I use this vest for training and cardio outside of work. The vest was great and comfortable for most training applications but would bounce and rub when doing cardio (jogging) in it. I decided to upgrade it with the cummberbund. I have a pretty short torso so the slim version was a great option. Often cummerbunds large enough to accept side plates rub in my armpits. This thing met and exceeded my expectations. The vest is infinitely more comfortable while running and feels more secure during tactical training. This is a no brainer upgrade for you VAS plate carrier.
I bought the Vanquish RS for its quick release and versatile modular platform. I have used Condor products for many years now for both professional and personal use. I liked that the Vanquish armor was low profile and didn't have excessive extra material like some of the previous Condor PC's. However, I didn't like how the LCS material would buldge up and not lay flat at times, also the Cumberbunds only come in one size for the Vanquish RS and I'm not the biggest of guys yet the cumberbunds seem to be almost maxing out when I wear the Carrier. If there were options for cumberbund sizes for a more comfortable fit then I would have given five stars. Overall I like the best But I may have to try the Older Vanquish vest till some size options become available.
Bought this belt to go with the Condor slim battle belt for SWAT. Both are excellent belts for the money! The only reason I gave the Cobra belt 4 stars instead of 5 is there needs to be more Velcro on the end of the belt to fasten it and keep it fastened at the right length. However, I have not had any issues with it staying the right length or in place so far, but I have only used it once at training. I highly recommend this belt! Especially pairing it with any battle belt from Condor. This belt fits true to size. Big fan of Condor products. Made very well and don’t have to take out a loan to afford them.
Nice shirt, very functional and definitely all weather. Wish it were made elsewhere other than China and would be willing to pay a bit more. Other than that, a good product.
Expected metal zippers, but they are all plastic, which cheapens the quality and appeal. However it is comfortable and functional. I’d be willing to pay more for metal zippers and made in just about any country other than China.
