"Had it for 3 years now and still love it. My son is going to start using it because I want him to be safe (he is 14) but yet still look bad a$$. Its super light perfect for indoor CQB.

"Just received it, i am around 5'10-5'11 170 LBS and its a nice snug fit on me. The harnesses on side be loosened or tightened, as well as the top ones. So if you're larger/smaller you can make it fit. I didn't know it came with the mag pouches as in the picture but it they did (nice addition) they are very very tight however. I have the G&P mid caps and its hard to pull them out (ill use them as last resort if anything).

- nice snug feel
- comfortable
- very light
- nice look with black ski mask and black sports shirt

- the mag pouches are a little tight, i am sure after time they will loosen up

"just got this vest and i do have to say it is pretty cool! very light and its from transformers!!!! who wouldn't want this.

pros: - metal buckles at the shoulders. very cool and did not expect this.
-sleek design
-conforms with the body and movement
-makes any load out
-prepare for compliments galore.

-molle space is meh. not a whole lot to work with
-fitting the straps to your own stature is tedious by yourself. (not really a big issue)
-Molle weaving on this thing is truly tedious ( once again not really a big issue)

overall this cons are not anything to be concerned about this is a great piece for any load out i love this

"This vest is extremely light and as many other reviewers have said it definitely turns heads. The Molle isn't too much of hassle to attach onto it. It looks and feels great. Highly recommend this vest.

"Great armor for my dimly lit CQB matches. Pair this with a darker loadout and it looks very intimidating. As for the comfort it's a little tight compared to my plate carrier but not to bad. Only thing I had to do was lightly heat up the front EVA plate piece to reform it from shipping.

"Excellent feel &design. No cons!

"Amazing quality and fits me a 6'1 315 Lbs. guy though i recommend wearing a chest rig over this to hold more mags
by Corey S. on 08/15/2014
"Awesome vest can't feel shots at all, only problems are the tight molle placement and the fact that there is very little molle on it. Also, like some other reviews said it does leave small dots where you get shot but it just adds character in my opinion.

"when i first saw this armor, my mind went to what i do best: carrying big guns, and holding down others for my team to move in. plain and simple. THIS RIG, however, is supposed to be for CQB/light riflemen with regular stantag mags. but, this vest does have some flaws, but the advantages outweigh most of the issues.

light, comfortable
can shrug off BB's/ don't go home looking like a pincushion
cheap for what it is
rather daunting looking (6'1 guy with LMG, 4 color jungle tiger stripe, this vest, and a helmet) why is it a tactical advantage? you draw fire from your teammates to you, giving them a moment to breath and move in.

when raising your large weapon to aim (note: this is not a issue with M-4 or other 'light' weapon) the vest can raise with your shoulders and make staring down a M-60's sights a bit hard
MOLLE is crazy tight, so i was sad when my 3-mag pouch couldn't slide on so i could carry more batteries for the LMG
i kinda wish it was made...well, not as cheap. can't complain for 80 bucks, and its not a deal breaker, i just wish it looked like the one in the picture
also, when it coems in, a plate or 2 may be bent out of shape. just un-bend them.

all in all, it is certainly a light rig, but can function well for all senarios if you get creative. ive used it as a gunner rig, rifleman, CQB, and a marksman for a short while. after you get used to it, it is fine.

"Just tested out the vest, works great, can't feel a thing when shot, had to call my hits based on sound lol. Covers the lower mass area better than other vests. No velcro on it for patches but I bought velcro strips and looped them into the top molle to add the Umbrella patch I also got (right in the center)

Pros: looks damn cool (wow factor), can't feel a thing, very adjustable, light weight, able to be very mobile, paired with the right sweat wicking BDU or tact shirt it doesn't feel so hot, works very well with a molle belt for more lower mass coverage, great for CQB or indoor

Cons: not as much molle but meant for light load outs anyway, no velcro for patches but easy $5 fix, molle is very tight so make sure whatever you molle into the bottom part that you like it (fast mags are in transit so I'm running no mag pouches on it yet)

All around, great investment vest for light load outs, molle belt is a must

"Definitely the coolest tac vest available for purchase the only gripe i had with it is the plates can come bent and have to shaped back into place
by Michael S. on 07/30/2012
"This is the best piece of kit you could spend your money on. I live in the UK, but even though it took a while for delivery it was well worth it. The first time I turned up to a Skirmish wearing this I got so many compliments from people who were interested in the armour. And the small minority who weren't impressed well, after seeing how it performed with superior protection but light weight materials were soon asking how much and where from..... Five Stars for this body armour.

"This vest is boss

Great qualility
Black(I only use black camo) because I think it looks really cool I snipe)
Looks awsome on the feild
Can't feel any bbs when hit

No molle in the back
A little big on me but I'm only12 80lbs about 5" tall(I should grow into it I can still use it)
A little expensive for a molle vest
by Shane F. on 07/01/2012
"What does TF3 stand for?

But besides that question, this armor looks really high quality and could last me for a lifetime. Appearance is superb, very aggressive and stealth-like.\

"First off, I have to say this is probably one of the most unique vests you can get for milsim combat. I'm the only person in New Jersey that does airsoft with one. Getting down to it, this vest is highly versatile. It won't break on you, and BBs won't damage it. (although, as a previous review said, a direct BB hit will leave a dent for a while) The MOLLE webbing is a bit tight, but it loosens up with some handling. It's very light, and only heats up if you aren't properly ventilated. It also fits great to really any body type. The side straps can accommodate any reasonable width, and the shoulder buckles have a VELCRO strap under them, which you can adjust in or out for shoulder width. It works with an almost infinite number of loadouts and clothing, as well. All in all, a great buy.
