Here is a press release of the Salamandra plate carrier which is just being released to the public. Project Gecko is offering seminars for military training and MilSim events.
Our PC Salamandra comes with a ready to go configuration. Instead of buying a ton of different pouches – we got them all ready for you – including a backpack- making your tactical purchase smarter, more efficient & effective.
A picture is worth a thousand words:
Technical information :
– Weight: 1.68kg
– Main material: Cordura D1000
– Inner material: 3D netting for maximum airflow
– Unique structure for comfort and great freedom of movement for back and arms
What I personally like in the design of this plate carrier, and other Israeli plate carrier designs, is the fact that the buckles and any other adjustment parts do not have a direct contact with the user’s body. They also don ́t get in the way of other equipment such as backpack straps, COM’s, etc. and allow the shoulder straps to take a perfect shape around the users shoulder, and not some bulky default kind of a shape. This is often called the ‘turtle’ cage – you can imagine why.
Plates & modularity
The first SALAMANDRA prototype was designed for the Israeli ‘Karmon’ ceramic plates. Due to a smart design which looks like two wings, you can enter a SAPI plate and the vest would still accept it and keep it in its proper place, preventing the plate from moving around (requires proper user adjustment).
This SALAMANDRA PC comes with a unique shape design which was originally designed after a dedicated research and field exprience. We took many problems that the end user exprienced, and and we developed a solution. This plate carrier offers you perfect freedom of movement, yet without compromising safety.
