||I've had this vest since 2007 and it is still going stong. It's been though snow, heat, water and freezing cold and has pulled though each time.
All my mates have gone though about three vests in that time but I've just stuck to this one as it seems rather indestructable. I tend to use it each week at variouse First & Only sites and people know me by the vest because i've had it that long. Every weekend for five years, and for only $50. Bargin!
Very VERY resilient.
Lots of nice pouched for different things
Holds a Shotgun nicely with the three back straps.
Can hurt the neck after a while, but only after having the thing on for more than 24 hours.
... Thats about it.
