The Banshee is as expected, Great! Very tough and rugged construction, great fit, comfortable, and accommodates my AR500 plates like a charm. Didn't want to settle for something of inferior quality, man am I glad I went with the Banshee. If you're in the market for a plate carrier that doesn't cost an arm and leg, this is the one you want. Buy one! You wont regret it. (Posted on 8/4/2016)

Very impressed with the carrier for the price. I would definitely recommend it, unless you are over about 6'2'' in which case it will be a little small for you. In fact I was so impressed with this carrier, we ordered one for each member of our SWAT team to carry in their car as a back-up active shooter vest. (Posted on 8/3/2016)

Great product! I'm 6'2, 240 lbs, and it fits me perfect. Adjustments are extremely easy, it's very light, and the minimalist style is perfect to deploy quickly for a low profile, quick option in any self defense situaton, whether it be active shooter or home defense. (Posted on 1/16/2016)

Was better than expected. I'm a smaller guy. Fully adjusts to fit me. I always worry about that as I like it snug. This one adjusts perfectly at 5"9 165 lb.

Very well made. Blown away at quality. Vest was super hyped, but it went past what I expected. Buy this, won't be disappointed. Pro carrier. (Posted on 12/8/2015)

Awesome company. Great products that are affordable. Only one compliant regarding the carrier. Per Shellback tactical, AR500armor is not an authorized dealer... Your carrier will not be covered by their warranty (Shellback tactical) if you purchase from here. Found that out after I already made my purchase. *** AR500 Armor® Note, all Banshee Carriers offer the full warranty, please contact support@AR500Armor.com for more info** (Posted on 11/29/2015)

My rating takes into account the reasonable cost of the carrier; and, for the money, it can't be beat. It does have one issue that I'd change. The kangaroo pouch is about 3/8 inch too narrow for the any 3 mag pouch insert; and, it is totally lined in velcro, making it useless without a liner. They should change this to a lighter amount, perhaps three one inch lines or a big elongated "x". (Posted on 11/11/2015)

The product is top notch. The material and construction are superb. Top-Tier military personnel recognize it when I wear it. It easily stands up to the harsh environment, while maintaining an awesome level of comfort. (Posted on 11/6/2015)

Very pleased with this product. Great quality at a reasonable price. I also bought the operator vest for my wife and she is just as pleased with hers. We bought the contour Ill+ plates and everything fits well together. (Posted on 10/8/2015)

This is by far the best plate carrier I've ever had! Functions very well and fits perfectly. I am 6'3, 200lbs, athletic build, and the Banshee carrier fits just fine. Not too tight and not too loose, so don't be worried if you're a bit bigger up top. All around great product! And the wolf gray color is sweet! (Posted on 9/16/2015)

I purchased this product before deploying and it is the best carrier ive used by far. The front and back are perfect for my frame. 5'10 205lbs. Allows tons of mobility , provides fantastic vital protection while staying significantly lighter then most rigs.

In the field its performing great while going through the harsh conditions of where we operate. All around awesome product. (Posted on 9/8/2015)

Great carrier for small or medium build men/women. I had to send mine back because it looked like a sports bra on me lol. I'm by no means a huge guy. I'm 6' and weight around 229. It's just that my frame is large. Do you homework before buying. (Posted on 8/18/2015)

The banshee is awesome. I also own the concealed model, and that's the one I wear IIIA plates in at work. Got the banshee to carry rifle plates outside of work and man does it fit like a glove! I do enjoy the concealed model for at work but the extra materials on the banshee are just great! (Posted on 3/8/2015)

The product is well worth the money plus comes with lifetime warranty through shellbacktactical. Very heavy duty but flexible and comfortable. Shipping was quick. Customer service was amazing. Compared to other carriers people may avoid the price point. But with it having a lifetime warranty and the quality and durability it comes with its worth it. And I've used others and did not function like this in training in actual use. Thank you again for this product. 100% recommend. (Posted on 3/6/2015)

I ordered the Banshee Plate Carrier and outfitted it with 3/8" level III AR500 plates. I already wore the carrier and plates to a Carbine Level I class in Midland, TX. Trident Tactical Solutions owned and operated by former Navy SEAL Jason Pike. The setup was amazingly comfortable and very durable. I wore it for about 5 hours straight and was not fatigued in anyway. I highly recommend the setup. (Posted on 2/24/2015)

I'm a civilian, but that doesn't mean I don't deserve good protection! I bought the Banshee PC because of solid reviews on YouTube (Sootch00 primarily), and I'm not disappointed. This is a high quality rig and I'm proud that it's made in the USA! Stitching is incredibly tough and straight, and the Molle and hook-and-loop fields are top notch. I love the cummerbund and it holds the carrier to my body snug without wobble. Pairing this with the horizontal holster and HSGI Taco mag pouch system is a match made in heaven. Very nicely done. Well worth the wait! (Posted on 1/20/2015)

Looked great online, looks even better in person!!!! Love it. I'm 6'1 160 (a tall slim guy) I originally was about to order the Operator II but it looked a little big for me, but when I saw this one it made me think. After about a week I went for it. Now that I have it I'm MORE than confident I made the right choice. So to all the TALL & SLIM, GET THIS PLATE CARRIER!!!!!!....Also the ladies love it...just saying

Thank you AR500Armor (Posted on 9/15/2014)

Ideal low-pro armor carrier for a patrol cop, who doesn't have to carry 50lbs of support gear, 8 magazines, and frags. Very high quality, adjustments stay put unlike the Eagle carrier it replaced. Does the job and isn't overpriced. (Posted on 9/9/2014)

I'm 6'3", 230 lbs with a large chest. I have worn this rig with a full setup and four plates for two years. At least 5 days a week for 8-10 hours. The only complaint I had was the shoulder straps started to dig in a bit. Problem solved with HSGI shoulder pads. The stitching is superior to Tactical Tailor and is very robust. No complains at all.

This plate carrier is rugged, intuitive to use, and not bulky. Also, I'm a smaller guy (5'11", 170 lbs) and I can adjust the sizing down to fit me without issue whereas other plate carriers would have me swimming in them. Once again have to stress the excellent stitching and positioning of the molle and velcro. I look forward to putting some AR500 plates in here shortly! (Posted on 11/22/2013)

This is my second plate carrier and set of plates, I love it!! Very comfortable everything stays nice and compact on your body! The AR500 plates are very nice with the new coating and the body molding on them! I would recommend both carrier and plates to anyone!

Thanks for making a great product and being a solid US company!
