    I was told by a friend to look into Shellback. I have no regrets it’s an amazing product!

    Pros: Easy to put on and take off. Perfect fit for the 10X12 plates with no excess fabric. Compact for what it is and easy to carry. Cons: The shock cord on the magazines can get in the way.

    Holds up to regular use

    Posted by Marque on Apr 20th 2023

    I have had this carrier for just over a year. In that time I have used it in many SRT deployments and training days every other week. In this role it has held up much better than anticipated given the price. I am a big "module" guy so the fact that it comes with a carry bag is a massive value for me and helps to protect the carrier from the occasional tossing about. The carry bag has been sun-bleached a bit from sitting in the back of my work tahoe, but the carrier itself still looks almost brand new. I bought it due to the price and needing something asap and I feel like I got way more value than I had anticipated! All in all this is a fantastic minimalist carrier! I do plan on replacing it however with a different Shellback carrier that offers a cummerbund to assist in the relocation of my radio/cleanup of my comms and allow me to run some side armor inserts.

    Defender 2.0 Active Shooter

    Posted by John Massey on Mar 14th 2023

    100% satisfied for what I was looking for. Light, easy, durable, value pricing and bonus it looks good too. I’m 6’0 210lbs and this works for me, this vest has perfected simplicity. Shoulder straps adjust length with Velcro like a cqb belt and the wrap around should pad (also Velcro) holds your adjustment tight so no worries there. Waist adjusts easy, I pull them loose before taking them off, then tighten once I put on. Maybe hard to keep waist length static for putting on/taking off, depending on you arm/shoulder mobility, reaching back for stubby/cinched down strap to connect to receiving end. I was an 0311 and got my car in Helmand, so have used gear before, this was half the price of another one I was looking at that was for sale through a US /Ohio made CrossFit gear supplier website, I did get their 10lb plate pair and they fit well in this (I’m in NY or would have gotten 8lb armor plates fml), the green color vest looks great. Feels solid, worn it every day since with cast iron plates. For my purposes, using this for training mostly, until I leave NY, this vvest purchase makes me smile. I only wish this vest was listed on websites like the one I mentioned earlier, would have cut my search to a fraction of the time. I found shellback through govx, then the defender later through the shellback website.

    I tend to be a minimalist when it comes to plate carriers as I value maneuverability over excessive weight. This carrier is exactly what I've been looking for. I've tried a few stealth carriers and they work fine, but this one is perfect for a grab-and-go carrier for your vehicle, as a backup to your main, or even as your main carrier if you want to keep it light. The shoulder pads are comfortable and not bulky, and the clips are pretty stout and seem to stay secure even with movement. I pair it with a gun belt, or a molle vest if I want to carry more, and I can wear a light jacket over it and it barely prints. Perfect for someone who may need some light protection in cooler climates. Throw some level IV plates in there and you're ready to rock. I did remove the tourniquet pouch and threw an extra mag in there. It does not secure with a cord like the other two but holds well through friction. I also tend to like the kangaroo pouch system over an external pouch.

    Plate Carrier

    Posted by Ronald Palmer on Dec 12th 2022

    I like it so far, I didn't put 5 stars yet because I don't have plates as of yet, but once I get some and make sure it fits, and retains them well, I'll be happy to rate it higher. It fits well, no issues, I do wish it had an option between the tourniquet holder and a 3rd mag pouch but you can remove the holder and put a mag in its stead, however it isn't tight or held in, and just sits inside the empty spot. 4/5 (for now)

    First shellback- Defender

    Posted by Julian on Dec 10th 2022

    First time getting a plate carrier from these guys, not disappointed. It’s very comfortable and slim. Not as bulky as my other carrier. Definitely getting another one from them soon.
