Tippmann 98C with a 16" barrel, Response Trigger, Expansion Chamber, New Front Bolt and Power Tube.

Pod and tank set-up personally configureable
No zipper in the middle
This vest is a great buy for those looking to find a way to carry all of the things they'll need for recball or scenario games. I even use it when I play speedball, mainly because of the remote line and pods. It provides me with great flexibility when I play speedball and any sort of game when I need to lean out of bunkers and slide into safety. It also fits snugly on me. I'm 6'1, 180(ish) pounds and this vest fits me near perfectly. I can load it down with tools, grenades, rags, comm gear, maps, my air source, pods filled with paint and it'll feel as natural as if it were empty. It also stays in place when I run, slide, crawl, sneak, and eat despite it being stuffed like a pizza crust.
Considering that I'm left-handed, I just use the mask clip to hold my gun in-between games, or when I need to climb over something. That way I can hold my much lighter mask or use both hands to avoid falling.
I washed this vest last night, on the delicate cycle and dried it in the no heat/fluff setting.
All of the paint came out and the vest is still in perfect condition.
Sometimes the vest gets a bit warm because of the foam lining. However, I'm not going to remove it considering the vest is being borrowed from a friend. I'd also like a zipper on the front like a jacket, but I can't complain too loud because my wallet can only speak so loud.
Overall this vest is great for what I need it for and I'll be sad to see it go back to it's owner. It is a great first time vest to learn with and allows you to get used to the concept of using a vest properly. It also will provide you with a great back-up or loaner to others on your team if you decide to upgrade to a more advanced vest.
Overall I recommend this to anyone that is considering a vest.
It's not perfect, but again, I can't complain too loud.
