"This chest rig is amazing! This was my first chest rig and I'm really happy about it. I am 13 years old and about 90 pounds and 4 feet 9 inches and it fits great. It does not sway when I run. The only time it moves is when I jump but since there's not a lot of jumping in airsoft it's not really an issue.

Nice fabric
MOLLE space
Shoulder straps have pads.

Pre installed mag pouches (Could be a pro)
LOTS of confusing straps

All in all this is a great buy for the price and I really recommend it.

"First off, I'd like to say that ever since o first started airsoft (4 years ago), I've worn a full vest. Not a PC, but a vest that comes with all the pre-installed mag pouches. You know, the ones that are really bully feeling? Anyways, I was sick of having a vest because it was heavy and it was dragging me down. I wanted something affordable with good MOLLE space, but with atleast 3 M4 pouches. Something that was lightweight, and wouldn't make me sweat and overheat like a vest. And that just so happened to be the MCR5. I love this rig. This is my first time wearing something other than a vest, and I'll never go back. This rig provides comfort, and great upgradability.

-Preinstalled pouches
-Great compatability with other gear.
-Fits all sizes (I'm 5'8" and 117 lbs and it fit perfectly after MAJOR adjustment)

-Preinstalled pouches (this is a preference for most people, but not everyone wants this)
- Confusing to adjust at first. (There is ALOT of excess strap that you can't do anything with. It's like this thing out of the box was designed for a 300 lb man.

These cons however weren't enough for me to lower to 4 stars though. This is a great rig, through and through.
I highly recommend this thing for anyone who wants an affordable and quality rig.

"I bought this rig a year or two ago, works great. No rips, nothing. I use my M4 and USP mags in it perfectly.

All in one.
Some MOLLE webbing on the sides.

Not really customizable.
Hard to go prone with rig full.
When running if not strapped correctly, the rig will sway and running your strides.

"I bought this vest a while back and it works well but i have a few gripes with it. When it is fully loaded if you lay in the prone your body arcs upward because there is so much gear stacked on top of each other. after only minutes of getting it out of the box the pals webbing on the shoulder came unsewn. Also, if you are a slimmer fit like i am the straps dig into your neck and when the vest is completely tightened, its still loose on me so i have to wear a soft armor

nice color
many mag pouches
hidden admin panel and 2 extra mag pouches (velcro on sides)
takes a beating in the feild

weak stitching in places (re enforce it)
arched body in prone position
doesnt fit smaller framed people
mesh on straps scratches neck raw

"Wow, what a great piece of tactical gear, Condor has done it yet again. This chest rig has everything you need to be out on the field without going overboard, some say simplest is best and it's hard to disagree once you strap on this rig. Very light weight, comfortable, durable, and economical, of course it doesn't offer much protection since your whole body is exposed but combined witha sturdy bdu and you'll be fine. I highly recommend this chest rig to players who like to run a lot or not care for lugging around too much weight and great for an lmg loadout.

"I am not the fast mover on my team, I am actually the exact opposite. However, I bought this chest rig for my local indoor field, and let me tell you it is a fantastic rig. It is nice having the six M4 mag pouches, but 6 pistol mag pouches is a little bit of overkill for me. I use a KWA M9 PTP, and the mags are pretty expensive, but if you use a pistol with cheap mags, well good for you.
There is a little bit of space on the side, which I use for a map pouch and the Condor sidekick pouch (which is a fantastic piece of kit) and it is a great combo. I keep a pocket knife on a strap and a dump pouch on the back belt. The rig is fantastically comfortable and is great with the x strap and small belt, but cannot help you for protection (obviously).
Let's do the pros and cons now:

Small and slim
Six M4 and pistol mag pouches
A good amount of extra molle straps
Padded shoulders
Nice coyote color
Very breathable
High quality material

It could be a little taller
Less pistol mag pouches, maybe a suppressor or flashlight pouch

And that's about it. It may obviously be different for you, but these are mine. For only 25, definantly buy it. Do it. Now. Right. Now. Unless you use an M249....
