Completely Satisfied Review by Gregory H / (Posted on 4/7/2017)
I think two things would perhaps improve upon the already excellent design. A larger admin pouch area and shoulder buckles for easier on/off transitions.

Great kit, high quality, good price. Review by Big A / (Posted on 3/11/2017)
After owning several PCs over the course of 8 years, to include Tyr Tactical, and First Spear, I have to say, this one has features of those, and Crye, all in one, with a couple of tweaks that would make it better. The good: comfortable, high quality, light weight, well made, modular. For being a sort of "minimalist" PC, it's loaded with features, such as its modular front chest area, and it's ability to accept Crye AVS zip on back pouches, First Spear laser cut slots, and also being able to accept Velocity, HSP, and Mayflower placards.
I recently used it for a 10hr training session with my unit (LEO), and it performed well, mounted with a Velocity Systems helium whisper quad M4 mag pouch, double pistol, IFAK/TQ, and flashlight pouch., Lvl IV plates, and Police patches mounted to the front & back Velcro fields. For the straps being minimalist, they were fairly comfortable with my load out, and handled the weight ok, although I will probably add some small padding to prevent chafing over long periods. The small zippered admin pouch is small, but fits what I needed (pen, notebook). The inner material is cool, even without padding, almost like a moisture wicking like material. Over the course we ran that day, man down, barricades, prone, supine, kneeling, run n gun, it held up well. We ran about 1,000 rounds, including pistol, and the load was distributed fairly evenly. A few of my teammates ran it, and liked it, and ranged from small frame to large, for reference, Im 6'00, 260lbs, I own the XL size and could've even used a large. The negative, and there's not a lot: the cummerbund could use some sort of inner stiffener, as it can sag a little with weight (my weak side had an IFAK and light pouch, strong side had a spare TQ. Pistol pouch was mounted in front of m4 pouch. If you added side soft armour, it could probably work to added stiffness. The plate pocket could use some kind of strap/Velcro to adjust and secure the plates better, but overall it worked fine. Overall, lots of features, well thought out, modular, light weight, and high quality. You won't go wrong with thus PC.

Great kit, high quality. Review by Big A / (Posted on 3/11/2017)
Very light weight, and well built. I have several PCs (Tyr tactical/First Spear). I must say this is my favorite so far. Fit is good, I ordered an XL, and have a little room to play, I'm 6'00, 260lbs, and works perfectly for me. I like the laser cut slots, like my first spear, and the low profile shoulder straps, like the Crye JPC, best of both worlds. If they found a way to add an inner stiffener in the cummerbund like my Tyr Tactical PC, it would be perfect. My plates fit snug, but do not allow for up/down movement (inner strap/Velcro, etc), but once I add an armor backer, I'm hoping the slack will come out. The inner liner is cool, and comfortable, even without inner pads. The front chest area is very modular, allowing to attach Velocity/mayflower/HSP type placards, use standard pouches, or go low pro with inner pouches. I use this as my LEO PC, with an 5.11 IFAK,/CAT TQ, handheld light pouch mounted on my weak side, and Velocity Systems Helium Whisper quad M4 pouch mag pouch, with double pistol mags mounted to the front, as well as department/police patches on the front/rear Velcro fields. It distributes weight pretty good with my Lvl IV plates inserted. I recently used it during my units training day, and it I could not believe how well it worked out. 10 hrs of of running n gunning drills, prone, supine, including a man down drill. It was fairly comfortable considering I didn't have shoulder pads on the straps yet. A few of my teammates tried it out, and we're trying to take it from me by the end of the day. Our issued PCs are a little bulky and heavy, and chafe quite a bit on long training days.
I may eventually add a small hydration pouch on the back, and pads on the shoulder straps, but as it sits now, it works bette than my Tyr tactical,PC, which can be a little bulky, and as light as my FIrst Spear PC.
All in all, so far, great piece of kit, high quality, well designed, and thought out, a few small tweaks to the inner plate pouch, and stiffener for cummerbund, but that's just my personal opinion.

The Carrier that doesn't have the spotlight it deserves Review by Scott F / (Posted on 1/24/2017)
The Carrier is small, neat and well designed. I wasn't aware of all the features until I had it in my hands. It's light, durable and very comfortable to shoot with. For a smaller guy like me, it's the perfect size and shape to adapt a low profile battle belt that will sync nicely with this kit. I enjoy this more than the Crye JPC in many ways, but it's all preference. Direct Action really outdid themselves with this kit. Unfortunately I don't have Direct Action Pouches right now, I'm sure when I order some, it'll sync nicely. I recommend this carrier and is in the top of my top 5 overall!

Plate carrier Review by Kurt W / (Posted on 8/26/2016)
I have only had this carrier for a few weeks. The carriers measurements seem a little small overall. However, it fits the plate sizes with soft backers perfectly and snugly. During a recent training evolution I did notice that the cumberbun droops under load without side plates. It does not allow for a great deal of up and down manipulation inside of the front and back plate pocket. The feel of the carrier is very comfortable despite the thin rigid look of the shoulder straps and there are plenty of routing options included. The modification and rapid loadout adjustment provided by the fastex attachment points and the front mounted Velcro are easily one of the best features provided. Overall, scalability, modularity and comfort seem to be top notch until further use of this product proves otherwise. I would recommend it to most.

Fantastic Carrier Review by Anthony L / (Posted on 8/5/2016)
I haven't done any classes or training with this so all I can talk about is the construction, which is incredible. I got the Medium carrier for my SKD 10x12 IV Plates. I'm 6' 225lbs with a bit of a gut and cummerbund fits fine, with plenty of room. Not shown in the pictures, the rear of teh cummerbund attaches with velcro and there is a small section of elastic material on each side that help with movement when wearing it.

Love it. Review by Ida P / (Posted on 7/15/2016)
I love the plate carrier. It fits my medium plates perfectly well from Patriot Defense. The only thing I don't like is the fact that it doesn't come in Urban Gray for the US market. But overall, the Adaptive Green is really nice. Great product, and I'm confident in it as I will be wearing it to a class going to Tactical Response.

Comfier then my JPC. Review by Rory H / (Posted on 7/15/2016)
I have owned a JPC (Jumpable Plate Carrier) before I bought this one for doing PT and range practice on my own time outside of my unit and let me tell you the overall fit and comfort of running the Spitfire definitely made me regret buying the JPC. The only gripe I have about running this carrier is the plastic rings for the shoulder adjustment however how much gear is produced today that runs plastic buckles and furniture without causing an issue? A lot. So time will tell but from my experiences so far from the ease of swapping pouches using the DAG ones the laser cut molle makes life a lot easier and makes for a tidier and lighter package.

A well thought out and well crafted product Review by Thomas C / (Posted on 7/15/2016)
Purchased this to replace a First Spear Strandhogg. The Spitfire was better thought out, and better workmanship to boot. The stitching is tighter and seems to hold better. The laser cut MOLLE is also reinforced and a little denser. (I started stretching the MOLLE panel holes in the Strandhogg after a few days...) there is also a greater deal of flexibility in how you adjust the fit which is nice. The only areas that I find weak are the drag handle, which could stand some reinforcement, and the current lack of a quick release... Outside of that, I am very happy with the carrier. It sits comfortably and high enough to make room for a battle belt, or rappel seat, without collision or interference...

Great Plate Carrier Review by Jonathan D / (Posted on 7/12/2016)
Outstanding construction! Comfortable with the 10x12 Velocity Systems plates I have. More affordable than other options and extreme level of quality. I haven't worn it for extended periods of time yet but I am very impressed with this carrier. I am looking forward to additional enhancements to become available.
