The K19 is the ultimate modern plate carrier. Designed, tested and battle-proven in Israel and behind enemy lines with some of the IDF's most elite units. The K19 has numerous subtle but revolutionary features that no other plate carrier has.

The K19 Plate Carrier just got even BETTER! 


  • Comes with extra buckles so that you can completely remove and swap out the shoulder buckles. Either keep two ruck buckles for quick release, have one side with a super slim low profile shoulder buckle, or switch out both sides for nice shoulder to shoulder movement when switching sides.
  • All side buckles that attach the AMAP III are completely removable. If you decide that you do not want to run a backpack, you wont have any buckles dangling around.
  • Side ruck buckles now have a slit. This allows for easy removal for the addition of a velcro cummerbund over the front or if you want to switch them with something else

*Please refer to first video above*

When it comes to the cummerbund, we've thought of everything. Many modern plate carriers now employ quick release mechanisms but they always come at the expense of not being able to adjust the fit easily.

The K19 employs our Egress™ Quick-release system and proprietary Fast-Adjust™ Cummerbund that can be adjusted and fine-tuned in real time, by the wearer.

Getting the perfect fit can depend on your specific mission loadout, what you're wearing underneath (which can change mid-mission), or even on how much you've eaten for lunch. We know that the ability to adjust it yourself, on the fly, is critical in order to avoid unnecessary fatigue and compromised combat awareness.

The K19 has a one-size-fits-all cummerbund and multi-size plate bags solving the need to make complicated and risky sizing choices when buying. You know it will always fit you or members of your team regardless of your loadout or mission set. This is also important for procurement professionals who can be sure it will fit all their guys (or girls) well.

The fast-adjust cummerbund also has a built-in stretch element which allows the vest to be pulled in nice and tight so it doesn't bounce when you run, but that gives you that inch or so of stretch needed when dropping to a knee so the carrier doesn't squash their torso.

The latest version of the K19 is also placard-compatible, with both upper attachment points and a new laser-cut loop overlay.

This new layer gives you the best of all worlds. It allows you to either add velcro-backed placards instantly, or use the mil spec, bartacked molle underneath to attach regular molle pouches.

Unlike other carriers, the shoulder area quick-release buckles are set way back so they don't interfere with your rifle stock and yet are easily accessible.

When it comes to comfort, The K19 shares many of the comfort features of the combat-proven Agilite K5, which is considered to be the most comfortable plate carrier on the market.
Such comfort features include generous fusion-foam shoulder padding for extreme comfort even during prolonged use. Anyone who's spent time in the Military knows that even the shortest of missions can turn into several day ops. Comfort is not a luxury, it's a necessity to stay alert and not distracted in hostile environments where complacency can cost you your life.

One of the secrets to the K19’s comfort level is that the shoulder straps create a proprietary "V" shape to center mass which spreads weight over maximum surface area and relieves pressure points.

The rear of the K19 plate bags have a triple layer of low profile fusion foam to remain comfortable even when using the K19 with hard steel or ceramic armor plates. Steel or ceramic plates often have hard corners and edges that can dig in to your torso when using regular plate carriers but the K19 has inherent padding to prevent this from happening.

The K19 is also Agilite K-Series compatible, meaning that it has ability to attach the AMAP III Assault pack directly to it in seconds. No threading MOLLE, no hassle.

In the rear, the cummerbund has numerous attachment points for the mil-spec G hooks, allowing a perfect fit for all, from the largest to smallest person, without making the plate carrier unnecessarily large or prohibitively small.

The K19 has gone from the front lines of Israeli Special Forces to being one of the top-selling plate carriers in the USA.

It has traveled many miles and has crossed borders into some of the most dangerous places in the world in order to bring you one of the most detailed and thought out plate carriers on earth.

  • Is the K19 better than the K5?
    The K19 not a replacement for the K5, it's a cocky, good looking younger brother, better at certain things and faster and designed to give you options to best meet your mission set. The K5 is unbeaten on comfort and simplicity, proven over millions of hours of use downrange, around the world, in some of modern history's toughest Military and Law Enforcement missions and deployments.

    They are equals, it just depends on your personal preference or mission set. One’s a “Harley” , the other a racing bike, both equally powerful.

  • Do the Rear G hooks interfere with the rear MOLLE?
    No. The insert points for the G Hooks are in addition to the MOLLE?

  • Can you mount pouches on the Fast-Adjust™ cummerbund?
    Yes, not just on the traditional MOLLE section but along the whole length of the cummerbund.

    I Love My K-19

    Overall this carrier has been an impressive piece of equipment! The straps are comfortable and balance the weight well. I’m currently running the Pincer Placard with the Admin Pouch and double pistol mag pouches! I love this carrier and all of its versatility to modify the layout and maximize its effectiveness!

    Doing well so far

    After putting it through about half of my planned testing I can say for sure that it is holding up to its name and value quite well. It is comfortable and quite modular so have no real complaints about quality. The only gripe I have is the quick release buckles it comes with are a bit annoying and i believe the first spear tubes should have also come with it instead, but with those also being modular they will soon be swapped. So far I give it a 8.5/10.

    Best I've Worn

    I did a lot of research before purchasing my next plate carrier, and Im glad I went with this one as it is incredibly versatile and comfortable. It did take some time to finally get the fit adjustments right since this carrier is more complex than it may seem with multiple straps for each shoulder, but once it was right it almost feels like im not wearing anything. The weight is perfectly balanced, over quality is superb and it is completely customizable and compatible with anything else, any other brands gear out there. You will not pigeon toe yourself into only Agilites branded equipment, anything and everything will work with this. The great part is that Agilite also makes their stuff to work with other brands in reverse ad well. I just added the Warfighter cummerbund with side plate pouches, a front drop pouch, front placard and will be adding a back panel for the Sapi warer bag. Agilite is my new go to for everything kit involved!!! Also, both HCC Tactical AND Agilite both have great customer service!!!

    So comfortable compared to other carriers, the QD is a must for my carriers from now on and versatile with the hook and loop and more capabilities
