Sheppard Body Armor Plate Carrier- Camo – Quick Release

(53 customer reviews)


SKU: N/A Category:

The Sheppard tactical vest is designed to be a light and high-quality plate carrier for all of our available bullet proof plates. It is crafted from a water-resistant Oxford fabric and INCLUDES removable magazine pouches, storage bags and shell holders. Our ballistic plates will fit securely and will not bounce around in the front and rear pouches. The back yolk shoulder pads are excellent for weight distribution and there is an extendable Grab Drag handle for emergency exfiltration.  This vest has adjustable shoulder straps and an adjustable elastic weight band for a comfortable universal fit from small to 2XL.

The Sheppard vest side plate pouches which fit 6″x6″ and 6″x8″ plates comfortably and securely!

*The Sheppard vest has extra thick shoulder padding. It feels stiff when new but will soften up and lot and be well worth it! To speed up the process you can take them off and twist them a few times.

  2. Brendon (verified owner)

    Great quality. Fits both plates lvl4 super durable. Will buy again

  3. Michael Hill (verified owner)

    The one concern I had prior to purchase, the plastic quick release pull handles. To my disappointment, the right one broke the first day in use. However, I’ve discovered one can push down and slide the release off. Therefore still functional but not as intended. The shoulder releases, which are now metal, prior were plastic, great improvement. Overall happy, but room for improvement.

  4. Matt (verified owner)

    Fits great. Comfortable. Description was accurate.

  5. Stephen (verified owner)

    fits good, wears well. time will tell about its over all durability. Hopefully I will never have to test its bullet stopping abilities.

  6. Sean B. (verified owner)

    I just received these items a couple of weeks ago.. I haven’t been able to train with it yet but everything seems and looks very well made! Very happy so far!

  7. Anonymous (verified owner)

    Very happy with my purchase! The quality is definitely there and it was the best deal I could find for the capability, and has been Proven to me to work effectively, watching Classic Firearms vids where they tested it very thoroughly. Highly recommend!! Thanks Guard Dog!

    Awesome product. Awesome price.

  9. Jonathan (verified owner)

    Solid investment, love the Sheppard Plate Carrier! All of the accessory pouches are included and fits great. Love the quick release and custom fit options with side plate carriers spots. After doing research I trust Guard Dog Body Armor!

  10. Robert H. (verified owner)

    Items were shipped quickly and the quality is great. Very fair price also.

  11. Guy (verified owner)

    Surprisingly good carrier and plates. Carrier comes with many of the pouches I would add and is sturdy. I’m 6’2” 240 lbs and the carrier adjusts to my size without any issues. Hard to rate the plates, I haven’t been shot at yet, so I’m going on faith they will do the trick if, God forbid, I even really do need them. I like the slightly lower weight than competing plates – every ounce matters! I would recommend this set up to anyone looking for a medium duty carrier and lvl. 4 plates.

  12. Patrick Quirk (verified owner)

    Seems very high quality, bit stiff, but it’s brand new. Loved that it came with the side plate carriers, pistol mag pouches and the two bags on the rear of the carrier.

  13. Eric (verified owner)

    This plate carrier is well made and appears durable. This has plenty points of adjustment and fits me well (I’m 6’1, 215lbs). I purchased this carrier with the Guard Dog Level 4 Plates and they fit perfectly inside. The shoulder release points are metal cobra buckles that are well made. The side quick release are plastic and seem that they could break if you tug it too hard or the wrong way, but I have no problems with them. For me, the shoulder straps are too narrow and do not disperse the weight comfortably. I’m going to have to beef up the shoulder straps at some point. Overall, this is a decent product and I am pleased with it.

  14. Dvaughan Le (verified owner)

    Very surprised at how fast this item was shipped out. Love the shoulder buckles and feel of them, nice and secure and does not feel cheaply made. The adjustability of this vest for different sizes of the wearer are immaculate. Fit me like a charm after I put plates in and she is lightweight. Would recommend anybody and everybody to Guard Dog.

    Excellent equipment

  16. David D. (verified owner)

    Worth every penny…. Well constructed and durable. Has improved since first with metal buckles and removed the non reachable side mag holders, but they should’ve kept to 7 and not down to 5. I can always add which they make possible. Removed the rear bags on mine. Put small bag on battle belt and large bag to front of rig. This allowed me to attach a water bladder to the rear that matches. Now I can carry essentials easier on my rig and have access. Best part I got everything to match with the multi-cam. Thank you bulldog for making it easy and quick ship.

    Awesome product! Came in super quick! Very comfortable and I feel like I can move, stoop, run, jump without feeling bogged down!! Great vest, I have and will continue to highly recommend this vest to others!! Great job guys! Keep up the good work!! God Bless!!

    Plate carrier is great, well stitched, good clips and heavy duty material. Straps are stiff as stated but seem to be wearing in fine.
    Customer service here is also 5 stars. USPS lost my carrier package and so I contacted GD. A few hours later, way after work hours, they emailed back, said they would have a new package to me in the mail next business day, which happened. Awesome response, awesome help. Thanks guys.

  22. Christian J. (verified owner)

    The carrier is sturdy has mag pouches and gear bags on the back that are ready to go. It’s surpassed my expectations and even my expectations for more expensive gear. Second time customer turned lifetime customer.

  23. Dane R. (verified owner)

    Well made, fully featured carrier that costs a 1/3rd of what other places cost. And for less stuff. A+

    Everything was as advertised this plate carrier is comfortable and already decked out I will however be getting the lighter weight plates in the future due to a back injury since purchasing this awesome product

  27. Bryson (verified owner)

    Pretty good. Liked the way it felt once I got the plates in. Like the quick releases at the shoulders as well as the bottom. Only thing i wish I noticed that the mag pouch was not Mille but a pocket with Velcro on the inside. Other than that great product so far

  28. Zack Blaine (verified owner)

    Got as a Christmas gift for my father. Quality exceeded expectations and was delivered promptly.

  32. Anonymous (verified owner)

    Great Quality. Shipped within a day

  33. Kevin S. (verified owner)

    Great prod. Many reviews show how durable this is. I had an issue with my order and they were quick and responsive to my issue. The same day I received it, and expressed my concern, is the same day they sent me a shipping label to return it to fix my issue.

  34. Eric (verified owner)

    Nice carrier and seems like good quality. Note: the rifle magazine holders are too small for 308/7.62 magazines.

  35. Cody F. (verified owner)

    It’s very nice for the price. I think magazine separation and kydex magazine holders would make it over the top but I had an insert laying around from a chest rig.

  36. Anonymous (verified owner)

    Good quality, installation of plates could be explained with instructions or diagram better.

  37. Trent Swink (verified owner)

    Great just as described, could not ask for better in my opinion.

  38. Anonymous (verified owner)

    Best on the market

  39. Garrett Z. (verified owner)

    Excellent quality at an affordable price. Shipped fast and arrived ahead of the expected delivery date. I only gave the Sheppard a 4 out of 5 because the front placard is sewn in place and not removable.

  40. Anonymous (verified owner)

    Outstanding products and support!!

  42. Sean (verified owner)

    Side plates are top heavy and don’t rest up against as well as they should

  43. Cody G. (verified owner)

    It would be 5 stars but the molle had loose stitches on the vest in a couple spots right out of the package but not a huge deal. the vest itself is great otherwise. the plates seem great hopefully i never have to find out. Overall a great purchase. I highly recommend.

  44. Johnny R. (verified owner)

    Plate and anti spalling were a very tight fit, had concerns they wouldn’t fit at first. I like the way it rides on the shoulders and has quite a bit of adjustment for sizes.

  47. William Hayes (verified owner)

    Very comfortable. Fits well, im 6 ft 240lb. Some may have to adjust the velcro for the mag pouches, small inconvenience. The two pouches are fine, i did remove due to the odd way it Interferes with the gun sling. I will replace with a full height backpack. And the two will go on my belt. They seem that they may work little better for that. The three pistol/tool pouch is also fine, i did remove it cause its position that it comes at interferes with facial hair (long beard). I will use it on the belt as well. Received the carrier after about four days. When ordered the M4+ ridgebacks were two week back order but they arrived after one week. Thanks guys great product

    This was my first buying experience with Guard Dog. Seems to be a solid product, especially for the price point. I’ve only got about 6 hours of use but product seems to be sturdy, comfortable and of good quality. Guard dog seems like they care about their product. Aside from the solid product at a solid price. I think the bigger stand out is the customer service. The folks at Guard dog are on their game. Quick, pleasant and professional. I emailed with them back and forth a number of times and the response time was usually within an hour. Will 100% be a repeat customer.

  49. Anonymous (verified owner)

    Very good quality, my order arrived quickly and everything is good quality for the price, can’t beat it. I looked around and guard dog seemed to be the best deal and I wasn’t disappointed. Very good customer service, quick to answer any questions u have. Highly recommend guard dog
