    Condor Defender Plate Carrier
    September 9, 2016
    I looked at other options and bought this because it was wider ( I wanted sufficient room to mount four Shotgun Ammo Pouches, 2 side by side and one row above the other.) While that idea worked fine, this is a big vest: I'm 6'6" and 265 pounds and it's plenty loose, even over a sweatshirt. This will work just fine for my purposes, but I'd suggest that if you don't have a big barreled chest, to look for something else.
    Pros:
    Lots of room on the front to mount MOLLE pouches.
    Cons:
    Skinny guys shouldn't order this, there are better choices with other Condor vests.

    Great vest, well built, one size does not fit all
    April 13, 2016
    I received the vest super fast! It was a good thing because I had to return it. The vest itself was very well built, the molle system is awesome and all over this vest. The Velcro is extremely strong and felt like it would old up for years! The only drawback to this vest was that it was a little big on me. I am 6' tall and weight around 200lbs. When I put this on the length from the sternum to the bottom of the vest was about an inch and a half too long. With my duty belt on, it sat on top and pushed my belt down. I attempted to adjust the shoulders a lot and it did not help much. I'm not heavy in my mid section so I had to tighten the cumber bun really tight, yet it was still too bulky on the sides and inhibited access to my firearm and taser. I would have loved to keep this vest and would have if they offered different sizes. It fit my soft ballistics very well and they measure 16X22. I had to return the vest and I ordered the EXO S/M to try out and I am hopeful it will fit. It wasn't the actual product that got the 3 stars, Condor makes great stuff, but it was the lack of sizing that ruined it for me. If you are big this would work for you, but if you are under 6' tall and less than 200lbs, it may be too big on you!
    Pros:
    Well built, solid. Hook and loop was strong!!
    Cons:
    Need better sizing. Too long from top to bottom, sat on my duty belt....

    carrier is made of quality materials. I removed the padding inserts to make it thinner with plates and pads installed. the side plates pockets are on the cummerbund which is not secured to the back of the carrier so they tend to flop around when plates are installed. I finally had to just remove my side plates because of this. the side plate pocket should also be deeper. putting a standard 6x8 side plate in has a couple inches of plate exposed at the top.
    Pros:
    good price. quality materials. lots of Velcro fasteners. molle for days.
    Cons:
    side plate pockets cummerbund not the easiest to get out of or in to the carrier tends to buckle under the weight of inserted plates

    Quality Product
    July 27, 2015
    I read a few reviews and watched videos reviewing this product before I bought it and everything I read and saw put it in the moderate range of value for this vest. I got in it and although being my first plate carrier I really enjoy it. I am 6' tall and 180lbs and it fits me well with out plates in it. I have worn it around the house and doing yard work to get used to it and break it in and I have not any problems with discomfort. I will eventually get plates and do more running and training with this vest but over all I am happy with it. it is thick and does cause a lot of sweating but I was aware of that before buying and it's a non issue for me. there were no loose threads or bad stitching, the drag handle functions as it should. I gave it a 4 star rating because while I like this vest and plan on keeping it for a long time it could be a little thinner or could be more breathable.
    Pros:
    Good Stitching Thick Front/back and side plate carrier lots of area for attaching gear moderate weight
    Cons:
    could be lighter Thick, causes sweating

    This is a well made carrier, and it also nicely fits all the molle pouches I purchased.

    Good, not great.

    First the personal particulars: 6' 2" 220-230; suit jacket: 42L; BDU: LL; That being said Im a little out of shape since the Marines. I have this plate carrier adjusted down to fit snug over a technical/combat shirt, and prior to adding plates, mag pouches, etc. Mostly for personal defense, I do work for the DOD and I feel if I was deployed/stationed OCONUS and dropped 15+ lbs this thing might feel loose. I adjusted the cumber-bun as tight as it would go in the back and left about a 2-3 inch gap in the front between the velcro flaps. This puts the side plate pockets under an inch from front/back pockets on either side. I had to adjust the shoulder straps some to bring the front plate high enough to rest on my chest and cover the vitals propperly and comfortably. I dont think this could be adjusted down for someone smaller than 200lbs, even myself if I got back down to Marine Corps weight @ 185ish, without hitting the gym and bulking up. Otherwise, awesome piece of gear for your personal/professional kit.
    Pros:
    Very well constructed; stitching, velcro and plate pockets for multiple armor configurations. MOLLE webbing forever! Great for larger guys with need for full size plates and lots of adjustment.
    Cons:
    none so far

Almost a year later still going strong and comfortable! I'm 6-3, 220lb fits me great I love it! A friend of mine had a blackhawk vest within 6 month of use Velcro came off and molle webbing as well. Hes buying a condor vest now! Keep up great work condor!!!!

    By Mike Hanftwurcel on November 26, 2012
    Hello, will this carrier accomodate ballistic soft panels as well as hard plates. I currently have a body armor that I wear under my uniform but am looking an external carrier that will accomodate my ballistic panels that wrap around my sides. Thanks.
    on November 26, 2012

    Answer:
    Yes, this Condor plate carrier will accept both soft armor and plates and will hold two side plates.

    By Juan on March 4, 2013
    I am going to be using both hatd playes and trauma panels with this vest. Do the hard plates go in the outside pocketed area or do both hard and soft plates go on the inside pocketed area?
    on March 4, 2013

    Answer:
    Hard plates go on the inside pocketed area of this Condor Plate Carrier.

    By Kev on April 21, 2013
    How do rigs like this come apart to take on and off?
    on April 21, 2013

    Answer:
    To put this plate carrier on and off, you would want to pull up the flap in the front which would give you access to one of the side flaps which you could then pull on to open the side. That way you would not have to pull the entire plate carrier over your head.

    By Chris on August 12, 2013
    Hi, I have the ABA soft armor panels that wrap completely around my torso! Will this carrier fit my panels?
    on August 12, 2013

    Answer:
    This Condor Plate Carrier will fit soft armor, but it will not fit soft armor that wraps all the way around your body. The front and back portion of this carrier are not a single piece. You can see the dimensions of the front and back portions on the product page.

    By Scott on March 20, 2013
    I am a large person, will this fit a 42-44 inch waist?
    on March 20, 2013

    Answer:
    When fully extended, the bottom of this Condor Plate Carrier has a 52" circumference, so it should fit a 42"-44" waist just fine.

    By David on March 6, 2013
    Will this vest fit a male with a 34 inch waste? I recently purchased a similar vest and was too big.
    on March 6, 2013

    Answer:
    Yes, when loaded up this vest should fit an individual with a 34" waist. I tried it on with nothing on it and it felt fine, it is adjustable. (I have a size 30 waist).

    By Julio Zuniga on January 21, 2013
    Does this vest have belt loops to attach to your belt?
    on January 21, 2013

    Answer:
    This Condor Plate Carrier does not have loops to attach to a belt.
