Matrix Modular Molle System Vest (Vest Only) - ACU
[Vest-CD-MV-AC]
$44.95
by Eric R. Date Added: Monday 05 October, 2009
I'm 5'11", faily average build and this fits me very well. It would not work very well for someone much shorter than that, however, unless you want to run without a belt (it doesn't come with one).

Pros:
-Overall this vest is great. The MOLLE webbing is very sturdy, and the adjustments keep the vest nice and tight even when moving around a lot.
-It's pretty lightweight, making it more comfortable than a lot of the plate carrier style vests.
-Tan color matches my MultiCam reasonably well without breaking the bank.

Cons:
-No webbing on the sides (because of the straps for adjusment), which I don't really care about. I don't like having things under my arms when I run anyway.
-No hydration tube routing on the front of the shoulders. I tied a loop of paracord to the top left MOLLE slot, though, and it works well enough.
-Buckles in the middle make the first row of slots on the right side unusable except for very small pouches. No biggie for me, though, because I prefer leaving the middle open.
-Sniper shoulders are very rubbery, and they make annoying creaking noises if I'm moving with my rifle shouldered. I may sew some fabric over my shooting shoulder to quiet it down some.
