Shellback Tactical Banshee Rifle Plate Carrier

SKD is proud to offer the HOTTEST sub-$170 plate carrier on the market- 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. It
may 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.)

first time buyer April 14, 2014
Reviewer: ricardo brambila from berwyn, IL United States  
Im a small guy 5'5" 140, and this thing fits perfect, and im sure it will accommodate bigger guys, bought a condor for half the price, but it was larger and not ergonomic, felt stiff and cheap, but hey it was cheap. Banshee was a quality product, im tight on cash and research a bunch of different ones, even $300+ ones, but the best one with features and size was this one, youtube videos really helped. By far this was the best for the money. Will be shopping SKD from now on.

Shellback Banshee plate carrier. April 14, 2014
Reviewer: Chip Jackson from Churchville, VA United States  
I have not yet had a chance to use the plate carrier in a training or airsoft exercise. Just fooled around with it at home on my range I have here. It is extremely comfortable and adjustable. Is made of quality materials and seems like it can meet or exceed any demands I might put on it. I am very impressed with it over all. It was recommended to me by a close friend of mine who is helping me get into airsodt training and events. Now all I gotta do is get all my MOLLE pouches. Which is kinda daunting, never realized how much was out there for that. WOW. You guys rock!!

Can't Shoulder Rifle. March 31, 2014
Reviewer: Jonathan from Huntington Beach, CA United States  
So first things first. This plate carrier sits and fits like a champ. Super durable and plenty of real estate for lightweight setups. The only downside I could find about this carrier is the wideness of the straps and upper area. You just can't get a good shoulder with a rifle. the plate gets in the way with the straps even with a shooter's cut on the plate. So all in all. If you want a plate carrier that is easily affordable and has all the features get this. Just be wary of the shoulder width.
3 stars because that shouldering is a big deal for me...

Shellback banshee March 31, 2014
Reviewer: Richard Frazier from Driftwood, TX United States  
I was looking for a simple, light and durable p/c. The banshee absolutely fit the bill. I don't need miles of real estate on the front of my p/c I am not involved in maritime operations so I didn't need a quick release pull tab. The carrier has less padding on the front and back than other p/c I've used, but unless you run stand alone plates it should not be an issue. With out armor it's still very comfortable. I run IIIA soft armor backers and level III hard plates and its become my best fitting most comfortable p/c. I am 5 11 175 pounds it fits me very well. My only up grade was a set of hsgi shoulder pads made all the difference when running full armor and load out .
