This is a Condor brand "compact plate carrier." I purchased it along with two of Infidel's 10x12, Level III armor plates. The carrier was well-matched to these plates. Easily adjustable to the wearer's size and the plates fit perfectly inside well-sized openings with secure Velcro closures. This carrier has multiple attachment points for magazine and other type of pouches; however, I am using it for a quick "throw on" carrier for home defense so the ability to don it quickly and only close one attachment point was important. Note - the plates and carrier weigh in at 20 pounds so while not light, it is manageable and will "do the job" if ever needed! Plus - I wear it when I walk/run for exercise (as one of my Warrant Officer friends in the Marine Corps always did!). Go for it - you won't regret it.

This carrier is made by Condor, and as is with most Condor products, it's decent quality for the price, but not a well thought out or comfortable piece of kit for serious users. The plastic shoulder clips get in the way of the rifle butt stock. It causes the rifle to slide off the clip. This may not be an issue for large framed operators, but smaller frames will find it very unnerving. The side clips are get in the way of the sidearm draw, as the elastic is very weak, and the plastic clips are huge, making an obstacle for a smooth draw. This is with an expensive drop holster designed to not get caught up on a cumber bun. The plate openings are not the same shape as most plates, so they will slide around, and the weak elastic side straps don't hold the carrier to your body. Bottom line, don't get this carrier unless you're on a tight budget and don't really care about comfort. I gave it 2 stars, because it's a good price, and it will carry plates. It just won't be a plea

Exactly what I needed for extra protection while on the job. Holds the IBA perfectly. Is comfortable wearing over my outer vest. Again great quality and service. Have been telling everyone in my department about this company. I will continue to do business with this company.

Boy oh boy was i glad i ordered this carrier, im short and a tad bit portly (fat) and have had a hard time finding a plate carrier to fit properly but after talking to Chad on the phone and describing my body type he suggested this one. Can't believe how well made it is for the money.
