Recon 19D Review by TOM MAC (Alabama Birmingham) 11/18/2009 6:52 PM
Just bought one of the black ones and I had to have it as soon as I tried it on. This is the best jacket Ive ever seen. Its even set up for your personal communication devices. (Posted on 7/3/2019)
Firearms Instructor Review by Bart Dunfee (Georgetown, TX.) 1/10/2010 7:35 AM
I received one of these jackets as a Christmas present from my wife Amanda. We had been looking at similar products when we found this one. Most of them were at least twice the money as the Condor. I have been out to shoot with this jacket twice now and I feel that it functions perfectly. Water beads up and rolls off this jacket and yet it still seems to breath well. The cut is good for shooting sports(not so overly long at the waist that it interferes with drawing or re-holstering a side arm) and the sleeves hang close to the arms without a lot of unnecessary bulk. An added bonus of the material used is that it is nearly silent in motion. Most waterproof shells make a lot of noise as you move. The placement of the pockets is perfect for those that wear tactical vests or plate carriers. Most if not all are still accessible to the wearer. The MP3 pocket works well and it is nice to be able to route the cables thru the jacket interior. The one thing that sort of bugs me is that cold air seeps into the jacket @ the under arm zippers and you can really feel it when wearing a short sleeve shirt as a base layer. No big deal, now I just wear a long sleeve as my base. All in all this is a very nice jacket that will perform as well if not better that it's more expensive competition. Thanks Condor for another great product!! (Posted on 7/3/2019)
Chief - Law Enforcement Mountain Operations School Review by STEVEN R.TOMSON (SPOKANE, WA) 1/15/2010 4:06 PM
I wore this jacket during our last Basic Mountain Operations Course (Jan. 9 - 14, 2010). It preformed very well in wet weather with tempatures just above freezing. During 3 hours of steady, light rain and sleet, it shed water well and I remained very dry. The jacket vents well, is very quite in the woods and has lots of functional and well placed pockets that hold mags, knives, trauma and survival gear very well. The jacket dried very quickly hanging inside at 65 degrees F with 100% humidity. This jacket is outstanding and a very good buy. (Posted on 7/3/2019)
Range Safety Officer & Instructor Review by Jason (Central California) 5/20/2010 11:19 PM
I have used this jacket for 6 months now. Use it as a daily coat and on the range. Works great overall for most uses. It isn't extremely warm stand alone, but works great as a layered system. Water beads off for awhile, but I still sprayed some WP spray to keep the water beading off longer. A couple notes: 1. They fit consistently one size small. I wear Med./Reg. BDUs and the Large Condor jacket was the best fit. 2. Not very long in the waist. Pros and Cons to this. Works great for the range, but for those with a CCW or can carry a weapon off duty, this jacket is a little tight and short so it doesn't offer the best concealment of a weapon. (Posted on 7/3/2019)
Regular guy Review by Mike (West Georgia,USA) 5/28/2010 7:26 AM
I purchased this jacket for a light weight jacket in the winter and for layering with other items when needed. I must say I really like this jacket. It has done what it says it will do. I wish you would make one in multicam!! (Posted on 7/3/2019)
Yellowstone Review by SC (Texas) 6/28/2010 11:39 AM
Purchased this jacket for Yellowstone in early June. Couldn't have worked better. Yellowstone in June is rain/sleet/snow/sun and any combination there of. This jacket layered with a fleece layer kept me comfortable and dry. Didn't overheat when the sun came out. 5 stars. (Posted on 7/3/2019)
Nice and Functional Review by JC (Chicago) 11/6/2010 10:48 AM
I bought the XXL based on the recs of some other reviews. It fits a little big but the length is perfect. I am 6'2" 45" chest 35"sleeve 36" waist. An XL fit me as well but the length in the torso was not there for me in the XL. So the XXL fits well. Performance is good as well. I have a TAD gear Stealth Jacket as well. There are definitely differences but nothing crazy. The materials on the Condor Jacket are nice. The material is not as stiff as the TAD gear but both jackets keep the water out and keep your body temp comfy. I have had the Condor jacket for about 3 months now and have no compliants. Once it gets really cold here I am going to test it more in the snow and see. But so far at about 1/3 the price of the TAD Stealth, the Condor does a great job. I bought this jacket for around town, hiking, fishing, snowboarding. So far it has made it in some chilly not so dry weather (Posted on 7/3/2019)
Great Jacket for Police Review by Dan M. (NE Ohio) 11/28/2010 9:01 AM
This jacket is a great buy for the money. I have very few complaints with it. One complaint is that the sizing runs small. I am 6'3 215 lbs and i regularly wear an XL. Before purchasing the jacket I read reviews and watched You Tube videos on the jacket, and from what I gathered the jacket ran small. I ordered a XXL and it fits pretty good. The overall jacket length is great (it also has a drawstring on the bottom, so you can sinch it closed and keep yourself warm). The arms are a little long, but the extra length comes in useful (you can adjust the Velcro straps on the wrist over your gloves to keep the snow/wind out). With the arms being a little long the shoulder pocket zippers are a little hard to unzip (this may also be because the jacket is brand new) The lining is a nice fleece and the overall thickness of the jacket is some what thin (you may be able to use it backpacking), but with the wind-breaking material exterior, the middle breathable membrane, and the fleece on the interior. I used the jacket during work last night and I was pleased with it. The temperature was about 15 degrees. The jacket is just roomy enough that you do not feel restrained when wearing a Kevlar vest and multiple layers. The drawstring waist allows me to keep my duty belt accessible while wearing it. I have found the rear tube pocket great for keeping a traffic vest, gloves and face scarf. The loop Velcro allows me to affix my city's patches on the arms while working, and remove them while I wear the jacket as a civilian. One complaint is there being no interior or exterior storm flap. In windy situations I can see the wind cutting through the front zipper. I also have found the armpit zippers not that useful since the front zipper is bi-directional you can cool your self off a lot quicker by pulling the bottom zipper up and the top zipper down. I think the jacket could do without the pit zippers, but I am not a clothing designer, so they must be useful others (Posted on 7/3/2019)
Security/Medic Review by Chris (Alabama) 12/9/2010 2:24 PM
Sizing is definitely a little funny, in most of my other mil-spec gear I wear an XL, I'm 6'4 and 260lbs and the XL in this jacket was too tight and too short. I bumped up to the XXL and it was still a little short, so I bit the bullet and went with the XXXL and the length is perfect and gives me a good amount of room through the chest, it also makes it an ideal CCW jacket. It's very warm and the high collar is great for blocking the wind. (Posted on 7/3/2019)
vet Review by deathrange (Lower Lake, Ca) 12/26/2010 4:34 PM
Great jacket! I have two of these. For some reason both are tan in XL-fits just right. I had a professional tailor remove the hood on one. More comfortable. Can we get factory directions on how to fold the hood back the way it was out of the package? It feels like an inner tube around your neck, however with the jacket zipped up it's not so bad. Keeps you warm. Refolding the hood never feels the same as it originally did. The zipper around the neck lost some teeth and had to have the tailor add stitching. My newer backup jacket, well let's just say I'm never taking out the hood.. Worn it in just below freezing with just a tank top under a t shirt. Feels warmer then my NATO gortex parka. (I want an OD one too). The tan tends to pick up stains. Also, is there a recommended spray to prevent staining and repel water? Will the silicone spray damage it? I hope not, I used it. It works good and darkens the tan. Looks killer. Why is one softer then the other? (I have two so I have a basis of comparison. Nice job, but too many Irish pennants hanging out. Yes, I will end up with three of these, but this is just my feedback. (Posted on 7/3/2019)
