About the Condor Cyclone Plate Carrier
Are you looking for a low profile high plate carrier? The Condor Cyclone Plate Carrier is your solution.
The Condor Cyclone plate carrier is designed for law enforcement and military. This is part of their made in USA lineup which includes items meant for legitimate first responder use. The Cyclone accepts plates measuring 10.25 inches x 13.25 inches. It also has padded shoulders and adjustable cummerbund for added comfort and the best fit. There is heavy weight MOLLE webbing present on the front and back of the vest which provides a modular system of attaching pouches and identification patches.
Do you need a tactical vest? You don't absolutely need one to play but if you are carrying extra ammo or that expensive pistol of yours, you can appreciate it being easy to access and also not losing any of that expensive stuff in the middle of the game. This has happened to all of us at the beginning when we think playing with just a hoodie and jeans is enough. Mags always fell out of our pocket and it was a bummer not only when we needed them the most only to discover they are gone but also come after when you realize you just lost yourself $20-30 in magazines or worse your pistol out on the field. That is the main reason to get one. It's not so much the protection although there is some protection value there too but it's about keeping things organized.
The blessing and the curse of MOLLE gear is the limitless possibilities for your setups and the ability to adapt based on one platform but the curse is the fact that you will probably be tinkering with your loadout to find your optimal setup for a given situation. We find it to be a love/hate relationship because when you play for a bit you're always trying to make things more convenient and more accessible so you can get faster reload times and fumble with your gear less. With modular gear you aren't married to a particular arrangement of pouches so you don't have to start over if you want to make a minor change.
