MODULAR OPERATOR PLATE CARRIER
- Product Review (submitted on July 5, 2019):
- I think that this is the BEST plate carrier for any of the following criteria. Someone who wants... 1. The lightest, sleakest carrier that is strong enough for heavy, steel plate armor without being too bulky. You can remove the cumberbund and wear this thing relatively discreetly (depending on your build and clothes) under a jacket or hoodie. AND... 2. ...A rig that's also stout enough to upgrade/build up with A FEW extra mags/pouches. REMEMBER, this IS NOT a heavy weight, hard usage, duty rig...at least NOT with steel plate armor and certainly NOT with added side plates. It could be done but I feel that it would push the comfort level and shorten the durability of this rig if you went all out commando with it. But you can still put all that you NEED on here without being an excessive "gear ninja". 2. An in case of emergency/bump in the night rig, trunk rig, etc. that's actually easy to put on. 3. A rig that can be used with hard armor, OR soft armor (again, technically it has room for hard and soft but you'd be pushing it to use both), or none at all. 4. Great, functional bells and whistles like the cumberbund pouches that offer terrific storage when not used to carry side armor. The thick shoulder pads with buckles on the back so that they don't interfere too much when handling a rifle. And the belly admin pouch that can easily be used to carry 3 rifle mags (even a couple AK mags) especially when you add the insert sold by Condor for this purpose. TRUST ME: IF YOU BUY THIS CARRIER THEN GET THE INSERT TOO! You'll love it & never want to buy a carrier that doesn't have a belly pouch again. It's an economical game changer that is a much better option, in my opinion, than external pouches molled to the front. I love mine & consider it to be simple, practical and comfortable. I think it's perfect for the average person. Don't plan on going to war or hiding in the woods with this thing. But it'll stand up to a tussle or two while keeping your kit intact.
