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.
*** 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. The bags were built to accommodate "thicker" plates, but they will not fit plates that are NOT cut to the SAPI Spec.
Medium -10" x 12.5"

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
