    Great Carrier

    Posted by Jack Moody on Jan 12th 2024

    Our department loves the all-in-one kit for active shooter protection. Room for extra mags and a tourniquet are easy to use. The bag makes it very handy to move and keeps all your gear in one place. Great product for the price point.

    This vest is absolutely versatile! Not only is it lighter than what I’ve carried in the past but it is much more comfortable as well and able to sustain the rough usage I need it for.

    Plate carrier

    Posted by Parker on May 18th 2023

    The design is very sleek and lightweight my only gripe is the straps can be annoying. For me there's a lot of length that's unsecured and moves around nothing ridiculous just that. Overall it's amazing for the price

    Active shooter package

    Posted by Kevin on Aug 9th 2022

    My only issue is the mag slots doesn’t really work out for p mags but other than that everything else is awesome.

    Worth every single penny.

    Recently purchased a Defender 2.0 Active shooter kit. The carrier & plates are exactly as described, fit & finish is superior. My order was also shipped quickly & arrived in perfect condition! I definitely recommend Shellback Tactical for anyone who wants quality products without a long wait! Thanks so much Shellback! Can't wait to make my next purchase!

    Best there is

    Posted by Robert Davis on Feb 4th 2021

    I ordered this on a Wednesday and got it that Friday. Plates are curved which other companies charge extra for. Carrier is really nice and well made. Came with a carrying bag, patch and decal which was a nice surprise. And they’re from my home state of SC. Oh and being a shellback myself it was just a plus to order from here!

    I wanted to order 2 level IV carrier combos for my wife and myself. I called because I have a 56 inch chest and had questions about fit for myself. I am looking for coverage not light weight. These are great people to deal with and once we figured out this would not fit me well, they actually recommended another company that has larger plates and carriers. I did in fact, order the Defender 2.0 for my wife and it was here in less than a week. I was a police officer for 27 years and have a lot of experience with vests including hard armor. This stuff appears to be very well made and we are extremely happy with it. I would definitely buy again.
