Grey Ghost Gear Minimalist Plate Carrier

The Grey Ghost Minimalist Plate Carrier is designed based on the mentality of "lighter is better", with a minimum of frills, but a ton of function.

Designed to carry 10x12 hard plates.

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.

The front of the carrier also features a discrete stash pocket that makes perfect storage for a variety of small items that might be needed in a hurry, such as maps, medevac cards or even a knife. Made for one size to fit most body types, the shoulder straps are adjustable and integrated elastic side straps keep a snug fit while still allowing for unexpected dynamic motion. Constructed from Mil-Spec materials to stand up to hard use, the inside faces of the carrier are lined with Air Mesh for comfort and breathability and the plate pockets are lined with LiteLok® pack cloth for abrasion resistance. Available in Black, Coyote Brown, and MultiCam®.

Please Note: Soft armor and plates not included.

    Just what the doctor ordered

    Easily one of the best buys in a long time. Lots of reviews out there about how itÕs not got enough features. But itÕs not what this is about here. Duh, itÕs called the Minimalist. If you are looking for a product that fits all possible scenarios, this isn't it. What this is, is a simple platform for basic needs or requirements that don't make you look like you are setting it up to meet Armageddon. It's comfortable, fully adjustable and best of all, cool (temperature-wise) as compared to others I have tried.

    The carrier I should have ordered first

    Posted by Hecho NM on 4th Nov 2017

    I had a Grey Ghost MPC before this, but didnÕt care for the lack of side molle attachments. The JPC filled my needs of being minimalist but still having side attachment capabilities. The internal mag pouches sealed the deal. Using AR 500 10x12 shooters cut lightweight level 3 plates. When I installed them they seemed a little loose in the large JPC and I worried they would move too much when worn, but after running a 5 hour range course the first weekend I had this, IÕm perfectly happy with it.

    Amazing build

    Amazing and super lightweight and simple. Surprisingly comfortable. I bought lvl IV steel plates for it and even with a shooters cut they still poke out the open corners. I put some camo fabric tape on the corners of the plates and it still looks OK that way. Those open corners are my only complaint, otherwise fantastic pc

    Arrived and took it out of the package to inspect it and can say the stitching is excellent the quality of the material is good too I intend to use it as a summer time training plate carrier with minimalist gear.

    Great minimalist plate carrier!

    Posted by josh brenneman on 1st Aug 2017

    This is a simple no thrills plate carrier. The open top and bottom are intended so that the plate carrier can accept a wide variety of plates. I am 6' 180 lbs and I had to tighten the side straps almost all the way down, this might be something to keep in mind if your are a smaller person. It goes well with Grey Ghost Gears 2 l hydration carrier and a minimal amount of pouches on the front. This isn't going to be a heavy load system, but for a slick of minimalist load out it will work great.

    Grey Ghost Gear

    Posted by Evan Farley on 11th May 2017

    The carrier is average and leaning towards meh. I'm not a fan of plastic D rings that hold the shoulder harness to the carrier or lack of any shoulder padding. I noted the same plastic D rings on the Grey Ghost Stealth Operator Pack as well as the zipper cover binding when trying to access the gun compartment. That's a pretty big flaw. These guys get rave reviews from many of the internet "run and gun" folks however I don't feel they rate as high as some may believe. I'm sure they are a stand up company and a great group of people however I think I've learned that my expectations are little higher. As always your mileage may vary.

    Just What I Needed

    Posted by Chad Howser on 7th May 2017

    Tough material that was put together very well. I'm a patrolman and I wanted to put together an active shooter/high risk rig with rifle plates in it I could quickly don over my uniform. I choose the Grey Ghost Minimalist Plate Carrier and the EGL Monkey Stomper pouch. That with POLICE panels made for an awesome, light weight, no hassle set up, that's very quick to throw over my uniform. The ONE pouch holds 2 pistol mags, 2 rifle mags, 2 packs of quick clot, 2 rolls of gauze, a roll of duct tape, a folding buck knife, a Leatherman Tool, and the bungee on the pouch also holds my tourniquet tight against the side. The carrier is perfect, it holds my plates in rock solid with no movement. There is no added, useless material to drive up the weight or price on this carrier. A great combo for any patrolman to have on hand. SKD No BS gear, always great quality at reasonable prices.
