    Glows like a light under NODs

    Posted by Luke on Aug 9th 2023

    It’s a solid PC for most people But under NVGs it reflects IR. The laser cut material is terrible with near IR capabilities. For most people, that’s no problem, but if you ever want to use it at night it’s an issue.

    High quality and Comfortable

    Posted by Troy on Jan 7th 2023

    I’ve been using this PC for close to a year now and have to say it’s the best part of waking up. Easy to take on and off. High quality material with no fraying . Contours of the design make the pc sit as it should. Not to mention, it’s comfortable to wear all day. Hope they keep evolving this carrier and release a Banshee 4.0 .

    Great product

    One of the vests I've owned. Bought the L/XL and I'm probably a mid build guy and it fits really well.

    Outstanding Carrier

    Posted by Steven Muirhead on Aug 5th 2022

    It’s nice not to have the cummerbund dangling at your knee while donning armor. Rapid donning and doffing. Best on the market.

    Quick release tabs and cummerbund

    Posted by Ryder Butler on Jun 22nd 2022

    This plate carrier is extremely comfortable and very breathable, it’s made from sturdy materials and built to last. My only gripes are that the nylon tabs on the quick release make more noise than I thought they would, easily fixed with electrical tape but a nuisance at first. The other gripe is the cummerbund can’t accept side plates right form the get go, If there was an option to get plate holders instead of mag holders they would probably make it 5 stars

    Elite 3.0 Plate Carrier

    Posted by Zach on Mar 30th 2022

    Wonderfully crafted plate carrier! It has comfortable shoulder padding and the quick release is super convenient and works well. My only gripe is that the plastic pull tabs for the quick release sway and hit against the plastic on the tabs. This creates unnecessary noise. When I was running the plastic kept clicking together when the release would swing and hit the plastic holding the carrier. Making the pull away with out the round plastic piece would raise my rating of 4 stars to 5.

    Compared to the Banshee 1, this plate carrier is an improvement in every possible way. Laser cut MOLLE keeps the vest streamlined without sacrificing durability or versatility. Hydration bladder ouch in the back is a great addition. I personally do not care for the magazine pouches on the cumberbund, but for those who like/need that kind of thing it is still a great addition. Shoulder straps are significantly better than the Banshee 1; wider, more padding, easier to adjust. Lastly the quick disconnect is awesome. No more fumbling with the Velcro to attach the cumberbund, no more worrying if my flap bag will fall off due to excessive wear and tear, and it is a "set it and forget it" type of deal. Once again, 200% satisfied with this plate carrier.
