The overt system has proven to me that it is a top of the line plate carrier and critical event response system. I have utilized the overt carrier system for a few critical incidents so far and I have been happy to have such a versatile and comfortable system.
*** The LV/119 OVERT Rear Plate Bag requires a Front Bag and Cummerbund for proper operation. ***
The LV/119 SYSTEM
The LV/119 SYSTEM is a family 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 end-users are able to 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 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. These include Back Panels of various types, MOLLE cummerbunds, First Spear Tubes™ integrations, and different placards.
The LV/119 O V E R T Rear Plate bag was built for those who need a scalable vest to wear in a multitude of environments ranging from Low Visibility to Direct Action. The O V E R T shares the same profile as the C O V E R T plate bags, while possessing additional features that make it more suitable for high profile operations. The rear plate bag features full integration of our Recovery Handle™. The rear bag also features minimal MOLLE webbing and Zippers for future integrations with our Zip-on panels that will be available later this year.

Back Panel Support.
The rear bag also features minimal MOLLE webbing and Zippers for future integrations with our Zip-on panels that will be available later this year. Note: The back panel integration is proprietary and will not support other brands of back panels.
Communications 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 offers open shoulders to facilitate commo cable routing inside the plate bags and over the shoulders. Cables may also be routed through the cummerbund access.
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, which is advantageous for a few reasons.
1. There is no external mounting that can get snagged or rip off when exiting vehicles in haste.
2. The design creates a smooth profile when worn underneath clothing.
3. Velcro is NOT utilized as an attachment method. Velcro wears out over time and is a generally less-than-optimal attachment method when not supported in other ways. Velcro doesn't handle weight well and it sticks to everything, especially cloth seats.
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).
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"

I like the Overt back panel, it's high quality and they put a lot of good thought into the design for sure. Getting the right height is very easy. Velcro and molly are where you need them. I've read that people have a hard time attaching the cummerbund, but I had no issue. Very easy and intuitive.
Super comfortable, incredibly lightweight, but still high quality, this will always be my go to plate carrier.
