    There’s a few guys rocking Condor PCs over here, and their stuff is coming apart at the seams under the weight of the Level 4 SAPIs we get issued. They could have delayed gratification and gotten a good carrier from a reputable manufacturer (there are none in China) that would have done the job a lot better.
    I’m a big fan of minimalist carriers, and the Ferro Slickster is my current rig. Have been wearing it daily for two years, both concealed and overt, and it is nothing less than amazing.
    I picked up a set of AT Armor STOP plates, and now my whole rig weighs as much as just one of the issued plates. Comfort, I haz it.

    I use 1” double sided Velcro tape to attach MOLLE pouches to my belt, and it works very well. It’s also CHEAP at $10 for a bigass roll of it on Amazon.

    An added benefit of the Velcro tape is that it helps anchor the pouches against the inner Velcro panel of my belt, which is something hard plastic belt loops and MALICE clips don’t do very well at all.

    Composite low profile plates are the bee’s knees, y’all. The AT Armor STOP/Tencate 2000SA plates are rated for M193, M855 and will take one round of 7.62x39 API-BZ, which is a pretty darn good rating for a half inch thick triple curve SAPI that weighs less than 5 pounds.
    They run about $500 a plate, but believe me, after walking around in a set of these things for the last two years, they are worth every penny.

    Hanging on a nail isn't going to tell you anything. Actually using a carrier will tell you how the drag handle holds up, how well the plate bags handle plate corners, how webbing holds up, how the velcro holds up...

    Pretty much this, there is a difference between SpecOps troops and civilian sheep dogs. I don't recommend anyone that's not using government money buy the high end stuff. Condor is amazing for the price.
