Experience:

Similar
Products Used:
32 Degrees Freestyle 5.4 pack, various pod/tank belts.
Marker Setup: Tippmann A5 with SpecOps A5-A2 grip, Tapco stock, Lapco Bigshot barrel. Zeus G2+ Pistol
Strengths: Durable, ability to carry everything
Weaknesses: Material doesn't breathe (only a problem in the summer).
Review: This is a great vest. I've used it for about a year, and I would never go back to anything else. Here's some details.

Strengths:
As the other reviewer said, the ability to carry EVERYTHING is huge. Six pods, your tank, your pistol, two pistol clips, 12oz cartridges, an FRS radio, maps, a camelback hydration kit, and just about anything else you could think of. And with any vest, getting all that weight off of your waist and onto your shoulders where it is much more evenly distributed is huge, expecially during a long scenario day.

The material is very durable. I've fallen into muck, tripped and landed on my back, slid onto rocks and brush, and thrown it into the washing machine at the end of the day and it's none the worse for wear (note: I have never put it in the dryer).

It's also adjustable, so that if you have an expanding waistline :) you can loosen it, or tighten it back up if/when that waistline starts to contract again.

Weaknesses:
I agree with the other reviewer who said that the material, probably because of its durability, doesn't breathe. This is only a problem in the summer, so more often than not if it's 80+ degrees out and you're wearing this, you'll probably be going onto the field with only a T-shirt underneath.

It's also way too big and cumbersome for speedball play, but then again it's not advertised as a piece of speedball gear.

The gun clip is a bit on the short side if you have a stock. I've never really been able to comfortably use it. I use my slide-check and put my gun down between games.
Conclusion: For the woodsballer who uses a pistol with a Zeus-type clip system, you can't go wrong. I have had no complaints in the year since I bought it. Excellent buy.
