Armor Express SAU Plate Carrier
  • Armor Express SAU Plate Carrier

    The SAU design team worked with end users, conducted multiple field tests, and continued to make modifications until the SAU was built right. These modifications resulted in a streamlined, lightweight, modular, tactical plate carrier that exceeds today’s criteria. The SAU is a flagship product for Armor Express and is one of our latest innovations in our tactical lineup.
