      It's very well made...here's my issues, it does not hold the 6×8 ceramic side plates and I found it very difficult to remove with comberbun in. I'm now using it as a $200 back-up to my $140 primary that holds all my plates and can easily remove.

      This product is basically shown as one size fits most, but that really only applies if you are average or below average size, and not an officer that already wears body armor under the uniform.

      I didn't purchase from here directly, I got this with a set of AR500 plates (long wait but worth it). The problems I have with this carrier is the shoulder straps will not hold adjustment for more then a hour of wearing it and the cummerbund is setup for soft armor which I don't have but I have side plates so they start to sag when worn for a short time or with any movement, I have tried them on the outside and inside with the later being the best result. I'm going to try a few more things before I give up and try a different carrier.

      I did a lot of research before buying a plate carrier. the shellback banshee was highly recommended but when I got it is realized now small it really was. I am 5 ft 9 in 215 lbs and I felt like I was wearing baby cloths. That being said build quality and materials seemed great. I will also say for 189.99 there's definitely better plate carriers out there for a little more. After I returned it is got a London Bridge trading 6094s and couldn't be happier.

    • Great vest, fair price
      Reviewer: Colton

      This vest is one of my favorites. I've used it fairly gingerly, mostly for light field exercises and ranges. I've had everything from ESAPI to custom 1/4" steel plates in mine, and they all carry well. It has plenty of MOLLE to weave what you need on there, and it looks sharp when worn in uniform. The shoulder straps tend to come loose as you wear and pick up the vest, but it is a snap to cinch it back to your liking. As a fairly heavyset fella, I don't find much discomfort wearing it for long periods, and it can adjust to fit my beer gut. I recommend to all my friends looking for a start into protective armor.
