Tactical Assault Gear Vanguard Armor Carriera with Standard Cummerbund
SKU #: TAG-Vanguard
TAG’s® Vanguard plate carrier sets the standard in the industry for what a plate should be. The vanguard is a light weight plate carrier that works with any set of hard armor plates and soft armor backers. SAPI, ESAPI, XSAPI, standalone level 4, swimmer cut and shooter cut armor plates all fit into the Vanguard. The triple magazine front panel is sewn into the carrier and will fit 30 round 5.56mm, AK47, and 7.62 x 51 magazines. You will never need to change out your magazine pouches again when using different weapon platforms. Another unique feature the Vanguard has that separates it from all other plate carriers is the ability to swap out the cummerbund systems. TAG® has a licensing agreement with Crye Precision® for the use of the Skeletal™ cummerbund. You can choose from our standard cummerbund or choose the Skeletal™, for the same price. The cummerbunds are fully adjustable and swapping them out is easy with our G Hook™ attachment system. The Vanguard has built in padded and fully adjustable shoulder straps. The tops of the shoulder straps have both nylon webbing and elastic webbing for mounting and routing tourniquets, hydration tubes, radio antennas, handsets, comm wires, V Lites®, and strobe lights. Spacer mesh is used on the inside of the Vanguard for increased breathability and comfort. Matching Velcro® loop covers the upper front and back portions of the carrier for any size Velcro® placards. Strong drag handle that Velcro’s down and out of the way when not in use. Berry Compliant, made in the USA, lifetime warranty, 500 denier Invista® Cordura® nylon.

I am about to order the TAG vanguard plate carrier in Multicam and would like to know how the fit is compared to the counterpart Shellback Banshee plate carrier? How quick are you currently shipping out items?
We'll extend this question to our customers and see if they have feedback regarding this. As far as shipping times, we can ship as fast as Next Day Air, if needed. You will be given shipping options and prices at the checkout page of our website.

The fit is extremely comfortable. Just the right amount of padding. The only thing I would ask for is an elastic inner cummerbund. To help keep the pc from bouncing while running. Also, getting rid of the huge stupid magazine pouch in the front would help because regular 5.56 mags bounce around in there. I also feel as though the hook and loop on the cummerbund is of poor quality.

What is the length of the cummerbund?
The cummerbund comes in two pieces and each one attaches to the small of the back in behind the carrier and they come to about 20.5" in length on each side. That's the total length from mid back to end of the velcro for each side. So in total you are looking at an overall length of about 41" - They are attached by elastic on each side so you could adjust them to be longer or shorter by a few inches.

Does the standard cummerbund hold plates and if so what size plates
No, the standard cummerbund does not hold plates. But it does have molle webbing on the inside as well as the outside, so you can very easily attach a side plate pouch like the one located here - http://www.lapolicegear.com/tag-m68spp1-side-plate-carry.html

If the item is ordered with the skeletal cummerbund, does that allow for side plates?
We show that it does not allow for side plates.

Yes, but you would have to purchase the Crye Precision side plate pouches that were made to be compatible with this rig.
