MODULAR OPERATOR PLATE CARRIER
- Product Review (submitted on July 5, 2019):
- Great value for the dollar!!! I have abused this product in the both Afghanistan and Iraq (Not at a cushy static site either). It performed well under fire and in and out of vehicles. Also, it didn't hinder my movement while carrying a fully loaded 3-day assault pack up and down the mountains. As great as this plate carrier is, I find there are 2 areas of improvement I hope your company remedies. I will address the issues and the soulutions I used to overcome them. Here goes; the first issue is the amount of velcro on the front "flap." I had to sew more on there so that the entire "flap" was secured and curling up at the corners. That was an easy fix. The next thing was more crucial. I found the cumberbund lacking in rigidity. My combat load, and other accessories, would begin to sag outward. So I undid the stitching and placed a hard, yet flexible (10" x6"), piece of plastic in the sides, and re-sewed it back up (I refered to the USMC's cumberbund). Once I improved these two areas, the plate carrier out performed similar and more expensive products from other BIG Name companies. Condor, you will make more money and have a much more loyal customer base by continuing to sell your qualiity products at honest, realistic prices. To hell with those other "by-my-name-not-my quality" companies. Respectfully, Vic.
