    It is craptastic. Won't last long, build quality is pathetic, cheap, etc.

    FLYYE or Pantac would be much better. Or at least TMC or VooDoo.

    Condor makes cheap gear...only suitable for carrying ammo at shooting ranges.


    Galati Gear, TMC, VooDoo all make better and more quality gear than Condor does, and I think for cheaper, too.

    What is your price range? I was on a budget when I was buying gear too.

    VooDoo is Condor, boys, and I have a strong feeling that Galati is in the same boat.

    SFA,

    TMC gear at a reasonable price:

    Ignore everything that isn't TMC brand. Shipping is included in the price, but it takes a while to get to your door.

    I don't know. I've handled some VooDoo and their stitching is far superior to Condor... They're not FLYYE but they're not horrible.

    Galati>Condor. I've had both, the stitching in the Galati is much better, and it doesn't hurt that the Galati has better quality velcro on it.

    Well, my black Condor MOPC has held up for about 3-4 years. The stitching is starting to give in some areas BUT everything is still holding up. There's no MOLLE webbing coming off or anything like that. I've done everything from slamming into walls in CQB to running through brush and creek beds in woodland, to wading through a swamp in Jacksonville, FL at OP: Global Conflict 2. Some of my original pouches might need replacing soon, but for the price, I think it's decent gear.

    I've used some Blackhawk and Camelbak gear as well, plus whatever gear the Army issues out (not sure who makes the IOTVs, IBAs, FLCs, pouches, etc). I doubt Condor would outlast those, but for the price, I think it's worth a shot as long as you're not going to war with the stuff. I guess it depends on how hard you are with your gear. I play mostly CQB, so my gear doesn't take much of a beating until I go to larger OPs and events.

    Rumor has it the Condor gear in Multicam is of higher quality than the black, tan, OD, and ACU variants. The Multicam versions supposedly feature double stitching and a better fabric (not sure what it is, don't quote me on it but I've heard 700D, and even 1000D fabrics on their Multicam stuff)

    I was looking at the MOPC. I'm building it on vestbuilder.com so the custom vest runs me $200, but I only have $262. Basically I need the most cost effetient vest that I can get. Thanks guys.

    You're putting together a Condor vest for $200? Good God, put that to better use anywhere else. If you're set on multicam, then here's your best option:

    http://www.shootercbgear.com/product_info.php?cPath=22_50_158_167_169&products_id=5028

    Or this plus pouches:

    http://www.shootercbgear.com/product_info.php?cPath=22_50_158_167_169&products_id=5024

    Or really, anything else on this page:

    http://www.shootercbgear.com/index.php?cPath=22_50_158_167_169

    Or just about anything on this page, also in multicam:

    http://www.airsoftsmith.com/store/index.php?cPath=31_77&sort=2a&filter_id=53

    [edit] Here's a solid option in the US from a solid manufacturer and below budget:

    http://www.airsoftsmith.com/store/product_info.php?cPath=31_77&products_id=1963

    Spend another ~$40 on pouches and you're good to go. Buy them used and stretch your buck.

    Wow! Thanks for the links, I'm glad you found that first link for the carrier and pouches! That's probably my best option.

    Also is it adjustable enough to fit someone who is 5" tall?

    I linked to the medium size, but there is a small. It should be fine.
