (although if you have a thick neck like me the insides will pinch and rub a little). Very easy to move/twist around and in. Love the modularity options (waiting to budget swift clip panel arrangements). Quality piece and highly recommended if you’re not required to have a quick release system.

  25. Edward P.

    Probably the most comfortable pc I’ve ever owned. The pontoons really keep the corners of the plates off of me eliminating my usual hotspots at the lower corners and provides an air channel for circulation. They also eliminate the need for backers if you have stand alone plates. Plate pockets secure extremely well on the bottom (with a rip cord to access), enough room for plate and spall sheet in the front, might be able to squeeze a thin map pack/poncho in with the rear plate.
    I purchased the adaptive pc so I could utilize my existing hydration system. It secures well and doesn’t flop around using the Molle loops, but the RAC model looks like it would be rock solid with the zip on systems (and adaptability). The front, well, you’re gonna need a placard.
    Shoulder straps adjust quick and easy, angle is good, no chaffing around my neck, comfortable but not heavily padded, loops are good for hydration tubes or comm wires. M-4 rifle shoulders well.
    Supplied cummerbund is quick donning/doffing, probably a good idea for maritime work, but I went with the upgraded cummerbund to accommodate side plate pockets and radio/IFAK/mag pouches.
    Good color, matches Other popular manufacturers gear.
    Medium size fits 10” x 12” plates well, might need a large if your running really thick polymer plates.

  26. Michael

    The website had me expecting a long lead-time for delivery, but it was on my doorstep within a week. The carrier feels very well built: all the stitching is tight, the material is sturdy, and construction is just solid all around. I loaded the carrier with AR500 10X12 III+ plates and they fit very securely.

    Very good product. Would recommend using for LE when get called to a hot call and need extra protection or get the cummerbund and use for tactical situations. I like the how “flat” it is by the chest area. Doesnt change cheek weld too much. The raised inner channels are awesome. Gonna order the extra padding for air circulation. Fast shipping and good communication.

    This is an excellent carrier. Very well made a durable with plenty of versatility especially considering the price. It’s incredibly comfortable to boot. HRT has held to their reputation also. Fast shipping. Great product. I’m definitely a fan

    Best plate carrier for the money! I love the fact that I can easily shoulder my weapon without all kinds of bulky material being in the way. The fabric is awesome and durable and the size and beyond perfect. The carrier almost (at least for my build) 5”11 200lbs feels like it was tailored to my upper body!

    Ordered during the shutdown due to covid, which really delayed manufacturing/shipping (completely understandable), but HRT was great about keeping me updated about delays and the delivered product is great.

    The HRAC plate carrier along with the Maximus placard is simply fantastic. My questions along the way were answered quickly and I would not hesitate to do business with HRT again.

    Currently utilizing the budget friendly LAPG Level IV Plates and they fit perfectly.

    The shoulder straps are simple and unobtrusive which makes it better when shouldering a rifle.

    The single strap cummerbund works but upgrading to the Molle or QR cummerbund is a no brainer here.

    Stitching on all seams appears very durable. I tried stressing the seams while the plates were in the carrier and they wouldn’t budge.

    Adjustability is great I’m 5’10 180 and it fits snug and doesn’t move around at all.

    I’m in Arizona so as with any plate carrier it gets hot. Would recommend the pontoon set for added airflow if you’re in a hellish environment.

    Overall very happy with this carrier and HRT. This carrier is just as good if not better than some of the bigger names in the industry. Look forward to putting this carrier through more abuse.

  77. Derek M.

    Very well made, super lite and the material is pliable and moves very well conspired to other carriers that are very stiff and you have to wear them in. The Ranger green matches the Esstac brand mag pouches very closely too.

    Great carrier for the money my only issue (which is minor) is that on of the elastic bands on the side (for cable management I’m assuming) was Partially ripped . Other than that very comfortable.

    I am really pleased with this carrier. Channels really help with the sweat, incredibly modular, and priced right. It was a tight fit with my 10×12 ceramic plates with trauma pads but I suppose you want it tight. I have not taken this on any hard training sessions yet but working out with it fully loaded I have been pleased with it. HRT was really easy to work with after a shipping issue and instantly made it right. Fine company and good products.

    Thoughts: currently I have in it 2x Lvl3+ ar500 (8lb/ea) plates with trauma pads, an HRT rifle placard, side elastic pouch, tourniquet dongle pouch, 4x ar mags 2x glock mags, all loaded. I am a husky American.

    The Plate Carrier has a tight fit for a 10×12 plates (better tight than loose). With everything adjusted correctly for my body the weight distribution is good. Despite most of the weight on the front of the plate carrier, it doesn’t sag forward. It actually doesn’t shift around at all in normal motions. When my chest rotates the PC moves with it perfectly. After removing the internal pontoons it is pretty comfortable. The adjustment range is very large. I am using the smallest shoulder adjustments to get correct height on the plates. There’s 1 1/2” of excess Velcro attachment that I tuck in behind the shoulder-pad wrap.

    •no-nonsense shoulder straps makes shouldering a stock easy.
    •an actual internal sleeve for changing pontoon inserts
    •shoulder pads work well
    •buckle system for the chest band works well.
    •has bands for 2 or 3 leg cummerbunds, and space for a full passthrough cummerbund. This makes the plate carrier compatible with many cummerbunds.
    •the shoulder straps and the chest band don’t loosen when wearing heavy plates.

    •Excess stitching on the bottom corners, pinching abdomen occasionally. This is due to the plate retention design, which is passable. If moving towards a traditional retention design would eliminate the lower corner stitching, please do that. Not a huge deal, but the first thing I would fix. Actually, just please fix this.
    •the internal pontoon “padding” that came inside the pontoon sleeves caused the entire weight of the PC to rest on two pressure points on my chest and back, and was extremely uncomfortable. This is super minor, as you can remove the internal padding. (Please, HRT, don’t ship the PCs with this padding inside. It’s not worth it.)

    Overall, I’m glad I went with this one over my other options. I almost got the TT Rouge or the SPC, but this one exceeded my expectations. Many competitors’ PCs are about equal in cost to this PC plus the HRT placard, so HRT gives me more options

    Comfortable and really well made. My only criticism is in regard to the internal pontoons. They are a little too thick and they push the PC a bit too far off the body. I also wish there was cushioning in the space inbetween the pontoons.

  105. Michael F.

    Shipped in declared lead time. Molle straps feel like cheap material, but are still sewn in well. Go with the quick release cummerbund, the Velcro cummerbund is annoying with having to lift the placard. The cummerbunds have to be tied in the back, instructions on line really leave it open for you to decide, and adjustment is difficult if you’re a bigger guy. I’m 6’3 220 lbs and it’s close to not working for me. 10×12 level 4 plates fit, but it isn’t the best fit, the material bends weird at the top, it’s not cut the same as the plates. Other than a weird warping with the plates, annoying cummerbund, and the height level of and pouches attached to the cummerbund (stupid high), it appears to be well constructed so far.

    Good fit. Well made. Simple but versatile. As comfortable as armor/carrier can be. Get the pontoons and it’s comfortable for the whole day.

  107. Corey ware

    This is the perfect plate carrier system. It fits like a glove with no extra useless material.

    The Shoulder straps are perfectly placed so you can shoulder your weapon without touching the thick padding on the straps throwing off your aim.

    The material and stitching feels rugged and strong.

    cummerbund allows you to quickly adjust the plate carrier to whatever clothing you are wearing.

    But most of all The easy change of the placard’s that is awesome!

    In my opinion this is a top-notch plate carrier I would not choose anything over it I am completely 100% sold and I will tell others to buy it as well.

    Like all HRT products this plate carrier is very high quality. The biggest difference between this one and my HRT RAC plate carrier is the zippers for the back pouches the RAC has. However there is plenty of molle to make up for it

Plenty of options for placards and other accessories to add to it. My 10×12 plates fit nice and snug with no wiggle room. There is a little bit of extra room on the bottom of the plate bags with 10×12’s. It will accept any type of lace up style(in the back) cummerbund.

    I don’t like the way the plates are installed. The Velcro flap should’ve went to the back of the plate. It would’ve made it easier to push up underneath the plate and remove it. If you’re going to keep it the same maybe send a thin plate shaped plastic peace to help insert the plates and the flap. I like the plate carrier it works well and it’s comfortable.

    Like the gear. Just had to follow up on the order and found it was never shipped. Follow up would be nice to keep people up to date on the orders

    Super clean, effective, and lightweight. A great product

  135. Daniel P.

    The value is outstanding. The quality is very high. The weight is very reasonable. My only complaint is not having the option to buy the cumberbund of choice with the carrier. So, I now have a 1.5″ cumberbund taking up space in a closet. It would be a value added option to offer a $10 discount to buy this with the molle cumberbund. Those two together are an excellent system.

    Love the plate carrier so far. It was easy to adjust and feels really solid. I’m just waiting on the tourniquet hanger

    Great carrier, Love that Green!
    Unfortunately only available in one size, medium. Would prefer if it came in a larger option at the same cost and features

    Very well made, been wearing it in, working out in the desert, keeps as cool as possible. Only reason it’s not 5 stars is that there should be an option to order it with the upgraded cummerbund. Even if just to save on waste. Correct me if there is, and I’m just blind.

    Love it. Great fit and feel.

  141. Joé K.

    In my opinion a great plate carrier. It’s compfortable, breathable and fits perfect. This is now my favorite plate carrier, I use it for training on the range. I can recommend this plate carrier, especially when you are not a tall person.

    Amazing carrier. Shipped fast. I love the modularity yet minimalist aspect of this. Quick to don and doff. Very comfortable. A lot a value and quality for the price.

    Well worth the price, quality built plate rack. Very comfortable to wear for the hours at a time I’m in it.

    The quality was good. The cummerbund was very uncomfortable and had to connect once on. After changing this I really enjoyed it.

    Great carrier for LEO. Stout enough to put everything i need on it but slimline enough to throw on over the uniform. Excellent build quality.

    Very pleased with my carrier. I haven’t gotten to put plates in it yet but it appears to be well constructed and is represented accurately in the pictures/descriptions. I also love whoever sprayed cologne in the bag haha. That was a pleasant surprise. Keep doing that. Will definitely be ordering more soon.

    Great plate carrier, especially for the price. I don’t think that you could find a better quality plate carrier for what your paying for with this one. You can definitely tell it’s made from high quality material and they pay attention to detail.

  161. Mario

    Honestly, the piece of gear you can have! I have this for duty, and range use. Looking forward to trying out their quick detach cummerbund pretty soon. Definitely recommend! Keep up the awesome work, HRT!

  162. Reese B.

    Love everything about your company. Great customer service! I had ordered the wrong Vest. I put in a return. Ordered the new one. They got it shipped to me in 3 days from order date.

    Overall the fit and quality is great. I also enjoy the integrated padding and airflow channels on the inside. The cummerbund leaves some to be desired and I will probably be changing it out for an elastic option.

  165. Eric

    Pretty nice carrier. The only complaint is the security of the hook and loop on the placard in relation to the carrier. It can be a bit weak. Other than that this carrier is well stitched, formed and kept to minimum. Fits shotstop g2 plates incredibly well

  166. Nickolas K.

    Great fit and quality. Delivered quick too!

  167. Scott S.

    Good and comfortable plate carrier. Easy to set up and stow.

  168. Michael Fratto

    The fit is amazing no matter how much adjusting you need to do

  169. Eduardo Z.

    This is my first ever plate carrier. Picked up some composite body armor from another site. Inserted the body armor into the plate carrier with ease. Then adjusted the side straps so that the fit was a bit more than snug. Then I did some jumping jacks and burpees to make sure the setup didn’t slosh around. As an average guy I don’t think I’ll need a cummerbund or the placard with the extra mag pouches that go on the front. They look cool but I don’t foresee needing to have then. Overall 100% satisfied with this purchase. I don’t expect any carrier to be comfortable, but this carrier actually feels great. As a wise man once said, “buy a cardigan if you want to feel comfortable!”
    From one average person to another average person I recommend this product.

    Well made piece of equipment, holds plate in place better than I’ve ever seen with any other carrier.

    Great product that fits perfectly.

    So far ive loved the HRT HRAC. Im a smaller guy and i was worried it would be to large on me. However it proved to be highly adjustable and you can feel the quality when you pick it up. The velcrow is stronger than I had expected and it wont move an inch on you when your movin’ an groovin.

    I ordered the black medium and fits like a dream! Fast shipping also.

    This kit is amazing, I’m able to shoulder my rifle perfectly and the quality is amazing! I wish I had this in Iraq!! It’s hella comfortable

  177. Steven Coffman

    The HRAC is fantastic quality especially for the price point. Materials are excellent, stitching is very well done and high quality. My multicurve ceramic plates fit snug and have no movement at all. I paired it with the Maximus Placard as well as the pontoons and is without a doubt the most comfortable plate carrier I’ve ever worn! I’m very happy with the system.

    Shouldering the rifle stock is difficult due to slippery material covering.

  184. michael leon

    I’m sorry. I don’t like to give bad reviews but I will in hopes that you change the way you manufacture this plate carrier. 1- the shoulder pads were way to thin, almost none existent and immediately I felt a hot spot on my shoulder. 2- the rear padding, which are two pieces that run the length of the plate carrier might as well have been two pieces of 2×2 wood, they were so hard. I immediately removed them but since there isn’t anymore padding other then those two strips and the fabric is so thin, I immediately started to feel the curvature of the ballistic plate on my back. Also since it’s just a nylon fabric pressed against your back, you start to sweat bullets after about 5 minutes. 3- the way the plate is held in the plate carrier pocket, it does not allow you to tuck a flat IFAK kit between the ballistic plate.
    I didn’t not like it one bit and immediately changed back to my condor MOPC.

  185. Jane

    Super high quality with solid stitching. Awesomely adjustable even for a gal built kind of like a beanpole. Holds 10×12 plates snugly but without stretch. Also distributes weight just great, even with a loaded up placard. Also comfortable to wear in a range of weather. A+

    Very comfortable, super adjustable, incredibly lightweight.

    The carrier is surprisingly comfortable. Attached with the cummerbund, making it easier to take on and off and make adjustments, as well as, the Maximus placard. It suits my needs and has exceeded my expectations. My only complaint (and this is most likely my fault due to the cut), is that my plates do not seat all the way in the carrier, so there is about an inch of play at the top.

    Extremely well made using the most durable nylon and stitching. I ordered the HRT HRAC and the HRT Response Placard. I found a local veteran owned gun shop in Phoenix to buy my Ace Link IIIA PS Armor Plates, which fit perfectly in chest and back body armor sleeves. And now I’ve just places my order with HRT Tactical and purchased the HRT Zip-On Panel MOLLE Adapters and the HRT Zip-On HydroMax Pack to finish off this plate carrier build. After our lawmakers in Washington DC completely failed to protect law-abiding non-criminals from their militant leftist ideologue enforcers in 2020, I decided that my life, my safety, my God given natural right to self preservation, was MY responsibility and not the very government that was simultaneously trying to limit and prevent my Constitutional right to own a firearm, while also advocating for the defunding of American law enforcement agencies across the country. This plate carrier build project, along with an HK MP-5 SBR and a Shadow Systems MR920L Elite, Surefire X300B, Trijicon RMR projects are my response to Washington DC’S decision to punish law abiding Americans, while advocating for and defending the career criminals who these political elites have placed as their highest priority. So go ahead Nancy and Corn-Pop, defund whatever. I’m ready.
