For the money, it's a good deal. Buying a plate carrier and then all the pouches that come with this would be more expensive. I'm using all the pouches on it except for the radio pouch (which can be used as a holster if you want).If you jam 'em in there, you can double stack mags in the pouches. So the triple can hold six and the double can hold four. It's a decent plate carrier too. It feels oh so much better with plates in it, so I would recommend making them out of cardboard and sticking 'em in there. However, there are some negatives. A part of the quick release system on mine broke, so now I can't use that anymore. I fixed it with a zip tie, but no more quick releasing for me. It is also not the best quality plate carrier. There are loose strings all over the thing, so take a lighter to it to stop them from fraying.

PROS:
Cheap
Functions as it should
Comes with all the pouches you will need

CONS:
Not the best quality, but it could be worse

PS: Watch Evike's review on this so you know how to wear it. I didn't know what to do with the two longer straps, but they wrap around your body underneath the vest.
