We are happy to announce our new S&J Hardware plate carrier.
Like all of our product, a lot of thought and time has gone into this project.
We have been work on this project on and off for 3+ years.
Working with other people in the textile industry and other Gear makers both In Canada, USA and the UK, has turned into along battle with trying to get contractors to do what we asked.
Lack of understanding and inability to make a product that meet our very high standard has put this project on hold many times.
That all said this last 6 months, we have been working with company local to us, that understands, what perfection is, and understands that many peoples lives will depend on this product being perfect.
Many of the people involved in this project are life long armed force members, and many of the staff are married to armed forces members.
Our new Plate carrier is a combined effort from people both in the Police, Mil, Army, SOF and security contractors.
We have taken the very best ideas from 10 different plate carriers, combine with the ideas we have and T&E from our
Police, Mil, Army, SOF and security contractors.
