"This chest rig appears to be nearly identical to those used in the film Lone Survivor. While not entirely identical to chest rigs used by Seal Team 10 in real life, it is very close to one worn by Mathew Axelson. it is based on the RRV.
The vest is sturdily constructed, I've had mine for about five years in 2019 and it shows very minimal signs of wear, mostly around the elastic components. It holds six STANAGs easily, although I recommend rearranging the MOLLE straps as the pouches are not securely attached from the factory and like to fall off if not attached properly. Unfortunately the side pouches (based on Eagle Industries' USMC canteen pouch) do not hold 1qt canteens, although there is plenty of room on the MOLLE panel if they are removed. I used the space for an IFAK and radio equipment. The hydration carrier does inhibit the lower strap from tightening completely but is easily removed.
"I've had this rig for about a year now, and have been through enough games with it to give a review for it: (Summary is at the bottom if you wouldn't like to read a paragraph lol)
It's a good rig for the money. Comes with a triple set of m4 double stack pouches, two accessory pouches, an admin pouch, and a hydration carrier, which are all removable. I don't find the material concerning at all, like other rigs I've used in the past, it's very well constructed. I'm 5'10 and 200 lbs, and it fits perfectly. It won't flop around if it's correctly adjusted, just in case anyone is worried about that happening. I did not like the amount of adjusting I personally had to do to make it fit just right though. But, it's very good once it's fully adjusted to your comfort. It does everything I'd need it to. MOLLE on it is definitely convenient. This is THE rig for new players because it's got everything you're gonna need to hold accessories and ammo in your first few matches. Then you can even move the pouches around if you want to, cause MOLLE lol. I've used this in both CQB and outdoor, it's good for both. It's a light enough rig to do that "rapid assault" style gameplay, and it's also good for any type of player really. It's a very breathable rig, in the back anyway. I do plan to attach bigger m4 pouches to fit a wider variety of different platforms, because these pouches that the rig come with are good, but are very tight if not using m4 mags. Each pouch can hold two m4 mags. Do not push them beyond that. Example: don't try to cram two mags any bigger than m4 mags in one pouch. Overall, if you're in the market for a durable, yet affordable rig, take a look into this one.
To sum it up:
-Great for beginners due to pouches it comes with. No need to buy more unless you want a different setup of course. Or a different gun platform other than an m4/m16
-Doesn't flop around lol
-Lightweight for any play style
-All-Purpose: great for field or indoor gameplay
-Pouches it comes with are good, wish they were a little bigger though. Or came with optional bigger pouches.
-Not very breathable in the front unless you find a way to tuck in admin pouch.
-It took me quite some time to adjust to my comfort. Not a big issue, it's not hard, just took a lot of time for me for some reason.
Overall, good for the money, I looked around for other rigs that were cheaper, but honestly this one might be the best for its price range. If you feel like you can afford a plate carrier that's $150, then go for it. I would if I could lol. But I like this more because it's lightweight, breathable overall, and not bulky like some plate carriers are. Get this if you want an affordable, durable chest rig.
"I received this chest rig a few days ago and so far I love it. The only con I could possibly give it is it has a ton of straps and takes a while to adjust for the first time. It is very comfortable though once adjusted. Love the hydration carrier on the back for long games in the heat and love that it can be taken off if not needed or wanted. I can easily fit 6 m4 mags in the pouches. Even my p mags fit well and they are kinda big. Depending on the size of your mag it may be really tight at first but give time for elastic to break in. Wish it included a dump pouch but there is plenty of room to add one if you want. Its a great product for a great price.
