Shellback Tactical introduces the new Banshee Elite 2.0 Plate Carrier Gen 2.
The BANSHEE 2.0 ELITE Plate Carrier Gen2 (AKA Banshee 2.0). This new unique advanced plate carrier was created from feedback and input from customers, military and law enforcement on what they wanted to see in a plate carrier. Unparalleled comfort, mobility and design.
The shoulders on the Banshee Elite are fully adjustable and padded, slightly wider than the original banshee the shoulders lay flatter on your body and have a hidden quick release buckle. The shoulders front and back have Hypalon material with 4 slits that is pliable allowing for easy access to the buckles. The bottoms of the Hypalon shoulders are not sewn down allowing for easier routing of comm wires or hydration lines. New Update – The shoulders include a set of our Banshee Ultimate shoulder pads with all Elite carriers.
The front and back of the Banshee feature 6 rows of PALS webbing and pile tape for flags and other identifiers. The interior of the front and back carrier on the body side are also comfort padded with 3D mesh sewn in an airflow pattern allowing for heat disbursement. Rifle plates are loaded from the bottom front/back and secured with a hook/loop closure. The drag handle on the Banshee Elite is sewn through and secured down with hook and loop.
The front of the BANSHEE ELITE is feature packed. On the top of the front of the carrier is an Integrated Admin Pouch now with a zippered gusseted pocket to secure items. This admin area allows for storage of small items, tools, batteries, chem lights etc. On the front of the carrier on each side are 2 vertical nylon strips to accommodate QASM buckles to accommodate chest rigs. The front flat closure stops at the bottom and does not run under allowing for fast easy donning and doffing.
The Banshee Elite plate carrier comes standard with the Banshee Elite Cummerbund that is removable and fully adjustable. The cummerbund has 6 interior pockets (3 each side) that will accommodate .223 5.56 AR style magazines. The pockets have adjustable bungee pull tabs. Exterior and interior of cummerbund have 3 rows of PALS webbing to accept side plates or other pouches. The pockets can also fit a Motorola type XTS type radio.
The cummerbund was lengthened slightly to give you better adjustability especially when used with magazines in the cummerbund.
Staying with successful concept of the original Banshee this carrier is one size fits most. Also standard is a secondary nylon strap system with quick release buckles (also removable) if the cummerbund is not needed. The front pocket of the carrier has a hook and loop kangaroo pocket to allow for accessories and magazines. Accommodates Banshee 2-mag pouch.
The back of the carrier in a separate pocket from the plate pocket opens and can accept a 2 liter hydration bladder. Integrated option to add hydration.
