    What model is that? Thank you.

    What Plate Carrier do you currently use?
    TAG/Shellback banshee

    How did you chose the make.model
    I chose it based on price/reviews/brand. I wanted a quality pc made from a reputable brand and I found it. I compared it to other quality brands with good feedback. It was between the PIG, Banshee and I believe it was ops corp or something. I wanted padded shoulder pads, cummerbund, the ability to use soft armor and side plates. I also wanted it to be light weight but still have plenty of real estate. Got down between the PIG and Banshee. Chose the Banshee because I could get the optional shoulder pads from tag and sew on velcro and the back and attatch the pontoon pads from skd and still be cheaper than the pig.

    Likes/Dislikes Strengths/Weaknesses
    Pros; light weight, highly adjustable, comfortable, use with or without molle cummerbund, high quality construction

    Cons; shoulder pads split (but easy fix with tags new shoulder pads), non split front

    *I'm a civillian.
    **I think people should also say if they have had any other plate carriers as well. For instance this is my first/only carrier so I don't have much to compare it too.

    What Plate Carrier do you currently use?
    SKD piggy, with elastic cummerbund

    How did you chose the make.model
    Reviews online, looking at pictures of the padding kind've sold me.

    Likes/Dislikes Strengths/Weaknesses
    pros-It feels pretty comfortable, I've been running it for a while now but only very recently did i get plates for it. Impressed with how comfortable it still is even with 10+ extra pounds in there. The split flap in the front is pretty convenient. Its nice to be able to keep one cummerbund attached. Ladder system on shoulders is a great way to adjust for all sizes and a good interface (i would imagine) for rig mounted slings.

    cons-
    Cost- Pricey and i wonder if a TAG Banshee would have been "just as good"

    It's the Beez Combat systems NIJ carrier.

    Here's the front... It's like a beefy version of a concealment carrier.

    Updated my post above

    Mark: What soft panels did you use for that? How concealable is it with those straps going across the front? How's the quality? I've been looking for a rig like that as well...

    I picked up some IIIa soft panels from GreyGroup... I think the biggest panels fill the carrier, but I could check the size. I've not tried to wear it in a concealment fashion.... although any loose coat would do it. It's built well. Good material and velcro.

    It works well with concealment style soft panels in a larger size than you run for a normal concealed carrier under a uniform shirt. That's what I liked about it.... it's a beefed up concealment carrier that gives me more coverage without all the crap on the chest that messes up your prone.

    Is there any problem that the plate in front sitting a little low on chest?
