Best carrier for the Buck
I've used many different carriers and set-ups throughout the years on and off-duty. This carrier ranks at the top for the best value and quality for the price. Will be upgrading to the new version next as it won't be disappointing. Great customer service and fast shipping from SRS!

Outstanding
I currently own and have used multiple carriers for various jobs and training so my priority with this purchase was discretion. Let me say that it is by far the most concealable carrier I have ever seen or used. I put on a loaded kwik triple shingle and a double ten speed pouch, threw a hoodie on and went to the grocery store. Nobody noticed a thing to my knowledge, this carrier is extremely well made and the versatility is endless. Shipping and seller communication was 5 out of 5 and I look forward to doing more business here.

Great plate carrier and great company
Great plate carrier, swift clip compatible, comfortable cummerbund with useful side pouches, the mulitcam is well done and is really low profile. SRS Tactical got to my house in no time and representative on the phone was super kind and helpful.

Top tier quality.
Fits like a dream, very customizable in terms of fitting it to your body type as well. Doesn't get in the way of anything and its easy to shoulder your rifle when wearing this carrier. Materials also feel extremely durable.

Very nice minimal set up.
Well put together, makes you quickly realize how fat you are though. Will run it slick, and use a chest rig if I need to carry mags and crap.

Now I see why so many Like this Plate Carrier!
Shipping was super fast, ten minutes after order I had a shipping number. Now I see why people like the Slickster. It feels amazing and very adjustable. Very Lightweight, when it was inside the box it felt empty. Was able to fit my thicker plate (1.2 inches) in the back. Velcro is strong and I know it will last. Even without shoulder straps, it is still comfortable. The cummerbund is the soul of the carrier. I see why so many praises of this plate carrier and can't go wrong with it.

Good so far .
I gave it a 4/5 on quality simply b/c I haven’t put enough time in it yet . Seems to be well made , just not sure how long the elastic cummerbund will last . Very concealable plate carrier . Would recommend if doing low vis ops or contractor work . It’s a la carte style can def bump the price up to the Crye jpc . Also, I put swimmer cut plates in it and there’s a little too much room left. Either way it’s worth a shot to try it out . I just haven’t ran around enough yet in it to give it a more thorough and complete review .

Great option for a low-profile plate carrier.
I was initially dubious about the quality of the Slickster, but after having multiple recommendations, I took a chance and bought it. It's incredibly low profile, from the factory can hold either (8) 30 round magazines in the cumberbund, or any other small equipment you chose. The cumberbund is elastic, though very tense and firm, high quality. I don't see it stretching out or getting stringy any time soon.

Stellar and very underrated!
Simple, understated and very well made. Definitely worth the search and the free 2 day shipping was amazing. Arrived before my plates came. I also own a crye precision JPC 2.0 and this is far better in price to value.

Just Buy It
Running Duritium III+GT plates with backers, these are thinner plates and slid around a lot in other carriers, but fit extremely well in the slickster. Very concealable, comfortable, well worth the cost.

Great minimalist vest!
BLUF, well worth the price! Other sites still have a waiting list and I was lucky to get my slickster for the range. I run a 3 x KYWI mag set with MOLLE and have had zero issues in tactical reloads or indexing. The side pouches are perfect for additional mags, tourniquets, boo boo kits or granola bars as I am waiting on the range. You can't go wrong if you are looking for a vest that allows you to shoot, move and communicate

Great minimalist vest
I use the vest for active shooter scenarios and range time. BLUF, its worth the price and one of the best minimalist vests out there on the market.
I have run with department issued vests and I prefer the slickster due to its simplicity. The velcro on the back makes it easier to run an IFAK or any type of first aid kit. Just rip and drop to anyone needing some type of first aid. Highly recommend this vest for those on a budget.

Slickster A+
Minimalistic plate carrier, seems well made and nice easy adjusting to get proper fit. Customer service was great keeping me updated on my order. Buy your slickster from SRS.

Looks Good and Feels Good
Two things I like about the Slickster. The price and the velcro front. You can run it slick if you want to and then run a mag pouch on it whenever needed. All of this has been said before.

About the price - you still likely add mag pouches so that's an extra 175 from Haley (for the d3crm with insert) or 75 from Ferro (for the Kwick Triple Shingle). Plus cash for shoulder straps.

The Armatus II PC is probably the better value. Crye JPC 2.0 (for the velcro front also) is a strong contender. But still it's an argument of who's tied for first.

JPC 2.0 and Armatus II have a drag handle. Slickster does not.

As for SRS customer service - five stars all the way. Buy here!

Great customer service.
Overall very happy with both vests I ordered. Black and Tan versions. Fit is true to description and I’m not overweight but not super slender either and these fit great. I can work out in the one I set up with non-ballistic plates and no issues with feeling constrained while breathing.

Great light-weight carrier!
Excellent fit and finish all around from Ferro. Works great with light lvl IV ceramic plates. Can't beat this carrier for the price. I paired mine with the new Haley Strategic DC3RM micro chest rig. One of the most comfortable carriers I have ever wore.
