The plate carrier world isn’t exactly small anymore. With the rise of the plate carrier over the standard full-sized armor carrier the market responded with a wide variety of options. Seeing plate carrier evolve from what I used in Afghanistan in 2009 to what they’ve become in 2017 has been fascinating. It’s shown me just how far we’ve come in the tactical realm. That being said, it can be tough to separate out the crap from the quality with so many options. That’s what we plan to do today, we are going to see what category the Ambitec USAF Plate Carrier falls into.
