I'm a Law enforcement officer and I bought this plate carrier an about 2 months ago and I loved it from the very beginning. I had done a lot of research on the internet, researching different plate carriers and systems. But nothing compare to quality that are you getting with the Banshee. It is a great tool special on active shooter calls and BP's calls. Good job Shellback. Great Product.

I bought this plate carrier a few months ago and loved it from the very beginning. I had done a lot of research on the internet, researching different plate carriers and systems, trying to find one that would fit my needs. I have had various types of carriers, IBAs, IOTVs, etc and they were all too bulky and were difficult to move around in. I hate sacrificing mobility for protection and the TAG Banshee is perfect! Wearing the Banshee, I dont feel like I am sacrificing anything! I can move around freely without having to strain! And above all, its extremely comfortable! I would definitely recommend this plate carrier to anyone looking for a high quality, low cost plate carrier for their kit.
One size does fit all

i bought this carrier for myself at 6' 3" at 255lbs i love it fits and works well on my frame . I took to show my friend , who owns a tac store , he asked how small will it go ? it fit on a girl that is 5' 3" at 96 lbs ( yes i do have pics) perfect fit. this is truly a carrier you could stock for training classes without worrying about fit on smaller students ..
