    Has anyone ever purchased or know of someone who has purchased the 'level 2' (this has no reference to the protection offered) plate carrier from Dave and Richard at Urban Patriot and can vouch for the quality? Their website is urbanpatriot.co.za they used to be active on the forum but were last online in 2017, they also offered firearms training pre-covid.

    Please note this is NOT the Urban Patriot plate carrier that Dave Sheer sell, it is a completely different product.

    I'm looking at the pictures and videos that they posted to their WhatsApp group of Urban Patriot "Level 2" carrier. It's the D-Tactical QRB.

    @ PeacePfficer, I looked at Dave Sheers PC and I was a little ticked at what I had spent on my K19 from the same order as MJC.

    Obviously I cannot comment on whether the K19 will outlast UP, at least the K19 is battle tested gear. My biggest concern is having a drag handle snap if I'm injured!

    As far as build and comfort I thought the UP was a carbon copy. The clips I saw were exactly, and I mean exactly the same.

    I would be seriously tempted to go the UP route if could get a do over and then put it through the test. If it breaks under testing take it back.

    If it holds up then you've got a piece of kit copied from a great design that you know you can trust because you couldn't break it and you have an extra R2k for more mags and such.

    Thanks for the comparison. Kinda confirms my thoughts on the UP/QRB's build quality. The clips - and I'm open to be corrected - are the universally standard Swift clips. So any manufacturer can use them to ensure comparability with a wide range of plate carriers that conform to the standard. I'm saying standard but not sure if there is in fact s published standard like there is with Molle.
