St. Louis, MO (January 19, 2024)- SKD Armor, LLC., introduces the patented Loop Covered Plate (LCP).

Created for ultra low vis applications, the first of these special threat plates are being made in partnership with Integris Composites, Inc. (formerly Tencate Advanced Armor USA, Inc.).  Additional models from Hesco and other manufacturers are forthcoming.

The SKD Armor LCP will allow for minimal profile/weight systems consisting of plates and a strap kit, and be easily scalable to user needs with LCP side plates, placards, pouches and airflow pontoons.  The LCP patent covers the use of hook and loop on a plate and corresponding harness systems.

Licensing is being offered to nylon companies interested in developing their own harness kits.  SKD Armor is currently working with AXL, Blue Force Gear, Esstac and Ferro Concepts in developing harness kits, with ongoing discussions taking place with other notable manufacturers.

The SKD Armor LCP and partner harness kits will be available for purchase by Q3, 2024.  Please direct all inquiries to
