Blue Force Gear Unveils PLATEminus at Warrior West

Weighing in at just 335 grams, the new PLATEminus™ is the latest component in Blue Force Gear’s growing MOLLEminus line. It’s designed to fit any SAPI/ESAPI style armor plates, with or without plate backers, and is manufactured from BFG’s proprietary ULTRAcomp laminate which incorporates a combination of slots and squares to accommodate as Helium Whisper as well as other PALS-compatible pouches.

Other than the low weight, the key design feature for PLATEminus is that it incorporates a color matched separate plate pocket that’s made from a combination of Tweave and Cordura that accommodates, protects, and camouflages plates and backers. The MOLLEminus construction strategy is already very lightweight but BFG went a step further in their weight reduction strategy by relying on simple 1″ side load stabilization straps. Another interesting feature is that the LMAC shoulder straps can be adapted to the PLATEminus™.

“We designed PLATEminus with simplicity in mind,” said John Felushko, Blue Force Gear’s Product Line Manager. “PLATEminus is simple to put on with single pull forward side straps, simple to customize due to full MOLLE compatibility and simple to size – just buy your SAPI/ESAPI plate size.”

The PLATEminus™ is currently available in MultiCam at OP Tactical and will soon also be offered in Coyote Brown and Urban Wolf.

    Any word on if there will be side mag carriers like the LMAC?
