    Very comfortable, high quality material and stitching. The standard strap it comes with is adjustable and the pontoons make it easy to breath and stay cool with plates in. Profoundly satisfied with my carrier.

    I’m a bigger guy, this doesn’t provide adequate coverage of the vital area

    Came as described and is very high quality. The stitching in particular is excellent. It holds my plates very well and appears to be very versatile when it comes to fitting different types and sizes of plates.

  16. Kody B.

    Amazing customer service!

  17. Johnny H.

    I do not have much experience with plate carries. However I have purchased and use other types of critical equipment and this is top notch.

  18. Hunter Lafever

    Absolutely perfect

  19. Scott B.

    Very comfortable flexible fit! It has been extremely useful in my workouts during this COVID 19 quarantine

  20. Shelby B.

    I’m a small dude 5’8″ 170lbs not very wide shoulders. I am able to shoulder my rifles no problem while wearing the PC. Extremely comfortable, and easily adjustable. Looking forward to putting this through some rigorous training.

  21. Michael

    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.

  22. Braden D.

    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!

    Solid. No loose threads and fabric is legitimate Cordura. The quick release is changeable to left/right shoulder. Plates fit nicely inside plate pocket. Not a fan of the cummerbund and will be changing it out for a different quick release.

  32. Joshua

    Awesome design, comfortable to wear, sturdy, low profile, easy quick detach. Would easily trust my life to this carrier.

  33. Alec

    Awesome customer service I had to switch the address because of a move and it wasn’t a problem. It’s high quality, comfortable, modular. For the price you can’t beat it. Better than anything I ever wore in the army.

  36. Robert H.

    Awesome plate carrier! Fits great, and very comfortable

  37. Preston C.

    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.*

    Now… Just waiting on my Maximus Placard to complete the set!

    *I found out Doc wasn’t really a doctor. He just wanted to look…

    Could use a better design to keep plates in. Other than that it’s a solid carrier.

  40. Isaac S.

    I needed a lightweight, modular carrier for work, the RAC is exactly what I was hoping for. I have worn a few different carriers while I was in the Marines. I like those. But this carrier is lighter and super customizable. I’m excited to purchase future additions for it.

  41. Seth S.

    Very comfortable and I didn’t have to buy aftermarket shoulder pads so that’s a plus. Great kit everything I was hoping for and more. Check out the YouTube reviews if you want to know more and see it in action.

  42. Jeremy

    Very adjustable and extremely comfortable. Only way it could be more comfy is if I got the multi curve plates 🤷‍♂️👍

  43. Dalton A.

    Build good, but a bit too much velcro

  44. John Raterink

    No complaints.
    A lot of thought was in this design, and I appreciate that.

  45. Josh

    Absolutely love this carrier! I’ve used quite a few over my years in the army and buying gear for civilian use and this is hands down my favorite. As comfortable as a carrier can be, great build quality and very durable. Paired with the Maximus this is a dream setup!

    Solid gear.

  50. Tyler Gladkowski

    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.

  51. Andrew

    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.

    Fantastic plate carrier! High quality materials and construction. Would absolutely recommend to anyone. I would suggest to anyone planning on doing a lot of physical activity or running in the carrier however to purchase the additional cummerbund…definitely worth the extra money.

    I cant rightfully judge my experience specifically with this brand of gear for this is the first vest I have purchased and began to build in my life. However I do appreciate the dominance of versatility over all other brands. I will most definitely be purchasing more from HRT

  77. Alex L.

    Loved it! It’s very versatile and adjustable!

  78. Dean

    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.

    Great quality. Solid carrier

  81. David W.

    More comfortable than I expected, doesn’t interfere with shouldering a weapon, shoulder straps stay out of the way without digging into my neck.

    Waiting on a backordered hydration zip pack for the rear to complete the kit.

  82. Blake F.

    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.

    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.

    Great product. Quality product at a outstanding price. OH

    This carrier is very comfortable and easy to adjust to your body. It sits snug and still allows air flow to come between you and the carrier. I do wish they sold a bladder for there hydration back pack, but thats not to big of a deal that they don’t. It is made with great craftsmanship and finished very well.

    Pleasantly surprised by the comfort and quality of the carrier. Worked will my hesco and hardwire plates.
