The PF-R™ out-performs all other carriers in its class in performance, comfort, and modularity. Other than the S&S PFM™, it is the only armor carrier system with the patented (US 10605574) adjustable Auto-Fit Cummerbund™ and thoracic load-bearing technology. By using a single layer of semi-rigid composite material with laser-cut MOLLE/PALS slots, we were able to keep the overall weight to just over 1 lb. When properly fitted, the PF-R’s Auto-Fit Cummerbund™ helps to distribute the weight of the operator’s load out across their entire torso while still allowing for expansion of the chest and lungs. Together the Auto-Fit Cummerbund™ and lightweight, hydrophobic plate wrap system help the user to feel comfortable, while offering impressive strength and durability even under heavy load.
