Yesterday, social media was on fire with news of T.Rex Arms releasing their own plate carrier system. The announcement of the new plate carrier was released on the T.Rex Arms official Instagram page and Lucas’s personal Instagram page. The new plate carrier is called T.Rex Arms Armor Carrier 1 or AC1 for short.

The team at T.Rex designed the AC1 for the evolving nature of of home defense and to be prepared in the trouble times we face. When safety and security are paramount for those who are trying to be prepared for anything. They designed this carrier with that philosophy in mind and built a plate carrier to meet their high standards as a company.

The new AC1 from T.Rex Arms comes full assembled and ready to go right out of the box as a slick plate carrier. The package comes complete with: front and back plate bags, padded shoulder straps, two buckles, and elastic cummerbund with small medium or large pockets. The AC1 is also scalable allowing for you to add addition equipment. You can add a shingle, chassis or mag carrier that can be attach by Velcro or buckle system in the front. Allowing you optimal flexibility. T.Rex says this front will be compatible with most popular mag pouches on the market. The Spiritus System and Ferro Concepts mag pouches would set up very nicely on this setup.

The new AC1 comes in at an MSRP of $190. Which makes it comparable to the Ferro Concepts Slickster in price point. Which is also a scalable plate carrier system.

Below is the product description from T.Rex Arms on the new AC1.
