The BANSHEE 2.0 ELITE Plate Carrier Gen2 (AKA Banshee 2.0). This new unique advanced plate carrier was created from feedback and input from customers, military and law enforcement on what they wanted to see in a plate carrier. Unparalleled comfort, mobility and design. The shoulders on the Banshee Elite are fully adjustable and padded, slightly wider than the original banshee the shoulders lay flatter on your body and have a hidden quick release buckle. The shoulders front and back have Hypalon material with 4 slits that is pliable allowing for easy access to the buckles. The bottoms of the Hypalon shoulders are not sewn down allowing for easier routing of comm wires or hydration lines. New Update - The shoulders include a set of our Banshee Ultimate shoulder pads with all Elite carriers.
The front and back of the Banshee feature 6 rows of PALS webbing and pile tape for flags and other identifiers. The interior of the front and back carrier on the body side are also comfort padded with 3D mesh sewn in an airflow pattern allowing for heat disbursement. Rifle plates are loaded from the bottom front/back and secured with a hook/loop closure. The drag handle on the Banshee Elite is sewn through and secured down with hook and loop.
Update - The front of the BANSHEE ELITE is feature packed. On the top of the front of the carrier is an Integrated Admin Pouch now with a zippered gusseted pocket to secure items. This admin area allows for storage of small items, tools, batteries, chem lights etc. On the front of the carrier on each side are 2 vertical nylon strips to accommodate QASM buckles to accommodate chest rigs. The front flat closure stops at the bottom and does not run under allowing for fast easy donning and doffing.
The Banshee Elite plate carrier comes standard with the Banshee Elite Cummerbund that is removable and fully adjustable. The cummerbund has 6 interior pockets (3 each side) that will accommodate .223 5.56 AR style magazines. The pockets have adjustable bungee pull tabs. Exterior and interior of cummerbund have 3 rows of PALS webbing to accept side plates or other pouches. The pockets can also fit a Motorola type XTS type radio.
Update - The cummerbund was lengthened slightly to give you better adjustability especially when used with magazines in the cummerbund.
Staying with successful concept of the original Banshee this carrier is one size fits most. Also standard is a secondary nylon strap system with quick release buckles (also removable) if the cummerbund is not needed. The front pocket of the carrier has a hook and loop kangaroo pocket to allow for accessories and magazines. Accommodates Banshee 2-mag pouch.
Update - The back of the carrier in a separate pocket from the plate pocket opens and can accept a 2 liter hydration bladder. Integrated option to add hydration.
USA Made-Full Berry Compliant - Backed by our Lifetime Warranty.

I was a little hesitant at first worried about the quality of the carrier but it is stitched well. What really sells me is the pockets and pouches in the front and back also the side magazine slots, with that being said I can only find use for the front two. It is almost impossible for me to get to the back ones effectively but doesn’t render them useless, a team member stacked up behind you may find them useful. The room for plates is a little tight but still fits fine. The carrier covers the chest well without sacrificing shoulder room for your weapon of choice and the padding is so comfortable it’s like your being hugged by a cloud compared to some other carriers. For the money one of the best versatile plate carriers on the market in my opinion.

Great carrier. Has pockets for everything and is extremely adjustable. The shoulders look a little big and poofy but the extra padding makes it incredibly comfortable. As other reviews have stated it is not a quick release system as stated. Unless you wanted to quick release from the shoulders and have he carrier fall down your legs like a mini skirt, which most people probably don’t. Other than that I can’t find anything to complain about. Well worth the price.

Purchased the vest a few months ago.
No, you cannot "quick release" the entire rig at once. You'd need a pull system for the cummerbund and a way to release the buckles on your sides all at once like some other plate carriers.
Other than that, it's a sturdy, comfortable, and highly modular rig. But if you're looking for a pull-tab quick release system, this isn't for you.

great plate carrier, it is comfortable to wear. my only complaint is that it does not fit right to my body if I use the built in mag holders. But the over all function of the PC is amazing

To start, the build quality of the Banshee 2.0 is 2nd to none. It can take a beating in rough terrain when being actively used and you should not see any wear and tear right away. This plate carrier is by far the most comfortable one that I have worn. The integrated magazine pouches on the cummerbund, admin pouch, and back pouch are very useful and do not compromise mobility or placement of your own additional pouches. The size of the plate carrier does not seem too small on my build, at 6' 2" tall and 200 lbs like a lot of plate carriers I have tried on. In short, buy this plate carrier, and you will never go back to your old ones!

Received several of these plate carriers and each was perfectly made. The quality is first class. Layout and design are very functional. The carriers accepted both hard plates and soft armor backers without issue.
