This is my 1st PC and I have ZERO regrets about going with the Rampage. The Rampage checked off all of the boxes I wanted for my 1st PC and it was a great price so I pulled the trigger on it. It arrived rather quickly and seems to be well built. I have been wearing it around the house and yard to break it in and nothing has started started to fray or wear.
I would purchase the Rampage again without a 2nd thought.
Thank you Shellback Tactical!!!

I had bought 2 Shellback Prevail plates # 1155 and I wanted a carrier to match. This is my first carrier and I love it. I had done a ton of research on so many types of armor and plate carriers prior to buying and glad I spent my money at Shellback. The carrier is rock solid and I’m pretty happy it has the M4/AR & pistol mag pouches on the cumberbun. I’m 6”3 and 225 lbs and I like how it fits me just right. Not too small and not too oversized and bulky. I ordered the multicam and it looks so good. Definitely will be ordering again once they get the Banshee 2.0 in stock.

So, like most of us who do extensive research on "Important" products to us Patriots, I wanted to get the best bang for my buck. I searched many different products. A few of those suggested from my SF buddy as well. After almost a year of searching I landed at shellback. I went ahead and chose the Rampage because of its light weight and durability and mobility while on the run. I'm a shorter guy, as stated, and I didn't want a plate carrier that felt like a life jacket like the IBA and IOTV. My 10X12 swimmers cut plates fit very well. I'd suggest getting trauma pads to fill the added space in the plate pouch. Also I'd suggest getting the shellback side plate pouches for the side plates, get the trauma pads for those as well to fill that space void. I dont play airsoft and yes, I do larp around the house from time to time (annoys the wife) and definately holds up during war games. All in all this plate carrier fits great for a 5'6" guy like me.

For the price, it's hard to find a plate carrier of this quality anywhere else. The fit and feel is great; I did have to do some minor adjusting for my fit (6'0", 200 lb.), but for taller/stockier folks, this carrier would probably fit great right out of the box. Integrated mag pouches are a great bonus and save you money on buying pouches if you like to run them on the side. I find that the furthest back pouch, however, takes a good bit of twisting to reach and may prove to be unusable for some individuals. Additionally, if you run the Ranger Plates on PMAGs, you might want to reconsider placing those mags in these pouches due to the pointed ends. Shoulder pads are super comfy, and the entire carrier just hugs the body well. Plenty of room for patches/tapes and accessories. If you're looking for a lightweight, well built, and budget plate carrier, this is by far the best I've owned for the price. It's no Banshee, but it's fantastic in its own right.

I am quite the bargain finder myself but when I saw this at such a good price point I had to have it. The placard compatibility, solid construction, stitching, and comfort are second to none for me. While not the lightest carrier, if you're a big guy like myself (6'6"/240lbs) you won't mind the little extra weight for a durable carrier that it more than capable for those of us that have to carry a full house loudout. The fitment is very nice and not too bulky.

When I purchased this carrier I was looking for a smaller plate carrier to replace a condor modular plate carrier. I liked the Modular plate carrier enough it was just to big and bulky. The rampage is smaller and sets up very easily, with my condor i was having issues with the plate height in the front and back being higher or lower than I liked and the rampage seems to be the fix for it. I do like the ability to have the option to carry mags underneath my arms on either side of the cumber bun. Each side holds three mags but I found that two is about all I can actually reach comfortably without contorting my body. I followed that up with a double stack in the front for another four magazines. Carrying eight on my body and one in the gun is exactly what i carried in the military so it works for me. Also in between each rifle magazine there is a divider for pistol magazines. I didn't use this for pistol mags but i do have chem lights, a flashlight, and some VF17 in there for marking, or i could carry some pen flares in these as well. The neck straps on the plate are decent, they are wide but they do sit closer to my neck then they did on the condor, and the front plate molle panel is shorter as well and more combat cut. This was one thing i really did not like about the condor. The condor always felt odd trying to shoulder a rifle because i seemed to struggkle to find the natural pocket of my shoulder with the butt stock sliding off of the plate carrier which covered where i had instinctively been trained over the years to shoulder the rifle. With the Rampage I have had no issues shouldering comfortably. All and all this carrier isn't the high dollar plate carriers that you see on youtube that some folks are running, but if you are looking for a carrier that is decent quality, and comes close enough for the price this may be the carrier for you.

I received my Rampage carrier last week and I am extremely happy with it all the way around. The built in mag pouches on the cummerbund are definitely a plus. It's extremely well constructed. I'm 5'11" 200lbs and with it adjusted almost all the way as tight as it can go, it has a snug fit and sits right where I need it to. I'm currently using Bulletproof-IT's level IV plates with it and am running Safe Life Defense's 6"x8" level 3a soft plates on the sides. For the cost and construction of this carrier, there's definitely no need to cheap out and buy a condor or lower quality carrier. I highly recommend buying this carrier.

First plate carrier, cannot say that I am disappointed. This is a first rate carrier for my intended purposes which is training, primarily. Home defense secondary. I am not in any way disappointed with the quality, fit, or finish of the carrier. I'd say that it is quite comfortable. I haven't finished adding pouches and whatnot to the carrier, but so far it's good to go.

I went from the condor mopc to this carrier and the difference is amazing. Much less bulk, comfortable with the weight of 10x12 rma level 4 plates which fit very snug. For a rough idea on fit, I am 5'10" about 190lbs and I have the adjustments at pretty much the bottom end you can tighten it, I could easily add some weight. The rear two mag pouches on each side are a bit difficult to access, I run the two front ones along with a placard added to the front. Not shown in the photo is the mole on the inside of the cummerbund, giving room for side plate pouches to be added or whatever else. Definitely well worth the money, save yourself some headache and skip the condor and similar level gear, you wont be disappointed.
