Blue Force Gear PLATEminus

Post  Gear Whores Anonymous on Sat Nov 23, 2013 10:49 pm

The battle for the thinnest and lightest plate carrier is currently in full steam. Blue Force Gear has drawn first blood with their PLATEminus. This thing is extremely low profile and as minimalist as can be.

Notable features:
-MOLLEminus Technology
-Thin profile
-Lightweight
-Available in Black, Wolf Grey, Multicam and Coyote Brown
-$175

The BFG PLATEminus. There's more than meets the eye...


BFG's "minus" concept is to basically remove unnecessary MOLLE. Getting rid of extra MOLLE bars eliminates extra webbing, stitching and more importantly WEIGHT. The materials on the plate carrier are incredibly strong and very easy to work with


Sides use a very simple ITW buckle which is IR signature compliant


The PLATEminus does not come with shoulder straps but are compatible with the LMAC shoulder pads set. Easily adjusts and the materials they use make it extremely low profile


Precision laser cutting is a thing to marvel at...


Back of the platebag. BFG is using some premium and VERY nice materials. Definitely not the typical Cordura, etc..


Laser cut precision, BFG knows their shit

Because the PLATEminus is so thin and light there isn't much rigidity. Makes sitting up the carrier a bit tricky


The MINUS concept may be too radical for some and I would definitely say it's not for everyone. There isn't much real estate for MOLLE but then again this isn't a full plate carrier with cummerbund, hell there are plenty of those already on the market. This is for the person who wants thin and light. Great for extreme mobility, light patrol, training, range time, etc.

I give kudos to BFG for daring to try something new. They've won me over and I'll admit that I'm a little eager to check out what else they have in the works.

Pros:
-LIGHT
-THIN
-Laser cut
-Premium materials
-Made in USA
-$175

Cons:
-MOLLE real estate
