    Banshee Elite 3.0

    Posted by Riley on Nov 24th 2021

    Ordered the Banshee Elite 3.0. Shipping was quick as always from Shellback. Build quality is excellent. Fit is good. I own two carriers from Shellback now and will probably order their low profile carrier next. I highly recommend all of their products!

    Banshee Elite

    Posted by Rick on Nov 10th 2021

    Recently purchased this vest and have been throughly impressed. Vest fits and feels great. At time of order the add-on front mollee placard was out of stock so i was not able to order it, vest came with clips for this add-on but were easily removable so no problem at all there. The “integrated magazine pouches,” on the other hand are the biggest flaw I’ve seen. I was very apprehensive of them when ordering but had already planned on not using them. They are too tight to fit standard steel or pmag ar magazines. Also drawing the magazine from this pouch for a rapid reload is far from ergonomic and effective. I actually removed all the elastic retaining bands and am much happier with the fit, feel, look, and performance. Lastly, the vests come very stiff but break in rather quickly. I would definitely recommend this platform.

    Almost perfect

    Posted by Scott on Aug 6th 2021

    By far the best plate carrier I have encountered. I adore the integrated front storage but the side ammo pouches I only have one complaint; the mag MOLLE. The mags get caught on those trying to insert them while wearing it. I have to load the mags in with it off otherwise it’s a bit of a mess and if they offered an option for no MOLLE on the cummerbund that would solve the issue pretty easily. I also wouldn’t mind a 2X to make the fix a little less tight, being almost 7 feet tall didn’t leave much room even after adjustment.
