    Was thinking of getting a chest rig from them. I have not heard about them. Is it decent quality or should I save it for the airsofters?

    My experience; bought their 36" rifle bag years ago. Complete and utter junk. Every zipper pull simply broke off, I replace the pulls with REI zipper cord pulls, then the sliders broke into pieces. Cheap Chinese garbage. :steamed:

    Have had nothing but good experiences with their stuff. It's inexpensive but it has held up to the crap I've put it through. Their newer stuff seems to be better quality than what they were putting out a few years ago.

    Can't speak to the old stuff. The new stuff is NTOA tested and approved. I have a plate carrier of theirs that is great. I don't wear it every day, so I can't speak to that level of use, but it rides around in the trunk like a champ, and the 6 or so times a year I put it on, it's comfortable.

    I have seen some good stuff they make. Some of its 1000 denier nylon. I have seen some crap zippers and buckles that were plastic junk.
    I have a plate carrier and pouches they make and its good.

    I have a Condor DFPC and really like it. Mine has been subjected to dirt, rain, and sweat while being loaded down with 40 lbs. of plates/gear and all the threads are still holding. I've been training with it the past year, about once a week, and it has never let me down.

    It's mesh-lined and made of 1000D cordura and is as durable as carriers twice the cost. I've never tried any of their other gear from them, but I like what they offer. The velcro, cumberbund, and MOLLE webbing are straight and well-stitched.

    I mean, it's no LBT 6094, but it is very durable and well worth the price I paid, $100.

    They make 1 decent plate carrier and 400 pieces of junk.

    (I have the Plate Carrier and it's OK)

    How rigged does your chest need to be?

    That is a question that each man must ask himself.

    :wow:
    WOW!

    I'm male so I don't think modifying my chest is going to be much fun.

    I was thinking of getting a low-profile rig with 4 kangaroo M4/pistol pouches.

    Still thinking about it. I'll see if there is one in the gun show tomorrow.

    Thanks guys.
