There are a ton of custom tactical shops in the Hampton Roads area in Virginia Beach. One of these is a company called Vel-Tye. They started off as a tailor shop repairing the local teams plate carriers and molle and using the feedback they got from their customers developed their own plate carrier. The Hugger is an extremely light weight close fitting plate carrier that is made to fit the operators body type. The carrier is custom made to fit soft armor interceptor, spear, balic and full size plates including a side plate. It is made to accept a chest rig Vel-tye's version is called the LOWVIS that comes in three different versions.Operators load out 13 mags and a pistol, EOD load out which is 3/4's the size and the LE loadout which is 3/4's size and is held on with velcro....These are totally legit used by the Seals in Iraq and Afganistan and are made of the best quality materials and have a lifetime warranty.
