    Sturdy And Comfortable

    Posted by Tyler on Mar 16th 2022

    I'm 5'9" and have a comfy weight of 185lbs. I've had this plate carrier for a few months now. It's been loaded down with about 60lbs worth of gear and ammo. Main usage has been training and patrol. None of the stitching has failed. The velcro seems to be holding up well in spite of repeated donning and doffings. It's about as easy to maneuver around in as any other plate carrier, though it needs to be noted I'm running mine without side plates. The shoulder pads are my favorite part. They have a lot of cushion and keep the straps from digging into my shoulders. This setup has been quite comfortable to wear for extended hours (6-8hrs). I do wish the webbing on the shoulders was more stiff so I could mount my radio mic and knife to it without them flopping around, but so far that is the only downside. I would highly recommend this carrier for anyone valuing long term comfort and durability.

    Banshee 2.0

    Posted by Matthew Dimmitt on Oct 6th 2021

    Very nice plate carrier! The quality is great! My plates are pretty light , but this carrier distributes the weight evenly, so even with heavier plates, this thing is very comfortable.

    Posted by Geoff Crews on Sep 21st 2021

    I switched from the 5.11 tactical to the banshee. I absolutely love the banshee! I love the integral zippered admin pouch, hydration pouch and kangaroo pouch. Allows me to setup my PC nice and tight

    Great Gear

    Posted by Tom on Apr 7th 2021

    I'm an old Grunt and new to all this gear. So in my research found Shellback Carriers to be highly recommended. I am not disappointed. They are great! I had a couple of issues, and questions, and Ken provided superb customer service. I highly recommend their gear.

    worth the money

    Posted by Richard Fleming on Apr 1st 2021

    First time buyer so I'm no expert but I did some research and this carrier kept coming up as one of the best. I bought the best plates I could and figured I better not skimp on the vest. This thing does not disappoint. Its just a quality piece of equipment. Well put together and comfortable enough you could wear it solely as a tac vest. Customer service was awesome and only took 3 days to ship. Don't go cheap. Spend the extra money on this vest. You will not be disappointed.

    Solid chioce

    Posted by Unknown on Feb 18th 2021

    The product seems well made. Adjustments for fit are simple and effective. I haven't used it in the field yet, so I can't comment on how well it will hold up.
