DFNDR QRC 2.0 – Quick Release Carrier


The DFNDR QRC 2.0 offers superior mobility and tactical versatility while significantly updating materials, features, consistency, and aesthetics from the original Flagship model.


The DFNDR QRC 2.0 is an enhanced version of the DFNDR flagship Quick-Release Carrier (QRC) plate carrier. Critical design elements that offer superior mobility and tactical versatility remain while significantly updating materials, features, consistency, and aesthetics.

Utilizing laser-cut Squadron Laminate instead of traditional Cordura/webbing, the outer structure of both front and rear plate bags is one piece of material featuring laser-cut MOLLE. Therefore reducing weight, bulk, and failure points without compromising strength.

The DFNDR QRC 2.0 is 12% lighter than the original QRC. The shoulder strap design redirects and improves load carriage while reducing obstruction when shouldering a rifle buttstock. The included shoulder strap covers feature laser-cut slots for cable and hose management for comms and hydration.

Both shoulders and cummerbund sides are size-adjustable and disengage via the ITW Nexus quick-release hardware. This quick-release design is simple, fast, and strong, making it extremely easy to don or doff the carrier in almost any situation. The included drag handle attaches through dedicated slots in the rear plate bag and, if desired, is taken off for an even lower profile.

The QRC 2.0 is modular, adaptable, and designed for all-day comfort in even the most demanding environments.
