Extremely satisfied with this plate carrier. The quality is greater than I expected and it fits very nicely. 10/10 from me!
After I'd bought the shoulder pads that Shellback makes (and I loved them) I figured it was time I consider changing what the loadout of my Carrier would be, but I didn't have hundreds of spare dollars to spend. Enter the Shield. After considering my options, I chose this one for the more modular Molle setup. I was not disappointed when it arrived. My plates fit snugly inside the pockets and there was room for my cushions behind them besides (although I did have to make some adjustments to those.) It's incredibly comfortable to wear around and although I haven't made use of it in an operational environment, I have no doubt it would serve me well. Where it sits on your torso feels good and keeps your important bits covered. Great buy, especially for the price. I could wear this thing all day.
First off, the carrier is very well made. The stitching is good and the material is solid. The color is great as well. The laser cuts are precise and not the type to sag under weight from full mag pouches. The only down side to this carrier is the cummerbund. It’s super awkward and I had to loosen up the bungee cord all the way for it to reach all the way around and not have the massive hook n loop panels showing from behind the belly flap. I do NOT have a large gut in any way at all so I don’t know why it’s designed that way. To get the vest to fit properly, one of the cummerbund sides has to be pulled out showing the bungee cord in the back. Strange fitting cummerbund over all. I may just order a better fitting one from UARM to supplement this great looking vest.
The Shellback Tactical Shield 2.0 was out of the box far better than expected for the price it's retailing for. This was my first purchase from this company and it won't be my last, from product, shipping to customer service all around squared away. Fits nice, not bulky, adjustable for different carry and uses definitely something I'll be putting to use. Oh and Amanda is the bis ❤ Thank you Shellback Tactical team
