"The construction of this vest is excellent and it fits me very well with plenty of room for adjustment (i'm very skinny but 5' 10"). The mag holders are great, a little stiff at first. The pistol mag holders actually hold my USP mags super well which has been hard to find in other vests.

My main issue with this vest is the cross draw holster. I think its pretty much impossible for me to actually draw my sidearm from it. its just at an impractical angle to reach. The sides of the vest can also come up pretty far, almost in your armpits depending on how you have yours setup. This also causes some issues with the cross draw. Its a shame because its a very nice, secure holster too.

It is a very well made vest, just a shame that the sidearm holster doesn't detach separately from the rest of the variable front.

I was able to get a grenade pouch between the mags and utility pouch for my tornado which is a great plus.

Id love to see different front plates sold with other options on them.

"I just recieved this vest today and so far I like it. I will probably give it another review once it's been "field tested". This is what I have seen so far:

-Light weight
-Built-in admin pouch with 40MM granade holder
-Comes with pouches

-Does not take plates
-Pistol holster hard to reach
-It's kinda short on me, but I'm 6'1" 185 lbs.

Overall great deal for the price.

"This vest is awesome! It comes with everything u need and is capable of changing all out to make your own custom load out. Velcro for the win!!! The side pouch can fit a whole can of 2000 bbs. The only con is the pistol holster has a pretty far reach. I would definetly reccomend this vest.

"This vest is awesome!! I got it a few days ago, and it was well worth the money. The vest is adjustable, which is great since I'm tall, and also, it fits rather snugly if you adjust it right. The holster is decent but takes some effort to get to. Overall. 5 out of 5. Great product.

"I just got this vest today and after looking at it for 2 seconds I could tell that it was of very high quality.

The magazine pouches feel real nice and it is very comfortable. The only problem I have with the vest is

with the cross draw holster. It is a really far reach and it is tough to get your pistol quickly.

If you have short arms and are looking to utilize the cross draw holster, do not get this vest!
