I think by now pretty much everyone is familiar with Blue Force Gear’s pattent pending MOLLEminus technology. Since its introduction in June of last year, Blue Force Gear has created an awesome line of ultra lightweight tactical gear. Now, after a few months of anticipation since SHOT Show 2013, they have introduced the Blue Force Gear PLATEminus. PLATEminus is high on quality but extremely low on weight and bulk making it perfect for concealing under a jacket or shirt. Weighing in at just under .75 lbs this has to be one of the lightest PC’s ever made.
As you can see in the picture below, the PLATEminus features the MOLLEminus technology which is extremely low profile for low visibility when worn under garments but allows you to still attach all of your preferred mag pouches, etc. for other applications. If you want to keep up with the awesome weight savings and quality you would add some BFG Ten-Speed M4 Mag Pouches but any Molle compatible accessories will work.
The following photos show just how low profile the PLATEminus really is. This is about as close as you can get to having the life saving benefits of Ballistic Plates without the bulk of a Plate Carrier.
I know most of us are getting used to seeing astronomical prices on anything related to the shooting industry anymore and you’re probably expecting to see some $350-500 price tag on something like this. **SURPRISE!!** The price tag on the PLATEminus is just $175 which is not bad at all for this Made In the USA PC. Right now BFG is introducing the PLATEminus in MultiCam but it will soon be available in other colors such as Coyote Brown and Gray. Purchase yours now at BlueForceGear.com or OPTactical.com
