Modular Operator Plate Carrier vest (MOPC)
The modular plate carrier with cummerbund that increases the surface on which we can mount the pouches. The modularity is ensured by PALS bands ( 1 inch wide ) that meet the MOLLE system standards. Additionally, the PALS bands located on the front and rear panels were covered with Velcro in order to be able to carry ID tags on them or something like that.
Just like the name of the vest informs us the vest if adapted to carry ballistic plates meeting the Small Arms Protective Insert standards. We can equip it with four ceramic plates – the front and the back plates ( 10 x 12 inches ) and two side SAPI plates ( 6 x 8 inches ) which are placed in the cummerbund. The cummerbund itself is detachable so we can use the vest in the form of only the two upper panels ( in that case, the nylon buckle ended tapes are used in order to adjust the vest ).
There is a rather big compartment located in the front of the vest which will surely hold, for example a map or notebook. The rear panel has got a sewn on emergency carrying handle while the comfort level is increased by the comfortable shoulder pads. The vest is adjustable both vertically and horizontally.
