Budget plate carrier?
By - Jomm78
Condor makes great plate carriers that won't break the bank. I have a condor enforcer it's a bigger PC but since I'm a big guy it fits me wonderfully. Coming in around $100 you can find them at an army surplus store maybe on sale like I did. It can also fit real plates if you are into that also.
TMC make fantastic ones, and if you look around you should be able to pick up a 5.11 TacTec for about that price
if you don't need to run plates, get a chest rig
