"it took awhile for me to get this vest when it when to restock i would say it took about 5 months but it not evike fault but at the price for this vest is made pretty good and it was worth the wait i say

"Ok, i recieved this vest a month ago, and i can only say, its AMAZING!!

Pros:
Awesome looking
Realistic weight
Lots of molle
Pouches included
Can insert SAPI plates on both sides

Cons:
Might be heavy for some
Kinda hard to find the first the adjustment for the velcro straps, it's at the lower back and you have to pull it up and you will find the adjusment :)
You haven't bought this yet


GET IT!!

"Nice Vest! I've always wanted a CIRAS, and this one was the only one that was affordable.
Pros:
Looks cool
Comfortable
Much better than my previous chest rig
Tons of pouches, although I use only the mag and radio pouches
Lots of MOLLE, tons of ways to customize.
Cons:
Heavy, but the weight distribution is nice
Wish it looked a bit more authentic
The quick release system was not working out of the box, had to glue it in place.
Overall, it's a great vest, totally worth it!

"Okay so I really like this vest and would love to have it. But heres the thing. Im 6ft tall and 135 pounds would this fit me and is it good quality. And does it have any waterproof capabilities.

"Just got this vest yesterday with the sapi plate inserts. I got the large sapi plates which fit fantastic but if you want the width but less length then your best bet is to go for the medium sapi plates. But both versions of the sapi plates will work. Holding it will feel a bit heavy especially with the sapi plates but very light once you out it on. I'm 6'1 and 215 lbs and it fits perfectly. Personally I would not recommend this vest for someone who is skinny or a light weight but don't let me tell you what to do. All in all this is an awesome vest to get...

Pros:
strong, durable material
comes with all the pouches you see and they detach if you want to change them (MOLLE)

Cons:
None.. n hopefully not ever lol

"what a great vest ive bean rocking it for awhile now and im loving it. im a pretty skinny person at 5'11" and 130 pounds so i did have to put custom holes in the system to make it tight enough but its the first vest that ive found that at-least had that ability only con personally was that my two pistol mag pouches were connected and not separate. also the pouches hadn't been properly woven on but that was a quick fix

"I've had this vest for 6 months worth of games and I love this vest, it stay on the body very nice.

Pros: -fits very snug and nicely
-come with everything you need
- affordable but worth the money

Cons: -the pull cord is very tempting for friends to pull
-the plate sizes are weird but you'll figure it out if you make your own

"This vest is actually fairly light. Holding it with both of your hands seems as if its a bit heavy, but once you wear it.. it feels really light! Mine included 2 soft plates inside (You can take them out if you want).

Pros:
Light
Material is fairly good
COMES WITH ALL OF THE POUCHES THAT YOU SEE
Comfortable
It is adjustable!

Cons...
Pull cord. (minor problem)
It breaks the moment you pull on it. You can fix it by bending it at a 35 degree to 45 degree angle and taping the angled part. Then you want to bend it down as much as u can (bring it to 0 degrees) and put it into the pillow type handle. Is a hassle, but after doing that, the emergency pull cord will work :D

The seams... (will turn into a problem after a while)
I used my vest in a whole day of skirmishing and some of the seams are ripping apart... If you can taylor it back together, then you should be set.

Size. (can't really do anything about it)
Its a little big on me. Im 5' 7" / 5, 8" and about 125 - 130 lbs. And it moves loosely on me. I may modify it so that theres another hole on the side strap (theres a panel on the back of the vest. Unbuckle it from its button and lift the panel up. There you can adjust / put your vest back together if you pull on your emergency pull cord.).

Button (easy fix)
One of the buttons on my vest decided to derp out and basically fall off of the vest. A way to fix this is by buying some E-6000 industrial glue and put a small amount on it and let it dry for 24 hours. After doing that it should be fine


All in all... This is a good vest too get. Its confortable, amazing and IT COMES WITH ALL THE POUCHES YOU SEE. It does start to have some wear and tear but some of it you can fix easily. Another note, once you get the vest and open the litte panel on the back, the cord system is probably going to be in a weird tie. Just undo the tie and then just loop the cord in. Do that and your vest should be fine.
BUY IT NOW.

"This vest is awesome, I got this as a present (although I had picked it out myself) and it is exactly like I was hoping, awesome quality, very easy to customize. This vest is heavy. Probably not heavier than other molle vests but if you are coming from one of those cross-draw vests like I had a while back, this will feel a bit heavier so don't be surprised, but honestly I like the weight and durable feel that it gives. This comes with all of the pouches and pockets that it talks about and obviously the vest so it is an amazing buy compared to the systems that usually run about $200 for similar setups. If you haven't owned a MOLLE vest before this is a great vest to get you started and you can always get different/unique pouches later on and modify this vest since it has plenty of room. Make sure you watch the video on youtube by Evike on how to weave your molle also because I didn't know how to do it before I watched and it made the vest much more secure and snug!

"This is a great vest it took about a week to get to my house with standard shipping and right out of the box it was great. Also I am 6 ft 2" and about 220. Iwould not sugest this vest for someone under 180lbs. and 6ft.
Pros:
-Has some weight to it (could be a con)
-comes with all the accessories
-affordable
-great quality
-C.I.R.A.S capability
Cons:
Some of the molly is not perfectly lined up.

Over all I give this a 5/5 and highly recommend this to any player anywhere from new to the sport to a veteran.
by An T. on 02/11/2013
"well this is the great plate carrier I've owned so far.

Pros:
It feels great when you put on
the weight is about right
looking good
good material even though it made in China
the color is also give you the professional look (dark khaki )

Cons:
a little big for small player (even you adjust it, still bigger for small player)
1 pouch can only fit 1 magazine (not exactly like what it said in the product

well ....... it's worth for the money. Really happy when I saw the box at front of my house today _3
by Eduardo C. on 02/11/2013

"I got this for my CQB load out and so far, love it.
Had to adjust it a bit because I'm a small guy, but it's comfy and easy to put on and take off.
Best bit about it, is it's molle. So as soon as I figure out how I'm going to re-customize the gear, it'll be easily done!
