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.

5 of 5 Great Carrier - bad shipping December 3, 2019
Reviewer: JM from San Antonio, TX United States  
Bought this because I previously used the same model on deployment for seven months. I didn't have the included shoulder pads at the time, so it's a nice added accessory. Running ar500 III+ 10x12 with trauma pads, front and rear. HSGI pouches: double tacos (x3) for carbine mags, double pistol taco, Med pouch for IFAK, tourniquet pouch, radio pouch, and admin pouch. It's comfortable to wear for hours for me. Shipping could have used more care. Flat-rate box was beat to sh*t and they didn't put the carrier in any type of bag or use any packing material. This arrived with rubbed and scratched areas. It's a plate carrier, so not a big concern but it shows lack of care on SKD's part.

4 of 5 Really nice plate carrier December 10, 2016
Reviewer: Tim from MO  
I'm really happy with this carrier.  My last was a mayflower carrier but I found the shoulder straps to close together to where they were rubbing my neck really bad.  The banshee has plenty of room for a man's neck.

The only issue I had with the banshee is the cummberbund.  It is not attached directly to the carrier just fed through the back pocket.  That means when taking it on or off the cummberbund will slide to one side or the other.  I just took some 550 cord and put it through the Molle attaching the carrier and cummberbund.
