While DefenseReview (DR) was perusing all the latest and greatest Condor Outdoor Products (COP) and Condor Elite/Covered 6 products for 2017 at SHOT Show 2017, we noticed some very cool new combat/tactical clothing at the Condor Outdoor Products booth, and asked company rep Ken Oie to take us through them real quick (see video below). Mr. Oie started off by showing us the new Condor Short-Sleeve Combat Shirt and Condor Arm Sleeves (pronounced “sleevies”, or “sleevees”), and then finished up with the new Condor Tactical Operator Pant(s).
The new Condor Short-Sleeve Combat Shirt, coming out in Spring 2017, is obviously designed for warm weather, and it was developed at the request of Condor’s customers. It features ripstop (short) sleeves, with mesh and anti-abrasion material on the front body of the shirt. This 3-in-1 material construction looks similar in concept to the Condor Trident Battle Top, which also looks interesting. The Condor Arm Sleeves can be added for additional UV sun protection/coverage and warmth. The Arm Sleeves can be donned and doffed quickly.
Both the Condor Short Sleeve Combat Shirt and Sleeves look really good, and comfortable. DR will try to glean more information about the exact materials involved.
The Condor Tactical Opertor Pants, being released in Summer 2017, look very well-designed. They incorporate knee pad pockets specifically designed to accept Condor molded-injection knee pads, along with velcro fastener straps to since the leg of the pant tighter, to keep the knee pad in proper position during heavy activity/movement. The pants also feature thigh pockets with “dual-pocket access” and top-access receeding pockets, as well. The Condor Tactical Operator Pants are made from ripstop material (DR will try to find out what the material actually is).
Defense Review looks forward to obtaining some T&E/review samples at some point, but our initial impressions are very positive, just from seeing and touching the new products.
