Velocity Systems – SCARAB Light Plate Carrier


The SCARAB Light is a newly released plate carrier from Velocity Systems. According to Velocity Systems, the SCARAB Light was designed to meet unique user needs and solve industry-wide armor carrier issues. It features a color matching Velcro loop Admin Panel on the upper chest, a front kangaroo pouch, and integrated SwiftClip buckles for rapid don/doff of auxiliary chest worn equipment.

SCARAB Shoulder

The shoulder straps are designed to alleviate common fit issues seen with traditional sewn fixed angle shoulder straps. They are made from ULTRAcomp, with an articulate D-ring which allows them to swivel to sit correctly and comfortably on any user. I’ve used a developmental version of the vest and I can attest to the design. The straps are adjustable for length and have a padded sleeve, which can also be used to route cables.


The SCARAB Light is initially configured for standard front flap opening. It can also be set up by the user for dual or single quarter flap opening. The flaps can be easily and quickly reconfigured if one style of opening works better for a particular mission.


The upper back features color matching Velcro loop for identification. The rear is also equipped to accept Zip-On Back Panels of various configurations.

Currently available in Coyote Brown and Multicam; Black and Ranger Green will soon follow. Made in the USA.

    A good fix to that ridiculous jump-able cummerbund.
    It looks to have features in some popular carriers out there, but I wish it had the interior pocket of the APC on the chest- that thing is great.
