Plate Carriers

People often come to us with their designs for vests used by military, law enforcement, and emergency responders. These vests are built to be tough and keep people safe in dangerous situations. We're serious about making sure every vest is top-notch, so we put them through strict checks before they're used in the field. As a manufacturing partner, we start from scratch to create vests that meet our clients' needs. You get to pick from lots of different military-grade fabrics and designs. We can add things like adjustable straps, extra-strong stitching, and special webbing systems called MOLLE. Besides the regular pockets for holding plates, we can add more pockets, holsters, and loops to make the vests work for different jobs and missions. Whether you're after a quote for a military deal or you're making a whole new line of body armor for your own plates, we've got you covered. With 50 years of sewing experience, we know how to make plate carriers that get the job done right.

Emergency Response and Security

Less often Emergency responders and security personnel rely on body armor and plate carriers but the need in this market has been increasing over the last 5-10 years due to unfortunate incidents.


In the past, Fieldtex has been contracted to produce a line of plate carriers designed for municipal law enforcement personnel. The challenge of designing and manufacturing these carriers was not only to meet stringent safety and performance requirements but also to ensure they were low profile and concealable under the uniform. After several rounds of prototyping and field testing, the customer had a finished product that struck a perfect balance between protection, comfort, and functionality. Our facility boasts industrial sewing machines powerful enough to handle the heavy-duty materials plate carriers are made from, along with decades of experience in manufacturing to tackle projects like this one.
