Last year, DefenseReview (DR) reported on the very interesting Devcore Guardian Pack quick-deploy hard armor plate carrier pack (backpack) prototype, after it was demonstrated for us in the Venetian Hotel Las Vegas during SHOT Show 2018. At that time, the developmental prototype was called the DOA (Deploy On Attach) Pack. Well, cut to SHOT Show 2019, and we just got to see the brand new production version of The Guardian Pack, and it looks really good. The design and development dudes at Devcore have really dialed The Guardian Pack plate carrier pack in.
DR likes pretty much everything about the Devcore Guardian Pack: the visual aesthetics of the pack, the size, the hard body armor front panel deployment speed, the front panel pistol mount access and draw speed, and the way and speed at which the rear pack-mounted SBR (Short Barreled Rifle), submachine gun (SMG) or PDW (Personal Defense Weapon) shorter than 14″ (14 inches) can be carried and drawn from the bottom of the pack. It’s pretty slick. But, don’t take our word for it. Check out DR’s video below.
DR really digs this one. The Guardian Pack is just a really nice piece of gear for ultra-lo-pro/lo-vis (low-profile/low-visibility) military Special Operations Forces (SOF) missions in high-threat environment…and it wouldn’t look bad in a Bond movie, either. Defense Review thinks James Bond (007) would love it.
