Carrier Comparison

Recommended Posts

In the market for a new carrier. Important for me is a nice wide mole section on top so I can run both my pistol and my radio on my chest, so that rules out most JPC and DCS type carriers.

 

Choosing now between:

WAS RICAS

WAS Raptor (any experiences with this?)

Viper Elite Platform

Condor Gunner

Condor Operator

Condor Exo

Condor Enforcer

 

Anyone currently using or previously used any of the above? Feedback?

I run a condor gunner mate, great all rounder rig. Loads of space 

 

this is how how I run mine,

You’ve got your pistol way over to your left, do you think there would be space for a radio in there too, if you shifted the pistol 2 or 3 spaces over to the right?

What radio do you run? I think the trouble you would have, is if the pistol moves over the draw becomes awkward. 

 

My radio usually goes in a pouch on my back with a mic and ear piece

Why do you need to run your radio on your chest? Do you not have a PTT and some kind of earpiece headset?

Yeah I wasn’t criticising, was trying to figure out the thought process behind it so I could try and help👍🏻

I bought the MK2 version of this one I have on; it's one I borrowed for the feel of a PC hence the reason it doesn't fit so well. Quite expensive 🙄🙄 but the one I have has had a couple of compliments and comes with everything you need!

The MK1 is more expensive too.

Has it got pockets for plates? Top loading or bottom loading? Study design? (I don’t want to lose a toe if my plate falls out!)

I like having the radio on the front where I can switch from a team channel that sometimes gets set up, to a squad channel on Total War games. So my PTT is on the radio itself too. I sometimes have an earpiece, but it falls out when I run so unless I’m being super stealthy, I just let it come straight from the handset. Talk button with my left hand, can draw my pistol with my right. My holster is brilliant and easy to draw from, so I’m not worried about scrabbling around with push buttons and awkward wrist bending to reach it - I just grab and go.

It says it's compatible with British issue plates as well as others. Not sure about the loading but I can get back to you later with answers and pictures if you like? I won't be carrying plates in it so it's something I've not looked for or noticed on it.

Hmm strange. British Osprey plates are a very different shape to SAPI and E-SAPI. I have heavy concrete-filled dummy plates to turn airsoft days into fun fitness days.

I have the same radio, want me to move it all about so you can see what you’d be working with

Could I suggest if you can get it for your radio a fist mic and a relocation cable? you could still access the PTT easily, would take up less space than the radio being chest mounted and having a relocation cable means you can still access the radio easily to be able to switch between channels without it being in the way.

@AshOnSnow here are the images

It's bottom loading with velcro keeping the bottom closed.

There's additional padding which I have removed to show. 

There's another compartment where the plate goes and the plate is held in place by a strap that goes under the plate and through a hoop. The hoop and strap velcro together and form what seems a strong bond like all the other velcro on this PC. 

The space for the plate goes right up to the line on the last picture and right across the body. 

 

Any other information just ask mate.
