The BANSHEE 2.0 ELITE Plate Carrier (Banshee 2.0) was created from feedback and input from military and law enforcement customers on what features they wanted to see in a plate carrier.  Unparalleled comfort, mobility and design.

The shoulders on the Banshee Elite are fully adjustable, padded and slightly wider than the original Banshee.  The shoulders harness lays flatter on your body and has 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. Now including a set of  Banshee Ultimate shoulder pads with all Elite carriers.

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 interior of the front and back carrier on the body side are comfort padded with 3D mesh sewn to maximize airflow, allowing for rapid heat disbursement. Rifle plates are loaded from the bottom front/back and secured with a hook/loop closure.  A drag handle on the Banshee Elite was also include.

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 M4 style magazines or a Motorola XTS type radio.  The pockets have adjustable bungee pull tabs for retention.  The exterior and interior of the cummerbund have 3 rows of PALS webbing to accept side plates and/or other pouches.

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 rear of the carrier also contains a separate pocket from the plate pocket for adding a 2 liter hydration bladder.
