The Blue Force Gear Plate Minus carrier a very lightweight, and compact plate carrier. Designed to be as low profile as possible the Plate Minus carrier succeeds in its goal. This tiny plate carrier is made from Blue Force Gear’s ULTRAcomp material. ULTRAcomp is super thin and super lightweight, but it is also a 4 times abrasion resistant as 1000D Cordura. This strong, but light material makes the Plate Minus carrier surprisingly tough. I was not disappointed while reviewing the Plate Minus.
Plate Minus and Molle Minus
I’ve been running one for about a month now, trying it with various weapons and firearm set ups. It’s been best paired with my Scorpion and Blue Force Gear MP7 magazine pouches. This mags and the mag pouches are thin and light and stay out-of-the-way. I have four magazines mounted and still have room to point a dual pistol magazine pouch. SMG pouches and pistol caliber carbines are perfect for this lightweight, and compact plate carrier. During my Plate Minus review I rocked a Scorpion.
The Molle Minus is not straps sewed to a carrier. Instead it’s one piece of material with slots cut out of it. It’s attached to the vest as a solid panel. This design makes attaching and detaching pouches really easy and convenient. This type of MOLLE functions best with Blue Force Gear’s pouches due to their use of ULTAcomp. It keeps thing thin and light.
