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.

awesome June 8, 2016
Reviewer: Anonymous Person from Colorado Springs, CO  
This plate carrier is exactly what I was looking for. High durability material, form fitting, looks great. It's so light weight even with the ESAPI plates in that while maneuvering and shooting I honestly forget that I an even wearing it. I would recommend it to anyone looking to buy a plate carrier. If you would rather have the mobility/weight of a chest rig/FLC over that of an IBA or IOTV this is the plate carrier you want.

Shellback Banshee Rifle Plate Carrier June 8, 2016
Reviewer: Rocky H from Bayonne , NJ United States  
Well I own 4 of them so that must mean something about them, which is great, why pay way more when you can buy this carrier for much less.. Wish I could post photos here so you could see the setups, so if you are thinking of buy one, don't think anymore and go order one right away or 4 like I did.. Black, Coyote, Ranger Green, and Multicam..
