"So I have had this plate carrier for exactly a year now and it's been a great reliable piece of gear for my loadout. I've been playing airsoft for about 3 years now and this was my first PC. I used to run an oldschool TAG riflemen chest rig and it wasn't really for me. I chose this PC because of the good reviews and trust me they do not lie. I'm 5'6 160lb, and I would say it fits me pretty good, there's plenty of molle for those pouches and extra shiz just to look operator. If ur looking for a nice plate carrier that's even qualified for real steel and won't break the bank then look no further then the shellback tactical banshee pc.
2. great MOLLE real estate
3. very comfortable
4. durable fabric
5. removable Cummerbund
6. very easy to shoulder rifle while wearing it
Con's or "things to consider"
1. you can kind of use this without the cummerbund but its not the most comfortable
2. best hydration bladder to ensure a comfortable fit and use is the 50oz. carrier by shellback tactical or its sister brand T.A.G
3. its a bit on the expensive side so I wouldn't say it is the best beginners plate carrier but if you've done your research and know you want to use a plate carrier over a chest rig id say GO FOR IT!
OVERALL: 10/10 it does EXACTLY what I need it to do and its very comfortable!
"I got this vest after running a modi jpc with medium plates and realizing that I needed both something more modular... and ranger green.
This plate carrier fits me and I am about 6ft tall and 215-220 pounds. I am not exactly fat but more stocky, and after I got this set up right this plate carrier is super comfortable. I can do just about anything in it as if the plates were not in the carrier at all, I also moved on to ranger green as it blends in much better than coyote tan where I live (Louisville Kentucky). The money you spend on this is well worth it, you will have a product that will give you so much more than what you will need it to, and when or if it does rip or tear it has a lifetime warranty I believe!
If you have any questions get a hold of me and I will try to help you out as much as possible!
