Airsoft to us encompasses all styles of play and all styles of loadout, and as Nige likes to say “If it’s in Airsoft, it’s in Airsoft Action” so as much as we look to a lot of “real world” gear, sometimes something airsoft-specific comes along that just puts a big old grin on our faces, and the new ALPHA PLATE CARRIERS from VALKEN have most certainly done that!

Available in black or tan, and with three different “piratical and punishing” designs, the Valken Alpha Laser Cut Plate Carrier is a minimalist design. It has with laser cut MOLLE attachment points located on the front and back, as well as on the shoulder straps. They are made from high durable nylon fabric, and include soft foam “dummy plate” inserts in the front and rear plate compartments. The Alpha comes with adjustable side straps, and a unique printed design on the back, and it also has lightweight adjustable shoulder straps with integrated radio and hydration tube shoulder guides.

VALKEN recommend using their Multi-Rifle Magazine pouch to increase your tactical load capacity, and we’re pleased to tell you that they’ve backed up the new carrier with a versatile range of pouches that will let you configure the ALPHA just the way you like it!

As well as being something that genuinely makes us smile, the Alpha and accompanying pouches are REALLY keenly priced so that they are accessible to everyone, even those on a budget!

Available from your local VALKEN stockist soon, we’re looking forward to seeing these “in game” in the near future!
