AT Armor Contingency Plate Carrier

AT Armor’s new Contingency Plate Carrier is now available. The Contingency PC was designed to meet the needs of a patrol officer but it may also be a good fit for the prepared citizen.


In its standard configuration, this is a slick carrier with easy donning and doffing thanks to the simple webbing cummerbund with side release buckles. The plate pockets are mesh backed for breath-ability and lightly padded for comfort. The Contingency PC can be used with or without the included tailored shoulder pads.


Shown with placard (not included).

This carrier is very scalable. If you need to carry more gear you can add Velcro backed pouches or any SwiftClip compatible chest rig or placard. If you need side armor, you can add almost any aftermarket cummerbund that is up to 7″ tall.

On top of all that, it is made in the USA and very affordable. Check out the AT Armor Contingency Plate Carrier at AT Armor.

AT Armor STOP Plates

AT Armor released a graphic (below) that shows how their STOP plates work to defeat projectiles. Ballistic armor is amazing to me and it is staggering to think about how many lives it has saved. You would think it would be more complicated but the graphic shows just how simple the mechanics of stopping a bullet are (the materials necessary to make a plate as thin and light as the STOP plates are anything but simple).

From AT Armor:

AT Armor’s STOP and STOP-BZ plates are multi-component (aka hybrid) construction that defeat multiple hits of rated projectiles with a ceramic strike face and a subsequent layer of high-pressure compressed ballistic material. The advantage of our STOP series armor is it is very light (as light as 4lbs stand alone in a Med SAPI) and it is thin (.55 inches). Fully capable against common 5.56 threats and 7.62×39 mild steel and AP (STOP-BZ plate).
