"Bought one of these a while ago. Used it for a few airsoft games but mainly used it for Army Cadets. Thing's held up fine under realistic war like conditions and is comfortable to wear. Mag pouches fit a range of magazines I tried in them. AK, G36 and STANAG mags all fit without a problem. Comes with two slabs of velcro on the inside that are easily adjustable to keep the carrier on nice and tight. Instead of the weird cloth sling shown in the pictures, it comes with a nice bungee one point sling that kept my rifle nice and secure. (I personally don't use one points slings as I don't feel they give enough freedom of movement but its a nice thing to include) It also comes with two large utility pouches instead of the canteen pouch. (Cheers Evike!) The smaller one fits a standard US canteen very nicely, while I found the larger one fits standard British Army mess tins with space to spare.
Radio pouch is a bit too small to fit a PRC-349 however, but thats not problem, the issued carrier that comes with the radio fits over the carrier very nicely. Also rather handily, the straps above the shoulders of the carrier are velcro, meaning they can be opened and things such as comms wires and other single point slings can be threaded through very easily. These were especially useful for my camelbak, the tube could be fed through and the camelbak itself sits comfortably on the back, as long as its not covered in mag pouches or something.
Overall a very nice, if a bit pricey, plate carrier, I would definitely recommend it to anyone whos got the cash and wants a decent carrier for Airsoft or anything that needs it really.
-MOLLE surface area of a small country to attach all your mag, dump and grenade pouches and still have room.
-Very well made, high quality Cordura that has stood up to trees, dirt and BB hits with ease.
-Easily adjustable from the back panel, so make sure it fits before using the MOLLE covering the bottom back, just above the arse.
-STANAG Mag pouches are fantastic and fit magazines they weren't even meant to.
-Other pouches included are all very useful.
-Has a quick release tab thing on the front that, when pulled, breaks the carrier down into separate parts, allowing your bleeding, bullet filled corpse to be pulled from it by the paramedics with ease! Just hope your teammates don't find out or you'll be rebuilding it in the safe zone for half the game.
-The wire thing that holds it all together is like steel rope covered in plastic tubing, This frayed slightly at the end and gave me a pretty nasty cut. Held a lighter to the end of the wire and it sealed up fine and it hasn't happened again.
-Im 6'2 and 205lbs and at the second smallest settings this fits me fine. The Velcro straps on the inside make sure of this. But this is under full battle dress of T-shirt, Shirt and jacket. If you're any smaller than me, go medium.
Oh lord thats a lot of words.
