Shellback Banshee Plate Carrier

I won’t belabor a long review on this piece of kit. There are a number of reviews out there that have talked about this carrier and they can write better than I.

I will say this is one item that I received a lot of use while at my SUT class. I was able to carry 6 loaded magazines, an IFAK and a hydration bladder attached to the back of the plate carrier. No shoulder  or back issues.The carrier also rides well with a full size ruck sack.

I purchased this through SKD Tactical. First off, SKD Tactical is spot on with their service, shipping was free and I had the package in two days. One other thing that I like about SKD is if its not in stock, they don’t sell it. No charging your card while you wait, and wait.


Front view. Six mag pouches and a IFAK



Back view. I attached a bladder pouch to the pals. Had no issues with this setup even wearing a ruck.




Overall great piece of. Solid build, easy to configure to my upper torso and wears well. Plenty of PAL’s webbing all around. If your looking to wear side plates there are separate pockets that can be purchased and they easily attach to the cummerbund.
