The Condor Outdoor Soft Shell Jacket is a lightweight, weather resistant that is versatile for all types of weather. The outer layer is made of polyester with many pores in it that are smaller than a raindrop but bigger than a molecule of water vapor. This means that it keeps water out while still remaining breathable to allow moisture from the body to escape. Other features includes a lined stand up collar with storage space for the hood. There are two shoulder pockets, each have a 4x4" Velcro panel for patches. There are two internal pockets and two large chest pockets. On the left forearm there is a small zippered pocket. On the back is a double zipper pocket for glove storage. Under the sleeves are ventilation zippers, on the elbows are a double layer of fabric for reinforcement while crawling. This is the perfect solution for a tacti-cool look that won't burn a hole in your wallet.
Just got this today and it is very nice looking with all the pockets and the real-estate for patches. Matches my ACR too. It feels so comfortable, not too thick like a sweater or leather jacket, not too thin like a wind breaker. The hood is perfect for those annoying rainy days when you need it. The adjustable cuffs are really useful too.

So many pockets

So many pockets cause you just want to put things in them all just for the heck of it
I cant rate this better than "good"

Opened up the box, was actually rather surprised. Unpleasantly. The color is much greener than you would expect. The pictures here make it look more alpha gray, so I was expecting something gray that I could use for a Texas winter - to blend with the dead trees better. Turns out it looks slightly more like the Olive Drab one on this site. It's probably just the lighting they used for the pictures, more than any mischievousness on the part of ASGI, but just a friendly heads-up to potential buyers.
On to the jacket - the quality is pretty sweet for an $80 knock-off of the TAD version. It's water resistant, as described. The pockets are great, and it's very warm. Easily does the job of a fleece jacket. There are some loose bits of string from the sowing they used, but in general I don't get the sense that the jacket will fall apart any time soon.
For those of you deciding between a TAD Gear one and this OE Tech one - you don't need the TAD one. This will suffice. Will all that money you save, you can get a couple extra mags, or just save it for a rainy day. This jacket will do the job you want it to, and will make you look great! I've already gotten several compliments on it, just walking around outside.
Pockets - internal and external
Quality/dollar is great
When hood is folded down, collar gets rather fat - just something I'm not used to.
The color is not what I expected judging by the pictures.
Some Q/C issues with the loose bits of string from making this baby.

This jacket is amazing! We are having a huge rain storm here ( been going on 2 days, expected 2 days more) and i walked around in the rain with this thing on, BONE DRY! Very breathable with the "Pit Zips" and the back pocket/vent, so it is good for about 70 degrees completely vented, and about 40-20 completely zipped up, add the Base 2 layer, and you got it good for 5-10 degrees. This jacket is also good for a Task Force 141 loadout, or a Ghost load out, looks almost exactly like it.
NO clammy feel when you are wearing it in rain/cold
Great Color, (its about the same as the medium shade of color on A.C.U'S)
Hood is awesome.
