"just got this vest today, and i'm satisfied with it! It has a durable feel to it, the mag pouches will hold anything up to the size of one AK mag (tight fit), and the bag in the bag is very helpful for toting around miscellaneous junk...

Pros:
durable
simple
tight mag pouches
comfy :)

Cons:
SMALLER THAN WHAT IS SHOWN IN THE PICTURE! however, i am a small guy so it fits me perfectly (6ft tall, 150 lbs.)
also, it didn't come with the patch shown on the front :(

overall...it's a great buy for the price and would recommend it to anyone looking to buying a lightweight and durable plate carrier! :)

"This vest is made of some good quality stuff. I ordered it months ago, and the first time I wrote a review it somehow got screwed up and the servers didn't connect so it didn't post, but whatever. I'm doing it now.

I have now had this vest for roughly 6 months, and love it. It has a wide range of sizes, but if you're like me, or smaller, 5'8 and 125 pounds, it won't fit you very well. If you're smaller than me, find another vest, because this one isn't for you. I tightened both straps completely, and still had a small amount of play. Too much for my taste because I run around a lot and don't like my gear moving around. So I made my own SAPI plates out of wood, stuck em in the plate carriers, and it works great. I loosened the straps a little with the plates in and it fits a lot better.

The over all quality of the vest isn't bad, but it isn't the best. I would say higher end for the money. The material is nice and durable. The only real down side I found, is a couple strands that are hanging off cuz they didn't get cut. Easy fix, just cut em and melt the area to prevent it from happening again. I also found one strand that ran crossways somewhere it shouldn't have, so I cut that too. Overall, the material and build quality was pretty good. The MOLLE is also JUST alright. The webbing isn't off too much, but if you're mounting something that has more than 3 slots, you'll notice it.

The pouches included WILL NOT FIT 2 MAGAZINES WITH THE POUCH COVERS IN. With two magazines in, you won't need the pouch covers in anyways. They're nice and snug and won't fall out unless you jump from somewhere and land on your hands upside down so they fall out. Lol. I've played all my matches without them in and haven't had an issue. I only suggest the pouch covers if you play with 3 mags instead of 6. As long as there is always 2 mags in the pouch, you won't have an issue.

Pros:
-Cheap
-Good quality for the price
-Lightweight
-Durable
-Lots of MOLLE real estate for pouches and such
-Wide range of adjustability

Cons:
-Some loose strands; not an issue unless you have OCD
-With pouch cover, pouches with 2 mags is extremely tight and impractical
-Doesn't fit guys 5'8 and 125 pounds and smaller very well if at all
-PALS webbing isn't the greatest

All in all, I would say this vest is a pretty good starter/minimalist vest/chest rig/plate carrier. I like the small and light profile, as well as the ability to add plates to help rigidify the vest. Worth the money.

"Received this item today and I'm quite pleased with it. I'm around 125 pounds and 5'9" and at the tightest setting it fits me quite well; not loose, but not uncomfortably tight. The package includes the plate carrier, a triple M4 MOLLE pouch (Which is one unit, not three individual ones) an admin pouch, an EMT pouch weaved to the back and a Lancer Tactical velcro patch. They don't show or say anything about the EMT pouch, but I was pleasantly surprised to receive it. For how much you're paying, this is a great deal. Plate carriers without the pouches can cost 30-100 dollars, with the price of the pouches valued around 40 dollars themselves.

Pros:
-Great value.
-Sturdy Material.
-Includes all necessary pouches (And a cool patch.)
-Comfortably light and allows for ease of movement.
-Can hold plates if desired.

Cons:
-No coverage on the side, but that's not a major problem.
-Could maybe not fit if you're a weird size or shape?

Overall, I'm very satisfied with the purchase. As is the conveniency of MOLLE, the pouches are more comfortably placed than a crossdraw vest. If you're looking for a cheap and cool looking plate carrier that comes with the pouches, go with this one.
