Went with the Defender carrier because 1: I'm a larger guy (6'1", 235lbs) and I wanted to be sure I could get a rig that'd fit comfortably and cover my torso fully, and 2: Being ex-military I prefer to have soft inserts to compliment my hard armor plates. This bad boy arrived well within the predicted delivery date and it fits like a glove! Easily adjustable, quality construction, and the coverage I desire in body armor. If you fancy yourself as an up-armored "heavy", then look no further than the Defender carrier.

Fast shipping and free shipping, top quality, I would order another without hesitation. Infidel did a good job with the condor plate carrier, I'm 5'8 and 270 and it fit me perfect!

I'm 6' 3" 270 lbs and this thing fits me like a glove. The top sits right at my sternal notch and the bottom sits right at my naval. I got the soft armor with it and it weighs about 11 lbs total which is nothing for a guy my size. I'm gonna get a set of the the large level IV plates when I have the extra cash. Couldn't be happier.

I'm a big guy. 56" chest. This is a good carrier, for big guys. It's comfortable. It takes a minute longer to put on than other's I've tried, but worth the extra few seconds, in comfort.
