[Vest-001-B]
$35.00

I absolutely love this vest. It is curiously comfortable to wear, which surprised me since I have it so heavily loaded with all metal hi-caps and tacti-cool gear such as my rubber bayonet (purchased on Evike.com for $9.99 [which I actually use]).
I am 6'3" and 195 lbs, it fits me absolutely perfect. I don't recommend this vest for anyone larger than me by anyone more than 10 lbs and for no more than 6'3" because you probably won't get it on without breaking the straps. (Yes I'm a dude... under age to make an Evike account... for now…)
I use a G&G RK-47 with all-metal hi-caps (also from Evike) and I can only get one mag into each pouch, but I don't have that many mags, so it’s not a problem. If you use mid-cap or low-cap AK mags and have several of them, be wary that you won't fit them all into the vest.
Pros:

-Well made for so cheap
-Numerous pouches, more than can be put on the vest
-Shooter's shoulder padding
-MOLLE straps on back for... anything
-Fits AK-series mags
-Fits most small-framed pistols in the holster like Glock 23s and P8s
-The black looks awesome with tiger-stripe BDUs and black gear (pads, boots, gloves, mask)
Cons:
The holster does not by any means fit large pistols. My KJW Xcellerator fits so poorly, the muzzle doesn’t fit through the tiny little hole at the base. Thin barreled revolvers do fit, though.
-Not for heavy people (not me)

And that's it! If you are a budget airsofter wanting to look like a pro, or if you just don't want to spend $200 on a Cordura, which, by the way is an amazing vest, this is about your best option. Period.
BUY IT!
