Condor Phantom Softshell Jacket


The dedicated shooting jacket.  Some people have their favorite +$200 tactical, bells & whistles and all.  I chose to go the cheaper route and picked up a Condor Phantom.  It's no 5.11 tactical, but it has features that make it useful at the range and makes me look a bit cleaner and more professional at the bench.

What others are saying? "The quality of the jacket was far better than most of the bad reviews have you believe. For the price you can't go wrong. I have used it extensively in the Pacific North West and it has stood up to some of the worst conditions it has to show here. The only downfalls are like previously noted; - The zipper could be re-designed alot better, it is hard to zip sometimes, and impossible with gloves. - The waist area should have a draw string, because wearing this jacket makes it seem like I am pregnant. The sizes do fit small... " - Condor Outdoor

Our Rating:

+ Lightweight and material helps regular temperature in average conditions. + Water Resistant + Front Chest pocket perfect for phones - Armpit vent zipper has no mesh/breathable material keeping from rubbing up against zipper.  Irritating, literally. - Sizes run small, should have ordered up one size.
