USMC Style C.I.R.A.S. Type Force Recon Tactical Vest (w/ Full Pouch System) - Dark Earth
by Zachary C. Date Added: November 5, 2010
vest just arrived today

lets get started.

first impressions, it looks great, just like the picture. the picture and description differ.
it says comes with 3 double m4 puches i got a 3 pocket and 2 pocket for a total of 10 when the description leads you to believe it comes with 3, 2 pocket pouches for a total 12 mags.
there is no hydration pocket, you could put the bladder in where the armor goes but there is no dedicated pocket

its very adjustable. my friend got the same vest with me and his fit him great out of the box mine on the other hand was pretty loose. with bdus armor plates and magazines in i have to have it on the tightest setting and im 5'9 155lbs and wear a samll reg bdu top. its not an on the fly adjustment either. i spent a good 10-15 minutes getting it right .

there is hook and loop under the collar for atatchment of a neck guard too. i think i found a clip for the groin protector option as well.

the pouches that came with it are already put on the vest i just had to put them on all the way to make sure it was all nice and cozy. the rivet on the admin pouch strap was busted and so was the strap that hold down the middle plate in the back of the vest but im emailing evike to see if there is anything we can do about this. the one on the back isnt a big deal b/c of all the hook and loop but the adminpouch will move all over the place.

overall i love the ciras replica. building the vest from the carrier up would cost a fortune. this is the best deal for the money period
