The best-looking and functioning vest you can buy. This vest is better than any I have seen, whether they are $30 or $350. This looks like the real thing and the pouches it comes with are top-notch. I have used it so far in 2 OPs and it has performed well. I also bought the SAW mag pouch to hold all of the M16 and G36 magazines I use. Slight problems: the drawstrings on the pouches (very handy) are frayed at the ends but can be easily taped up with masking tape, and the rear MOLLE webbing is too high up on my back to use for anything but no biggie and the mag pouches are just slightly too small to hold 2 mags or a Green gas bottle. everything from the neck guard to the pouches can be taken off in a matter of seconds if needed. The pouches it comes with are great though and work every time. Looks realistic (I bought the Digital woodland) and the colors aren't really that bold. Comes with a neck and crotch protector (nice, but not always used), 4 magazine pouches, 2 grenade pouches.
PROS:
has very good color scheme.
Comes with free pouches!
looks great
is actually bigger than it looks (could be a con)
very secure triple velcro front with button reinforcement.
A secret map pocket.
neck and crotch protector (free)
Is inexpensive compared to other vests
has sling holders on the shoulders (no more slipping slings!).
Good cordura-like material (?)
almost completely modular with the attachments
overall a great and inexpensive vest.
Fits well (I'm 6'2'')
Digital woodland looks great
grenade pouches double as loose-equipment pouches (if you don't have 2 grenades)
everything fits well and securely and is easy to remove when needed.
CONS
Rear webbing almost impossible to use (too high up on back)
neck guard tends to chafe
drawstring ends are frayed.
i didn't buy it sooner
A little bulky
mag pouches are a little too small to hold 2 mags but too big for 1.
The pouches seem to catch on the bits and pieces of MG36 mags and can make it hard to remove them.
Friends tend to try to pick you up by the handle on the back.

Overall: BUY IT!
