When ordering outside of United States of America, the recipient is responsible for assuring the product can be legally imported to the destination country.

The recipient is the importer of record and must comply with all laws and regulations of the destination country. The recipient of an international shipment may be subject to import taxes, customs duties and fees, which are imposed once a shipment reaches the recipient's country. Additional charges for customs clearance must be fulfilled by the recipient. 221B Tactical has no control over these charges, nor can predict what they may be.

Customs, duties, and taxes are non-refundable: so a shipment that is refused because of unexpected import fees, the cost of the original shipping and any return shipping charges will not be refunded. Customs policies vary widely from country to country; you should contact your local customs office for more information. When customs clearance procedures are required, it can cause delays beyond our original delivery estimates.

To avoid a delay in receiving your order from customs, we strongly suggest:

  • Providing a phone number where you can be reached by customs when your product arrives. This phone number will be listed on the commercial invoice so customs can reach you to clear your order.
  • Please do not refuse a shipment or ignore requests from carriers regarding duty and/or tax liability charges. Be aware that most carriers will hold a shipment for 5 days after arrival in your country before they return it to the sender.

We do not refund original shipping charges for goods that are refused for delivery at customs.

WHY YOU NEED THIS

When every second counts, you need to be confident in your gear. You don't have time to be dealing with equipment that isn't efficient or effective. And most importantly, you don't have time to waste. Your safety, comfort and protection is Priority #1. The Shadow Plate carrier was designed to take care of the three fundamental concerns when bullets are flying and your survival is on the line: SPEED, SAFETY and COMFORT.

HOW IT WORKS

The Shadow Plate Carrier incorporates the latest materials and technology to give you superior utility and comfort in any situation. Ultra Light Weight Polymer Cobra (TM) buckles on the shoulders and cummerbund allow for fast and easy donning and doffing. Stretch materials in the cummerbund allows for increased comfort, especially during high-intensity situations when heart rate and breathing is elevated. A modular system on the front of the plate carrier gives you the ability to interchange mission specific gear within seconds, not minutes like traditional plate carriers.

The Shadow Plate Carrier also incorporates 221B Tactical's proprietary Maxx-Dri technology making it the most breathable plate carrier on the market today. This not only allows fresh air to flow through it while being worn, it also helps better distribute the weight of armor plates more evenly, potentially reducing neck, back and shoulder pain. The Maxx-Dri material also prevents sweat from soaking into your plate carrier, keeping your carrier cleaner, drier, safer and less stinky. The Maxx-Dri material is removable and machine washable for easy care and maintenance.

Shoulder straps

Wore well except the shoulder straps dug in a bit. Fixed by adding some padding, now it is near perfect. Have yet to wear it in hot weather, but the couple times I moved around in it the air flow seemed to work well.

Simple and Effective

Just got done wearing this carrier for the first time and absolutely love it! Fits swimmer's cut plates with ease. The Cobra buckles make donning and doffing this carrier a breeze.

I'm utilizing a Blackhawk First Responder Placard for when I need the extra kit, but I would also be able to run this carrier slick, should I be so inclined, simply by removing the shoulder straps and placard. What's nice is I could run AR or pistol mags in the cummerbund and since they fit tight against the body, I could still run the carrier concealed.

The biggest advantage to this carrier is the design. It's genius in its simplicity. The cummerbund and shoulder straps are so easy to adjust It's child's play. The mesh panels in the carrier keep you cool and dry and the Cobra buckles just make sense.

Overall, this is a very high quality carrier and it just works; and THAT is the biggest success of this carrier. True function over form. Keep it up, 221B Tactical! We appreciate what you do!

Awesome

Might not win a fashion show for being taticool but this thing is beyond functional! Has a bunch of different pockets and ways to store magazines, webbing all over, light, and breathable for sure! Received the plate carrier and plates in 10 days even though the plates were back ordered for 4-6 weeks. I would not hesitate to buy this carrier again!
