Colour： Multicam Cordura 1000D
This Vest benefits from being made out of Invista® 1000D CORDURA® Nylon, with incredibly durable properties, making this gear more resistant to the usual wear and tear (up to three times more resistant than normal Nylon).
The construction is made to military specifications, which ensures that this product will last a long time, throughout all conditions. The material is resistant to water, and can handle damp environments easily, maintaining its structure.
Front flap panel open and rear attachment panel Shown below on the left is the FAR attached to the FAPC. It adds a lot more PALS on the sides. Whether that's needed in addition to a battle belt is up to the user. But if only ballistic protection on the sides is needed, the FAR panels can always be left blank, or side torso plates attached for protection against rifle rounds. I ran the FAPC at the range without the FAR, because I didn't need the extra space. It was also pretty warm that day. The FAPC was comfortable, and its low profile (and operator's cut) allowed me to use my normal isoceles hold when shooting a handgun without having the sides of the rig dig into my arms. The FAPC was stable enough as a mounting platform for my URS sling and supported the weight of the rifle when letting it hang. I've a short torso, and many rigs tend to be too long for me. I can adjust the FAPC so that it doesn't interfere with my belt rig, nor does it dig into my hips if I sit down or squat. It's definitely designed with mobility in mind. Note that since the FAPC places the plates at the correct height and not too low, I have to either run my carbine stock completely closed and place the butt on the plate (for a squared-off stance), or place the butt just to the side of the plate and roll my shoulder forward.
Although I think there are a couple of small areas which I'd like to see improved, the FAPC is an outstanding value for a compact, comfortable and mobile plate carrier.
