After looking/researching for some type of cross draw vest for some time now. I decided on the Condor Crossdraw Vest. Due to quality and price points. I normally don't write reviews of products, but I was impressed with this one.

The vest is well made. Lots of velcro and lots of adjustments in this vest. I'm 6-2 200 and this vest fits me well. There is plenty more room for taking it up or letting it out if need be. The zippers, stitching, and fasteners on this vest seem to be good quality. Time will tell?
In reading different reviews and comments. I had concerns about the supplied holster and the size pistol it would carry. It's a nice size holster, with sufficient weapon restraint, to prevent it from falling out while on the move. It will hold my (.45 1911 or my .40 cal FNP) w/ no problems. I had read that the holster was loose or flopped around. When i recieved the vest. This was the case. By running the back straps of the holster thru another couple of molle straps. It took the slack out of the holster. There is no movement in the holster when you're on the move. I was surprised by the quality of the belt that came with the vest. Comparable to a Black Hawk operator belt but not quite as stiff.

I was impressed enough in this product that I ordered a Condor Plate Carrier w/ plates. (Bought from TAC). I know Condor was started as a supplier of 'airsoft' products. I am NO longer concerned about the quality of there products for real world applications. I am well pleased.

I bought this vest and am very satisfied with it. This is very well made and quite rugged. Solid stitching and sturdy materials. The actual vest is easily adjustable width-wise to fit over different weight clothing but I had to mess with the belt a bit to get it to fit just right. But that's not really a big deal if you've ever had to adjust an older style GI web belt, which by the way will fit below the vest's belt to add a couple of canteens and other gadgetry you may want to carry. After getting it all just right, the overall rig is quite comfortable even when fully loaded. I added a quad double-stack mag pouch (9mm), a military issue pistol holster (the old M-1A style that has the flap cover with stretch latch), and a fold up drop pouch; all of which I had already owned and have attached to the belt where they fit nicely. A .45 in the integral holster with four mags next to it, a full size 9mm in the side holster and four mags in the add on quad, plus on the right, three 30 rd AR mags. Throw in a handful of shot shells in the right chest pocket and I'm "loaded for bear". High quality and well worth the price. I got the OD but would probably have chosen the tan if it had been available then. But the OD isn't bad. Not real GI looking OD. When the SHTF, I'll be ready with this rig and some of my other "toys". I would recommend this if this style is what you are looking for.
