"The best-looking and functioning vest you can buy. This vest is better than any I have seen, whether they are $30 or $350. This looks like the real thing and the pouches it comes with are top-notch. I have used it so far in 2 OPs and it has performed well. I also bought the SAW mag pouch to hold all of the M16 and G36 magazines I use. Slight problems: the drawstrings on the pouches (very handy) are frayed at the ends but can be easily taped up with masking tape, and the rear MOLLE webbing is too high up on my back to use for anything but no biggie and the mag pouches are just slightly too small to hold 2 mags or a Green gas bottle. everything from the neck guard to the pouches can be taken off in a matter of seconds if needed. The pouches it comes with are great though and work every time. Looks realistic (I bought the Digital woodland) and the colors aren't really that bold. Comes with a neck and crotch protector (nice, but not always used), 4 magazine pouches, 2 grenade pouches.
PROS:
has very good color scheme.
Comes with free pouches!
looks great
is actually bigger than it looks (could be a con)
very secure triple velcro front with button reinforcement.
A secret map pocket.
neck and crotch protector (free)
Is inexpensive compared to other vests
has sling holders on the shoulders (no more slipping slings!).
Good cordura-like material (?)
almost completely modular with the attachments
overall a great and inexpensive vest.
Fits well (I'm 6'2'')
Digital woodland looks great
grenade pouches double as loose-equipment pouches (if you don't have 2 grenades)
everything fits well and securely and is easy to remove when needed.
CONS
Rear webbing almost impossible to use (too high up on back)
neck guard tends to chafe
drawstring ends are frayed.
i didn't buy it sooner
A little bulky
mag pouches are a little too small to hold 2 mags but too big for 1.
The pouches seem to catch on the bits and pieces of MG36 mags and can make it hard to remove them.
Friends tend to try to pick you up by the handle on the back.

Overall: BUY IT!

"This vest is amazing. It comes with a neck guard and a crotch guard but I took them off because they get in the way. It fits really well with a combat shirt(underarmour tank top with sleeves and collar in BDU material) Like the ACU set sold here on Evike.

Best vest I have seen on my team who have CIRAS and stuff.

Phantom Interceptor Modular OTV Body Armor / Vest - Medium (Coyote Tan)

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.

Features:

  • Heavy weight webbing covering entire vest for modular pouches
  • Accepts up to 11" x 14" ballistic plate. Front and back. (Plate not included)
  • Hydration system compatible
  • Built-in emergency drag handle
  • Adjustable waist tension straps on the sides
