Perfect for even smaller guys

You're probably tired of the "tacticool" gear queer reviews on so many carriers, and the "weekend warrior" operator BS that purveys so many tactical gear sites. If so, this carrier is for you. I bought this because it's the minimum package, with maximum quality, and it's simple. It looked perfect to fit smaller frame guys (I'm 5'8", 140 lbs).. and it does! Sits nice and high, straps are comfortable, stitching is rock-solid, hook-and-loop is abundant and it goes on and off nice and easy. I have AR500 curved plates (10x12, with spalling coating - avoid frag!) and they fit perfect, no swaying or bouncing. It'll fit three standard magazine pouches up front. Has a well-constructed drag handle. I took out the side waist strap - the cumberbund is enough to fit snug. This is all you need. Don't spent 4 digits when you can spend under $200. Works better than the plate carriers the Army / Marines issue.
Best of the best

I shopped around for a plate carrier for well over a year. I looked at every brand and option available to the civilian market and I even looked at several used military carriers. When I finally made a commitment and ordered the Banshee I was pleasantly surprised and extremely satisfied with the quality of the product and the attention to details from front to back and side to side. I have since added several accessories that fit the carrier perfectly. I was also surprised to find how versatile and flexible the carrier can be for different body sizes and shapes, I have adjusted the carrier for larger framed individuals all the way down to petite with a perfect fit every time.

I am a swiss best-selling author and prepper, web site here: I do train a lot for when the SHTF and after training and trying many different kinds of tactical vests (Blackhawk, Condor, Clawgear, OPS), I must say that the BANSHEE is the best. Strong, well made, easy to pull on and off, just the right size, light-weight but sturdy..... also I use it with Level IV ceramic plates, and while they are quite large, they fit perfectly and they do not move. really a must! I will advertise it on my Facebook and blogs!
Great carrier...even for my wife

Over the years I've used different peaces of gear but it's rare to find something that actually lends it's self to the shooters needs rathen than just preforming one job. I have been wearing this PC for just over 2 months now in training alone and I'm simply blown away by it's level of comfort, the mobility it offers you, the space in which you are able to mount almost aything you might think you would need for an op, heavy grade construction. Hottest day at the range was 102 and I wore this thing for 9 hours , no chafing, no discomfort at all ! I carry 6 AR mags, 3 pistol mags, 1 white smoke, an IFAK, a pocket knife, multi tool, chem lights, flash light, front/back 4 A SAPI plates. I have worn it crawling in the mud, repelling, standing kneeling and prone, hand to hand training, group runs, shallow river crossing, endurance marches, vehicle ops, etc, . It has not failed me yet.
