Ferro Concepts FCPC V5 Base

Base only! NO CUMMERBUND. Pick your own

A decade long pursuit of innovation has created the Ferro Concepts Plate Carrier (FCPC). It has maintained its status as the forefront of lightweight and adaptable plate carrier design. Largely because we just can’t leave the special operations community alone. What you see here today is the FCPC V5. The first 4 were awesome, don’t get us wrong…but we will constantly be leveling up whenever necessary.


Deliberate and precise pattern making to create a contoured framework for increased unity between the body and armor. These are fancy words to tell you that we know how the body moves AND we know how material moves. Combining that knowledge into the FCPC V5 makes it practically perfect with the potential to get better and better.


Our 500D Cordura® laminate was created to be able to take serious abuse in real world environments. (Trader Joe’s Parking Lot on a Sunday Afternoon?) Purposefully used to replace conventional materials and construction allowing us to save weight and increase durability where it’s needed.

To help address dimensional issues with modern armor options, we integrated Tweave Durastretch® panels to allow for a wider range of armor plate fitment and retention. See? We know what we are doing.


Working off our ADAPT philosophy, new and updated features have been added to increase versatility. The new zip-on back panel system, integrated into the rear plate pocket, allows quick and easy swap-out of ADAPT back panels. Laser cut MOLLE rows remain for existing compatible products.

Building upon our pioneered concealed front flap attachment system, the updated front plate pocket contains concealed G-hook attachment points and provides low profile integration of all ADAPT front flaps.

For optimal fit and function, the shoulder straps were designed to enable the user to customize the carrier to their preference with strap hardware that can be swapped from side-to-side and to other forms of preferred fastening.

For heightened mission efficiency and situational awareness, the built-in full width admin pocket is accompanied with a laser cut MOLLE panel to integrate modern mobile device platforms (such as ATAK) and associated accessories.

Check this out guys and gals! The size of the carrier has nothing to do with your shirt size but everything to do with the size of your armor plate. When choosing your plate carrier size, you will want to pick it to fit what armor you have.

    Best plate carrier I've ever used

    Posted by Tobor, the ship's android on 4th Jul 2023

    This is the best plate carrier I've used to date, and I've been through the IOTV, PIG, LBT 6094, JPC, and AVS. Specifically, the shoulder geometry lets me get better buttstock placement than any of the other carriers I've used previously. Highly recommend.

    FCPC V5

    I've worn quite a few plate carriers and this is easily one of my favorites. Nice and comfortable and still easy to shoulder a rifle with.

    FCPC V5 MC and MCB mediums

    Posted by Bc on 17th Jul 2022

    The FCPC V5 is a amazing plate carrier, good strong velcro and easy to set up. When buying the plate carrier keep in mind the size of the plates, I have rts 10x12 lv4 and the fit very snug in the medium plate bags and are very tight to get in the bags. The plate bags will stretch to we’re it will start fitting perfectly.large has to much space for the medium plates and it will shift in you, though the slack is manageable

    FCPC v5 base multicam

    Posted by Philip Vandygriff on 29th Apr 2021

    Nice product. Looks very well constructed and shipment was very quick. Hard to give an adequate review since every attachment is out of stock continually and the email alerts for “in stock” attachments faired no better. Look forward to being able to deploy with the kit when items become available to allow it.

    Love This Thing!

    Posted by Thomas Kotta on 2nd Mar 2021

    I've owned several plate carriers in the past. I even owned a one of the early slicksters. Th FCPC tops them all by far! Very comfortable carrier and easy to adjust. I really like how Ferro designed the plate pockets, they're slightly stretchy and there's no chance hook and loop on the closure flap will shift. 10/10 Buy this carrier!

    I love it, its exactly what I wanted in a pc, only problem so far is I accidentally ordered a large. If you're running standard 10x12 plates make sure you get the medium size carrier.
