The primary purpose of plate gear is to carry body armour, providing protection against ballistic threats. On the outside, the back panel can hold pouches, and other equipment mounted on the back panel MOLLE webbing. Powtegic offers a variety of different types of plate gear. A vest plate carrier or bulletproof plate carrier is a piece of tactical equipment that, when combined with a bulletproof plate, is actually a “bulletproof” undershirt or body armor. Flat racks are used primarily by tactical personnel for weight-bearing equipment, but their use in fitness programs or in a variety of outdoor activities is becoming more common.
