SWANSBORO, N.C. – August 17, 2021 – High Speed Gear® released its brand-new low-profile Core™ Plate Carrier for use with small, medium, large, and x-large SAPI plates.

The Core™ is a ruggedly-designed, affordable plate carrier built for law enforcement or range/training use. With padded shoulder straps and spacer mesh interior, the Core™ is comfortable and low profile. Despite its streamlined design, the carrier is sturdy and adjustable, while remaining versatile, comfortable, and has plenty of laser-cut MOLLE for scalability. Whether you’re an officer building your quick reaction/active shooter kit, a student shopping for required equipment for training, or a responsibly-armed citizen gearing up for tactical range time, the Core™ is the perfect carrier for you.

“The idea of the Core™ Plate Carrier began when we had customers of varying professions and backgrounds asking for a low-profile plate carrier,” said Bill Babboni, HSGI® vice president of sales and operations. “We went through multiple design variations to create the Core™ as we took in input from both law enforcement and military members. We wanted to bring all the features possible at this price point, with more accessories coming soon.”
