The only thing better than this vest is the customer service!

They have since updated the plate carrier to have a larger cummerbund to accommodate more people, When this restocks you should be able to get more options in that regard. I asked them about cummerbund sizes via email and they not only informed me of this but also offered to replace mine with the larger cummerbund. They care about their clientele! This is a low-profile, robust option and I haven't received a bad product from them yet. Condor may not be one of the high-dollar names, but they have made great strides in guaranteeing you get the best quality for the price you pay.

Love the weight, profile, and QD clips, just need to add cummerbund options.

I love it but can't use the inner pads for comfort due to the size being too tight on the chest. Luckily, I have triple curve plates, so it is still really comfortable, but warming layers tend to restrict my breathing too much for my preference. I recommend waiting until they introduce cummerbund options or an adapter for the velcro cummerbund before purchasing this if you like the QD clips on the side. I will invest in the velcro for now, but I want to have the QD to wear it with confidence near water.

Fits like a glove

If you are searching for a hydration solution that attaches to your vest Molle panel. You have found it

Real Low Profile Carrier!

This carrier is exactly as described and built real world tough! I have mine loaded with III-A armor and it fits nice and tight like I was hoping it would. I highly recommend this carrier to anyone who has been thinking about purchasing it, do not hesitate to snatch one up! Great price and Shipping was crazy fast and I honestly couldn’t have asked for anything more!

Best bag ever purchased

I did alot of research into a tactical lab topbag that would have all the room and necessities I needed. This bag goes above and beyond. I have a 15.5 inch laptop and it fits into the laptop portion perfectly.(remember the whole side compartment is padded and will fit if it's to big for the sleeve within). Plenty of room in the main compartment. And tons of storage all around. This bag is tough dependable. As very strong velcro closures. And a great mollie system. Also It is surprisingly ridged stands up on its own with a great textured bottom.

Drop crotch issue

The material was decent and they fit well in all areas except the crotch which was sewn low like the old 511 pants and would not allow full mobility. Unfortunately, I am flexible and want a tactical or training pant that matches my movement.


These are great. They fit tightly and securely. They also release smooth.
For the price you can't beat the deal.

5.11,helikon tex,pentagon,eddie bauer,First tactical,uf pro,name it!

The condor odyssey pants gen 2 are just so simple, classic, improved, lightweight, stretch ,ergonomic ,nice and engineered with care with a low profile operator in mind,that I bought them in every camo...I bought almost all Condor collection using the same lightweight material.I am wearing them while reviewing them.I wear them everyday and can feel the difference between any other brands on the very actual market.

Five stars

Excellent thanks

Surprisingly good

For the money I expected a lesser fabric and cut. I have worn these twice playing airsoft in field and forest. The first stitch on one of the pockets popped when I forced my hand in it. Other than that, I expect these to last. The fabric is a bit stiff and a bit thick, but I do not mind that because it is also tough and very protective when crawling over roots, or rough, rocky ground. I like the cut much more than the the 5.11 Ridge pant that I also have. Not exactly water proof but kept me mostly dry in light rain and laying on wet earth. The pockets are plentiful and good, bit there is too much overlap between them for my taste. They are secured by velcro or zippers except for the slash pocket, which I like. Over all I am very satisfied and I may buy another at a later date if I need a different color for an op. I am 5' 7" and wear the 30 x 30, which are true to size. Oh yeah the reinforced knees are great for crawling and kneeling. I do not intend to use pads in them.

Will buy again

I like the shirt, material dries real quick and it’s comfortable, wish they were a bit longer. The patch holders are a nice touch

Good knee pads

Fit in the pants good, comfortable and flexible, provide good protection for light duty use

Great pants

This pants are really well made and have a lot of great features, flexible fabric, tons of pockets, knees reinforced and ready for knee pads, just be aware the waist isn’t flexible so probably a good idea to order one size up, besides that loving them so far

Non bulky pouches

Exactly as I had hoped. Super slim and minimalist single stack mag pouches. I used it to organize M&P shield mags in my vehicle’s console vault (attached with hook and loop).

Solid Product

The pouch is well-made and I believe it will serve its purpose for years to come. Great job, Condor.

Good pack that could improve

I own two of these packs for bug out/emergency use. The general layout of the zippered compartments are very good, especially the admin(kudos to copying Direct Action), and the laptop/water bladder compartments. Also the materials are generally high quality, however the mesh material on the waist/shoulder straps could be of better quality and in the case of the removable waist belt, it should be of material that does not stick to the velcro behind the lumbar pad as you remove the belt. Also the shoulder straps should be redesigned to a reinforced yolk style system similar to the 5.11 rush 72 or 24 pack. The biggest issue, however, is the snack sized side pockets that are Way too small for anything but snacks. Forget putting any drink larger than a soda can inside these pockets b/c it will not fit. It would be nice to see the side pockets similar to the 5.11 Rush 72 or the Camelback BFM 100oz mil spec Crux (Even better). The main compartment is nice and large, but has no compression straps inside the compartment, nor any molle webbing for attaching compartment pouches, which would be nice additions. The zippers are excellent quality YKK, and the zipper tracks are reversed to help keep out dirt/debris. However it would be nice to see fabric coverings over the zipper tracks to prevent water from getting into the pack when it rains. Overall this is an excellent offering by Condor and if the above improvements are implemented I believe this would be Better than 5.11 and almost Any other pack design out there for its size.


I like this low-vis carrier. It fits well and serves its purpose. Only time will tell how durable are the materials with which it was made.

Excellent addition to Excellent vest

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.

If only it fit me better.

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.

Cobra Tactical Belt

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

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.

It’s OK

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.

Very well done catalog....Love the design of it, readable, great layout and colors.... and my son, Hans, is a damn stud in it. Lol...

Perfect pouch

Just what I needed and sticks strong to my inner safe door!

Good pouch

This sticks well and looks good in my safe door! I’ve been looking for mag pouches with a velcro backing and these are worth it.
