Looking for something higher quality but similar to the Condor Rapid Assualt

Post by JF89 » Fri Mar 08, 2019 1:27 pm

This is the Condor Rapid Assualt chest rig. https://www.amazon.com/Condor-Rapid-Ass ... B009SAZ7W4


I am looking for something similar but higher quality, I really like the layout of it. I own one exactly like the one in the link and really like it.
Anyways, any help is appreciated.

I would start with Eagle or Tactical Tailor. See if they meet your needs close enough. If not, we can look around a bit more.

The surplus TAP (tactical assault panel) is somewhat similar, in that it has integrated mag pouches with a flat, MOLLE front. Very affordable last I checked.

The Esstac chest rigs are also fairly similar.

Eagle is also known as SKD https://www.skdtac.com/Chest-Rig-s/202.htm Solid reputation as far as I'm aware.

It feels like Eagle Industries is trying to get us excited about a brand re-launch or something.

https://eagleindustries.com/

I would look at Ebay or similar for their gear. I have stuff by them from the 90's and early 2000's, and I"m pretty happy with it. It was handed down to me.

Also, here are a couple of TAPs....

Have you looked at HSGI gear? I have their small chest rig, it worked for what it was intended for. Has the condor not held up for your intended purpose? I think Blackhawk, Hazard 4, and Haley Strategic also make a carrier very close to the one you posted a link too.

Let us know if you decide to expand your search to other models of gear too.

Also, thanks Chaos454. I didn't know Blackhawk made a similar model. Blackhawk is good and their products seem reasonably priced. Here are two places to buy:

Eagle and SKD are unaffiliated.


If the OP is really looking for just a chest rig, we could throw out brands for days, if OP is actually looking for something similar to the rapid assault (integrated, open top mag pouches with lots of PALS real estate on the front) then the list is pretty short, and most of the brands suggested do not offer a similar model.

SOE gear has a few, but very expensive:
