DEFENDER PLATE CARRIER
- Product Review (submitted on July 5, 2019):
- I ordered this based on the reviews and (mostly) the price. My main use for this vest is anytime we have something that my duty vest might not be enough (barricaded gunman or felony warrant entry to name a couple). I also bought several Condor MOLLE pouches for the rig. I got the OD Green and use my last issued soft body armor with 10x13 steel plates.It's heavy, but it will stop a 7.62. I don't plan on running someone down, thats what the rookies are for. Great price for great products. You can put these side by side some of the more expesive rigs, and you can't tell the difference. Looks like great quality. With ammo pouches on the front, it can be tricky to put on, with cummerbund removed, it can go on in a flash, but theres no way to attach it at the side w/o cummberbund. Pros: Price, Quality, several colors, Easy to set up, comfortable. Cons: 1) Make the shoulder more adjustable, I'm 5-9, 180, and I would like it to sit higher over my duty belt. I have the straps all the way tightened, and the velcro cover over the buckle, still need more. 2) With the cummerbund removed, there is no way to secure the vest, atleast I havent figured it out. Thanks Condor for a great product.
