I cannot hope to elaborate on the versatile and user friendly experience I've had thus far. As a civilian I never had much experience with plate carriers or armor in general. I was able to assemble and adjust the entire LV119 system in minutes. With a variety of upgrades and accessories available you can literally tailor this carrier for any need. I recommend spiritus to literally everyone like some kind of religious zealot street preacher.
*** The LV/119 Rear Plate Bag requires a Front Bag and Cummerbund for proper operation. ***
The LV/119 C O V E R T Rear Plate bag is a slick no frills solution for those who need to wear hard plates in the lowest profile possible. A 3" x 5" velcro patch is sewn at chest height for IR identifiers, patches or even our jumbo flags. The cummerbund attachment is a proprietary system that allows for the use of all of our cummerbunds as well as allowing for a wide range of adjustment. The cummerbund attaches inside the plate bag, this is advantageous for two reasons. 1. It doesn't have external mounting that can get snagged or rip off when exiting vehicles in haste. 2. It creates a smooth profile when wearing underneath clothing.
The LV/119 Plate Carrier System was designed to be a scalable and highly configurable plate carrier platform. The system will offer accessories ranging from Covert Low Visibility Operations, to High Threat Direct Action Raids. We designed the system to be issued in entirety to operators who can then select the desired configuration to meet their mission requirements. Accessories that will be released will include, O V E R T Plate bags, Back Panels, Placards, Side Plate Support, Molle Cummerbunds, Maritime Support, Tubes and much more. All parts and accessories will be interchangeable throughout the series.
The carrier was designed to fit United States Standard Issue SAPI cut plates, but it will fit other cuts as well as long as they fit within the specifications listed below. The bags were built to accommodate "thicker" plates, but they will not fit plates do not fall within the measurements listed.
Medium-10" x 12.5"
Large- 10.25" x 13.25"
Thickness- MAXIMUM of 1.20"

The Covert plate bag does its job. The material quality is great. The cummerbund system is great, the flexibility just makes sense. It can be a pain to mess with it, I used some electrical tape to keep the cording closed (Thinking ahead). I would like to see if I could run an Overt bag in place of this one.
I found this plate carrier to be better than I expected. I was looking for a small, sleek carrier to wear in low viz or when wearing my ghillie. This thing meets and exceeds what I wanted. The fit is perfect. Issued medium plates fit in with no problem. The cummerbund is adjustable and keeps the plate bags in position without feeling like I'm being suffocated. I honestly can't say enough good things about this whole set up. Absolutely superb.
I recently ordered a LV119 plate carrier in medium size, and when it arrived To me, I was like a kid on Xmas. The plate carrier itself is Perfect To me, good design, good concept, minimalist. The micro rig system fits perfectly on it. My only concern is about the size. I m using a standard medium plate, in use in my country armed forces. It s a standard SAPI size medium, as well as my soft Armor. I struggled To fit my front plate, but i won... after a long fight. But for the rear plate bag, i only managed To insert the soft Armor, because it doesnt fit both, my plate and my soft Armor. So for now, I use it for fitness and training purpose... Anyway, that PC could be a really good and convenient product... But maybe if you planned To purchase one, take it in large. Even if you carry medium plates.
