Just purchased and set up my LV-119 overt front plate bag and LV-119 covert rear plate. The quality is phenomenal and seems very durable, with strong Velcro to attach the straps, cummerbund, patches etc. The carrier is basically sized perfectly for the plate size of your choosing, in my case medium, so be sure to know which size plate you want before purchasing. The fit is perfect. I’m a 5’7 battle gnome and the carrier is neither too large nor too small, I was surprised at how much mobility I had wearing the carrier while it was loaded with 4 mags, a medkit, a knife, and a couple tourniquets and tools. Comparing the size and capability of this carrier to the LBT6094 or crye JPC for example, the carrier proves to have just about the same loadout carrying capability in a much lower profile, much more comfortable system. The shoulder straps and plate bag are cut intelligently, making shouldering the rifle a breeze, so much so that it’s almost like you aren’t wearing a plate carrier. The carrier has an extremely small profile and can easily be scaled up or scaled down in seconds depending on your needs. Furthermore, it is extremely modular, this vest makes it very easy to attach or change components to match your mission. The multicam pattern is eye candy and when you buy it your friends will swoon over the sexy, high quality piece of equipment you have. Other times you might sit and stare at it for a couple hours, admiring the craftsmanship, usefulness, and looks of the item. All in all this carrier is fantastic and I would highly recommend.
*** The LV/119 FRONT Plate Bag requires a REAR Bag and Cummerbund for proper operation. ***
The LV/119 SYSTEM.
The LV/119 SYSTEM is a group of products that work together to give end-users the ability to scale their equipment to their current needs. The fact that this is a cohesive system means that users can mix and match accessories in most cases. For example: One could take a C O V E R T Front or Rear Plate bag and use it with an O V E R T Front and Rear Plate Bag. Users may also also cross pollinate cummerbunds, shoulder covers, and other parts that will be available. The SYSTEM encompasses many parts, some of which are currently available and some that are in development, such as Back Panels of various types, MOLLE cummerbunds, First Spear Tubes™ integrations, and different placards.
The O V E R T shares the same profile as the C O V E R T plate bags but with modifications that make it more suitable for high profile operations. The front bag features a 3 Row / 4 Column MOLLE field that doubles as a 6” x 3” Velcro Field. This may be used to attach End User Devices (EUDs), such as those made by KAGWERKS or Juggernaut Defense. The Velcro may be used to mount placards, patches, and IR identifiers. The MOLLE can also be used to mount administrative pouches, frag grenade pouches, or anything else users may require quick need access to. Every front plate bag comes standard with sewn loops on the sides for attaching First Spear TUBES™ for use with our tubes cummerbund (available soon).
Placard and Chest Rig Integration.
All LV/119 Plate Bags offer placard and chest rig integration via removable 1 Inch ITW NEXUS Buckles. These clips are removable, allowing users to reduce the signature of the plate bag if it is being worn under a cover shirt or being utilized in a low-profile role.
Push To Talk Support.
Each O V E R T front plate bag comes standard with a PTT/Porkchop Loop on either side.
Communication Cable Routing.
The Modern Warfighter and Law Enforcement Officer has a radio. To date, the majority of manufacturers have not taken end-user communications needs in to their design considerations - we endeavor to break that paradigm. The O V E R T front bag offers open shoulders to facilitate commo cable routing inside the plate bags and over the shoulders. It also offers small routing points by the 1 Inch ITW NEXUS buckles on the chest - easily accommodating PTT cable routing.
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"
Extra Large- 11" x 14.00"
Thickness - MAXIMUM of 1.20"

I got tired of all my buddies making fun of me in their Crye and Ferro, so I got this and flexed on them. I am a large individual (I am absolutely yolked) and this fits perfect on me (Large). The stitching and material is superior and I would not hesitate to buy it again.
Awesome plate carrier set up. Easily one of my favorite plate carriers. Extremely slick, and comfortable. The best part is the customer service team that works hard.
im a big feller so i exxpected this to look like a fancy bib but it actually fits surprisingly well, covers all it needs to, super comfortable, this with the Overt Rear and Micro Fight chassis is just perfect. the wait is worth it.
Super super good piece of kit, for a reasonable price. The fit is excellent, the attachments are awesome, and the options are limitless. Will perform extremely well for you whether you're training at the range or in a real life situation. I would definitely buy another one, and probably will.
Even the overt carrier is sleek. Minimum profile with maximum scalability. I threw on my Spiritus chest rig and the kit works perfectly. Fit and finish for this carrier is impressive and its time to run laps, drills and mags through this kit to see how far it will go and how it holds up, but so far I have a lot of confidence in this gear. Cable management is pretty good with the available slots and if you want to throw on your phone for extra larping with ATAK it'll mount rigidly. It might be Overt but its still slick enough to conceal under almost all clothing except for my shmedium guys out there. For my keyboard commandos, throw in those plates, slap in those mags and run this kit hard. So far this gear works well and you can trust spiritus systems in your shooting endeavors and physical training.
Ordered on a Sunday, received the following Wednesday. Product fits and functions as advertised! I wish I'd known to purchase shoulder covers at the same time. I'll have to watch for OD green to come back in stock.
In order to wear this for work I needed to size up to the XL, in order to fit my issued plates. I’ve only worn this set up for a week (I’ve worn my personal LV119 for numerous courses), and I can already tell it’s far superior to my issues carrier. It’s lighter weight, not at all bulky, and strips down everything you don’t need. Even with a fully loaded micro fight, side armor, dangler pouch, and back panel I no longer get hot spots or a sore back, even when wearing it all night for a barricaded suspect or *ahem* civil unrest.
Just purchased my second complete rig and this is definitely some of the best quality gear on the market. Always well thought out designs, extremely durable and comfortable. This most order I made was somewhat of a large one, had a small hiccup with the order but customer service was extremely fast. They fixed everything, hooked it up with some extra and the time it took to get to me wasn't even delayed much at all. Honestly, Spiritus is one of my favorite companies and they'll always have my business.
There's a reason these are rarely in stock: they're outstanding pieces of kit. Minimalist, super durable, and very comfortable. Wore mine during a three hour trek through the mountains in the rain and often forgot I was wearing it.
Very well made front plate carrier. I've spent a good amount of time determining what carrier system would meet my needs regarding quality, longevity, and scalability. The overt fits the bill exceptionally well. As a civilian I'm confident I've made a great choice here.
I was so excited to finally be able to get the LV119 well part of it that is. The front bag is built very well and the materials used are top notch. I added on my Micro Fight Chassis and it fits the kit perfect. Looking forward to getting the rest of the pieces.
I’ve been running a Ferro slickster for awhile now and was finally able to catch a LV119 drop. I have to say that the 119 is much more comfortable. I have yet to run it hard but I have no doubt it will live up to the name it’s got for itself
Perfect fit and durable materials. Highly recommended!
Just received my MC Black LV119, shipping was fast and it arrived sooner than expected even being in California. I have 10x12 lightweight level 3 plates from Botach and they fit extremely snug But they do fit. the tri-fold shoulder wraps are more way more comfortable than I thought they would be and I can wear it under a hoodie or light jacket with basically Zero printing. I didn’t buy this to play pretend at the range and I’m not LEO or Military so this minimalist design fits my needs perfectly. And it only weighs 8lbs with my plates. Do yourself a favor and set up notifications on Instagram or Facebook so you don’t get left behind the next time they’re in stock.
The LV-119 carrier definitely exceeded my expectations. After transitioning from active duty to the guard I was able to use my own gear. Spiritus was recommended to me by a couple of dudes so I decided to try it out. I spent 2 weeks out training in over 105 degree weather and the LV-119 kept me much cooler than the issued stuff would have. It was comfortable, light weight, and extremely versatile. I had the elastic cumberbund which was great as well. I am very glad that i purchased this system.
Comfort goes a long way and the Overt system is built with comfort and high speed.
You know that feeling of opening up a gift already knowing what’s inside because it’s what you wanted. Well that’s exactly what you’re going to get with this carrier. You already know this is the cleanest looking carrier on the market which is why you are here to purchase one. As far as quality and feel, it’s everything you would expect from any top notch company. I was fortunate to snag an overt front and covert back after waiting months and all I need now is the elastic cummerbund to complete my kit. I can’t say this enough... you won’t regret getting this.
Great plate carrier. Minimalistic enough to not be bulky, and still holds the plates I need for work. Great quality, great stuff!
Spiritus Systems products in general have been elite down to every last thread. I was told it was challenging to piece together a complete carrier and this was proven to be false. Where the demand is very high and having exactly what you want the moment you want it isn’t always possible, this is what we should expect and look forward to in an American company making products that are made by people who care. On the topic of people who care, I had an issue with an online feature of the site and after reaching out, within minutes a guy from spiritus was calling me to clear everything up and they did. That is customer service and you just don’t see that enough anymore. With a little patience and due diligence I have been able to complete my Lv119 with all the accessories I wanted without going to EBay and spending a fortune in the matter of a month and I couldn’t be happier. Great work Spiritus!
This product is amazing. It fits me perfectly and feels great. It is very comfortable to wear for extended periods of time and seems to have the durability to continually do so.
Awesome comfort that allows for great mobility.
I have an OTB plate carrier and a normal overt carrier as well. Plus the various micro fight parts and cummerbund. Everything is super well constructed with clean stitching and a perfect fit for my plates and me too. Works great with many third party MOLLE accessories as well. Highly recommended! Would buy again.
Very quality made product and great modular design. I was blown away by the weight considering how rugged the PC is. I run gear very hard and this carrier will last!
Comfortable, minimalist, and still very modular.
Easily the best PC setup I've had the pleasure of working with. Everything you need and nothing that you don't. Love the modularity with the Micro Fight Chasis.
Very High Quality, Low Profile, Comfortable, Light Weight...pretty much perfect
Easy setup, good fit and accurate size. Comfy so far and super slick fit.
Got the front carrier along with the OVERT back and 5" cummerbund option. The carrier exceeded my expectations even after watching hundreds of reviews stating that it was one of the best plate carriers on the market. Well built, nice attention to detail, and although the OVERT is still a slick design, it's still is very versatile. I've never had issues with not having room for extra items and gear. I'm a small dude, yet the medium bag still allowed me to get the carrier tight, and even still had room to go smaller if needed. I don't leave reviews, but Spiritus deserves this one. I can't say enough about it. If you're considering buying one, do it.
You can’t go wrong with this especially if you need this style of slim bag. Help me on rucks and especially drills on live fire. It will stay in place and was a lot tougher than I thought it would be. Look into this if you NEED it. CA guard!
Fits most plates and works great!
Honestly. This is the best carrier system on the market. Hands down. The modularity is worth the price ALONE. Add on top of that a long list of facts. Best Material I’ve seen used. Stitching is flawless. Velcro is nice and aggressive. Design is flawless and super sleek. The Micro Fight Rig is the heart of this equipment. Buy it. Buy everything. You owe yourself the best. And here you are. Do it.
Its hard to find negative points. The only one is that I live in Austria and that I either can order directly from Spiritus or from tacticalkit.uk Regarding the OVERT System: it is the best.. and I have used many Plate Carrier from different brands. And the OVERT is in my opinion the most modular system on the market. The front is easy to adapt with the velcro and the buckles.
Spiritus uses obviously high quality materials for all their products, and the lv119 Overt front panel is no exception. I am able to position it perfectly for what I need to keep holes out of. The only thing that I've observed that MAY not be good for everyone are the shoulder straps, which come straight up. For most people this won't be a problem, but if you're built like a brick house and have a massive neck, then it might rub you and nobody wants that. I'll recommend this to 95% of people.
Super comfortable, incredibly lightweight, but still high quality, this will always be my go to plate carrier.
Top quality. Comfortable to wear for extended periods of time. You can tell spiritus takes pride in their products
