"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).

Material is fairly good
It is adjustable!

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.

"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.
-Has some weight to it (could be a con)
-comes with all the accessories
-great quality
-C.I.R.A.S capability
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.

"well this is the great plate carrier I've owned so far.

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 )

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

"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!
by Carlos M. on 09/26/2012
Is not To heavy
Pouches Are Double (M4 mags)

Seams Could be Better

In General Is Great
by Arthur D. on 08/24/2012
"this vest is really the best bang for your buck! it comes with almostall the pouches your ever gunna need.

holds up to 10 m4 mags!
lots of molle realeastate
good for if you want to go for a marine for recon loadout (thats what i did)

Heavy if your small
by marcos j. on 08/18/2012
"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.

"Best vest I've ever warn. Wore it in a huge game, and with a couple extra pouches, I was the running depot for most of my crew. After that, wasn't hard to rig it up for close quarters. Only thing I recommend is purchasing a good dump pouch and probably investing in one of the phantom ciras slings. The one I bought even came with dummy plates (cheap foam plates), so if you're worried about the sting of being hit, you probably won't feel it if it hits anywhere on the chest or back.

"I used this vest for the first time this weekend to a fallout op as a wastlender and it performed amazingly!
This is by far the best vest I've ever used. For the all the pouches on it and it only cost $99. This is the vest! I was worried at first it wouldn't fit me (Im 200 pound and 6 foot 2), but that was not a problem at all. If you are looking for a medium weight, easy wear, versatile vest, i can't stress enough, THIS IS YOUR VEST!
by alex w. on 01/14/2012
"this vest is great and i love it its just as good as the 200 dollar one that evike carries but cheaper, i have put a shotgun scrabbard and a radio pouch on mine. is is very complicated to adjust,there is a snap on the back you undo,then lift the flap on the back, and you adjust it there also on the sides there is the elastic and the molle is seperated. i tied both sides together with zipties and it fits me very snug. overall very nice vest
by Dylan T. on 12/28/2011
"Got this vest for Christmas of 2011 and it is really nice the ACU color is kinda darker than the pic but i liked that more the MOLLE is attached pretty loose so you have to take it off and re-do it and the pouches take some breaking in they are supposed to fit 2 mags but they only fit 1 unless you cut of the bunge straps going around it then you can fir 2 without any problem and the slide out really nice but not so easy they will fall out while you are running and the vest is VERY hard to adjust so there is an opening on the back to a cord so pull that and loop it to fit the height and the waist is adjustable so you may have to do that here are pro's nad con's


Nice quality
darker color (pro for me)
detachable you can re-arange things


hard to adjust
molle is loose requires time to fix
mag holders are tight so you have to modify to fit more mags

but i do recommend

"I just got this vest today and I love it. It came with everything it said it would come with and I added a hydration pack and it fits great and looks amazing. I also added a one-point sling and a couple of patches. It has room for all of those things and it look great. The only thing i am disappointed with is that I have no idea how to adjust it. I am going to look on youtube, though. I'm sure it's on there. So overall, I give this vest a 5 out of 5.
By the way, I might do a review once I use it in a battle.
