The British Osprey MkII Plate Carrier Set is an authentic British Army body armor carrier system. British Army soldiers used this body armor system extensively in the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. We managed to secure a small quantity of these unissued carrier sets that were destined to be used in the UK's next desert conflict but were instead sold as surplus stock. This is the complete carrier set that has all of the pieces of the ensemble to include the front and rear covers, high and low collars, shoulder pads, and brassard covers. Just add your own front and rear plates and you have a first rate body armor system at a great price.
British Osprey MkII Plate Carrier Set
The British Osprey MkII system is a British Ministry of Defense designed body armor system. With an emphasis on being fully modular and build around a traditional vest configuration, pouches and accessories are universally compatible among all Osprey designated gear. This modular design has numerous benefits to include standardized supply chain in the field, cross compatibility between load bearing vest and armor system, and reduced training issues for soldiers and support staff.
These Osprey MkII Plate Carrier Systems came to us from a British Ministry of Defense offering of goods that were never issued. This means the plate carrier system you receive will be brand new without any signs of use and will be ready for you to customize to your own specifications. Some of the customization options would include deciding which type of armor plates to purchase for the front and rear panels or which Osprey pouches you would like to add. One of the best things about the Osprey system is that it makes extensive use of Molle attachment points so you can also utilize non-Osprey specific pouches or gear with your Osprey MkII body armor system.
