USMC Style C.I.R.A.S. Type Force Recon Tactical Vest (w/ Full Pouch System) - Dark Earth

35 Customer Reviews

by Christopher C. on 04/09/2016
"Just got this the other day. Ill do pros and cons in just a sec vut first imma talk about it. The vest has an amazingly good ammount of molle space. I of course added my own personal touch to it because who wouldnt. I have managed to rearange all the pouches to fit in good "tactical" locations. The I.F.A.K. (induvidual first aid kit) Is a really good addition to the vest as well. Ive managed to put it to good use. Its not really a med pack persay but it fits my nvg camera really well. Ive added a hydration pouch to the back and removed the two shingle mag pouches. I kept the three shingle ser on the front. Basically this thing has unlimited customization ability which i have found hard to come by.
on to the pros and cons

Pros
really large molle space
lots of pouches
very good build material
very very comfortable
full customuzation

Cons
only issues ive had with the vest are being able to adjust the size because of how many size tabs are on it and that not ALL the molle is the same width. Most of it is the propper one inch width but on the edges ive noticed the loops are a bit smaller leaving you unable to fit stuff on.

Thats all for this review and i highly recomend this vest to all of you airsofters working on a USMC impression

"I have had this plate carrier for almost 2 years. It fits well, has plenty of MOLLE real estate, and provides good padding. For those wondering if it will fit them, I'm 5'10 and 220lb. It works especially well with the condor hydro back panel as a MapPack. My only gripe is that some patches of MOLLE are too small; this is remedied by cutting the stitching.

"One of the best vest out there!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! It is a solid vest. You do not need to worry about the stitching coming undone on the molle straps because they are sewed on really good, and it displaces the weight really well.

Pros:
-it has a waist strap that secures the vest so it is not bouncing all over the place
-the velcro side straps give it a wide range fitting sizes( I am 5.6 and weight 150lbs and it fits me no problem)
-comes with all the essential pouches you need so you do not have to spend extra money getting some
-the pouch quality is phenomenal (they have been abused and beaten and no fraying or cuts in the stitching what so ever)
-you can put real or imitation sap plate in it if you like
-The vest quality is superb (the areas that are sewed on the vest stayed sewed, I have put a total of 30lbs of stuff on it and the stitching
did not rip or show signs of strain)
-It carries weight well ( your shoulders will not be aching after wearing this all day because the waist strap distributes the weight off your
shoulders)
-it has a lot of molle space

Cons:
-None really it is a great vest

For the money you pay for this vest, you get the most bang for your buck! You will not get ripped off like other cheaper vest that have the same thing but made with shoddy quality. I would save up your money and invest in this vest if you are starting out and do not want to spend a fortune on a vest with out pouches but want that mil-spec look or you have been airsofting for a long time and need a good strong vest.

"great vest! comes with everything as shown. I was worried about the stitching because others had problems with it. The stitching is fine and the only problem is that there are loose strings everywhere. just cut them off and if worse comes to worse and the stitching goes bad its not going to be hard to sew it back on. it holds 5 m4 mags or more if you get more pouches are put it in other pouches. It looks great and the molle makes everything fit tight.
Pros:
Looks awesome
nice color. dark earth as advertised (looks great with navy seal Emerson fast helmet)
Has a CIRAS cord to quick release at a moments notice. (can be a con but dont tell your friends it exist)

Cons: The rear flap to access the side pads and cord is small. (

"First off I would like to say this is a great vest/plate carrier. I took a gamble and got this vest using a g36 and the double m4 pouches fit the g36 mags perfectly I am also 5'8 and 208 pounds and this vest was able to go smaller and bigger if needed be. I personally like my plate carrier or vest snug on me so this was great. The stitching isn't t best in the world, the vest isn't compromised by this it just seems they left a little extra stitching on. Also anyone who is adjusting this vest, to get it to stay the perfect size, I used zip ties for a great fit. All in all great product and I'm very pleased with my purchase

"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
by Daniel O. on 10/17/2013
"Great vest. Fits perfect. Comes with just about all you need.
by yaser s. on 09/07/2013
"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.
by Cristobal C. on 08/16/2013
"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
by Justin S. on 05/14/2013
"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 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

"Amazing best that all I have to say. Look amazing feel amazing and the best part the pouches are removable.

Cons a little hard to adjust

Pros heavy can be a con for some small players
pooches are removable
Really easy customize

I've been playing airsoft for a while and plate carriers is something I've always have bad luck on till now the pooches are removable which is amazing is heavy and doesn't get hot too much and if you're going for a look well your here.
