Blue Force Gear PLATE6® MOLLEminus Plate Carrier

The Blue Force Gear MOLLEminus is a revolutionary load carriage platform that is fully MOLLE compatible while being the lightest on the market. The same way we made the lightest MOLLE pouch attachment – Helium Whisper™ – system with one piece Helium Whisper backers, MOLLEminus™ is a MOLLE compatible platform constructed out of one piece of ULTRAcomp™ The MOLLE field has been changed to all slots In which gives greater flexibility in mounting pouches and maximum signature reduction without having another layer of material underneath.

The PLATEminus™ V6 is built with the same fully MOLLE-compatible MOLLEminus platform as the original PLATEminus™. This provides fully modular load carriage capability but significantly reduces weight and bulk over traditional armor carriers. PLATEminus™ V6 is designed to hold ESAPI/SPEAR armored plates and has fully enclosed plate pockets that protect the plates. “Plate6” provides users with built-in 6” x 6” side plate pockets and cummerbund side closures. It also has a flat admin pocket behind the front loop field.

The Side Plate Pockets – available in a low profile version without side plate pockets and adjustable side straps for low threat environment or side plate pockets that fit 6” x 6” hard armor side plates secured with a Ten-Speed® cummerbund for a more secure fit and to hold extra mags or equipment.

The Ball Loaded Index Point, or BLIP™ for short, is a feature found on all our lidded pouches. The BLIP was born in the freezing rain on a Blackwater range. It was there we realized that when you can’t feel your fingers, it’s very difficult to get a grasp on a flat piece of webbing and distinguish a pull tab. The ball doesn’t rely on friction; the bones in your fingers positively engage it. BLIP’s form is both easy to pull and impossible to miss.

The back of the PLATEminus 6 Armor Carrier has eyelets designed for running radio antenna to cables through and connecting communication devices without extra gear needed, as seen in the gallery.

The carrier is fully adjustable for the user’s size with an adjustable hook and hoop hoop-secured shoulder straps and adjustable side straps. A large pattern-matched loop field on the front can be left empty or used to display name, department, or flag patches.

The PLATEminus carriers ESAPI or SPEAR armor plates with or without soft armor backers in an enclosed tweave plate pocket. Other nonstandard-sized steel or composite armor may fit depending on the size. Remember to size the carrier in the options to the plate size, NOT the user’s physical size.
