Mayflower Low Profile Armor Carrier

At a quick glance, most plate carrierThe disappearing dog tricks look the same. And to many, who primarily use them for range use or lighter abuse situations, you may not notice the difference between the untold number of options out there. I have run most types of carriers you can imagine overseas where your choice of product very much makes a difference in your daily life. When you are out in the elements and terrain, having to perform awkward physical tasks while kitted up, running between cover and generally being awesome, for hours or days on end, you really start to notice the difference in carriers, quality, and thought put into them. Mayflower is one of those companies that I think got it right. So I am going to start this series of reviews with the Low Profile Armor Carrier.

 

Picking the carrier up, with soft armor included you will initially notice the weight. Or lack thereof. Which is impressive given the amount of sensitive areas the armor covers. The stitching is doubled or tacked where its appropriate which is a good indicator of what the manufacturer knows about wear and tear of their own product as opposed to stitching every fold, crease and corner for no reason whatsoever other than it feels more solid. Which of course makes it stiffer, heavier and less comfortable. There isn’t excess webbing where there doesn’t need to be and the 500D cordura it is made from is only double layered where the wear and tear requires it. I don’t need a kit that has ballistic protection properties before I even put the armor in.

Field Test

You will notice it does provide substantially more IIIA coverage than a traditional plate carrier or even other low profile rigs. It has increased upper lung coverage for those pesky thoracic penetrations, side coverage (more than your standard cummerbund armor inserts) and a little bit lower than the cummerbund attachment on the front. Now usually that means bulkier and more uncomfortable. Believe me when I say I am very critical of the bulkiness and discomfort of kits as I am not a huge guy and I am a big advocate of streamlined kits, not this molle on molle circus I see around sometimes. (Get a gear shake out for Thor’s sake). When you put it on and adjust the elastic cummerbund, made of a very heavy-duty stretch material and simply connected via velcro under a flap in the rear, no wazoo 550 cord puzzles to curse your way through, you will immediately feel how snug and comfortable this carrier is. It is snug but not restrictive at all. The elastic band and rounded edges of the armor and carrier cuts allow for a great deal of articulation when moving about in the odd ways we are required to. Including inside a vehicle, where, you are welcome, I drove into town and sat in traffic for hours to check this with no annoyance or discomfort other than every one else besides me not knowing how to drive.Mayflower- LPAC- Peter- 6

 

After miles upon miles of trekking, climbing, you name it, I did not identify any hotspots for rubbing, pinching, binding or general discomfort. It was actually very comfortable for the duration of testing. You guys all know most kits, even some of my favorites all have that ONE spot that drives you up the wall after a night of delivering freedom across the globe. The plates have their own standalone pockets external of the soft armor pocket which allows the carrier shape and cut, not the plate to dictate shape and mold to the operator’s body. It really does make the difference over the course of so many hours of wear. This also helps to smooth out those bulky plate corners from poking out, giving you away and ruining the surprise party.

 

The front panel has four total, two on each side, closed elastic loops for cable management, or string Christmas lights through on your way to the rave. Also on the body side of the front panel is two Swiftclip attachment points just like the exterior, to connect their Level IIIA armor groin protector. The clips are easily removable if unwanted. The carrier is designed to quickly clip your Mayflower chest rig or elastic/molle placard right into place just like their other carriers. The elastic placard is a great idea if you want to keep your primary weapon mags on your person without attaching an entire kit, while maintaining a low profile and the ability to deliver immediate hate and discomfort to the wrong side of your operation.

The front of the rig has velcro (because we all love our velcro) with a large section on the front of the chest and the rest allocated lower for the cummerbund attachment. It’s great for when a low vis op goes sideways and you want a nice big Mayflower- LPAC- Peter- 4American flag on you to help differentiate between you and people who need their recommended daily dose of “pew”. Same goes for the rear of the carrier. The front also has two strips of Molle on each side of the velcro to hold the Swiftclip system allowing the chest rigs or placards to be quickly added or taken off. I will get into that later for the chest rig review, but it is a very simple and easy to use system I have really taken a liking to after using it.

The shoulder straps are as adjustable as you could need them to be, even for a smaller frame like me it adjusted down just fine. My large comrade had no issue adjusting my carrier and running it himself, so there’s no adjust-ability issues I could identify. It comes in the traditional small, medium, large and XL. If you cannot fit you are most likely ridin’ dirty on the little rascal scooters at the grocery store and have zero use for this product. Even without the padded straps I really did not have any mentionable rubbing or discomfort due to the design. The straps are not incredibly thick so it allows for nice wearing in and fitting to the sweaty user after not much time at all. However if you opt for the padded straps they are a bit wider to help distribute the heavier loads and is composed of 3D mesh, that unlike traditional pads, do not rub on one point because each layer is independent of each other and moves with your movements, not against. Just be cognizant they are wider if you have that “all natural” linebacker neck. There is also a flap over the top with two elastic loops underneath to facilitate your comms cable management to help keep you from looking like “that guy” and being choked out by your own radio while yelling at people through an interpreter.

Overall I think its an excellent carrier. It’s well built with the right materials, and put together in a way that instills confidence in your gear. The design is obviously driven by end users as I had no complaints of discomfort during the course of testing. It incorporates intelligent design additions such as the closed elastic cable loops and separate plate pockets and a very simple cummerbund adjustment in the rear.

The best part? All of Mayflower Research and Development’s materials and workmanship is made ONE HUNDRED PERCENT IN THE M-Fing U S of A. Take a knee, face out, drink water and drive on.

Mayflower Research And Consulting Low Profile Armor Carrier

By Jeff Takeda

I clearly remember the day I was issued SWAT gear after being selected for the team. Entry rifle, handgun, brand new uniforms, boots, even gloves! Then they handed me an entry vest. Our team was in the process of transitioning to a new version. As new ones were coming in from the manufacturer, the senior members of the team received them. That left the older vests to us new guys. The old vests were worn, heavy, and not comfortable. You couldn’t adjust the length of the torso at all and the Velcro barely stayed closed. The poor design of the closure system caused the front of the vest to detach from the weight of the gear-laden pouches attached to the front. It was a “modular system” meaning it had PALS webbing on the front, but that was it as far as modularity. The cut of the vest was typical of LE/ SWAT entry vests at the time, giving you a lot of coverage, but sacrificing some mobility.

Being a self-admitted gear snob and knowing there were much better options out there, I requested permission to buy my own and use it while I waited for a new one. I received the okay and happily went shopping. In order to help justify the purchase, I rationalized that I needed a vest that would fit multiple roles. SWAT is not my main assignment, it’s an ancillary duty at my agency. My primary assignment is plainclothes detective, occasionally requiring me to don body armor and a tactical vest quickly. Further, the vest needed to be something I can drive in, and/or wear under a cover shirt or jacket. I needed a system that could fill SWAT cop and a detective roles, and switch between those roles quickly.

Enter Mayflower Research and Consulting’s Low Profile Assault Armor Carrier (LPAAC) package with level IIIA soft armor. The LPAAC consists of a level IIIA concealable vest inside a 500 denier carrier which can also hold rifle plates. The LPAAC has PALs webbing front and back, and is a modular system which allows for addition of a ballistic groin protector as well.

I’ve used this rig for the past year. It has filled my two law enforcement roles and has other benefits. I’ve used the vest for training operations, on call outs and warrant services, as worn it at the Best Of The West SWAT competition.

Specifications/Description:

The Low Profile Assault Armor Carrier I purchased consisted of the carrier with soft armor panels, the Mayflower Gen IV Chest rig, and the ballistic groin protector. The carrier holds level IIIA soft armor panels made by Velocity Systems LLC. These panels are NIJ certified and in compliance with the National Institute of Justice (NIJ) Standard-0101.04. They also meet or exceed the USASOC Fragmentation requirements and meet or exceed the DEA test protocol. The panels provide upper torso protection including side protection, much like a standard concealable vest.

Used by itself, you could actually wear it like a standard concealable vest under a uniform shirt, although I didn’t do this for an extended amount of time. Hard armor plates are held in pockets attached to the outside of the soft armor carrier. This allows the soft armor to act as not only a plate-backer, but helps the vest mold to the shape of the wearer’s body and adds to overall comfort.

The vest utilizes an adjustable cummerbund system, which assists with distributing the overall weight of the vest so it does not rest completely on the shoulders. The adjustability is also helpful with weather changes and girth changes arising from the sudden stomach expansion caused by a food blister. Mayflower says the adjustability is helpful when adding 6” x 6” hard armor side plates, for which there are integral pockets in the cummerbund. Either way, the addition of extra hard armor or lard is made easier by the adjustability of the cummerbund system.

The Low-Profile Assault Armor Carrier also features webbing for use with removable ITW-Nexus SwiftClip Buckles on the front of the vest. This allows the user to quickly attach or detach various chest rigs to or from the carrier. For my vest I used Mayflower’s excellent Generation IV chest rig. Another example of a compatible chest rig is the Haley Strategic Partner’s D3R chest rig.

takeda_mayflower02

According to Mayflower, this type of configuration “Allows the individual to use the same loadout with or without armor or have multiple chest rigs configured for different mission requirements.” During my testing of this kit, I found this feature to be extremely useful, more on this in a few.

The attachment of a chest rig is accomplished by clipping the top of a compatible chest rig to the vertical female ITW-Nexus buckles on the front of the rig. This allows the chest rig to literally hang to the front of the vest. The chest rig is kept in place and snug to the vest by the Swift Clip buckle system that attaches horizontally to the sides of the vest. This buckle and strap system pulls the chest rig tight so it doesn’t move at all and doesn’t need to be “MOLLE’d” in. The benefit here is the quick attaching and detaching of the system.

It should be noted that Mayflower also offers a slick version of this rig. It’s the same setup but without the extra MOLLE, and still allows the attachment of a compatible chest rig. The slick version has the ITW-Nexus buckles on the front to allow the attachment of chest rigs. The ITW buckles can also be removed, if you want to use the system like a regular concealable vest.

Donning and Doffing the LPAAC

When donning the LPAAC, I put the carrier on first without the chest rig attached. After securing the cummerbund, I clip the Mayflower Gen IV chest rig on, tighten the side straps and am ready to go. Although this process involves an extra step, it actually makes donning the vest easier since I’m not trying to deal with all the weight of the vest at one time. I also didn’t feel like it took me any longer to don the vest.

It’s also nice to be able to quickly ditch some of the weight off your vest during down times in training, without having to completely take your vest off. And again, the ability to remove a good portion of the weight from the vest, via the chest rig, makes doffing the LPAAC nice and easy.

Armor Coverage and Protection

When loaded with soft armor and front and back rifle plates, the LPAAC offers you the same coverage as a concealable vest coverage plus plate coverage. This is more protection than just a standard plate carrier, but less than traditional SWAT entry vests with throat and arm protection. Mayflower does offer an optional ballistic groin protector which attaches by use of ITW-Nexus buckles at the bottom of the carrier.

Mobility and Comfort

The reduced coverage of the LPAAC gives the system a high degree of mobility and makes it a more comfortable vest. The cummerbund does an excellent job of taking weight off of the shoulders. In addition, Mayflower also offers padded shoulder pieces for the shoulder straps on the LPAAC.

I’ve worn the full LPAAC set up (armor, ammo, TASER, radio, water, miscellaneous personal gear) at SWAT training for over a year. I have also worn the LPAAC for several hours on call-outs. I found the vest to be the most comfortable armor system I have ever used. I never feel like my movement is restricted and I’m able to get into shooting positions easily and naturally.

takeda_mayflower03A

Modularity

I have been able to use the vest in other roles, outside SWAT, due to the LPAAC’s low profile and modularity. On a surveillance detail, I was able to wear the stripped down carrier without chest rig underneath a cover shirt. When it was time to conduct an entry, I was easily able to clip on a D3R chest rig outfitted with ammo for my carbine, pistol, a radio, cuffs, TQ, trauma kit, digital camera, voice recorder, and lucky pen in less than a minute. Mayflower’s claims about the versatility of this vest are very true. I have my “SWAT Load Out” configured in my Mayflower Gen IV chest rig and my “Detective Entry Load Out” in the smaller D3R rig.

But the ability to quickly switch between load outs is not the only benefit to this system. During a high risk SWAT search warrant, I needed to get up a ladder to clear an attic crawl space. I was able to quickly “slim down” my profile by detaching my chest rig and going slick to get into the smaller space.

In 2014 my team participated in the Best In The West annual SWAT Competition in Santa Clara, California. The LPAAC’s slim, modular design came in really handy. Some stages allowed competitors to wear just body armor without the extra kit. It was nice to be able to just remove my chest rig, instead of having to bring an extra slick vest, remove individual items from the vest, or have the extra bulk of empty pouches on the front of the vest.

ADM 1

During training with a large Sheriff’s Department SWAT team, I observed that team members were issued a slick plate carrier in addition to their regular entry vest. The plate carrier was to be used during bus and airplane assaults, where they needed a smaller profile. Here is another instance where the LPAAC’s modular design would be very effective by eliminating the need to purchase, store, and maintain another piece of kit.

In conclusion, I’ve found the Mayflower Low Profile Assault Armor Carrier to be an outstanding piece of kit. The LPAAC gives the increased mobility of a plate carrier but with the added protection of a level IIIA concealable vest. The modular, low profile design of this system allows the LPAAC to fill multiple roles from simple concealable body armor up to a full entry vest, with front, back, side plates and groin protection. The LPAAC is especially well suited for military or law enforcement units where you need to keep a low profile, but at the same time have the protection and kit readily available for more overt, high risk tasks such as an entry or vehicle take down. Mayflower did a great a job with this kit and I can’t recommend it enough.
