No complaints at all, other than maybe that the grid fleece doesn't cover the entire inside; but I think that may have been designed that way on purpose. It functions well either way. Very warm. I put this under the ELITE hoody and I can walk around in 30 degree weather without a problem.
I love the hoody. Absolutely nothing wrong with it. Simple, effective, clean.
Excellent fit and quality. I was originally going to buy the SKDTac/First Spear SST but this carrier does everything the SST does and more, is substantially less expensive, and includes as standard items you pay extra for with the SST. It also fits SAPI/EASAPI Large plates as well as 10x12 plates (I have both) with very little to no play with the 10x12s when adjusted correctly. For those of you looking at it online, some notes about the colors based on looking at them in person are probably in order. The Coyote Brown color is more muted in person than online. It almost or exactly matches other Coyote Brown items I have form several other manufacturers. The green is absolutely not Ranger Green. It is the brighter shade of green it appears to be online. Pretty worthless colorway unless you’re a LEO and it works with your agency’s uniform. Black is pretty standard black. I only have three qualms about my purchase: 1) I really think it should come with the crest rig buckles as standard but they are cheap enough that I can’t justify any deduction in the rating. 2) Can we please get a version in the grey color (Slate is what I think Condor calls it) in which some other Condor carriers are offered so I can buy a second? 2) It really should be offered in Multicam for those who need it. I understand that it costs more for the materials because of licensing but just make the MC version cost $10-$20 more like everyone else does.
Exactly what I was looking for at a great price. I mounted them to the velcro in my Viktos bag. A little snug with my 15 round mags but surprisingly easy to get them out when needed. I will definitely buy more from Condor
I was considering this or a Shellback. I opted for this based on price and the rapid open system. I couldn’t be more satisfied with the PC. It’s lightweight, cooler than I expected, comfortable, and holds my 10x12s with zero movement or shifting of the plates. Personally, I didn’t have to adjust anything as it fit perfectly out of the box. My only qualm is the lack of any kind of MC pattern; for this reason I almost didn’t buy it (deduct 1/2 star)!! I would buy another if a MC option became available. Also, LCS molle doesn’t sit flush on the back plate (deduct 1/2 star). I can see this correcting itself as soon as I mount anything or wear my flatpack.
I mounted them in my Velcro lined rear pocket of my Recon chest rig next to my holstered pistol. They work perfectly. Nicely made! Will accommodate various size mags if I choose to carry a different pistol.
Great plate carrier regardless of price. It is way more comfortable thelan my shellback banshee. Wore it for 6 hours on the range and it was no problem. The quick disconnect, (which i was worried would feel cheap) are way more robust and stronger than I anticipated. Go ahead and pull the trigger on this bad boy.
Exactly what I was looking for at a great price. Very adjustable,and very comfortable.
I will definitely be buying more from condor.
a comfortable feel, the moisture wicking does what it claims, when/if some of the colors are back in stock I would purchase more
Great Product! Bought it to mount my mags in my safe. Great Velcro and great retention.buying another set
Very strong, comfortable and easy to use when changing front to back, I like that!
I haven't had much of a chance to utilize the sling yet, but build quality seems great! The size is great, even though it's a little larger than expected. I like that it doesn't scream "tactical" too!
Works very well and looks good. I got it to wear as a stand alone when I have my duty belt but don't need much more. Also fits well under my button up shirts. For its price you should have bought one already!
Its the perfect size for most airline requirements for carry on luggage. The side straps help keep it at that size incase you pack bulky. Mostly I live out of this bag these days. It has many features that make it a very versatile bag.
The Specter Plate Carrier is on par with other minimalist carriers. My SAPI plates fit snug with no slop. Being minimalist the shoulder straps are comfortable. Stitching and finish are perfect. I have owned all of the other minimalist carriers and feel the Specter is as good as if not better than the rest. Definitely cannot beat the price.
Hope they add additional colors in the future. Otherwise don't change a thing. You have a winner in the Specter Plate Carrier.
These pants tore on the very first outing. Not durable at all. Will not be considering these pants for my department.
Well made with strong Velcro. Comes with removable top flaps but the retention is good enough that you don’t need them. Do recommend. After seeing the quality I went ahead and ordered the matching pistol pouches
It is light weight, my steel plates went in smooth and the retention straps kept them from shifting inside. Only reason I can't give five stars is that I can't stress test it, I am a bit barrel chested and there is not much room for adjustment and I can't actually wear it. Hopefully at some point they might come out with other sizes of replacement cummerbund like with previous models so I can use it.
Hands Down the best plate carrier for the money. I have the kangeroo mag holder and the tactical belt. Very happy with my purchase.
The Cyclone RS plate carrier is an excellent product. The quick release buckles make getting this thing on and off an absolute breeze. Currently running med size multicurve standalone IV ceramic plates and an additional III+ soft armor behind them, and the weight is distributed nice and evenly. Molle space is limited, even more so with the quick release side buckles,, but that's to be expected with a lightweight carrier. Wish the cummerbund was a little more adjustable but it's snug enough. Overall great product.
Pros: One of my favorite carriers so far , comfortable, versatile in setups , light weight , affordable & durable design
Cons: Colors sell out too fast lol
light weight, cool, the size is correct to what is listed
Was skeptical at first, due to other condor gear I've bought, but the cyclone plate carrier is worth it! The quality is there and most of all it's comfortable to wear for long periods. The price was very reasonable and the free shipping is quick. Highly recommend!
This cummerbund worked and fit perfect. I was running the clip straps before the switch an this made a world of difference. This cummerbund also works great with a smaller more minimalistic plate carrier setup as well. It allows you so much more real estate for the equipment, tech and medical supplies you will need to carry to be an effective combat fighter. My only complaint was that it doesn't have side panels for armor plates but for the price point I can't really be upset about that.
