Solid, Durable Plate Carrier

When you need versatility, longevity and ease of use, this plate carrier is the choice to make. The option of fastex or cumberbund make this carrier perfect for long patrols or "just in case" as added protection. From a LEO perspective, use fastex, single plate in front and a three mag shingle to hold 90 rnds for your M4 and you have immediate response level III threat protection. From a patrol perspective, the fastex removed allows for a comfortable close fit with plenty of molle for PFAK and other gear. Oh, did I mention fast shipping? Price? yea, that's great too.
Great product!!!

This vest is extremely well built and will be very durable. No complaints on the vest itself just wish it would have come with tags on it and maybe some literature talking about it. Shipping was fast and have no complaints there at all!!! Only reason for 4 stars and it's not really a big deal, but the molle triple shingle pouch I ordered for this vest was suppose to be ranger green! The pouch itself is ranger green and does match the vest, but the molle webbing on the pouch does not match the molle webbing on the vest. The green webbing on the pouch is a little lighter green. NOT a big deal,but would have been a nice touch if it all matched! Other than that the vest,pouch, and service from this store is excellent! Thanks
Excellent, Versatile Carrier...

I have owned two Banshee carriers (BOTH ordered from TAG). After I had ordered the first one (prior to the “closeout pricing”, and I had used it for a while, I ended up ordering a 2nd after the closeout pricing dropped the $$, because they are so good, I couldn't pass up another at the lower price. I know it doesn’t matter to many people, but I was a little disappointed to hear that the “1000 D” Cordura used in these versions is going to be swapped out with the “500 D” Cordura versions which are being produced (by Shellback Tactical) in the future, but this also helped by decision to buy a second Banshee from TAG before the closeout was done. Overall, they are excellent, comfortable and highly versatile carriers. The layout and overall design allows for a lot of different ID and equipment options while still giving the wearer physical flexibility and freedom of movement to do whatever it is you're going to need do while wearing one. Use of several different handguns and long guns and other equipment was comfortable and functional (once I figured out how to “move” in this carrier and to place everything where I wanted it). Additionally, the Banshee has some features which show that some actual, solid thought went into the design. The ability to choose between simple QD clips and/or a full, removable (and included) cummerbund, which allows you to run soft armor or side armor throughout the carrier, is just one example of this. The additional options of using "add-ons" (designed JUST for the Banshee) like the shoulder pads or integration of other systems with the Banshee, like those designed by a different company (like a “multi-purpose” chest rig for example), demonstrate some of the other varied options available to the end user when choosing a Banshee. Basically, this is rock solid kit all the way around with quality workmanship. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend it to someone who truly needs a plate carrier they could trust their life to.
Still have yet to receive it

Had to wait 15 days for it to ship, and because of some sort of complication with the carrier I still have yet to get my hands on it. The last part is not TAG's part but this is not a good first impression of the company when their site policy is "If your items are in stock, your order will ship Monday-Friday, within 1-3 business days of order placement." I may come back for items and further business in the future because TAG has a nice stock, but hopefully they will have their shipping end figured out by then. ***TAG RESPONSE*** We apologize for the shipping difficulties you expressed. Due to the overwhelming popularity of the closeout pricing on the Banshee, shipping and processing times were delayed. For that we sincerely apologize, and we thank you for your honest feedback.
