The BANSHEE Rifle Plate Carrier was designed to meet and exceed the needs of the operator.

Well worth it!

I had been looking for a superior quality carrier for months. I didn't want one that was bulky, uncomfortable poor quality or plain ugly. I purchased the multiple cam Banshee and couldn't be happier. I run mine with the cummerbund, even in hot weather,+100F, and it's not bad at all. It's super comfy and fits well. I'm 6' 190lb with muscular build and it fits just great. I just ordered plates for it. I HIGHLY recommend this rig! Super heavy duty strong material and sewn very strong. Plus it's made in the USA!!!! Enough said!
Awesome Product!

Bought this just prior to deployment, more than held up. Easy to adjust, and as comfortable as they get! A+
Banshee Plate Carrier

After the ever increasing frequency of active shooter incidents, my Department applied for and received a grant to buy rifle caliber rated plates and plate carriers. The carrier we chose was the TAG Banshee. We have had the Banshee for about a year and have had to don it for several critical incidents and firearms training. The Banshee has a wide range of adjustability; from the thinnest to the widest, from the shortest to the tallest, the Banshee fits us all. The Banshee has plenty of MOLLE space to hold all the necessary gear efficiently and comfortably balanced. Price, quality, and performance all in one carrier!!
Great Plate Carrier

Bought this plate carrier a few years ago, love it. It held up great through classes and range time. Good quality product, low profile, highly recommend this PC!
Excellent Carrier

Of the different types of plate carriers and body armor I've worn over my career, the Banshee is at the top of my list. It's got the versatility and the durability I need for use overseas. For the cost, you simply can't beat it. It's a solid platform and I would absolutely suggest it to anyone who asks... and have on several occassions. Well done TAG.
