Exclamation Shellback Banshee on Larger Guys

Hello!
I currently have a Condor Defender Plate Carrier in OD, and it's just too big.
I am a larger guy (in weight and size), only about 5'8, though.
I run woodland camo and I like OD gear.

I was thinking about purchasing a T.A.G/Shellback Banshee.
Unfortunately, it doesn't come in OD! I was talking to a gentleman at AirsoftGI (via the interwebz), and he said that the Banshee's Ranger Green is very similar to OD.

My main problem is that, with it being a slim, smaller plate carrier, is that it will look comically funny on me.
I have a large stomach and chest, and I don't want it to look dumb. I know I can adjust it to sit lower on my body, but is it a really tiny vest?

Is there anybody out there, that is a little bit bigger, who has a Banshee and can show me how it looks on them? Also, if anyone has a Ranger Green Banshee, to send me a picture with that and the rest of their gear (if the rest of the gear is OD).


Hahaha I know this sounds very weird, but bare with me!

Thank you very much.

6'0" and (at the time) 260 lbs. I found the banshee too small for me. Personally for a bigger boy the lbt 6094 is a much nicer fit. Basically a PC that is 8 columns wide fits nicer than a PC 6 columns wide. Just my two cents from my experience.

Found some old pics...

Me with Banshee:



Me with Flyye replica LBT 6094:



And my current High Ground Gear plate carrier (very similar in size/style to 6094):



Hope staring at my gut helps you in your quest.

Well, I enjoyed looking at your guts :P
I really appreciate the pictures, they really help!
Is the Banshee able to be lowered so it doesn't sit high? I thought I saw a picture once with the shoulder straps really long.

I have since bought one, and with very few adjustments, it fits quite well.
Thanks.
