"vest came in a couple weeks ago and I played with it for the first time yesterday. I'd recommend to anyone shopping for the whole 9 yards in one package for sub-$100.

PROS:
great fit: im 5'7" @ 130lbs so the vest was a little big on me but nothing I couldn't deal with. Regardless the vest was lightweight, sturdy and comfortable and after 6+ hours of wearing I have no complaints.

The all in one package: comes with everything you need, so you don't end up paying another 100$ in pouches afterwards. they kept my mags, and water bottle secured without a problem.

Sturdy construction: the fabric and the foam plates give the the vest a sturdy feel with good support for load bearing and with no excessive bulkyness, I was considering buying SAPI plates but reconsidered. This vest is also good with water, after playing in the snow and getting it soaked it dried much faster than my BDU and other attire

CONS:

Stitching: the stitching seems to be of questionable quality, only reason for 4 stars. The stitching on one of the cummerbund flaps ripped almost completely off during battle. ( I took it to a tailor and had them sew it back on and touch up the rest for $10, i would highly reccomend doing so)

Adjustable??: a con for me at least, I have yet to use the CIRAS functionality as I am afraid of never being able to figure out how to put it back together, I also can't figure out how to adjust the straps if there's a way.

"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

"==EXTREMELY GREAT BUY!!!==
==MY TOP CHOICE PERIOD!!!==

This vest has all the features of the other CIRAS edition products but has the MULTICAM pattern without the name and minor differences that the human eye really can't notice at regular camo price. The only difference is the contrast in colors and minute differences in shape patterns. The contrast can be fixed by just rolling in the dirt. It's just that easy!

"I just got this CIRAS vest in the mail today. Instead of writing a huge review, let's cut to the chase.

PROS

1. Rugged design, very durable
2. Great quick release system
3. Comfortable

CONS

1. The quick release is good but adjustments are a pain in the arse but its not a big deal.

Comments

Im rating 4/5 because mine did not come with a sling as indicated on the page which is a disapointment.

This vest is a great buy if you have the money, just be ready for a haggle when trying to adjust because the rope is too short.
