MODULAR OPERATOR PLATE CARRIER

Product Review (submitted on July 5, 2019):
I really dont want to knock this item at all whatsoever, I do like it, but there are many issues. Sorry if I jump from problem to problem here. I took a class that required armor plates and 8 mags minimal for rifle. Although I placed weight on my belt line, I still noticed a huge amount of fine pressure on my shoulders. I am 5 11" 165 lbs and fairly muscle toned, 3 hrs a week in upper body lifting a week, but not jacked or built so I hope I can make a fair image here. Straps could be wider. After 12 hrs in a class 3 days in a row I HAD to improvise. There was a major need to adjust the cummerbund as this thing flew and floated around me even with ALL plates installed. I had to modify quite a bit. Also the buckles inside the carrier were total nonsense. With side plates installed the buckles dug into my skin mo matter how I adjusted or maneuvered them. I had to totally cut the buckles off, over lap the cummerbund in the back, sew, and overlap the shoulder straps to bring the plate to my sternum notch. For added retention used carabiners in the back to help hold everything square. ASC cut plates will swing back and forth inside carrier. I glued velcro to my plate and stitched to the carrier to avoid this. For the smaller more fit guys, this carrier will need added modification. If this was more adjustable, and fit me without a knife and needle involved, this would have gotten 5 stars easily. This carrier may be designed for the ones fighting the t.v. in the living room. I really hope condor can make some updates to this great carrier, they almost had it but no cigar.
