S&S Precision Eye Candy


We just got a photo of our new S&S Precision Plate Frame. It was created specifically for SSD. We’ll pick it up after the weekend and give an in-depth report.

    my only worry is that the tabs that hold the plates in would either bend out and either brake or dig into you when maneuvering

    Interesting. I look forward to seeing how you guys rate the comfort and protection for the plate.

      Protection of the plate? Plates are an entirely different issue than the Plate Frame.

        I think he meant the protection of the plate from everyday use, debris and bumps, since it’s not totally covered like a traditional PC.

        • SSD says:

          That is a great question. They’ve developed the Plate Sock to cover plates.

        • mike says:

          to tag along to what the admin is saying, the plate sock covers the plate and keeps it from getting random junk. A normal plate carrier is fabric, albeit tough fabric, and is doing nothing to “protect” the plate really. The plate sock is doing the same thing a standard carrier would do, cover the plate, as well as giving you camo options for your green/black/whatever colored plates.

          As far as the previous question about the tabs breaking, I don’t see much problem in ground usage. I’ve heard tale of a few of S&S’s Kydex items snapping in jump scenarios with the jolt of chute deployment, but even those were different because they were holding weight on one plane with one fold to the point where it was retained. These things wrap the plate and feel pretty damn sturdy. I’ve been tempted to drop plates in and run around, but no need to scoop Admin on what he’s clearly better at 😉

    What’s up with that dude on S&S’s page describing the plate frame? I can’t tell if he’s heading out to a night club, or about to rob a bank. At least they picture a Marine wearing one; that would be ridiculous.

    I like the look but how does it ride? I think it needs more slots on the side for attachment options. That’s just my preference, I like the rear plate up fairly high.
