    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.

    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.

    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.

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

    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.

  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…

  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.

    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!

  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.

  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.

    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.

  83. Anonymous

    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.

    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.

    Light weight carrier with great shoulder strap design that does not impede how you shoulder your rifle. The air channel this PC creates in the middle is great for ventilation.

  94. Rick James

    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!

  95. Chris

    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.

    Out of all the plate carriers I have worn the HRT RAC carrier is thee most comfortable one. Upon receiving this I decided to go for a simple jog and had no issues with it at all.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    Fantastic quality! Fits great. Very comfortable. Awesome ability to customize to your needs and wants.

    Really great product. Comfortable and breathable. Only thing is I wish the plate compartment had a Velcro flap to fully secure the compartment.

    Great plate carrier! Extremely versatile, well made and easily adjustable. Can’t say enough about the customer service as well. Very helpful.

    I wasn’t sure if I wanted the Multicam or Ranger Green, so I ordered the Multicam and figured I’d exchange it if I wasn’t happy.

  162. Matthew Webley

    The Black Mulitcam is awesome and it’s comfortable and it fits really good. Love this set up. Would highly recommend this

    I’ve only taken it through one training course so far & it’s held up with no issues yet. It stays in it’s place with minimal shift & the Panton set up it great. I own a few other plate carriers & so far this one is the go to.

    Extremely comfortable and well made. The quality stitching and materials feel like this PC will last forever. I love the quick release buckle on the shoulder strap. Shouldering a rifle is easy, the PC doesn’t hinder at all. Highly recommended.

    Amazing quality for the price, and the modularity is hard to beat! This is a well-kept secret/gem amongst the big players such as Crye & Spiritus!

    Shipping was extremely quick I received my items in days. Love the modularity, this is a great plate carrier for multiple different scenarios. I enjoy that its minimalist and not to bulky. High quality product would recommend to others.

    Absolutely amazing plate carrier! Seriously wore it for about a 7 hour training sessions with Hesco L210’s and it was the most comfortable carrier I’ve worn and carried the weight very well!

  189. Dylan S.

    The most versatile Plate Carrier I’ve used to date. First time using a modular system and I am not disapointed.

  190. TIM Lovato

    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!!!!

    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.

    Well worth the money. Very high quality and comfortable for a bigger guy like myself. I’m 265 5’10”

  193. Tristin Fulgham

    It took a good bit of adjusting to make the large fit me because I’m a smaller guy, but once I got it there, it fit great and is pretty comfortable for what it’s meant for.

    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!

  199. Juan Martinez

    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.

  200. Seongjun Choi

    I appreciate your service

  201. John

    Very comfortable and affordable. Don’t mind getting another set. Great job HRT!

  202. Shawn D.

    This has replaced my old LBT 6094. That was a solid carrier but man is this RAC comfortable as well as modular.

  203. James B.

    This is as comfortable as a plate carriers can get and I have been wearing plate carriers since 2002 in the Army. Just can’t beat this for the cost. Great product and great company…

  204. Dalen H.

    Great plate carrier. It seems oversized, which is a good thing in my opinion. There is built in cable management, padding, and venting. It is a thick plate carrier meant for a decent load carry. All around a great rig for the price.

  205. Dustin P.

    Love the plate carrier. The ranger green is spot on.

    Absolutely love this carrier. Tough, comfortable, the only thing that would make this a 5/5 for me instead of 4.5 is if the bottom of the carrier was closed to prevent wear and tear on my plates.

    Very comfortable carrier. Would like to see plate retaining straps cover the entire bottom of the plate carrier. Shoulder straps very long, but all in all have recommended to others.

    Best plate carrier I’ve owned!! Very vertical!

  214. Todd E.

    The plate carrier was amazing the quality to detail the fit was extraordinary and I am not over exaggerating unfortunately it just didn’t fit my Plates but I definitely would order it again this is one of the best plate carriers I’ve worn so I haven’t worn a lot of them the name itself HRT That’s a great name in the industry

  215. Matthew Gallaway

    Very good quality, just a bit pricey.

    Could not recommend this carrier any more. If you’re new to PC, use them for work, or whatever the case may be, I would 110% go with this carrier and HRT. You cannot go wrong.

    Glad to finally get a product that is American made and made of good quality materials. Wish it came standard with the double cummerbund for the price but worth buying both.

    Very nice quality carrier. Will definitely be buying the placard and cummerbund from them for the RAC. As I expect them to be the same awesome quality as the carrier. Definitely recommended.

  223. Sean O.

    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.

  229. Dallon

    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.

  230. Michael H.

    Awesome Product. Plates fit great.

    Great vest. I honestly think the clips that go on the vest for the pouches should be included. Otherwise it’s great material and durability

    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.

    Thanks HRT Tactical.
