PIG Armor Kit Bag (AKB)
You depend on your Personal Protective Body Armor every time you don it… armor that costs hundreds if not thousands of dollars… and when it comes off, it goes into a flimsy duffel bag. Does this sound familiar?
Now you can carry your quality armor in a quality carrier that is designed specifically for it. The PIG AKB (Armor Kit Bag) protects your expensive investment, and carries it in a compact package that is easy to maneuver and handle. From a simple Plate Carrier, to a full IOTV Armor package, the AKB carries your armor in its intended upright orientation.
The foundation of the AKB is a fully-encased bucket of 1/4” foam that provides drop and shock protection for your plates and kit. The AKB has enough room to allow your belt kit to sit nicely over the top of your armor. On one interior wall, a helmet stirrup holds your MICH, FAST, or similar helmet in the proper location to allow it to nestle in the head notch of your armor. The exterior walls feature an ID window for a name card and three utility pockets on one side, and a full-width stash pocket on the other- large enough to stow your snivel gear and a plethora of additional kit.
The bottom corners of the stash pocket feature hidden folds that allow access and stowage of metal rings for PIG Mk-1 Shoulder Straps (sold separately), allowing full-on backpack carriage. Once installed, the Mk-1 Shoulder Straps can be stowed out of the way without fully uninstalling them by releasing the side release buckles, pulling in the bottom tabs back through the hidden folds, and reconnecting the straps inside the stash pocket.
- Fully-enclosed foam bucket construction for shock protection.
- Durable yet lightweight 500D Cordura exterior.

- 1” webbing handles wrap around the entire bag for added strength.

I have had this bag for about three years now, it still looks and preforms as brand new. I also have the shoulder straps making it a backpack. I work in a plain clothes assignment, to I carry my body armor and some other equipment in this bag. I carry my armor and other items to and from my vehicle daily. I really like how the bag/backpack is discrete. This bag is sturdy and rugged. As others have mentioned, the padded bottom/base of the bag keeps my armor and carrier (with a few pouches on the carrier) upright in the bag. I can easily pull my armor/carrier out, and just as easily return my armor/carrier to the bag with easy. If you need to discretely transport/transfer body armor/PC, and other accessories regularly, I recommend this bag highly. I also highly recommend the back pack straps, they are very durable, and make carrying the bag easier. Like all SKD products, this bag (shoulder straps) are excellent quality.
Everything's awesome on this thing, from the zippers to the foam "bucket" keeping the armor in place. The only issue I've run into so far is that I've stacked so much stuff onto my PIG PC that it only barely fits. If PIG were to produce a bigger one for a PIG that would win a Blue Ribbon at the State Fair, I'd buy it in a second. Until then, this one works just fine.
I'm using this to transport my active shooter kit back and forth between my POV and patrol vehicle. On patrol, I seatbelt it in behind me and leave it open with the plate carrier and helmet exposed for rapid deployment; very easy! My POV is an SUV that I share with my wife and the bag makes it easy for her to get my kit out when she needs the room in the back. Only using for a couple weeks, but have a feeling it will definitely hold up for years to come.
Purchased to hold vest/helmet and secure them during the daily POV to patrol car shuffle. Two years later, still happy. As a bomb tech, armor goes everywhere with me for callouts, and all of the extra equipment and pouches stay right where they are supposed to. No discernable wear on my bag after the abuse I put it through.
It is a good quality bag for a good price. It keeps everything safe and secure. Shipping was fast and SKD kept good communication throughout the process. I have already recommended this to my co-workers. Keep up the good work!
It's a great bag that I use for my pig plate carrier and Kevlar helmet, which I transfer from personal vehicle to my patrol vehicle on a daily basis! Plenty of storage compartments for spare magazines! Semper Fi
This kit bag is perfect, the size is great for a quick grab and go loadout. With my OCD it allows me to organize my Plate Carrier specific loadout easily and avoid the heavy overweight gym type bags that I've used in the past. The bag stands upright on its own even when loaded with my LBT medium plate carrier and also with my OpsCore Ballistic Helmet. There is enough room to add more gear inside if you choose to do so.
After carrying my kit in a 14 dollar Wal-Mart duffle for years it was time to upgrade. The bag is well made as is everything I have ever bought from SKD, there is good padding on the bottom and sides. Overall a good value when you consider most armor and plate carrier combos are easily in the 500-1000 range.
I was looking for a bag to hold my plate carrier and protect it from damage when it rides in my trunk. The PIG armor kit bag fits the bill perfectly. Plenty of room for my plate carrier (and a helmet if I had one) and room for extra gear as well. Just what I needed. Shipping was, as usual, very prompt and I got the bag in two days.
