"Great vest! Looks great, fits well, and the shoulders have kept the bb welts at bay! the only con I have for it is that I'm tall (around 6'2) and the vest is a bit short, but not laughably short. All the pouches are perfect, and kept the mags for my rifle locked in tight, but not so tight I couldn't get them back (FAL magazines). The hydration pouch was very handy as well. Overall I love the vest and would definitely buy it again!

"I was going to buy this vest online but I was sceptical about its size. I heard in other videos that the vest was really small and you had to be careful on height and weight. Since I live near the evike warehouse I decided to go down and try the vest on myself. I am 5'7" and 130 pounds, I'm not a small guy but I'm not that big either and the vest felt snug on me. The vests length went down to half my stomach. If you are taller than 5,9" 5,"10 you probably will find the vest small.But the small size makes the vest really snug and makes it so it doesn't wiggle around when you're running. This vest is made for smaller people so if you're a bigger guy looking at this vest I would recommend something else.

"Bladder pouch in the back is great, neck guard is helpful. Also has optional crotch protector and detachable shoulder pads. Awesome vest.

"This vest is moist and flavorful. five stars!

-makes you look fantastically bad-a
-carries everything you need in an average game
-I can see it fitting on almost anyone

-As soon as you put it on you are wearing a miniature oven and your the turkey
-straps are tricky to figure out and are difficult to put on by your self
-neck piece kinda uncomfortable

small side note when you put this on don't put it on as tight as you can this is a vest not a corset. put it on loosely so you can still move and breathe comfortably. all in all great job Evike. I am one heak of a satisfied customer

"After using this vest for a couple months, I must say this is by far the best vest I've ever had.
The vest itself fits very snug and secure, or at least for me (5'10", 130 lbs) and the "shoulder" (more like bicep) pads are a nice addition and really give this vest a unique and intimidating look. The chin/neck guard also definitely add to the appearance factor, and are quite functional and have quite literally saved my neck on more than one occasion. The mag pouches are a little tight but have fit every M4 and AK mag that I've run across. They're also useful for holding other things, like flashlights, extra batteries, etc.
The vest itself is very sturdy and is surprisingly quite agile and doesn't impact movement, and can actually be very quiet if the bicep-pads are removed. The hydration pouch on the back is a nice touch, and can squeeze in a smaller HPA tank, but I wouldn't recommend it.
Overall, this is a very functional and well-built vest, and is definitely worth the money.

"I really like this vest. It's extremely lightweight, but it offers great protection. The three magazine pouches on the front are kind of a tight fit for a rifle magazine, but doable.

I'd definitely recommend this vest for women; it provides great protection without being bulky across the bust. I would not recommend this vest for someone who has a large waistline/stomach/chest. I fit snug in the vest (5'4", 140lbs} but one of my friends tried on the vest (6'1", 250lbs) and could barely secure the waist. He also said it felt extremely tight across the chest/neck.

All in all, I'm extremely pleased with my order!

"it is the best vest i have ever had it holds up well i can carry 6 mags in it a little tight to put them in but is awesome its for more slim people not for big boys and i recommend it to people

"I bought this vest on 9-21-13, And it is just amazing! Being 5'4'' and only 115 pounds I thought the vest would be big, but when it arrived and I tried it on I was Amazed at how snug it was and comfortable. Now if you tend to be on the bigger end this vest will still fit, Its super adjustable and you can remove the arm pads and front neck protector. This vest has velcro all over the place for patches and what not, plus a giant pouch on the back for a water bladder or gas tank for you polar star users.

Super adjustable
velcro everywhere
back pouch
front facing mag pouches

Mag pouchs seem a little small for two mags, but one mag definitely
confusing to adjust at first but makes more sense after you mess with it
all yours friends will want to mug you for it

"Simply put, this airsoft test is absolutely fantastic and an essential for the hardcore player! I've had mine for just over a year now and has yet to let me down. Here's a quick review:

-Extremely lightweight, durable, and adjustable; allows for agility and flexibility
-The armor exceeds expectations; I took an entire M4 magazine at 350+ fps and didn't feel a thing
-Several places for patches, flags, team markers, etc.
-Hydration pack sewn into the vest (minus the bladder), one multipurpose pouch, and room for 1 grenade
-Both sleeves, neck guard, and groin protector are all detachable (although all have been useful)
-Reasonable price tag for the armor's value and use in the field
-The magazine pouches are very roomy; fits a loaded G36 magazine in each one (bulky magazine)

-This armor is not for tall people; I'm 5'8 and it barely covers my entire midsection down to my waist
-The buckles on the front magazine pouches are light plastic; a BB struck one of mine and it shattered

Overall, another outstanding product from Evike and well worth the purchase!

"Amazing vest, it looks like it would weigh a ton, but surprisingly very light, it has plenty of room for all of your M4/16 mags and others, its a great vest, durable and just, yeah, great vest highly recommend it!
by chris j. on 01/08/2013
"i Love this chest piece best thing i have ever got it saved my neck of being pepper sparyed ( means sprayed with bbs) all over the neck

-light weight
-and you can put patches on it

-kinda hard for me to look down but it might be just me

Overall 11/10
by Kevin G. on 10/03/2012
"Got this vest the other day and immediately tested it out. I must say that I am rather impressed with it's performance against being shot at. The fold down "crotch protector" would work better for me if I wasn't so tall but it does do its job. Back handle holds up well when being dragged like I was.

- Lightweight
- Affordable
- Great Quality

- A bit tight on larger players

"I have to say htis is my first vest i brought and so far its amazing
light / good feeling
Has a lot of protection
Doesn't brake easily

nothing really but its kinda small
by Tim C. on 07/10/2012
"I have had this vest for several months now, and it is great!!!!. I have been playing airsoft for a couple years now, and i have never had a vest before, and was tired of the bb's hurting so bad!. so I was looking around and saw this one and I just had to get it. I felt it was pretty steep at $80, but worth it!

-removeable neck and shoulder gaurds(for regular vest)
-GREAT protection
-looks very intimidating
-very adjustible

-price(not to bad,but still expensive)
-a little bit short

overall, i will give this a 10/10!

"I wrote on review already, but i had to do another one. I was playing Juggernaut with this vest (I was juggernaut) and it took most of the shots. I was walking toward everyone and all i heard was bbs pounding on my vest and it didn't even hurt! There are no scratches, no holes, nothing on my vest, its exactly the same! 500/5 :D
