AR500 Armor Testudo™ Gen 2 Plate Carrier

AR500 Armor Testudo™ Gen 2 Plate Carrier

*Please note due to high demand, lead times may range between 8-10 weeks.

 

When armor coverage is your primary concern, our all-inclusive Testudo™ Gen 2.0 plate carrier has you covered.

Named after the Roman army’s defensive formation, the Testudo provides you the maximum coverage of all our plate carriers, right out of the box.

The Testudo will accommodate 10”x12” or 11”x14” body armor of any type. Its fully-adjustable cummerbund and shoulder straps make the Testudo versatile enough for large or medium body types. Plenty of PALS webbing for attaching your MOLLE-compatible pouches, holsters, and accessories. The generous supply of Velcro -- covering all the PALS webbing -- offers superior versatility for placement of medical, moto, or other patches or gear.

All inclusive

As the flagship carrier, the Testudo has everything you need, right out of the box. The removable cummerbund sports integrated side-armor pockets, and the low-offset shoulder straps mean the rear plate pocket rides at the proper height. If you run plates smaller than 10”x12”, add the Adaptive Plate Insert and you’ve got everything from a lightweight run-and-gun setup, all the way to fully-kitted, maximum protection and load-bearing carrier. Just add armor and pouches (sold separately), and you're good to go!

Bulletproof Zone will ship orders as soon as possible. For example, if you purchase three items, they will be shipped to you based on lead time and availability. This way you get as much of your order as soon as possible, which means that your order may come in separate packages, especially if you order products from different manufacturers.

We will bear the shipping cost for products returned because of product defect, misrepresentation, or false description. Afterward, we will initiate a full reimbursement should you decline an offer to replace the item with the same item of equal value and assured quality.

Order Confirmation:

As soon as you place your order with Bulletproof Zone, you will receive an order confirmation e-mail. This means that your order has been logged in our system and your credit card has been pre-authorized for the purchase. Afterward, we contact our suppliers to confirm the availability of the product you are ordering for immediate shipment. If your item is on backorder or unavailable, we will cancel the pre-authorization and duly inform you via e-mail.

Order Shipment:

Orders are shipped within five business days from the date of your order unless specified otherwise on the product page. The product page will contain the most accurate information on shipping and lead times. You will receive an email containing the tracking information of your order after the order has been shipped to your location. If you do not receive tracking information from us within seven business days of the lead time specified on the product page, feel free to follow up with us at orders@bulletproofzone.com

Damages:

We take full responsibility for any obvious damage to your product caused by wrong packaging or delivering an already defective product. Please inspect the packaging of your item(s) when they arrive, if you notice any damage, you should document it when signing for delivery. If the item(s) contained in the package arrives damaged, please send photos to returns@bulletproofzone.com, and we will process an insurance claim on your behalf. 

Cancellations, Returns, & Refunds:

We back all our products with a customer satisfaction guarantee, so we created a fair cancellation policy. 

In most cases, all orders are final and cannot be canceled once the order has been processed. If the order is within the proper time frame, contact Bulletproof Zone. This policy will be reviewed on an individual basis. All sales are final on all closeout items.

Should you cancel an order because you placed the order in error or wish to return your order after delivery for any reason other than a product defect or misrepresentation, you are subject to an administration and restocking fee equal to 10% of your order with a minimum of $35, whether or not your order has shipped.

Bulletproof Clothing products from brands such as MC Armor, Israel Catalog, Masada Armor, BulletBlocker, Tread Armament, Talos Ballistics, Wonder Hoodie or others, are custom manufactured and therefore, all sales are final and cannot be canceled once the manufacturing process has begun or cannot be returned unless there is a product defect or misrepresentation.

Unless noted otherwise on the product description page, return requests must be made within 14 calendar days upon receipt of shipment. Gear must be unused and in original packaging. 

Though we offer “free shipping” on many of our items, it does not mean there is not an expense associated with the shipping. Shipping is factored into the cost. Should you return a product that was ordered by mistake, without defect, etc., you will be responsible for our original shipping cost(s) associated with the transaction. 

Should an item be returned because it was defective, misrepresented, not as described, etc., Bulletproof Zone will issue a full refund and will reimburse the customer for all shipping expenses associated with the return. However, the product must be returned via USPS flat-rate shipping in order to receive a shipping expense refund. Buyers must ensure all returned parcels receive delivery AND signature confirmation. Insurance is highly recommended as we cannot issue a refund for an item that we do not receive back should it get lost/damaged during transit.

Please allow 5-10 business days from the time the item is received to process a refund. Refunds will only be issued to the original credit card that you use when placing your order.

    Pretty good

    Just got this & started to put mag pouches on & getting squared away. Even with the plates installed it seems the weight is well disrupted. It’s going to take a little testing but so far I’m liking it.

    I am more than pleased with my purchase for 2 reasons. 1st... this rig is built like a tank. No skimping on the stitching OR hook & loop adjustment/closures ANYWHERE. And 2nd... customer support it tier one. I had an initial concern about the side plate pockets being too small. They promptly researched my concern only to find it was my overlooking the pockets are made with extensions to accommodate the larger plates. BOOM!... DONE! This is a great product and they are the best to do business with.
