Law enforcement, military and private military operators need reliable protection that allows for quick mobility in the field. Shellback Tactical recognized this need and developed the Banshee Rifle Plate Carrier in response.

The ultra lightweight, low profile, high quality plate carrier has great load carrying capacity.

Shellback says the Banshee is “idea gear for law enforcement patrol officers for use in high threat active shooter situations, Multi-Assault Counter Terrorism Action Capabilities (MACTAC) and Counter Terrorism direct actions.”

The shoulders on the Banshee Rifle Plate Carrier are fully adjustable and padded with a new advanced design feature not seen in other rigs. Once adjusted, the shoulder areas slides into themselves and locks in securely with a hidden quick release buckle. The shoulders have two rows of PALS webbing with elastic nylon sewn in between the PALS webbing allowing for comms or hydration tubing.

The front and back of the Banshee feature five rows of PALS webbing and two 2-inch rows of loop sewn on for flags and other identifiers. The front and back of the panels of the carrier on the body side are also padded. Rifle plates are loaded from the bottom front/back and secured with a hook/loop closure.

The Banshee Rifle Plate Carrier comes standard with a removable cummerbund. The cummerbund runs through the carrier, is fully adjustable (one size fits most) and has PALS webbing on the interior and exterior to accept side plates or other pouches.

Also standard is a secondary nylon strap system with quick release buckles (also removable) if the cummerbund is not needed. Both cummerbund and secondary system integrated on all Banshees. The front pocket of the carrier has a hook and loop kangaroo type pocket to allow for accessories.

The Banshee Rifle Plate Carrier retails for $199.99.
