When every second counts, you need to be confident in your gear. You don't have time to be dealing with equipment that isn't efficient or effective. And most importantly, you don't have time to waste. Your safety, comfort and protection is Priority #1. The Shadow Plate carrier was designed to take care of the three fundamental concerns when bullets are flying and your survival is on the line: SPEED, SAFETY and COMFORT.


The Shadow Plate Carrier incorporates the latest materials and technology to give you superior utility and comfort in any situation. Ultra Light Weight Polymer Cobra (TM) buckles on the shoulders and cummerbund allow for fast and easy donning and doffing. Stretch materials in the cummerbund allows for increased comfort, especially during high-intensity situations when heart rate and breathing is elevated. A modular system on the front of the plate carrier gives you the ability to interchange mission specific gear within seconds, not minutes like traditional plate carriers. The Shadow Plate Carrier also incorporates 221B Tactical's proprietary Maxx-Dri technology making it the most breathable plate carrier on the market today. This not only allows fresh air to flow through it while being worn, it also helps better distribute the weight of armor plates more evenly, potentially reducing neck, back and shoulder pain. The Maxx-Dri material also prevents sweat from soaking into your plate carrier, keeping your carrier cleaner, drier, safer and less stinky. The Maxx-Dri material is removable and machine washable for easy care and maintenance.

Spartan Omega Level III AR500 Steel Shooter’s Cut Plates 

They hold a 500 Brinell Hardness rating, a scale used to rate the hardness of steel and various other materials.Made of high carbon tempered steel, which is abrasion resistant and strong enough to prevent or minimize injury to the wearer. Steel is a great alternative to ceramic composite plates due to being less expensive. That being said, steel ballistic armor plates are slightly heavier (individually weighing eight to ten pounds each), they are thinner and the comfort level is about the same as wearing ceramic ballistic plates.

Spartan™ Omega™ ¼” AR500 bullet proof plates have been given a Level III protection rating by the NIJ. This means it will withstand all caliber handgun rounds up to .44 Magnum, and multiple rifle rounds up to 7.62 x 51 caliber NATO FMJ ammunition fired from a distance of 50 feet.

For dependable body armor with uncompromising quality at an affordable price, the Spartan™ Omega™ AR500 ballistic body armor plates are an excellent choice for protecting yourself in tactical situations.

Additionally, we’ve successfully defeated these threat profiles from Close Quarters Battle (CQB) distances…repeatedly!

Thickness:   0.25″ AR550 plus approximately 0.25″ coating makes this slim profile plate overall 0.5-0.6” in total thickness
