"when i first saw this armor, my mind went to what i do best: carrying big guns, and holding down others for my team to move in. plain and simple. THIS RIG, however, is supposed to be for CQB/light riflemen with regular stantag mags. but, this vest does have some flaws, but the advantages outweigh most of the issues.

light, comfortable
can shrug off BB's/ don't go home looking like a pincushion
cheap for what it is
rather daunting looking (6'1 guy with LMG, 4 color jungle tiger stripe, this vest, and a helmet) why is it a tactical advantage? you draw fire from your teammates to you, giving them a moment to breath and move in.

when raising your large weapon to aim (note: this is not a issue with M-4 or other 'light' weapon) the vest can raise with your shoulders and make staring down a M-60's sights a bit hard
MOLLE is crazy tight, so i was sad when my 3-mag pouch couldn't slide on so i could carry more batteries for the LMG
i kinda wish it was made...well, not as cheap. can't complain for 80 bucks, and its not a deal breaker, i just wish it looked like the one in the picture
also, when it coems in, a plate or 2 may be bent out of shape. just un-bend them.

all in all, it is certainly a light rig, but can function well for all senarios if you get creative. ive used it as a gunner rig, rifleman, CQB, and a marksman for a short while. after you get used to it, it is fine.

"Just tested out the vest, works great, can't feel a thing when shot, had to call my hits based on sound lol. Covers the lower mass area better than other vests. No velcro on it for patches but I bought velcro strips and looped them into the top molle to add the Umbrella patch I also got (right in the center)

Pros: looks damn cool (wow factor), can't feel a thing, very adjustable, light weight, able to be very mobile, paired with the right sweat wicking BDU or tact shirt it doesn't feel so hot, works very well with a molle belt for more lower mass coverage, great for CQB or indoor

Cons: not as much molle but meant for light load outs anyway, no velcro for patches but easy $5 fix, molle is very tight so make sure whatever you molle into the bottom part that you like it (fast mags are in transit so I'm running no mag pouches on it yet)

All around, great investment vest for light load outs, molle belt is a must
