• The K5 Plate Carrier is the most comfortable Plate Carrier on the market. Lightweight, durable and combat-proven by SOF around the world, the K5 doesn't skimp on shoulder or under-plate padding like many plate carriers so it rema...ins comfortable during prolonged use. We know missions or training exercises are rarely "fast and dirty" and so comfort during entire days and nights in your plate carrier is critical.
• The K5 design is unique in that the shoulder straps create a propitiatory "V" shape to center mass which spreads weight over maximum surface area and relieves pressure points.

The rear of the K5 plate bags have a triple layer of low profile fusion foam to remain comfortable even when using the K5 with hard steel or ceramic armor plates. Steel or ceramic plates often have hard corners and edges that can dig in to your torso when using regular plate carriers but the K5 has inherent padding to prevent this from happening.

When it comes to the cummerbund, we've thought of everything. The K5 employs our proprietary Fast-Adjust™ Cummerbund that can be adjusted and fine-tuned in real time, by the wearer.
Getting the perfect fit can depend on your specific mission loadout, what you're wearing underneath (which can change mid-mission), or even on how much you've eaten for lunch. We know that the ability to adjust it yourself, on the fly, is critical in order to avoid unnecessary fatigue and compromised combat awareness.

The K5 has a one-size-fits-all cummerbund and multi-size plate bag absolving the need to make complicated and risky sizing choices when buying. You know it will always fit you or members of your team regardless of your loadout or mission set. This is also important for procurement professionals who can be sure it will fit all their guys (or girls) well.

The K5's fast-adjust™cummerbund also has a built-in stretch element which allows the vest to be pulled in nice and tight so it doesn't bounce when you run, but that gives you that inch or so of stretch needed when dropping to a knee so the carrier doesn't squash your torso.

• The K5 has a number of subtle yet critical features that make it better than other carriers including the ability to attach the AMAP II or AMAP 30 Assault packs directly to it in seconds. No threading MOLLE, no hassle.

Best Carrier Made

So comfortable and the quality is second to none! I set it up with my mag pouches and still had room for my ouch pouch. I love this carrier!!

You won’t be disappointed with this carrier

The K5 is extremely comfortable, versatile and well-made. I got this to replace my (extremely uncomfortable, for me) Crye JPC, as I’d read that the Agilite carriers are very comfortable to wear. And I can attest to that, it’s got padding and adjustability where it's needed, without making it unnecessarily bulky.

I was originally a little bit concerned that they’d moved to a one-size-fits-all design (which usually means “fits no size well”) — but the strap system they have makes it super easy to secure the plates in place so they can’t slop around inside the pockets.


The K5 and K19 are about as good as it gets and basically impossible to beat for the price as long as berry compliance isn’t a requirement for you! I love mine and use it very often for training and duty.

Excellent carrier, but..

I run 8”-10” level IV ceramic plates. The plate fits great in the front but the it’s extremely difficult to get the level IV in the rear pouch. I know you want it to be snug so it doesn’t bounce around when generally on the move or when running during a stress course but the rear pouch is so snug/tight it’s almost as if I need to go to a thinner plate; possibly a lever III or a IIIA.. just saying.


Just awesome. The best plate carrier I ever had. Worth every euro I spend to get it.
