Great CarrierReview by Mike
I'd give the LE 4.5 stars not because of anything it lacks, but because of a couple of quality of life tweaks I would look for. For background I'm a Border Patrol agent in Texas, and have been using the LE for a couple months now. In regards to heat this thing is leaps and bounds better than our old kevlar outer carriers. Having mesh on the cummerbund and on the inside of the carrier allows for so much more breathability. Even in the heat wave we've been experiencing it's not been unbearable to have this on. The shoulder straps are comfortable considering their small profile. I'm running a radio pouch and vertical trauma kit on either cummerbund and still have pretty good range of motion in my arms.

So I've got a few things that would make this absolutely perfect in my mind. 1. a factory option for something like the arbor arms buckle or first spear tubes. 2. I would like to see a hybrid of the LE/LT where a back panel has both the drag handle and zip-on panel ability. It would be nice to quickly zip on a hydration bladder and have the drag handle still available specifically for law enforcement. 3. the d-rings for the shoulder straps are noisy when the carrier has some weight on it. This is really specific in that when we are setup to apprehend subjects in the field, I'm looking to minimize any noise source. I've just been using some candle wax to silence them and that has worked well in case anyone is looking for a solution. 4. last on the list would be an OD green option. I know that's dated but it's a lot closer match to our uniform and possibly to some other agencies stateside.

The LE is great, the things I listed are really just preferences. If your on the fence about purchasing just get it, you won't regret it. (Posted on 6/6/2018)
Major upgrade from our previous armor.Review by Dustin
We got this setup and compared to our previous armor kit it beats it in every category. The vest keeps a much more slim appearance around the torso. The reduced weight was also a major bonus. The shoulder pads are wide enough to help distribute the downward pressure and thin enough to allow better freedom of movement with your arms. The addition of the armor on the shoulder strap is something really nice that I haven’t seen from a lot of other products. The modular design is great for quick changes to your setup depending on the mission (neck, bicep, and grion armor as well as equipment loadouts). Velocity Systems has been great, working tirelessly to make this the best kit for our needs in law enforcement. I would highly recommend to others in the SWAT community. (Posted on 5/21/2018)
Awesome CarrierReview by Wes
This is an awesome lightweight Plate Carrier. Pretty damn comfy, and cut perfectly to shoulder your weapon with no interference. Would highly recommend, if you're look for a lightweight option for training, or a "grab and go" situation. (Posted on 2/20/2018)
