The Draken Lightweight Plate Carrier (DLPC) is a minimalist, modular plate carrier constructed from the highest quality 1000 denier Cordura. Many carriers are made with 500 deniers (lighter) Cordura, which in our opinion does not provide sufficient durability for long-lasting use. Both front and rear plate bags split in half and secure around your plate, allowing the front base to be swapped out for any of Gadsden Dynamics front base layouts.
We offer the DLPC to fit the following size plates in SAPI and SHOOTER style cuts (the ALPC will not properly fit Swimmer style plates):
- 9.5" x 12.5" x 1.25"
- 10" x 12" x 1" (for 10x12 plates, thickness is very important, any plate thicker than 1" will not fit)
Note: The DLPC is designed to fit plates following the SAPI sizing convention. Plates that do not follow this convention may not fit properly. Please consult the above dimensions carefully before ordering to ensure your plates will fit our carrier.
The bases of the DLPC are universally sized, so whether you purchased a medium or large, the bases will be the same. The tops are what determine sizing.
The standard front top has a 4"x6" loop velcro panel with vertical PALS webbing on either side which fit QASM buckles (included) for attaching swift clip compatible chest rigs. The enhanced version has 4 columns and 4 rows of loop velcro PALS webbing instead of the 4"x6" loop panel.
The ALPC comes with shoulder pads that provide extra comfort.
