hill_69

The Responder is a lightweight plate carrier built to accept SAPI/ESAPI or 10″x12″ Shooter cut plates. Designed for those first at the scene, the Responder can be rapidly donned or doffed in active shooter situations with the use of quick release buckles. This gives a one-size-fits-all option to individuals at the scene.

This is a product that Propper has in stock and ready to ship. Level IV plates are included, front and back. Includes two ID Placards with your choice of lettering. MRSP is $759.99 for black, coyote, and olive; $839.99 for MultiCam.

    Flawless timing. 10/10 subtle marketing.

    I’m not sure I understand the product. Is the officer going to carry this around like a suitcase? If so, why wouldn’t he just wear it? If it’s going to stay in his trunk, why wouldn’t he just have a normal plate carrier that doesn’t transform into a suitcase?

    I’m not trying to be a jerk. Maybe there’s something I’m missing.

      I’m guessing the bigger market will be emt’s and paramedics like me. I’ve been considering getting a plate carrier or body armor I can throw on over my uniform when I get a page for a shooting. Personally I kinda want side plates, side note does anyone have any opinion on side plates yes or no?

        Dallas notwithstanding, most shootings in the US are going to involve pistols. I think a plate carrier is an excellent idea for an officer to up-armor when responding to shooting calls, but IMO just running a plate carrier without soft armor underneath is selling yourself short. You take what you’ve got on hand, of course, but if you have time and means, then I think a vest with both IIIA soft armor and rifle-rated plates would offer you the most well-rounded protection. But, its all about balance. What is to heavy to function? Is it too bulky to carry on an ambulance? What is to light to be of adequate protection? What are known, historic, or expected threats? Its another topic with strong opinions on both sides, but I generally fall on the side of more protection, but I haven’t been running any side plates. I simply don’t have any, not out of disdain.
