About the Condor Gunner Plate Carrier
Are you looking for a low profile plate carrier? The Condor Gunner Plate Carrier is your solution.
The Condor Gunner Lightweight Plate Carrier is a minimized version of the Quick Release Plate Carrier. Due to the minimal nature, this plate carrier is physically smaller in size and is less busy looking. The features the same durable 1000D construction and features a comfortable fit when hosting medium or large ESAPI plates. The cummerbund is adjustable and has MOLLE loops so you can mount additional pouches on the side. The shoulder pads are anti-slip patted and are removable. The shoulder straps are adjustable for broad shouldered individuals. The interior is lined with padded mesh material to increase breathability. Quick release pull tabs with velcro webbing are present
Do you need a tactical vest? You don't absolutely need one to play but if you are carrying extra magazines 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.
Condor Outdoor is a great brand for airsoft players who want the feel of something high quality and durable without being too expensive.
