"I just had my first game using this, and it protected my back and chest. I have a buttpack on it and it holds alot, but mobiliaty isn't so great. I like moving around and crawling around, but when I did it with this it made noise. I'm just going to get a rig. Still it is great, just not for stealth.
"I think this is great, there isn't much to say it works perfect for airsoft,and I love the hydration carrier. It is simple and it fits good, buy it.
"Nice its very light and you can adjust to fit nice and snug. It has alot of space to put just about any pouch configuration, but not too bulky like some vest. built in hydration carrier is nice and leaves alot of room in the back. I have both this vest and the condor plate carrier and they both have pros and cons
more space, the matrix LBV
built in carrier +
Higher quality and more solid molle webbing, the condor
condor does not have hydration carrier but is 10 dollars cheaper
condor has nice padding that also allows nice air flow between the vest
condor is a plate carrier so you can add ballistic plates
conclusion, The condor plate carrier is the better value as far as quality, versatility and price and having all load out on it feels solid, the matrix feels kinda flimsy since the material is very thing.
however, the matrix tactical system is perfect for airsoft plate carrier and padding is nice but overkill for airsoft alone, but the condor feels and functions for a more realistic feel.
overall its a good buy. I got it for decrative porpouses if anything, but it will work just fine, and the price isn't that bad,, if it was like 30 buck it would be a great deal, but at 40 its a good deal.

over for any MOLLE pouches you need and a hidden full size hydration
carrier. This vest can be customized for any leavel of gaming in minutes and

Field Review: For players that wants to customize your vest with ONLY
the most useful pouches, this is where you start. The hydration carrier is
built in internally, providing the entire back panel for other useful
accessories such as the radio or RAV ID tags. It is light weight unlike most
plate carriers that offers the same feature. Essentially, plate carriers
are not very useful for Airsoft and it generates too much heat and weight,
making this LBV one of the most ideal for Airsofting.
