About the Condor Stowaway Chest Rig
The Condor Stowaway Chest Rig is a wonderful piece of gear for those who need to carry a lot of things but do not want to be using a full plate carrier. The difference between a plate carrier and chest rig is that a plate carrier is bulkier and designed to carry armored plates. They don't breath as well since they cover more of your torso compared to a chest rig. The chest rig on the other hand is a simple harness setup and brings with you what you need for the fight. In airsoft there is no real need for ballistic plates (or so we hope) but many people run plate carriers anyway for looks. People who are into the milsim life tend to want to look like a cool guy operator doing direct action hence the popularity of plate carriers. The chest rig is more for the minimalist type of person. Scout type players can also enjoy a chest rig for its diminutive size, especially if you see yourself as the type of player to crawl around and play sneaky.
We recommend a chest rig for new starting players due to the lower cost and having enough gear on you for exactly what you need for the game. Plate carriers are definitely more customizable and modular but that is added cost up front which might be tough for those starting out. This is a good start for getting geared up and not losing equipment on the field, not to mention something that can enhance your gameplay experience.
