This cheap vest ended up being a great buy. You can't really tell in the picture but there is an admin. pouch tucked inside, which is pretty cool (the admin. pouch doesn't have to be tucked inside). It has room for a map and/or field journal plus a pistol mag pouch and some patch realty. If fits well on me, maybe a little loose, but I'm a freaking twig so it should fit well on most people. The mag pouches fit two m-4 mags comfortably without having to use the velcro straps, which could give away your position. I have a little difficulty getting my G-39 mags out because the mag clips get stuck on the inside of the pouch. This is a good vest for field players, it has enough space to place all your necessary things, and it is light weight enough for CQB and can be less cumbersome by tucking away the admin. pouch or just removing it entirely.
-light weight and sturdy
-plenty of space for all the necessary items
-Not great for G-39 mags. I'm sure there's a way around it, I haven't looked into it yet.
Even if you don't like the vest, you get good pouches for less than what you would have paid for all of them separately
