    I have a Shellback Banshee, almost the same as your model. Shoulder straps are identical.

    I have a pretty short torso, and those shoulder straps are VERY adjustable. Those pads, the middle part, can overlap the other sections. Gotta play with it some, but they can be made super short.

    Yes, you can take that middle part out altogether, if need be.

    What I did with mine is, it's stuffed down into the front area, around the fastex buckle in the front. Did this to retain that little bit of extra padding they provide.

    I've got my straps very short, at about 10 inches.

    Thanks for this informational thread. I must say this applies to soft panels for concealable duty armor too since your gut can survive hits much better than your high chest area.

    Stumbled across your post years ago and never remembered where I saw it. It was as useful then as it is today. Thank you for taking the time to post it.

    Glad to help.

    On a related note, I do appreciate credit if my images or verbiage is used. There are a couple of plate carrier manufacturers that have straight up plagerised me with not credit.

    I clicked the link to your .pdf Panzerr, and I get 404 bad gateway. Has the site been taken down, server maintenance, or has this information been moved? I would like to read it, plus if acceptable and possible save it to my ebooks, for future purposes, of which I will not be copying it, promulgating it, or sharing it in any way, and as always credit due where it belongs. Also thanks for taking the time to create this thread.

    There is something wrong with the server. Message me your email address and I'll send it to you.
