Apparently made in the USA., hard to tell though, there’s no labeling to confirm as such. Sent back a Condor to see how this one looks, it’s a little heavier but that’s okay. Definitely feels a bit mor robust and better tuned. Cumber adjustment is way simple and less hassle to adjust and not necessary do to the fact it’s fitted with removable side straps. Keeping it. Cheers
My second Shellback and the quality is exceptional . The shellback shoulder pads I purchased for on my first PC are awesome . I received a second set recently are they are Made in China and slip around in the shoulders and won’t stay in place. Proudly flying the made in China tags bold and tall right on top as well. Plate carrier is a quality product you won’t be disappointed. The shoulder pads not so much
I like this plate carrier, it fits good and I like how wide the shoulder pads are. The wide opening makes it easy/comfortable to put on. Good amount of real estate for looping on the essentials for patrol work and just enough hook and loop for ID patches. Only thing I dislike is that there isn't hook and loop inside for the option to put in your own padding. Construction is solid and easy to adjust to your frame. Overall, I like this carrier. I don’t think you’ll be disappointed.
Actually , this is my second Banshee plate carrier. Great value for the dollar. Stitching is solid. Easy to adjust to my frame. Once your velcroed in with the cummerbund, the fit is comfortable . The addition of the side buckles if you do not want the cummerbund is a great addition that adds flexibility to your kit. My co workers saw the Banshee and are impressed with it. A few already placed orders. Thank you for a great product and the sticker and patch were a great bit of swag.
First, with supply chains and shipping seemingly messy everywhere I ordered this on Monday and received it on Thursday. That’s a pretty impressive turnaround. I try to only buy USA made products so this checked the box. I have not gotten a chance to put through paces but initial impression is extremely high quality. Fit is really good. I’m 6’1, 195 lbs and it sits just right. Thanks guys, really appreciate you and the quality you provide.
Plate carrier arrived on time, easy to get it adjusted to proper fit. Quality workmanship and materials. Only issue I have is the shoulder straps tend to slip loose. Already a bit problematic with just mags and a bladder, and I’m sure it could be worse with 8lbs of plates added to that. Other than that, it’s a great product for its price range.
Just received my Banshee Plate Carrier from UPS, and got it all dialed in. It is an excellent plate carrier and is made extremely well. It was also pretty easy to set up with personal fit adjustments, High Speed Taco Pouches, etc. I look forward to using it for work, and would highly recommend the Banshee to anyone looking for a solid plate carrier that is made here in the US.
I am new to plate carriers so I blundered about for a bit trying to figure out adjustments. I like the placement of features but haven't used in the field yet.
Just like I said in my headline this plate carrier is one tuff SOB, it's very well made the stiching is great plenty of molle for all your pouches it's a mid- size plate carrier so they take mid size plates. High speed low drag, only thing I would love is if they would include the shoulder pads for the price, that would be awsome. The first Banshee I bought was the coyote tan I loved it so much I decided to buy it in black. I told my brother that when one of my plate carriers starte falling apart I would buy a new one in ranger green we started laughing he said you'll be waiting a long time buddy. And it's so cool that it's made in the USA keep up the good work I'm looking forward to purchasing my new Ranger Green Banshee soon.
