      Had no problem putting in my hard plates but my soft plate would not fit in the front pocket. The rest of the vest looks very well constructed.

      So I'm a 6' 4" tall guy that is hefty. I have tried several supposedly adjustable or one size fits all vests. This is the first one that actually truly fit and didnt come up short. If you're a tall guy I highly recommend this product.

      The material and sewing seems to be of good quality. I think it would be too bulky for every day patrol but it makes a good raid vest or rapid response vest. I used soft armor front and back and a rifle plate in the front. I don't like a cumber bun attachment system but I understand using it for a one-size-fits-most vest. The shoulder straps are really long if you are smaller framed but can be adapted to work. So far I'm happy with it.

      Vest is nice quality, but I’d describe it as “one size fits all” Vest wouldn’t hold my soft armor.

      Reviewer: Randy F.

      I'm 6' tall and 265 lbs, and had been looking for a plate carrier that would fit me for a LONG time. Every carrier I had looked at was way too small, and these "one size fits all" carriers were anything but that. I ran across this Defender DFPC-002 model at a gun show in Reno, NV. I tried it on, and couldn't believe I finally found a carrier that fit me! I have my carrier rigged with Level 3A Kevlar soft armor and trauma pads underneath the Kevlar all around. 10x12 shooter's cut in the front, 10x12 full square in the back, and 6x6 squares on the sides. Compared to other plates I have, this makes for a nice, lightweight system I can use for my security gigs in sketchy neighborhoods. My other plate carrier was an US Military Interceptor model that was a bit small, and had no side protection at all. I'm very pleased with this carrier, and surprised at how comfortable it is. As far as putting it on and taking it off goes, it's easy. I slip it straight down over my head, and don't have to move or undo anything to get it on, and remove it by pulling it straight up over my head as well. It doesn't get any easier than that!

      I am 6' and 215lbs, I had to adjust the vest to the very smallest size and It's still too big. 10x12 inserts slip down low leaving your upper chest vulnerable, as the plate pocket is huge. If your a normal medium or large this vest is not for you.

      This is great plate carrier. I received it and got it set up the way I had it on the team. Went to the range last Sunday and it worked great. Did some prone work and moving and shooting. This is a very solid plate carrier and plenty of space to set it up for mission specific work. I love the Velcro tabs underneath for a real secure fit for your equipment. I wanted to say thanks for a great piece of equipment. The fit on his carrier is incredible. I would highly recommend this vest to my brothers out there. Thanks for great product and what your company has to offer.

      This is a fairly larger plate carrier. I’m having trouble adjusting the straps just right and getting it to fit. Holds my departments soft armor just right and there is plenty of space for all of my pouches. Overall not a bad plate carrier just too large for me.

      Reviewer: Chanison

      Got this for my 10X12 plates. I am 6.1 and 190lbs. This plate carrier fits perfectly. I do have everything taken up almost all the way so if you are thinner than I am you may have to do so extra adjusting to make it fit. However it will fit most anyone. It carries very comfortably and is super durable. Really the only con and reason I did not give full 5 stars is that it is heavy. There are higher end (more expensive) vest that do just as well and are lighter. Having said that though I am very pleased with this product and for my budget with this project it is perfect. I would defiantly recommend this to anyone.

      Very high quality construction. I removed the shoulder pads, adjusted the straps all the way and its still way too big for me though. The description said Medium to XXL. I'm 5' 6" and 165lbs. I wear medium in every type of clothing/gear I own or have ever been issued.

      For the price, its an extremely well built carrier. Lots of MOLLE and Velcro for add on's and to keep everything in place, comfy when its on and have had no problems with mobility when running my loadout. The only downside is that its still too big. Im 5'10 190 lbs about a medium build and even fully adjusted the front plate sits too low. Also to get the cummerbund to fit snug you have to adjust it to where the side plates are too far foward. Great quality, just needs more adjustments for us smaller guys

      Reviewer: C. Perisho

      12/5/2016

      Very comfortable, easy to adjust, and tons of room to attach all your gear. My one gripe is that, even at 6'1", 200 pounds, the carrier feels huge so I had to really dial down the shoulder straps to get it to fit right, which left the end of the straps pulled down through the whole section of velcro PALS webbing, so I had to cut about 4 inches off the straps. No other issues though, I would definitely recommend this carrier, and a bunch of my friends have shown interest in it themselves after seeing mine.

      Just a little to big for me....I'm 6'4 200 lbs an it doesn't come up far enough on my body to cover what it needs to. Even with the straps adjusted as far as they can go. But overall everything about it is great

      Reviewer: Eric Ginder

      7/25/2016

      No complaints. The price is right for what it is. It fits good, accepts 10x12 plates and soft armor. The stitching is good and I recommend this to anyone on a budget. I'm an ex paratrooper and wore a Point Blank IBA for years. Though the Condor isn't as well made, it's 1/5 the cost and it isn't made for multiple deployments into theatre. It is good for the average person or guys that want to be "tacticool" playing airsoft..... I do suggest not going cheap on plates and soft armor.

      This product is very durable and well made. It can hold a lot of gear. The only downfall to the vest is that it is hard to get on and off.
