[WTS] Home-sewn Plate Carrier - Multicam (pic heavy!)

Recommended Posts

Attention: I am from Austria (Europe). The below mentioned price includes shipping to the US, which usually takes 10-15 days. You can also pay in USD via Paypal.


Hey guys. I am selling my first home sewn plate carrier. It is just a prototype and therefore has some shortcomings. It is however an overall great high quality "made in Austria" plate carrier.


Price: 150$


materials used:

- Genuine 500 Denier Cordura from Brookwoods, IRR & DWR

- Original Multicam Webbing, imported from the US

- Alterfil thread - made in Germany thread which melts together after being ironed, which makes it virtually impossible to open

It's features:


- Takes Small SAPI plates, should also take 10"x12" plates

As you can see with the S SAPI there is still some room. I do not have any 10"x12" plates to try with, so I can't guarantee they fit.


- zigzag stiches on spots with a lot of tear

- X seams on velcro

- triple stiched + zigzag'd PALS webbing

- adjustable shoulder straps and adjustable elastic cummerbund

- slanted velcro with pull tabs for easy opening

- Front: detachable padding, back: sewn in (wanted to try both methods :P)

- detachable shoulder pads

- removable foam in cummerbund

- big solid Multicam velcro space for Patches, V-Lite, PTT, etc.

- small velcro space on the back

Now, here are the shortcomings:


- right shoulder strap folded a bit

- some unpleasant stiching

- inverted velcro on one shoulder pad... *facepalm*




Now this is how it looks on me (6', 145lbs)

So as you can see it's more for the skinnier/smaller airsofters, the adjustment possibilities are however similar to the LBT 6094a.
