The SMAC 3 is the latest iteration in Platatac’s best-known plate carrier series. Originally designed and manufactured in response to a SOCOMD requirement, this philosophy has remained throughout the different versions with key improvements each time. The SMAC 3 brings a more modular approach to the SMAC system, with adaptability and flexibility as the cornerstone of the system.

The MOLLE version offers the user a multitude of ways to create the perfect system. From the top, there is a zippered admin pocket large enough to fit essential admin items. On top of this pocket is a field of Molle, the top 80mm are faced with colour matched Velcro for any identification, unit, flag or IFF patches. This molle field is perfect to attach any administration pocket you like if you require extra space or for mounting an End User Device. Two vertically oriented MOLLE rows on the sides are for mounting the included QASM buckles or G-Hooks. The front placard contains a velcro-lined kangaroo pocket. This is perfect for expanding admin storage with an ASAD Zippered Pocket insert, or by increasing load carriage with an ASAD elastic Rifle Mag insert. In front of the kangaroo pocket is another PALS field made from colour matched velcro, enabling the operator to run a range of mag placards or pouches.

The rear of the SMAC offers the same level of customisation as the front. A velcro-secured drag handle at the top is designed to be easily deployed without causing any snagging issues. A large PALS field allows the mounting of a number of hydration or assault packs. Colour matched velcro on the top portion of this PALS field is perfect for ID, unit, flag or IFF patches.

An internal pocket for MOE tools and devices is hidden behind the field. Inside are 2 rows of molle for the mounting of any specialty pouches. At the top, there is a small Velcro strap perfect for securing Bolt Cutters. A pocket at the base of the SMAC is designed to hold larger MOE tools. When not in use it is easily tucked back inside.

The SMAC is lined with air mesh which helps to evenly regulate body heat. Internally the plates are secured in place with an adjustable velcro strap, as well as having a velcro flap along the entire base.
