    Condor Recon Chest Rig
    For the price you cannot go wrong with this chest rig. I was looking for something to carry my magazines but being 6'7" tall made it impossible until I found this chest rig and read all of the reviews on it. There is plenty of room to add on to it also I added a 5.11 holster on to mine and still have plenty of room to add more on to it.
    ProsFinally a chest rig for those of us that are big and tall and it is hard to beat the price.
    ConsHave not had a chance to get out and use it.

    Lot for the money
    I wanted something to keep my stuff together. I couldn't justify a plate carrier and really didn't want to tote the weight. I added two large pockets for medical and misc. Fits great. Lots of storage for the price.
    ProsPrice, options to add pockets, construction, adjustable, customizable

    Has plenty of material to adjust smaller or larger. I'm 6" 220 and have a 48" chest with 36" waist (TMI? Sorry). I had to take in a whole bunch of material to size it. Now it fits like a glove... Great rig

    Great Rig For The Price
    I was looking for an affordable light weight chest rig option for training and the possible SHTF scenario. This rig is rugged enough for my purposes and has most of the features I was looking for as well as the ability to add alot more. With some thoughtful and deliberate adjustment this rig can be outfitted for someone large or small. I'm 5'6 150lbs. and I had no problems getting it to fit properly.
    ProsAlot of Mag Space, Rugged, Light Weight, Semi-Modular, Very Budget Friendly.
    ConsProbably wouldn't be my first choice if I needed a true "Go To War" option. But I do think it could hold its own for a while if needed. In the end you always get what you pay for. And there's a reason some gear is considered Top Flite.

    Condor chest rig
    This rig is a well made and for the price can't be beat. Shipping was fast and arrived well boxed.
    ProsWell made price is right tough durable piece. I got the Hydro system and added it to the rig Awesome!
    ConsThe only con I have is this, I'm not a big guy 5ft 8in and around 165. I swam in this thing even after adjusting. With that being said that was without my bullistic vest on. So I sold it to family member who is about 6ft 210 lbs fit him perfect. I needed it to fit wo the vest on all the time.

    Good piece of gear.
    I can never complain about the delivery, LA Police always gets my order in and on time. The chest rig itself is well built for the money. It's very comfortable and very easy to adjust. The only compliant that I have ,and the reason I did not give it 5 star is there are to many pistol pouches, I would have preferred the middle pouch be one solid pouch instead of two pistol pouches. Other than that this is a good piece of gear considering the fact that I'm using it overseas.
    ProsGood gear for the price
    ConsTo many Pistol pouches. (my opinion)

    Any chest rig makes it difficult to low crawl. You can preform a low crawl with it, but you just need to be aware of your equipment. I have found this chest rig to be very comfortable and puts needed equipment in the proper place. This chest rig aids in the proper manipulation of your rifle magazines. It also facilitates a proper transition from rifle to pistol presentation. Not to mention proper pistol reloads. In my opinion is would recommend this chest rig to any operational man or woman.

    I see the mag pouches are not removable but are the pistol mags removable or is it all fixed in place? I'm using this for actual military use and wanted to know if it's durable enough for that?
    8 Answers
    All mag pouches are sown on. As a Marine infantry veteran, I would say this is plenty durable for standing guard or security operations where you are not climbing walls or low crawling. I have an IFAK added to one side and an admin pouch added to the other. Add a hydration pack and you are good to go.
    on August 18, 2014
    from Auburn, GA
    No, the pistol mags are not removable. Also as a "heads up" as you can see from other responses there is a significant variation in the size of the pistol mag pouches. On my rig the pistol mag pouches are a good fit for double stack 9mm and 40S&W pistol mags but not for single stack 45ACP magazines which just fall out even with the flap pulled over them. This left me wishing that they had included some type of elastic drawstring set up for the pistol mag pouches since the elastic for the rifle mag pouches works really well. Rifle mag pouches fit 30 round AR15 mags well, but not AK mags and I would rate the durability as excellent for a ~$40 rig.

    I'm seeing a lot of pictures of this rig and reading a lot of comments of people that use Glocks, so I'm assuming the pistol mag pouches hold those no problem. But my question is how well do single stack 1911 mags fit? And if they do fit well how many can I fit in the pouches provided? Thanks in advance!
    6 Answers
    Great question, they fit my 1911 mags like a glove. I run p mags in the double ar mag pouches and 3 of the 6 pistols pouches hold my 1911 mags perfectly. The other 3 hold a multitool, wire cutters, and a folder. The mag pouches are snug on my 1911 mags, I can't imagine how tight they would be on double stacked flock mags with a full compliment of at pmags. I threw an extra pistol mag pouch on the side with an open to carry my 10round power mags for my 1911 since the cover on the condor rig's pistol pouches gets in the way when using 10rders.
    on June 4, 2014
    from Chicago, IL
    The magazine pouches were definitely designed for the glock or similar double stack magazines. I was able to fit 1911 magazines in the pouches. I attempted to get two 1911 magazines per pouch but there was not room. If you need more than 6 1911 magazines on your rig there are Molle loops that would allow you to add extra pouches to the left or right side.

    Single stack mags would fit fine, just a little loose but, you should be able to double them up and get 12 mags in the holders. 2x6 pouches.

    from Greenwood, IN
    I just fit 12 single stack 7 round magazines without any problems. I only needed to tighten the cover but that didn't take me long to fix. So that's 6 slots with 2 mags each. Now it's time to put my g22 magazines back. Hope this answers your question.
    on June 4, 2014
    from Las Vegas, NV
    I carry a Berretta PX4 9 mil and the mags are fat and fit nice and snug. So you could probably get (2) 1911 mags in each pouch. Everything is adjustable so you can do alot to it. The rig itself is great for the price. There is room for a medic kit and additional mag pouches (molle). Can't beat it for the price. Only thing is that it's a little on the large side. I'm 5'11", 190 lbs and it is a little loose on me when tightened all the way. Still very usable.

    from Miami
    This will hold single stack 1911 mags without issue. I use the 8 round power mags. You can only get one mag per slot as two singles are wider than one double stack glocks and the pouches are fit for a snug fit on the double stack

    This rig will NOT effect your draw from a standard belt/service holster. I wear this rig over my plate carrier and it still functions perfect. I would suggest buying it from another company though. This company is a fucking joke. I ordered a couple pouches to go with it and one came all torn up missing a zipper.

    on May 29, 2014
    from Wasilla, AK
    No problem with running a hip-mounted pistol as the bottom of the rig sits at about bottom of your rib cage, which can be adjusted up or down. There are about 4 columns of MOLLE on the sides. I'd say that as long as you adjust the rig to fit snug and don't mount any really thick pouches on your pistol side, you should have no trouble with your draw.
    on May 29, 2014
    from Somerset, PA
    Not at all! There's plenty of room between the rig and any hip holster you might own. Even with my beer gut I have plenty of spare room to safely holster and upholster my firearm. Hope this helps. Please you can always send it back.

    from Las Vegas, NV
    If you wear the rig as is without any molle gear attached you can draw from the hip no problem. However if you add anything bulkier than a single stack mag pouch to the side you may run into problems. I suppose if you wore the rig high enough on your body you'd be fine. Hope this helps.

    I think you should be fine. In my opinion it's a normal tan. I'm sure every manufacturer is a shade off though from the next. It's very quality for the price and I think you'll be satisfied. Anything else is most likely twice the price. I noticed some pics of it online make it seem more orange but mine wasn't that orange..I think it's the camera making it appear that way.

    I've gotten 6 AK mags in mine. It will not fit tapco unless they're smooth sided. I can fit circle 10's and regular steels. You do have to adjust the bungies and the vest feels like it is just a little too heavy with those mags, so I don't know how it would hold up in the long run. I'm keeping it for my AR15 setup and it is working just great for that.
