"I bought this vest a while back and it works well but i have a few gripes with it. When it is fully loaded if you lay in the prone your body arcs upward because there is so much gear stacked on top of each other. after only minutes of getting it out of the box the pals webbing on the shoulder came unsewn. Also, if you are a slimmer fit like i am the straps dig into your neck and when the vest is completely tightened, its still loose on me so i have to wear a soft armor

Pros
nice color
many mag pouches
hidden admin panel and 2 extra mag pouches (velcro on sides)
takes a beating in the feild

Cons
weak stitching in places (re enforce it)
arched body in prone position
doesnt fit smaller framed people
mesh on straps scratches neck raw

"Wow, what a great piece of tactical gear, Condor has done it yet again. This chest rig has everything you need to be out on the field without going overboard, some say simplest is best and it's hard to disagree once you strap on this rig. Very light weight, comfortable, durable, and economical, of course it doesn't offer much protection since your whole body is exposed but combined witha sturdy bdu and you'll be fine. I highly recommend this chest rig to players who like to run a lot or not care for lugging around too much weight and great for an lmg loadout.

"I am not the fast mover on my team, I am actually the exact opposite. However, I bought this chest rig for my local indoor field, and let me tell you it is a fantastic rig. It is nice having the six M4 mag pouches, but 6 pistol mag pouches is a little bit of overkill for me. I use a KWA M9 PTP, and the mags are pretty expensive, but if you use a pistol with cheap mags, well good for you.
There is a little bit of space on the side, which I use for a map pouch and the Condor sidekick pouch (which is a fantastic piece of kit) and it is a great combo. I keep a pocket knife on a strap and a dump pouch on the back belt. The rig is fantastically comfortable and is great with the x strap and small belt, but cannot help you for protection (obviously).
Let's do the pros and cons now:

PROS:
Small and slim
Six M4 and pistol mag pouches
A good amount of extra molle straps
Padded shoulders
Nice coyote color
Very breathable
High quality material

CONS:
It could be a little taller
Less pistol mag pouches, maybe a suppressor or flashlight pouch

And that's about it. It may obviously be different for you, but these are mine. For only 25, definantly buy it. Do it. Now. Right. Now. Unless you use an M249....
