In 36 BC, the historian Plutarch gave the first description of the Roman Army’s formidable Testudo formation. It consisted of a group of soldiers tightly packed, with shields held in front and above, so that nothing could penetrate the advancing unit. The Testudo Carrier applies that approach to personal protection: Having formidable protection by maximizing coverage. Now you can customize that approach to make for your ideal setup.Included are some of our most popular and reliable products:The Testudo Gen 2.0 Plate Carrier is an armor carrier that maximizes coverage and comfort.For coverage, this Testudo 2.0 Plate Carrier is able to hold the biggest size the industry offers (11”x14”) as well as the more common 10”x12”. For comfort, generous padding prevents chafing and a fully adjustable cummerbund and shoulder straps let you choose the ideal fit. This adjustability makes the Testudo more than a “one-size-fits-all” solution since the size itself can be changed to best suit you.The Testudo also has plenty of PALS webbing for attaching your MOLLE-compatible pouches, holsters, and accessories. On the PALS is an application of Velcro, offering superior versatility for placement of medical kits, or other patches or gear.The A2 body armor with a shooters cut provides an ergonomic multi-curve shape, lighter weight, and special-threat resistance. That alongside the existing benefits of FragLock™ and edge-to-edge multi-hit protection. As a Level III+ rated plate, it goes beyond the Level III rated standard protective capabilities, being able to stop rounds such as the M855 Green Tip. The included Trauma Pads work in tandem with the plates to prevent blunt force trauma from the bullet’s impact when the plate stops penetration.The accompanying Rifle Magazine Double Pouch can be worn either on the carrier or on a battle belt; it is capable of holding all common rifle magazines such as 5.56x45 (.223), 7.62x39 AK, or 7.62x51 NATO (.308 Winchester). Also, since it is a double pouch, it is capable of holding two magazines in separate compartments; providing twice as much ammo per pouch at hand.Finally, the included Economy Sling is a two-point longarm sling with an adjustable 1.5” webbing for the body, 1” webbing at the connection ends, and paracord loops for attachment. A simple and compact solution to having your long gun with you at all times.Included in Loadout1 x Testudo Gen 2 Plate Carrier2 x A2 Plates - 10" x 12" Base Coat2 x Blunt Force Trauma Pads - 10" x 12"1 x Economy Sling1 x Multi-Caliber Rifle Magazine Double Pouch - (Please note: the Olive Drab color for this pouch is unavailable, if you choose Olive Drab for this loadout you will receive a Multicam Double Rifle Magazine Pouch)Upgrades AvailableDiscounted Protector Helmet at only $299Enhanced loadout: two 6x8 side plates, two 6x8 trauma pads, one battle belt, and one triple pistol magazine pouch
