When armor coverage is your primary concern but weight is still a factor, the Testudo Lite™ Gen 2.0 armor plate carrier has you covered.

Named after the Roman army’s defensive formation, the Testudo Lite is a slimmed down version of our Testudo, but still comes ready to provide you with the maximum coverage you expect from our Testudo, right out of the box.

The Testudo Lite still accommodates both 10”x12” or 11”x14” body armor of any type. Its fully-adjustable cummerbund and shoulder straps are still versatile enough for large or medium body types, and there is still plenty of PALS webbing for attaching your MOLLE-compatible accessories. 

Even so, the Testudo Lite weighs 1 pound less than it’s “full-featured” namesake, by eliminating the bulk and weight of the padding and 3D mesh, the Velcro on the PALS webbing, and removing the side waist straps and buckles (meaning it can only be used with the cummerbund). 

All inclusive

The Testudo is our flagship and 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. 


  • Durable: constructed with quality nylon and bar tacks
  • All Inclusive: complete, and ready out of the box
  • Comfortable: padded shoulder pads
  • Customizable: Built-in cummerbund with side plate pouches
  • Versatile: designed for optimal mobility 
  • Optimal fit: for body types medium to 2XL

Base bundle comes with
1 x AR500 Armor® Testudo Lite™ Modular Plate Carrier
2 x Level III 10"x12" Flat, Base Coat**

    Very comfortable and well made. One size fits all. Offers plenty of area for add-ons. Highly recommended for range and home defense use.
