AR500 Armor Veritas™ Plate Carrier


*Manufacturer's Expected Lead Time: 3 - 5 Weeks!

Every just cause fight for truth; a just cause opposes the evil that falsehood creates. But this fight calls for protection: Arm yourself with the Veritas carrier, named after the Latin word for truth, designed to be fully customizable and ready for optimization to any situation. Adopt a minimalist setup or build up a complete loadout; this rugged carrier can do it all.

If you’re looking for a plate carrier with a minimalist profile that doesn’t sacrifice real estate, the AR500 Armor Veritas® is for you.

Veritas is Latin for Truth, and God is the ultimate Truth and armor in the fight against evil. The modular Veritas armor system pays homage to His protection as physical armor against those who would do you harm.

The Veritas (Latin for “Truth”) is the smaller and more modular design of its big brother, the Testudo. The Veritas is comfortable, well-ventilated, and lightweight plate carrier for 10”x12” hard armor plates*. Plenty of PAL'S webbing for attaching your MOLLE-compatible pouches, holsters, and accessories.

Because nearly every component of the Veritas carrier is removable, making your loadout nimble and low-profile is just a few adjustments away. Additionally, turning a nimble loadout into a decked-out one is equally simple: This product is the main component of a modular armor system consisting of a Veritas skeletonized cummerbund, multi-caliber Kangaroo triple mag pouch, padded side-plate pouches, and Adaptive Plate Insert. The Veritas can also be equipped with our Abdominal (ABS) pouch which utilizes our steel or soft armor adding another 9.5x6 area of coverage when used in conjunction.

Sometimes, you’ll be expecting to want a full loadout and be glad to wear all these features. But likely not all the time; for other situations, the coverage of just a carrier with front and back plates will be all you need.

500D Cordura® Nylon, bar-tacked at all stress points for high durability, makes up the majority of the carrier’s material. It also features a padded 3D mesh for comfort, ventilation, and customizability, including the ability to accommodate a cummerbund, side-plate pockets, and removable shoulder straps. On the carrier, there are also dual admin pockets with Hypalon® easy-to-grip pull-tabs and an upper admin pouch with elastic keepers. Front & rear Velcro® ID Panels allow you to further personalize your carrier with patches or other accessories.

Extremely adjustable, the Veritas can be made to fit from a Medium to an XXL. It is compatible with any trapezoid 10”x12” plates (square 10”x12” plates are slightly too large for the design) as well as any smaller sizes when used with an Adaptive Plate insert.

*Note: The Veritas is designed only for 10”x12” trapezoidal plates and will not work with square plates.
