Got it for my son which fits him nice and comfy. Material seems durable and stitching looks good. Added level 4 plates just in case.

Demo'd this product for its intended use-active threat/RTF response. It is simple and easy to don and doff and comes in a compact package compared to other offerings. I kept the loadout to a minimum. Took the mag holder and TQ holder out of the kangaroo pouch. In the kangaroo pouch I was able to put a set of chest seals, hemostatic gauze, and 4" pressure bandage. I secured a TQ and decompression needle to the outside molle. Anything more than that could be carried in an aid bag. Fit Hesco 4400 10x12 shooters cut plates perfectly. The fact that it comes with a bag is awesome.

This plate carrier looks awesome and adjusts easily. Seeing as it comes with the removable kangaroo pouch to carry to AR magazines you don't need additional crap hanging off your rig. The included carry bag makes for easy storage in a trunk without risking damage to your gear.

I got the active shooter plate carrier. It's constructed well. However I have multi curve plates and it was a bit tight putting it in the carrier. Other than that I haven't noticing anything worth mentioning.
.I've used it during a training session and it felt comfortable and not restrictive. Quick and easy to put on. .
As a side note: when I received the plate carrier, one of the plastic waist clip was broken. I contacted Shellback Tactical and I got a response quickly. They sent a new clip in two days. I have to acknowledge the great customer service and quick response to correct the problem.

As a Retired County Sheriffs Officer I offer these opinions This is my 2nd Plate Carrier purchased in the last 14months , and by far the most comfortable/easy to put on in a hurry . I'm a RSO at the local shooting range and wear the vest for 8hrs at a time . Very breathable and just as described . Ease of adjustments and the padded shoulder straps are a plus . There is ample room in the front pouch for medical supplies, Quick clot-TQ-and wound dressings. and extra mags.I highly recommend this carrier for use . Thanks Shellback Tactical for a great product . you now have a loyal customer .who will recommend your products to others who I work with .

This vest is one of the most comfortable plate carriers I ever owned. I carry AR500 armor level IV hard plates, front and back. The shoulders pads are very comfortable, I can wear my vest for 6 hours Straight and don’t feel the weight , also the Padded spacer mesh interior does keep you cool like they advertised. I would definitely purchase again from SHELLBACK TACTICAL.
Be safe out here.
