Grey Ghost Gear GTG0295-2 SMC Plate Carrier Laminate in Black is designed to provide you with both stealth and protection during your next operation. This versatile plate carrier fills you with the confidence you need to enter any battle situation.
Grey Ghost spent more than two years developing the SMC Plate Carrier in Black. During the process, they listened to user feedback and included a host of features that the community wants in their plate carrier systems. The result is perhaps the most advanced model of its kind on the market.
Features of the SMC Plate carrier include adjustable shoulder straps and cummerbund for any body type, lightweight construction, compatibility with multiple plate types, pouches for plates by the kidneys, and back for all-round protection, and robust YKK zippers.
The system is also highly breathable, thanks to the all-around mesh. And the laser-cut nylon finish provides even more strength and tear-resistance in active mission situations.
Features of the Grey Ghost Gear SMC Plate Carrier Laminate in Black

- Lightweight nylon construction

The SMC Plate Carrier is their most advanced carrier design to date. Secretly in development for the past 2 years, the SMC (Shoot, Move, Communicate) is everything requested in a lightweight, combat-ready plate carrier. Designed to carry a pair of 10x12 hard plates or most large SAPI plates, the cummerbund features MOLLE/PALS style webbing for the addition of pouches for side plates if you prefer your kidneys remain non-perforated. The front panel also features an open pocket for maps, water/cable retention, or enough room for a fleece watch cap or gloves.
This carrier is “one size fits most” thanks to its adjustable shoulder straps and cummerbund, ensuring a snug fit for just about every warrior’s body type. Should you find yourself on fire, trapped in a tight spot, or unexpectedly going for a swim, the new ROC buckles on each shoulder strap, and either side of the cummerbund can be rapidly released in case of emergency. These also make putting on the carrier much more convenient when you are in a hurry.
The secret sauce behind the SMC is literally in the back. YKK Zippers and webbing on the back panel are designed for attaching any one of the new SMC zippered back panels, so you can specifically tailor your carrier for the mission ahead. All these panels are compatible with SOCOM issued carriers with zippered back panel systems. View the whole line in the SMC Back Panel collection.
As for the SMC carrier, a breathable mesh is built into the cummerbund and inside faces of the carrier body for enhanced comfort. Interior padding enclosed in the weave gives the wearer additional comfort and air channels to wick away moisture. There are six rows of MOLLE/PALS style webbing with built-in matching loop material on the top three rows for the option of attaching patches or ID panels.
Laser-cut laminate nylon gives you all the modularity of traditional MOLLE webbing at a significant reduction in weight while remaining strong and water/chemical resistant. Longevity is also increased as cut edges do not fray after they are heat sealed with the laser.
