British Osprey MkII Plate Carrier Set - New Body Armor Carrier from the British Army
British Osprey MkII Plate Carrier Set
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.

Good Price, Great Product
Review byShane Verified Buyer
The product arrived in great condition, it came with some extra pouches. The vest alone is very comfortable and it breaths very well. All you need is to get a few plates at it's all there. For the price you won't find a better deal. I'm very pleased like always A+
superb quality and also comfy!
Review byMichael Verified Buyer
Two day shipping got me by surprise, but it's an amazing brand new feel set of armor with no signs of prior use. For me it came with both size collars, spare link clips, two ammo pouches, and a medical pouch. It took me about a half our to figure how the vest went together, but now I got it. My only woe is that a manual didn't come with it, but that's a small complaint. I hope keep shooting gets more stock of the filler Kevlar.
Hard to beat this
Review byDavid Verified Buyer
I concur, a bit of a trick to figure out, but if you can get the Brit manual, it helps. A VERY well made carrier, much sturdier, though warmer, than my US Mil issue carrier, with far more areas protected. I'm a BIG guy, 6'4, 60"shoulders. It's warm, and a bit snug, but with some AR-500 plates it's definitely a good choice. It would be nice to get the inserts. Hint.
Excellent value and quality
Review byEric Verified Buyer
A well built NEW carrier comes with both collars , a few pouches . The inside material is a mesh so your skin breathes. The mollee system is 360 degrees so plenty of places to hang stuff. It has the built in connectors to hang the Brit camelbak . The plate pouches are big like xl sapi size not 100% sure. the brassards (deltoid protectors) and collars (full and half height)take a few minutes to figure out but the snaps help line the pieces up. I hope Keepshooting gets the soft inserts for these again, as the carrier is new and will last years. Overall very happy as always with their products.
