Weak Front Zipper
I just received my Condor Phantom. Nice design, good value, good fit. The zipper teeths are small and looks very weak. When i close the front zipper, the bottom part of the zipper are openning. I don't know if i got a lemon but a heavier bigger front zipper could have made this perfect.
A Good Jacket for the Value
I purchased this after reading about it and the first generation Soft Shell, the Sierra. This version does not have the hood or all of the pockets that the Sierra had. I actually like the look and the cut of this one over the Sierra style. I did order a XXL, as I usually take an XL, but read about the smaller sizing. It is the same with this jacket as well.
Just recieved my Phantom jacket. I own the original Condor soft shell jacket and I expected the Phantom to be identical less the hood. Unfortuntely, the Phantom seems to be lighter weight and does not have all the pockets the original had. Had Iknow this, I would have spent the extra $10 and bought another original and cut the hood out. Despite my disappointment, the jacket is still good quality at an affordable price. Just understand it is not identical to the Condor original soft shell.
Very happy with this jacket. For the money it is a great value. I own the hooded soft shell as well and I like this jacket better. The sizing on both is the same I ordered one size up. I got a xl. I am 5 11 and 200lbs. The fleece is also a great value.
