Dynamic Assault Systems Hot Pursuit Plate Carrier G3 - SAPI Cut

Built for those who need a modular plate carrier that can be modified to fit the mission needs. This carrier takes some of the best features in the industry and puts them together in an off the shelf option that doesn't break the bank. 


  • Removable shoulder tubes, so the user can run dual tubes, dual fixed, or one tube one fixed shoulders
  • Back panel zippers that are compatible with Spiritus Systems zip on back panels. Other brands zip on panels may work, but this carrier was built to work with Spiritus Systems
  • 6/12™ laser cut platform
  • Tubes™ Rapid-Release Technology
  • Front / Back panels sized to fit MD SAPI/ESAPI/SPEAR or similar sized 10x12 Shooter Cut ballistic plates. Has built in stretch on the sides of the plate bags so stacking soft armor inserts can also fit. 
  • Updated front detachable buckles are compatible with many different brands of Swift Clip / G-Hook placard setups to include: Ferro Concepts, Haley Strategic, Spiritus Systems, RDR Gear, Velocity Systems, HRT Tactical, and others that offer similar setups. *For use with G-Hook placards the user will need to remove the field repairable ITW buckle and run the G-Hook through the strap for top placard retention. 
  • Built for department issue this vest also offers Velcro integrated into the lower abdomen area of the vest for use with placards, however, if your philosophy on your kit is like a Ronco cooker and you "set it and forget it" then you can still utilize all PALS / MOLLE compatible pouches with this vest and the integrated velcro loop has no negative effect on performance.  **If you run your vest this way, please remove the front placard clips, dont be "that person" that leaves them on as they dont add any value running your kit this way. 
  • This vest has two 4x9" velcro loop spots for identifier patches.
  • The rear of the vest incorporates an updated trifold design allowing easy access to the cummerbund sizing area allowing for micro adjustments. This allows the user to go from a heavy jacket for the early morning raids, to a combat shirt in the afternoon and quickly adjust your vest to fit properly. Likewise with the G3 updates the user can now run lashed cummerbunds as well as velcro hook backed cummerbunds. 
  • Low profile trifold padded shoulder straps give you the comfort you need without any unnecessary bulk. Easy to open and put on the carrier for a precise location fitment. 
  • Zippered admin pocket has been moved outside of the plate pocket to allow easier access and storage capabilities. No more issues with your stored items fighting for space with your plates. 
  • Laser cut cummerbund has dual built in elastic pockets for use with radios, spare magazines, etc.  The one closest to the front closure has an adjustable ride height to accommodate taller items without issues with clearances. If the users doesnt want to store anything in the elastic pouches then the shock cord retention can be removed and the elastic would go unnoticed to the user.
  • The cummerbund is soft armor compatible in standard 5" tall rectangular shapes, no more custom shape in which pigeonholes you into buying a certain brand of armor. Soft armor inserts can be supplied by us, or the user can purchase them from many other armor companies for various price points. 
  • Cummerbund has a built in stiffener throughout to help with dispersing the load of the vest.
  • Utilizes Raine Tactical Bridger Patent #10,314,355 cummerbund stiffener overtop of the front tube closure to allow one extra row of MOLLE for the user.  No more wasted space due to using a tube closure. 
  • Interior of the vest has (4) soft loop panels that allow for the use of the Hot Pursuit Plate Carrier Comfort Pads if user needs extra padding / heat mitigation. However, the use of the pads isnt needed and the vest can be used without them. 


Cummerbund size / torso sizing recommendations. (If using soft armor in the cummerbund make sure the armor buts up to the ballistic plates to prevent ballistic windows)

Medium: 32"-38"

Large: 35"-41" 

Extra Large: 38"-44"

2XL: 41"x47"

    This is my second Hot Pursuit carrier. I am on two different teams at work, one requires multicam, the other black. We are issued a KDH carrier which is junk. The Hot Pursuit is made by First Spear and the quality is exactly as you would expect. I have worn and now sold many of the other top brands and this one is my favorite. I would not hesitate to recommend this carrier to a friend or co-worker. Why are you still waiting? Go buy it now! You wont be disappointed.

    BLUF: If you are on the fence about this carrier, get off and buy it now.

    I was looking for a better carrier and I found it in the Hot Pursuit. It is bullet proof and of the quality you would expect having been made by First Spear. It fits my SAPI plates perfectly. The sewing is top notch, again what you would expect from FirstSpear. I bought multicam first and just bought a black one because I liked it so much.

    I have owned carriers from Crye(JPC 1 and 2), Velocity/Mayflower APC, Spiritus, Ferro Concepts and some lesser brands. The Hot Pursuit is by far my favorite.

    A word about LHA Gear customer service: they ship lightning fast. I have been emailing back and forth with them and they are quick to respond and above all else, they are great problem solvers and helped me get the gear I needed for work. I am hooked as a customer, keep up the great work!

    My background: Police Officer and Tactical Paramedic.

    Sold all of my old gear, consolidated, and bought this carrier. Very happy with it. My biggest need was to have a high quality carrier that works with my swift clip accessories, and this definitely does that.
