Matrix Variable Front Plate Vest w/ Integrated Pistol Holster - (Black)
by Antonio T. Date Added: January 10, 2013
The construction of this vest is excellent and it fits me very well with plenty of room for adjustment (i'm very skinny but 5' 10"). The mag holders are great, a little stiff at first. The pistol mag holders actually hold my USP mags super well which has been hard to find in other vests.

My main issue with this vest is the cross draw holster. I think its pretty much impossible for me to actually draw my sidearm from it. its just at an impractical angle to reach. The sides of the vest can also come up pretty far, almost in your armpits depending on how you have yours setup. This also causes some issues with the cross draw. Its a shame because its a very nice, secure holster too.

It is a very well made vest, just a shame that the sidearm holster doesn't detach separately from the rest of the variable front.

I was able to get a grenade pouch between the mags and utility pouch for my tornado which is a great plus.

Id love to see different front plates sold with other options on them.
