Banshee Rifle Plate Carrier

I wake up every day thinking how can we make gear that can better keep a police officer or military operator safe

Shellback Tactical, Inc from the beginning has focused on not only providing gear, but providing solutions to a problem. Michael Wratten, President of Shellback Tactical Inc and designer is a full time police officer in Southern California with 16 years of experience. Michael states " I wake up every day thinking how can we make gear that can better protect a front line police officer or military operator. When we started there was a void in the market to protect front line police officers in dangerous active shooter incidents. With that void we originally based our designs to create equipment to assist the front line law enforcement officers in his or her duties to prevail in a high threat active shooter incident. The Go Time chest rig was born that led to a full line including the Banshee Plate Carrier that assist the front line officer and military alike."

We had the opportunity to work with one of the largest metropolitan law enforcement agencies, the Los Angeles Police Department (L.A.P.D). Over a period of time we worked closely in introducing the Banshee Plate Carrier to the department and worked through the testing and evaluation (T&E) process. The Los Angeles Police Department has a rigorous testing and evaluation process it puts equipment through for approval. At the end of the process our Banshee Plate Carrier was approved on their approved gear list allowing any officer the option to use our plate carrier. To have a product approved by them to protect their officers is an honor and a testament to our gear.
