Agilite has been upping its plate carrier game each year and their most recent model the K-Zero seems to keep that trend going. The K-Zero is compatible with First Spears Tubes which is incredible as they are a fantastic option compared to velcro cummerbund.
They have this to say about the K-Zero
The K-Zero Plate Carrier is the most comfortable low-profile plate carrier on the market. It’s the only plate carrier designed directly with both Israeli and US Special forces to fix all of the comfort and functionality issues with modern plate carriers.
Over the last decade the desire to make plate carriers lower profile has made them more and more uncomfortable. The K-Zero is just as low profile but built to be significantly more comfortable whether run completely slick, or fully up-armored and worn for entire days.
The Agilite proprietary V design spreads the weight over 8 different suspension points so there are zero hot spots. Strategically placed low profile closed cell padding gives you an unprecedented amount of comfort, without adding bulk or interfering with your stockweld.
The K-Zero comes with a one-size fits all low profile cummerbund, so you can guarantee a perfect fit and even adjust it by yourself on the fly while wearing it.
It is incredibly versatile. In the front it allows you to switch between either velcro flaps or quick release buckles depending on your mission set. It has both internal and external mounting options and stretch that doesn’t compromise any real estate on your rear plate bag.
For even heavier loads, the K-Zero is compatible with the Agilite Warfighter™ Cummerbund or any other hook and loop based cummerbund.
On other plate carriers, cable management is an afterthought at best. On the K-Zero it has been designed into every area of it from the start. It comes with an included cable management kit. This gives you complete versatility and the ability to set up your cables, ptts and hydration tubes exactly how you’d like them.
The K-Zero gives you the type of advantages that can only be gathered from experience in the highest levels of combat in an area of the world that still conducts operations every single night. Whether you are defending your country at the tip of the spear, defending your community or defending your home the K-Zero will give you an unparalleled edge.
It looks like a ton of time and effort was put into this design to make it comfortable, low profile, and functional. One of our minions currently has a K-Zero and wears plates for a living and is thoroughly impressed so hopefully more on this Plate Carrier later from him. In the meantime head on over to Agilites site and check it out.
