GeneralThe RICAS plate carrier from Warrior Assault System is a lightweight and modular vest, with two large soft- and hard-ballistic inserts on the front and back and small, stand-alone protective pockets on the side.
Compared to the RAPTOR or DCS from WARRIOR, the RICAS is not so bulky and offers more freedom of movement due to the rubber bands at the sides.
