Ranger 500 G3

The U.S. Armor Ranger tactical outer carrier turns concealable body armor into high visibility ballistic protection for detectives, plainclothes officers and first responders. The Ranger tactical outer carrier is the most universal piece of equipment a department can own in this post-9/11 environment.

Front and rear compartments on the Ranger can be easily accessed to add your existing U.S. Armor ballistic panels of Level II & IIIA, turning the outer carrier into a high visibility tactical vest using front & rear ID panels.

Sizing & Customization


The Ranger 500 G3 Carrier is sized to fit your new or existing U.S. Armor concealable ballistic panels. When you purchase one of our carriers for your non U.S. Armor ballistic panels, we will make your new carrier to fit your existing panels based on measurements and ballistic panel tracings you provide for an additional fee. However we cannot guarantee the proper fit and proper positioning of the ballistic panels, since all manufactures have differences in their patterns and suspension systems. Our 60 day Fit Guarantee will not apply and any further modifications to your carrier will require an alteration fee.


Any Design variations from the standard Ranger 500 G3 carrier will require a nominal change of design fee. On orders for over 25 units this fee may be waved based on the amount of customization. Please note customization work will extend delivery time.
