    Am looking for an Interceptor class plate carrier for a heavy class loadout. My budget is about $100 for the plate carrier and I will get the pouches myself.I'm looking for one that is in stock online if possible also I need it black.

    1. Black is a terrible colour to use on tactical gear, it confuses me how people don't realize this.

    2. You can't even get a CONDOR large-sized rig for that price, much less anything worth the cash.

    You'll need to either not go with your bad idea, or save up some more money.

    If you really want an interceptor replica, first save up and get the Pantac OTV. It will cost a few hundred, but like Grin said, you can't even get a condor interceptor plate carrier at the price you're asking.

    It does not have to be a plate carrier at all. I've looked in to the phantom interceptor and can't find many reviews for it. Any say on thatvone?

    Where are you looking at these Phantom products? Because Phantom hasn't been a full company since Flyye and Pantac split out and became seperate entities. I've heard grumblings that perhaps the "Phantom" products on Evile aren't actually Phantom.

    Yeah the one on evike. I haven't heard any rumors yet but that might be the case.

    Well, I really doubt that Evile is getting restocks from a company that's pretty much dead.

    I'd say just move away from the OTV/MTV/IOTV/Interceptor idea. It's really not all that great of a carrier.

    I get that, but they're also hard to find for any sort of reasonable price.

    I'd suggest a MARCIRAS (yes, that is considered heavy by today's standards) from Flyye, really. It'll cost you about $200, but will be good-quality and won't completely break the bank.

    Yeah, those are junk, not real Phantom. Phantom, at keast the company that made quality gear, hasn't been around in at least five years. What Evike is selling under the name Phantom is just the same crappy stuff they sell under the name Matrix.

    Condor is also crap. Basically, evike doesn't carry a single piece of gear worth a damn. You'd do better to search for gear elsewhere.

    I'm just looking for a mid quality vest for me to use that is an interceptor and so far the condor is that, plus every review I've seen has a satisfactory customer.
