Review: Great vest i got mine a few days ago cant take it off.

i wore a similar one to this that was a photographer vest at a game and ti was great i got shot through a window from decently close and barely felt it.

ok ill just start at the top and go down
walkie pocket
-good placement, throat mic cables can run to the right places easily from there (a littel tight with the throat mike pluged in but not to tight.

id and map pockets
-carry maps right up where you can see them and you id at almost eye level makes stuff so much easier

top ziper chest pocket
-secure storage for small things like wallets
-in front of thsi pocket is a small velcro pocket with an id plate

main velcro pockets
-big pockets (put on with their special interlock thing they wont come off in play but if you need to take them off you can might take you a while but they can come off)

hydro pack sleve
-in back there is a sleve for your hydro pack and on a hot day it keeps you so nice and cool its great

inside ziper pockets
-keep thigns inside your vest in a zipped up pocket for even more protection against losing them

top back plate
-we got custom ones for our team ill talk about them more later

bottom pack
-you can get almsot any bottle/pod set up you want
-i got 2 deuce 150s and i know already its gona be great for games

-keeps the weight off of your shoulders
-a littel stiff when you get it i have been bending it a lot lately and its starting to soften up

o about the back plates i orderd the vests and asked if i could send a pdf of what we wanted of the back plates rob said sure so i sent the pdf (only font but i redid it somewhat because we could not find teh perfect font) he got it perfect

if you want a custome back palte though it will run $25 instead of $10 like if it is a special font or something like that

First day of real play with it.
-at first when fully loaded and shouldering my marker it felt a littel bulky but once game on i didnt really notice. I bought the arm guards to go with it and im pretty glad i did cause i got shot from very close in the shoulder and barely felt it. i fet a lot more comfortable crawling because i was not getting poked with brush like like when i normaly play in just a t shirt. i also jsut felt a little more secure making those questionable moves when you think you might get shot and thats teh only reason you do not move.

i was told by a sponsored team that there is a great waranty behind this i forgot to ask specifics about it but if i rember correctly rob will basicaly fix any thing that happens from normal use like tears and thigns like that for free or extreamly cheap (it might be even a better waranty than that but i dont really remember)

Conclusion: Great vest maybe a littel heavy but there are so many pockets and things you can do with it its worth it the only reason i say dont get it is cause i want to stand out more

the only problem is that balls can break on it easier but hey just dont get shot

gets a 10 and i dont really give 10s to anything but thsi earned it
10 out of 10Last edited on Monday, January 24th, 2005 at 8:44 am PST
