The Condor Defender has to be the best plate carrier I own. This thing is PACKED with MOLLE webbing, so you have hundreds of ways you can customize your load out. I find that this vest FITS VERY WELL on larger built players, however, not so well on smaller built players. The velcro that Condor used to hold thing thing together is incredibly strong.
Shoulder padding can be opened to run a sling through it.
More MOLLE space than you know what to do with.
Keeps you warm. Good for winter/ cold climates.
Accommodates up to a Large size SAPI plate.
Velcro-ed MOLLE for mounting patches or name tape.
Keeps you warm. Not so good for summer/hot climates.
The velcro on the cummerbund is so strong that it's just easier to put this on like a t-shirt. Arms up and slide it down. However this does kind of move the side panels out of place so you need to pull them back into place.

For: Condor Outdoor Defender Plate Carrier (Tan)
When looking at the pictures of this plate carrier I was not sure if this would be good quality, but I went ahead and bought it anyway. When I got it I was surprised on how well made this was. Very durable and the material is sturdy and I have don't have any doubts this will break any time soon. Over all this is a great plate carrier.
Some What Heavy (Could also be a Con)
None other than weight, Although it's more of a personal preference, for me I like the weight of it, makes it feel that much more realistic.
