Description

The Legacy MKI Aspis Plate Carrier from IA is designed to do just two things – carry plates and accept MOLLE pouches. That is all any plate carrier really has to do. Any extra material that would complicate or hinder these two functions has been stripped away, leaving just a compact, lightweight, and functional piece of gear.

Many lightweight carriers on the market now use 500D nylon to achieve their light weight. The Aspis is made from 1000D nylon yet it still manages to weigh less (less than 2.5 pounds) than some plate carriers made from 500D nylon. The side of the plate pockets that faces the user is lined with spacer mesh for comfort.

The external cummerbund is removable and has the ability to add soft armor. It consists of two sections tied together with shock cord which allows some flex for comfort. There is also an adjustable internal cummerbund that is not removable. The internal cummerbund utilizes side release buckles for quick donning and doffing.

Fitting it’s spartan design, the Aspis shoulder straps are not padded but there will be optional shoulder pads available. There will also be an optional 3 magazines insert for the kangaroo pouch.. Additional features include a drag handle on the rear plate pocket and hook material covered webbing on the top of the front and back plate pockets.

I am glad to see more options like this coming to market. As a non-military and non-law enforcement shooter, a simple carrier like the Aspis makes a lot of sense. It allows the user to carry everything they might need for a carbine course without the extra bulk or cost of more complicated plate carriers.

    Just received 5 of these plate carriers for me and my guys. Top notch kit! You can tell it’s made of quality materials, with quality stitching on carrier and molle. Super easy to adjust and fit to operator needs. Customer service was EXTREMELY accommodating and turnaround time was fast! Company is DEFINATELY under new management and the owner and staff could not be more accommodating and sympathetic to my needs and requirements! Don’t be scared off by prior interactions from “old” company, it’s a whole new experience!! HIGHLY recommend and will be purchasing more!!
