    Very Pleased!

    Posted by Mike K on Mar 22nd 2021

    First off, the product appears to be physically flawless with both a clean appearance and the specific ID markings clearly on display. In addition, I received these plates in less than a week after my order had been made. This time expedience factor was clutch as several competitors that I had researched prior to my Shellback purchase appeared to be either backordered or needed to make them. The weight is manageable and I realize this brand does offer lighter plates, however, for my purposes and price point I could not be happier for what I bought. Kudos!

    Thick and Heavy!

    Posted by JJ Bernsdorff on Feb 1st 2021

    I bought the Banshee Elite 2.0 and had to wait on the plates. Finally got these plates. They arrived last Friday and are a bit heavy! I'm glad I got the hanger too! Don't know how well they work as I haven't been shot, but if that happens and I make it, I'll update my review!

    Seems Legit

    Posted by Christian on Dec 3rd 2020

    Bought this Monday, showed up Thursday. Fast shipping. Has the official manufacturing and NIJ information labeled on the back of the plates so they seem legitimate. My only gripe is the picture shows a logo, my plates were solid black with no logo. I verified I didn't get the wrong plates. Not that big a deal since they go in the plate carrier unseen anyway, that's the only reason I gave 4 stars.

    Good product so far

    Fortunately haven't been shot at so can't review that part of it. I'm using this as a back plate in my carrier and it fits well and is comfortable to wear all day.

    Fast shipping

    Posted by Scott on Oct 21st 2020

    Shipping was fast but since the plate hasn't been shot I can't give a real review. If Shellback wants to send me another plate to test I'll record it with my 4k video camera and upload a youtube review. I've noticed that Shell back doesn't have any youtube review videos.

    Excellent Product, Stellar Staff, Super Fast Shipping.

    Posted by Neil on Oct 7th 2020

    Stellar staff will always be posted by me on all reviews. The protection level you receive of a multi shot level IV plate, the weight of each plate, single curved and not flat, and the price they are sold for. This is a cheap and yet very bearable plate for any carrier. The plate is a very solid feeling plate and does feel like it could take a beating in many various situations.

    I bought two of these plates and I could not be more satisfied. My order was shipped promptly and they arrived well packaged. 100% satisfied here!
