$65.00

First off I must say Im a huge transformers fan, so as soon as I saw the post on evike's facebook page, I ordered it immediately.

It looks really awesome, just like what the members of nest wore in the tf DOTM. It does seem to be a little expensive for what it really is, and it is a nice build quality. The panels are made of a rather thin foam, I would have expected them to be a little stiffer but regardless they look good. One problem that I have found so far is BB impacts on this foam surface. Being worried I tested the durability, using a GBB pistol cronoed at 349 (indoor cqb limit for my area) at just over minimum engagement range 11ft the BB left a rather large indent. After about 20 min, most of the indent had gone away, however it is 2 days since that impact and the location can still be seen. That is my biggest problem with this vest, only other issue would be the lack of the FASTMAGS being in stock to complete the NEST look.

Pros
looks awesome, straight out of TF3
fits and adjusts well (5'11", 140Ib)
Not to hot to wear even in "combat"

Cons
Seems a tad expensive for what it actually is
limited MOLLE, (could have been nice on the 2 small side panels like the actual movie vest
the fact that BB impacts leave small dents(biggest issue)
