Strange areas lack cover, pod holders are poor and in a bad location.
I really love having a suit of armor. It has made me a more confident player. It's nice to have the pods right at hand, but more than once I have popped open and lost all the paintballs or knocked the pod out all together because they rest right under your arms. The armor also has strange spots that are unprotected. For example: there is no armor over the shoulders. I often crawl into position and only have my head and shoulders exposed, so a shoulder shot is fairly common. The biggest problem I have with the armor is I have only had it about three months (it was bought for me in mid June) and only used it about a half dozen times and it's already falling apart. When I contacted the company they said: "Due to the nature of our rigorous sport, we are not able to warranty our product against wear and tear." To my mind this is not wear and tear. It is shattering (they way silk shatters) at the seams on a lot of the armor pads and started after the fourth use (when I contacted the company). Also I have yet to figure out how to effectively clean it which means it starts out stinky and gets worse after use.
I would tell people about it, but I would also explain my problems and let them decide if they want to spend $150 on it themselves themselves.
