The SCARAB™ DLX is Velocity Systems’ top of the line carrier for innovative technology and comfort. Weighing in at 1.6 lbs., (size medium) SCARAB™ DLX is 20% lighter than the already ultra-light SCARAB™ LT. The weight savings is achieved by utilizing the patented Trilogrid™ material. Trilogrid™ is made of a triangular shaped negative space making it stronger than standard laser cut slots and able to load and displace more weight. The SCARAB™ DLX design includes a lightweight internal frame structure that can be adjusted by the user for their preferred amount of stand-off from the body. The adjustable frame structure allows stand-off between the armor and body allowing for passive cooling and an over 50% reduction in back face deformation when tested side-by-side against a traditional plate carrier. The SCARAB™ DLX is SwiftClip® compatible and features Velocity Systems patented swivel shoulder straps (US Patent No. 9,894,962) that were designed to alleviate common fit issues with traditional fixed angle shoulder straps. The ergonomically designed and padded shoulder straps articulate on a D-ring allowing them to sit correctly and comfortably on any user, regardless of neck width or shoulder broadness. The length of the straps is adjustable and padded sleeves are included that can also be used for cable routing. The SCARAB™ DLX is sized to hold SAPI shaped plates of corresponding sizes to the carrier. All materials and workmanship are 100% made in the USA.

Velocity systems has built the best kit around. This plate carrier provides comfort, distribution of weight and proper fit. My other plate carriers have caused neck pain and not fit properly on my chest and shoulders. I am especially impressed with the attention to detail which makes for a noticeable reduction in weight. The triangular slots for pouch attachment are easier to slide kit straps into and out of making different set up for mission specific needs a breeze compared to the finger bleeding chore of that past technologies. The shoulder straps have a wide field of motion that makes overhead movement smooth. All around best plate carrier available. CV (Posted on 6/26/2018)
Quality equipment and customer service Review by Jade

Overall, this carrier is awesome. It is by far the most comfortable carrier I have ever worn. I was torn between this carrier and the Scarab LT. I have now worn them both. What sets the DLX apart is the internal frame structure. I was skeptical at first, but it does make a difference in comfort. The laser cuts are functional and look cool, but I can't say I prefer them over conventional webbing. I know they reduce the overall weight also. The material is very strong, you should not worry about it tearing. Like the LT, attached to the DLX are two female buckle ends used to attach the Swiftclip placards. This is where my only complaint comes in. The front panel of the DLX does not have any velcro loop for the placard to attach to like the LT does. Attached to the placards are two strips of loop that weave into the front of the carrier and secure to the hook on the placard, but I quickly learned this was not enough to truly secure the placard to the front panel. I contacted Velocity Systems and advised them of this issue. Their customer service was exceptional. They made a loop panel for me, free of charge, that attaches to the front panel via the Helium Whisper straps, which are great by the way. This allows the placards a secure hold, solving my only issue. The Helium Whisper straps are very thin, so it has not added to much unnecessary bulkiness to the front panel. So, If you want a light weight, comfortable, and sharp looking carrier I highly recommend this one. (Posted on 6/19/2018)
