    Level IV Armor, Great Price, Satisfied Customer

    Posted by Nate on Aug 8th 2020

    tldr; Great setup for the money invested. Can it be improved? Yes. Would I have gotten the Banshee 3.0 if I could have afforded it? Definitely. I've had this carrier and armor for less than a week and have not taken it to the field as of 08-08-20. I am 5'10" 180lbs - Properly fitting the armor requires the removal of the additional shoulder padding; your mileage may vary - The shoulder straps are made from a soft material and have slackened while LARPing around the house. I will see if webbed belt material is a suitable replacement -The quick buckles, at the shoulders, are underneath fabric. When changing out the soft shoulder straps I will try to relocate the buckles further up and then utilize the shoulder padding wraps, I am currently not using, to create an enclosed pad that houses the buckle and allows me to run wires/hydro underneath them.

    Nice gear, great price, fast shipping.

    Posted by Horse on Aug 3rd 2020

    I wanted to upgrade my kit from 3a to 4. I was looking at plates fot my safe life and was guided by amcon to Shellback. They had stock on hand and shipped the next day. I have the option of running the plates in my safelife or on top of my soft in the carrier or just stand alone carrier only. The carrier itself gives me space to run with 240 rds , 3 pistol mags ifac and a 1911. The velcro system is exceptional and very secure. I’m gonna order one for my lady next. Or myself as she has commandeered this one. It looks much better on her anyway. Thanks shellback!

    Pretty good

    Posted by Josh Delaney on Jul 23rd 2020

    Fits well very comfortable only issue is the front and back panels are kinda small an run outta room fairly quick so can't really stack on as many accessories as I'd like but that's ok not as much weight then other that very happy with it gonna grab the side plates soon

    Amazing Quality

    Posted by John on Jun 22nd 2020

    I bought the active shooter skirmish plate carrier. Right out of the box I was very impressed with the quality and craftsmanship. Fits perfectly on me with out even adjusting anything. Im 5'10 200 pounds for reference. The price also couldn't beat after doing a lot of research on different plate carriers.

    Great Combo

    Posted by Unknown on Jun 17th 2020

    Received the product quickly, went together quickly. Easy to adjust, and comfortable. Plus, the cummerbund can be removed if you want to go as a more slick, basic carrier.

    One size may fit all

    Posted by Jon on May 13th 2020

    I bought a carrier and all pouches from shellback. Highly impressed with the quality of the work. Only issue is, the size. I’m active military, 6’2” 240 lbs and the carrier is about the size of a standard notebook on my chest. From the carrier, standpoint it’ll carry what I need/want. Just wish was a bit bigger, the top corners of the carriers/plates are barely across the center of my pecs and wearing it high enough for the back to cover my upper back, the front is maybe midway between the bottom of my sternum and my ribs. I have to wear it so high the front and back plate carriers touch over my shoulders. Can’t wear the pads that came with them or the $30ish pads I bought. Again, quality of work is there... just made for someone 6 inches shorter and 60 lbs lighter. Also, shoulder straps slide around(loosen) a bit.

    Solid and Comfortable, just needs a little tape.

    Posted by 50 Caliber Karma on May 1st 2020

    The Skirmish came out of the box wrapped pleasantly, with a nice pair of solid plates underneath. It’s easily adjusted, and fits comfortably. I went out rollerblading and played a bit of hockey without any pinching or hotspots. My only complaint is the shoulder strap adjustment. It comes undone every time I lift up the carrier with the plates in, no matter how I do it. I ended up adjusting it where I wanted and securing it with gorilla tape.

    great product ships fast

    Posted by average civilian on Apr 7th 2020

    This is a very comfortable product, I’ve used it for running as well as training and it’s comfortable enough to use as a workout tool. I got this because I ordered a AR 500 armor carrier in early February and it still had not shipped in April. The carrier was comfortable and easy to adjust. The only downfall is that it comes lose easily, I fixed this by electric taping my webbing adjustments. There is enough real-estate to carry all essentials for reasonable use. Overall it’s a good plate carrier and good kit setup.
