    The Shellback tactical banshee elite 3.0 lightweight armor system with level III LON-III-P plates is an awesome combo and I would highly recommend this plate carrier to anyone who is looking for a light and extremely comfortable plate carrier that comes with all the bells and whistles and is high quality. The plates are extremely light at 3.5 pounds and they also fit perfectly in the Banshee 3.0 elite and make the whole system so much lighter than the military issued plates and plate carriers that I used in the army. Also this plate carrier is loaded with features like the top front zipper bag which can hold a lot of stuff like your cell phone, pen and paper and gloves etc. Also the laser cut Molle makes it easy to set up your kit with whatever attachments you want and ensures they will fit precisely and easily. Also it comes with 6 magazines pockets right out the box and also the quick release cummerbund buckles to help quickly don and doff the plate carrier easily. The rear and front shoulder pads are extremely comfortable and get more comfortable as you add more weight. This system is also made in the USA and comes with a lifetime warranty. What more could you want. Well it also comes in great colors and all their attachments were easy to get in the same color so you don’t have to mix and match or hope that a certain color comes back in stock. You also can add a water bladder or a backpack which I added the Haley strategic 2.0 flatpack which works great and attached easily to the back of the plate carrier. Also it comes rear extending drag which is futuristic IMO.
