The Variable Armor Carrier (VAC) is the most versatile carrier in the SORD armor carrier range. It can be worn as a plate carrier offering protection to the front and rear, cutting weight and profile. With wings and soft armor inserts added they incorporate the plate carrier set up into a full armor carrier. The sides can be added or subtracted as the user requires. The side wings can hold soft armor inserts as well as small hard plates.
With the single jettison handle, quick system cut-away is achieved in emergency casualty access, maritime / aircraft accident, WMD decontamination situations. The four cable jettison system activates much faster and more effectively than previous designs. Mil-spec mesh material has been used as the backing face to reduce weight and provide breathability of the armor in hot environments to avoid mildew build up. Sagging of the cummerbund has been eliminated with the addition of a fold-over Velcro sandwich on either side that transfers weight on a vertical axis as opposed to the older standard Velcro wrap that peels off under weight.
