The Tier 1 Operator Plate Carrier is the first of its kind and was developed with input from local law enforcement. The Lattice Weave Molle system is Voodoo's original design and is totally unique by allowing the user to mount pouches and accessories horizontally, verically or diagonally. The adjustable shoulders have extra thick padding for comfort when carrying heavy loads. The side-adjust straps have quick-release buckles for rapid vest removal. The inside mesh material is breathable and reduces sweating in high temperatures. The bottom portion of the carrier is wider so that soft ballistic panels fit securely.
