The new Mission Spec Essentials Only Carrier (EOC) is pretty well stocked with features for a minimalist plate carrier. It is designed to be trim enough to conceal under a jacket but also offer some modularity with its full PALS coverage front and back. The plate pockets are constructed from 1000D Cordura nylon construction with spacer mesh backing and are designed around a medium SAPI cut plate.
The cummerbund design is very clever. It features 2 simple webbing straps with side released buckles on each side. The straps are not only adjustable for length but their ride height can also be adjusted. It not unusual for a rear plate pocket to sag too low on the wearers back when the front plate is adjusted to ride high on other plate carriers. The EOC’s adjustable cummerbund design looks like it could compensate for the sagging rear plate issue.
The EOC is currently available in Black and Multicam with other colors coming soon. Check out the EOC at Mission Spec.
