Our friends at Shellback Tactical have partnered with Victory Tactical Gear (VTG) to offer a package deal, the Banshee Defender System, that includes two of VTG level IV stand-alone plates along with a Shellback Tactical Banshee Plate Carrier. The package sells for $480. I haven’t seen any formal testing of these plates but, for what it’s worth, the anecdotal accounts of their performance have been good. I can also relate that the Banshee is a reasonably comfortable PC for stand-alone plates, even single curve plates like these, since the plate pockets are padded.
Check out the Banshee Defender System.
Man that looks like one hell of a set up. Wish my department could give that to all my fellow officers.
The level 4 stand alones are ceramic. Not multi hit steel from what i have read do far, so for civ not what i would wear. Level3 plus with plate backers is what i recommend for a citizen without Agency backing.
