Trident Gear started as a group of friends playing Airsoft at our local site. From there our team developed and we brought with us load-outs and gear-sets which we tested over the years. While testing all the gear-sets, we found one thing to be missing. With many of us having served in various military organisations we were used to wearing kit consisting of full body amour setups, which we did not have on the Airsoft field despite us all owning various plate carriers. We decided that to complete our load-outs we needed plats. The team decided to develop a number of plate prototypes using a variety of materials until they came across the current designs, which can be tailored to fit any plate carrier with a choice of weights depending on the desired setup.
Trident Gear was then formed to bring these plates to the masses. With cheap foam plates not really standing up to the desired requirements and other imitation plates costing upwards of £100, we saw our plates as the missing link in the chain.
We hope you enjoy the feel of a weighted and filled plate carrier as much as we do.
