Shellback Tactical

Shellback Tactical sells a variety of combat gear. They are best known for their proprietary Banshee armor plate carriers. They pride themselves in creating operator-evolved gear that grows as our men and women in arms grow their tactical knowledge and battlefield experience. Shellback promises its customers that it will design and sell gear that is on the cutting edge as the needs of real operators change over time.

The company was started by law enforcement retiree Michael Wratten in 2003. After 18 years in the force, he launched Shellback Tactical to continue his legacy and designed the Banshee Plate Carrier. His original product is now trusted by military and law enforcement agencies across the nation and now graces the facilities of Chase Tactical. As a partner of Shellback Tactical, we are proud to offer their LAPD-approved Banshee Plate Carrier and accompanying accessories.

Shellback Tactical Gear Features & Benefits

Banshee plate carriers are designed for use by both the military and the police force. Planned and executed by law enforcement for law enforcement, the Banshee rifle plate carrier is ideal for use in high-threat, active shooter situations. It is also recommended for use in Multi-Assault Counter-Terrorism Action Capabilities (MACTAC) and counter-terrorism operations.

The shoulders are completely adjustable and padded. They also have two rows of PALS or MOLLE webbing so officers can easily attach gear they need at hand like communication equipment, mags, or hydration equipment. Carriers are made to hold up to 10 X 12 inch level 3 and 4 armor plates. The sides can hold 17 X 6 inches soft armor. Banshee plate carriers are Berry-compliant and only made in the US. They are tested and approved by both the National Tactical Officers Association and the LAPD.

Few armor systems can boast that they are personally designed by someone who has lived and breathed combat as Shellback Tactical can. Real experience has helped to create a real plate carrier by Shellback Tactical.
