Fit and construction is good. Cummerbund isn't too big or small, and the ability to remove the buckles is amazing. My biggest gripe is the shoulder strap retention. When there is no weight being put on the straps and you go to pick it up they come completely loose and you lose your fitting. Please make a locking buckle. I had to use electrical tape to make sure this doesn't happen. As well, the extra length of strap you have to tuck under a nylon cover. There is nothing but friction holding it there and more than likely will come out over time so you keep having to put it back in.
Secondly the front and back halves can be a half of an inch shorter. When the plates are put in and pushed to the top and secured tightly there is about 3/4 of an inch of velcro overhanging. Does not affect function, just looks ugly.

Have worn multiple types and styles of body armor and plate carriers over the last 12 years of military service. This is by far the most comfortable. It’s weight and fit are outstanding. Holds plates tight to the body which makes running, jumping, etc easier, but still allows enough flex to breathe comfortably.

This is my first plate carrier and I'm absolutely blown away by the quality for the price that I paid! The sizing chart is spot on. It's fully adjustable to fit my body size. It's lightweight and I cannot wait to fully deck it out. I highly recommend this product and the Company! Everything I've purchased was shipped within a timely manner and the customer service was amazing!

This plate carrier exceeded my expectations for what to expect from a $100 carrier. The stitching and padding is flawless. Velcro is extremely strong and should hold up over time very well. But most of all it’s comfortable!

For the money, you can't beat the quality. Also the customer service was great and the shipping was extremely fast. I highly recommend Shellback.
