Shellback Tactical Banshee Rifle Plate Carrier

SKD is proud to offer - the Shellback BANSHEE!
After meeting with Shellback and reviewing the Banshee’s features, we concluded that when it comes to function for dollar, the Banshee IS the market leader. Itmay not fit the bill for everyone, but if you are new to the PC market and are looking for a great entry-level option, the Banshee is a serious contender.

The BANSHEE Rifle Plate Carrier was designed to meet and exceed the needs of the operator. If you are an Operator, Military and Law Enforcement alike who needs a high quality carrier that has great load carrying capacity in a compact lightweight design the BANSHEE is for you. The Shoulders on the BANSHEE rifle plate carrier are fully adjustable and padded with a new advanced design feature not seen in other rigs. The shoulder areas once adjusted slides into itself and locks in securely with a hidden quick release buckle. On the shoulders are 2 rows of PALS webbing with elastic nylon sewn in between the PALS webbing allowing for comms or hydration tubing to be ran through.

The front and back of the BANSHEE feature 5 rows of PALS webbing and two 2 inch rows of Loop sewn on for flags and other identifiers. The front and back of the panels of the carrier on the body side are also padded. Rifle plates are loaded from the bottom front/back and secured with a hook/loop closure.

The BANSHEE rifle plate carrier includes a removable cummerbund. The Cummerbund runs through the rig, is fully adjustable (one size fits most) and has PALS webbing. If the Cummerbund if not needed it can also be removed, and the rig can continue to be secured by a secondary nylon strap system with quick release buckles (also removable). The front pocket of the Carrier has a hook and loop kangaroo type pocket to allow for accessories.

NEWS- The Banshee Rifle Plate Carrier is now L.A.P.D. Approved for use by officers. It is on the Approved Gear list for the Los Angeles Police Department (L.A.P.D.)

Very good Product April 20, 2016
Reviewer: Anonymous Person from United States  
Item was as advertised and arrived in record time. As far as the carrier quality, very good all around, with the exception of the shoulder straps and the way they attach to the carrier.  Could have been a little heavier duty IMO.  Not sure how this vest would hold up to hard use with F+B plates plus side plates (24 lbs).  For lighter duty it will work just fine, and it fits my medium frame perfectly.  The quick release adjustable buckles are a plus, and my F+B 10x12 plates fit snugly with no movement.  If not for the straps, I would give it 5 stars.

Fantastic Carrier April 20, 2016
Reviewer: Chad C from Lincoln, CA United States  
Shellback did everything right here. Fits great, is great quality and supports most body types. Facilitated by SKD who is hands down the best place to buy from.

Banshee Plate Carrier February 3, 2016
Reviewer: Curt M from Lancaster, CA United States  
The Banshee Plate Carrier is one of the top of the line carriers you can buy for this kind of price. Well made and will hold up to just about anything you can throw at it. SKD Tac has the best price I've found for this carrier.

Poor Quality January 22, 2016
Reviewer: Bryce from Eagle Mountain , UT United States  
SKD is awesome as usual and my complaint is not with them.  This plate carrier is terrible.  The logo was sewed on upside down and the stitching is not what I expect from a USA made company.  Feels cheap and and quality is poor at best.  Save your money and purchase another.  I don't know why people like this product.
