I really like that Shellback makes a XL carrier but I wish it had some sort of straps to secure 10X12 plates.
Carrier fits me well and is comfortable however my 10 x 12” plates shift around inside the plate pocket horribly Which gives the vest when worn a sloppy appearance.
Granted, when it matters Looks don’t matter.
The Molly seems to be well made, I have numerous attachments and everything is secured properly and securely.

I love everything about the SF Plate Carrier, it is literally everything you need. The 3 mag pouch built into it is great, mags go in and out easily. So much room to molle whatever else you want on it. I ordered a small and it fits perfectly! I’m 5’9” so I definitely needed the small.

So i just ordered this carrier thinking it could be adjusted to my size....
Unfortunately not the case.
For small to normal framed men this carrier would be Perfect for a average guy.
great materials,good chest size coverage,Cummerbund can be adjusted.
Again if you're a smaller framed person.
Once again if you're a huge man...look for something else that will fit.
XL means XL no more no less.and other sizes are accurate,I would need this to be at least 4xL for it to be a suited fit.
Shellback makes great carriers,but not for huge men.

It’s a good carrier but it’s very hard to put it on when you have mags in the front pouch. You are not able to lift the flap up enough to get it where you want it

Chose this carrier for features that closely resembles our issue carriers, and is lighter than our issued plate carrier. I love the construction and over all quality. I like how it accepts soft and hard armor without need for additional pouches. My only wish would be that the front pouch would have wrapped around to secure underneath the vest towards the body. Instead it stops at front. As Velcro wears out, it will need to be replaced to keep ammo pouch from flopping around. I will buy from shellback again.
