SEAL TEAM 10- PLATE CARRIER KIT
It is all started a year ago from the photo of SEAL TEAM 10 members prepairing for night patrol in Iraq Fallujah, this maybe a simple piece but this photo has catches many gear mania or collectors eyes, the first thing I notice last year was the LBT-6094A plate carrier and we also notice the plate carrier the SEAL operator at the righ side is wearing, at first we thought it was self modification of the PACA low vis bullet proof vest but we still has not even a clue about the vest the SEAL was wearing.
Here is also the next photo that SEAL operators is prepairing their gear for the night patrol, first time I saw the pic and try to analyze the special chest rig is infront of the plate carrier but yet it is all mystery for me and other collectors when the pic just came out from the net.
After few months on research and a good friend of mine told me about the vest but the vest company is real hard to deal with because the company’s phone number is on answering machine for 24/7 and they will only answer you when they are free, but this does not make me give up and I called, emailed and faxed almost every other day and now finally I got to receive few sets of this plate carrier set on my hand.
