PIG Brigandine Plate Carrier Rear Panel
**Please note that you must select front and back panel options for the complete PC.
If you're seeing a lot of close-fit carriers with minimalist design these days, say hello to ground-zero: The PIG BRIG. Due to its light weight and compact size, the BRIG has become my go to carrier that doesn't limit me due to its scalability. Fully optioned it still weighs less than a lot of other "full-featured" plate carriers without giving up modular real estate. As long as you have one of the plates we offer the BRIG for, you can enjoy the custom fit and benefit from the minimal design. View More SKD Staff Picks

"Brigandine" is the word for medieval armor consisting of armor plates attached to a cloth shirt. The PIG Brigandine is today's version of just that- a low profile way to carry just your plates directly over your shirt or soft body armor.
Pig Brig Plate Carrier Features:
- Unlike some of other low profile plate carriers, the PIG BRIG is designed with the straps attaching at a lower point than the top of the plate (like the PIG PC), allowing for a higher plate placement than it's competitors.
- The integral elastic straps allow for maximum comfort and expansion during heavy activity, and allows for the use of PIG Elastic Cummerbund Sleeves for additional MOLLE Load Carriage or Side Plate options.
- The front and back plate assemblies on the PIG BRIG are ordered separately, allowing you to mix and match different size front and back plates.
***Note: The Brig is designed for specific plates to achieve a shoehorn fit. We receive daily inquiries about Brig compatibility with numerous different plate brands and models. We ask that you contact the manufacturer of the plate you own to find out if their plate is the exact size and shape of one of the plates the Brig was designed for. In short, we do not know if your plate will fit the Brig, we only know that the BRIG will fit the plate it was designed for. Currently the BRIG is available for SKD Armor 10" x 12" Stand Alone Plate , ESAPI (4 sizes), the 10" x 12" Tap Gamma and the Velocity Systems 10" x 12" Plate . Other plate shapes will be offered in the future.
The FRONT is available here. Browse the [SYSTEMA] category to see the various components you can add to this product family!
As with all PIG tactical nylon products, the Brig is Made in the USA.

Bought the ESAPI Medium size to use with the Hesco L210 plates. Works great and this is the perfect low-profile carrier to wear on its own or under a rig (I got the slick version without MOLLE). A tremendous bargain for the price, and great customer service too.
