Customer Reviews

Review from Thad Review by Thad
I ordered this and when it was shipped, they had forgotten to send the side plate pockets. They were very quick to fix their mistake and send me a pair once I brought it to their attention. Very good product and good customer service. I plan to order more from them in the future. (Posted on 8/18/2015)

Review from Taylor H. Review by Taylor H.
I made the mistake of ordering this in September, during the "body armor ban" panic, so I didn't get mine until December 10. It was worth it, though.

I took this plate carrier through a week long class at Tactical Response in Camden, TN. We fired about 2500 rounds of ammunition, and I wore this rig for about seven hours a day. It feels awkward at first, but you acclimate quickly. The pouches made reloading simple, and it was easy to take on and off when necessary. The curved plates made it comfortable to do drills from the prone and supine positions.

At no time did I have any doubts about the carrier's durability. It took whatever we dished out. I was laying on mud, clay, sand, and sharp rocks. Not a single tear.

I'd recommend this to anyone who's a first-time buyer and interested in a simple plate carrier setup. I'll be adding more things to mine in the future. (Posted on 12/16/2014)
Review from Anthony C Review by Anthony C
The Banshee Plate Carrier is awesome, very solid, heavy duty material. Would highly recommend this product to anyone looking for dependable, great looking personal body armor. Ended up getting one for myself and my wife! She isn't too sure about it (thinks its overkill)... but if SHTF she will be glad its there (and looks pretty). (Posted on 12/2/2014)
Review from TEMS 14 Review by TEMS 14
Ran an AR500 Operator II package for a year, needed to upgrade to a more durable carrier that could handle my work load. The Banshee is a carrier that is a tough as their awesome plates! Great combo. AR500 helped me upgrade with EXCELLENT customer service. Consider supplemental shoulder pads to distribute weight if you have a lot on your kit. I can't imagine anything better than an AR500 Banshee set up. (Posted on 11/17/2014)

Review from Erich L Review by Erich L
The Banshee carrier is a great system. Maybe I'm nostalgic, but I would really like to see a plate carrier setup like what we used in Iraq. It holds everything tighter to your core. (Posted on 9/23/2014)

Review from Andre Review by Andre
Perfect combination of economic price point and rugged quality. It actually arrived before the estimated time and I am 100% satisfied. (Posted on 2/4/2014)
Review from Ryan Review by Ryan
Very please with this plate carrier and the plates. Weight seemed like quite a bit (having no experience with rifle plates previously), but once in the carrier the weight is distributed well and isn't much of an issue. The carrier seems to be constructed/stitched well and I dont see any major issues any time soon. Shipping took about a month, but I was kept in the loop via email and have no complaints. Thank you (Posted on 1/23/2014)
Review from Jason R Review by Jason R
Great quality at an affordable price! Wait time did exceed promised date by five weeks though, which I was unthrilled about until I got it. Correspondence was prompt when I had questions. Its comfortable to wear and does not have rubbing issues when wearing like other brands do. I would buy this rig again! (Posted on 10/11/2013)
Review from Gary J Review by Gary J
Ordered mine back when there was a 8 week wait for shipping. It was worth the wait. It rides in my cruiser every day just in case and it's comforting to know it's there. Well worth the money and more practical than ceramic plates for my purposes. (Posted on 9/30/2013)
Review from Anderson Review by Anderson
The product is awesome! It does what it's suppose to do very well. I'm a police officer and bought it to build an active shooter set up. For me this rig was a bad buy it doesn't deploy fast enough but that's my fault not the products. In my opinion for the money you can't get a better rig. (Posted on 9/30/2013)
