"Can not believe there is no reviews on this yet, how long has this been on the market?! Okay, first i'll start out that I am 6'2" at 196 Ibs and this vest fit me perfectly. There was some confusion at first about putting it on but I quickly found out how thanks to the help of the employee at the superstore, (you definitely need to visit. I love it everytime I do), who showed me around this vest. I will be straight up that the front of the vest has multiple layers of the vest attached via velcro so you probably might not feel BBs if you get hit. There is TONS OF MOLLE all over. I got this primarily for a juggernaut load out and because I am a saw gunner. So I got this mostly for protection but the freaking MOLLE everywhere could be helpful down the road. There are a couple things that are a slight annoyance. The neck guard tends to not only restrict my movement of my head as I can't look all around with a face mask on, but it is also constricting slightly to my neck making breathing a little uncomfortable. But you can loosen the neck guard by clipping the straps on its sides to the buttons farthest infront of the neck piece. Also the shoulder pads are a bit awkward to wear but it quickly goes unnoticed one you get into the game. Over all, nothing big.

Pros:
Fits tall people (yay)
MOLLEZILLA OF VEST
Lots of protection
Lots of intimidation when combined with black smile mask, baseball knee guards, M249 SAW.

Cons:
Kinda bulky
Shoulder pads and neck guard kinda get in the way
Tends to snag on vegetation in outdoor fields
Lots of intimidation when combined with black smile mask, baseball knee guards, M249 SAW which makes you Public Enemy #1
Phantom Interceptor Modular OTV Body Armor / Vest - X-Large (Black)

The replica interceptor vest by Phantom is designed for those looking for a serious operator vest for hard-core simulations and Airsoft gaming. It is modeled and re-designed after the interceptor vest widely used by military personnel all over the world. Rugged and durable build with MOLLE webbing anywhere you need them.

History of the I.B.A. Vest: Interceptor body armor (IBA) is a bullet-resistant vest that was used by the United States Armed Forces from the late 1990s to the mid-to-late-2000s, still seeing some limited use as of the early 2010s. The Interceptor Body Armor design replaced the older standardized fragmentation protective Personnel Armor System for Ground Troops (PASGT) body armor system, introduced in the early 1980s.
The original Interceptor OTV variant first began to be issued to the U.S. Armed Forces in the early 2000s, and the first OTV carriers were first produced in the M81 Woodland camouflage pattern. Quickly, a coyote-brown variant was made for the USMC. Marines used OTV in both woodland and coyote-brown camouflages in Iraq and Afghanistan. In the U.S. Army, the Woodland camouflage pattern was then superseded by the 3-color Desert Combat pattern, followed by the Universal Camouflage Pattern.
