Warrior Assault Systems MK1 Recon Plate Carrier


Warrior Assault Systems MK1 Recon Plate Carrier


The Warrior Assault Systems Recon Plate Carrier is the latest evolution of plate carriers from Warrior Assault Systems. Designed to be a lightweight and versatile low profile armor carrier, offering enhanced mobility without compromising protection.

The RPC has been developed to hold medium and large SAPI, ESAPI, and Shooters/Swimmer’s cut stand alone plates along with the most common 10″x12″ I.C.W. plates available.


Plate pockets have been backed with 3D mesh for added ballistic performance, comfort and dispersal of body heat.

The Recon Plate Carrier comes standard with ladder style cummerbunds that attach to the RPCs front via 2 removable ITW SR Clips. This allows rapid access when getting in and out of the RPC (ITW SR Clips have a combined breaking strength of 600lbs per side).

The RPCs shoulders can be worn in 3 different configurations as a slick low profile with the addition of Velcro padded shoulders and wrap around sleeve for hydration and comms channeling.

The RPC comes as standard with a removable MOLLE front flap held in place by 2 vertical SQM clips and strong Velcro which allows the panel to be removed and replaced with a wide variety of preconfigured weapon-specific pouch panels and Warrior’s new Pathfinder Chest Rig. The RPC integrates with Warrior’s new Back Panel.

Recon MK1

Love the carrier fit better than anticipated. Definitely fell in love with Warrior Assault System brand. EOD Gear was good. Pandemic slowed everything down but kept me in the loop and once they found one, had it delivered in 2 days.

Fast shipping!

First and foremost, very fast shipping especially during this whole covid 19 pandemic. Ordered Mar 16th, delivered Mar 19th with free shipping. As for the product itself it seems very well built, stitching is good, inside mesh area is actually double layered and pushes the carrier off of you to allow for good breathability. Cummerbund has reinforced plastic sewn into it for rigidity. Did not realize the extra swift clip placard shown in picture comes with a shoulder strap harness system. Only complaint is lack of velcro front and back for moral/flag and name tape.
