    The Vanquish - Making versatility standard

    This top of the line professional kit is an advanced carrier system that is actively used by SWAT Teams across the US.  The Vanquish is a completely modular system that redefines what a carrier system should be and enable you to adapt your kit to what ever the mission requires. If you're serious about winning the fight the Vanquish is an optimal choice.    

    The Vanquish features a light weight base carrier that has a small QD waist strap for use if the removable cummerbund is not installed.  It includes the VAS buckles for attachment of the front panel which can be a flat molle, triple M4/Pistol, or Triple M4/Quad Pistol panel.  These panels can be removed for a more minimalist & slimmed down profile.  Side plate pouches are included and can hold a 6x6 side plate. The side plate pouches are removable and adjustable so they are great for storing of mags, multi-tools, zip cuffs, or other gear.  The Map Pouch has a zipper for quick access to contents, or the zipper can be removed for standard velcro closure. Carrier comes with all components shown (including one panel of your choice) and is available in black or tan, all parts will match the color selected.

    In an effort to continually improve our quality control and deliver a more thorough product all armor plates manufactured after January 1st, 2018 will have a "core test sample point" on the back of the plate. This sample point will look like a small 1/8" hole in the coating on the backside of the plate located within a square on the label. This is not a hole in the steel and you will be able to see raw steel inside. This is not a flaw and this hole is intentional.  This sample point is part of an exhaustive quality control process to ensure that our coating, the steel, and the bonding properties between the two are correct.  Although the coating does not entirely envelope the plate, this sample point does not in any way impact the durability, stopping power, fragmentation control, or overall effectiveness.  This is simply for us to ensure that these plates are being made to our rigorous specifications.  We are proud that we have never once had to issue a recall and this is one more way to guarantee that will continue.  Should you ever find a flaw in the coating outside of the designated "core test sample point" box, please let us know.
