This is the first plate carrier I have purchased and let me tell you I’m extremely satisfied with it! Amazing quality and fits great!!! I highly suggest buying with shellback tactical!
Talked to Ken initially, made great recommendations for what plates I had and carrier for my wife. Great quality. So good I ordered 4 more for my farm. Only place that had plates in stock during CV. Plates look very good. Thank You
Lightweight, secure, and versatile. If you're an average to smaller individual, you'll need to adjust the shoulder straps all the way down, but with the removable shoulder padding, it's easy to do. Plates are easy to install, and everything is just built sturdy on this carrier. The only issue I had was the built in mag pouches with the cummerbund, since I can only reach the front pouches on either side while wearing. A minor detail honestly, and a phenomenal product regardless.
All around this is a great carrier for the price. Very sturdy stitching, very simple and straightforward to insert the plates, AR mag pockets are very secure, one of the easiest carriers to adjust that I've had experience with. Fits me very well @ 6'0" 220lb's. From order to receipt to 1 week. Would definitely recommend, and purchase again.
Purchased for the 2020 Covid-19 Bugaloo. Got her all swagged out with Esstac pouches, North American Rescue medical, and of course, fucking P mags. Source Hydration 2L bladder freaking inbound from the Holy Land. Staying strapped so I don't get clapped. Send it!
High quality stitching and materials Very impressed with overall fit and finish A lot of small options that really make the difference Zipper admin pouch 6 mag slots with retention out of the box Comfortable to wear Would definitely recommend to anyone looking for a high quality Designed for Duty carrier
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.
