Purchased this carrier for work and all I can say is wow! Fit is great, it’s comfortable to wear during my shift and has just enough space for everything I need. If you’re in the market for more of a slick carrier this is the one. You won’t be disappointed.

I watched a Mr. Guns and Gear video on armor for dummies and saw him talk about shellback plate carriers. They looked comfortable, roomy, and well made. Since purchasing this plate carrier I can confirm all three of those. This carrier easily fits level 4 ceramic plates from LAPG which is what I have riding in it right now. This carrier has tons of MOLLE mounting points to add on mag pouches, coms equipment, water systems etc. Would I buy this again? In a heartbeat.

With the world unfolds before our eyes... I knew it was time to order plates and a plate carrier.
Luckily I stumbled across this fine American company located in South Carolina. Just a hop, skip and a jump from my home, Jacksonville, Florida.
Very pleased with my Patriot Plate Carrier and I've had some friends follow my lead. So far 2 have just received theirs while a few more are waiting on their order.

This is my 2nd plate carrier from Shellback , 1st was an Active Shooter and I kept it in my car when not using it .. its perfect for summer time use outdoors . After retiring I started working at an indoor gun range and had several compliments on it., Now I am employed there full time (my choice) and upgraded to a better vest as on several occasions novices have pointed handguns and rifles in the wrong directions -- AT ME !!! Thanks for making this vest in RED as required in my job performance

Very pleased with product quality. Fits commercial 10x12 plates and sapi sizes well.
Would have given this a 5 star rating, except:
There is no molle at all near the loop panel. The product as delivered will NOT accept placards or swiftclips of any type because there is no place to mount the upper clips.
Please Shellback, include the molle next to the loop panel so the customer can upgrade without having to purchase a whole new carrier.

Built to last, high end plate carrier without all the extra fancy components.
