Review: These items are awesome.
- Weight: these marauders are pretty light... mainly since there are no pockets on the torso area
- Versitility: I used these in North West washington... and on the day that i used these... the following weather type was observed (all on the same day): rain, wind, cold, heat. here are the results: rain & wind. this item is just like the military bdu's in rain: absorb some of them. and added with wind it can get a little nippy. but wind alone its good. cold- the ripstop was mainly intended for use in the summer environments, so i suggest wearing a second layer underneath. heat: they work well, they dont trap in heat.
- Pockets on arms: compared to the standard bdu's these are better. mainly since its easier to grab small items since they are at an angle. having it with velcro is an advantage and a disadvantage. advantage in that u can easily grab something without unbuttoning the pocket. disadvantage in that if you are hiding, and open the pocket you hear a loud KKKRRRRRRRTTTT!!!!!!!
- Arm & Neck- Not enough elasticity: mainly the cuffs and the neck are loose and flimsy... its like one of those sweaters that when u grab something above your head, the sweater sleeves tend to fall towards yourself.
- Camo: i used the S.O. Digi design (green) these i guess are pretty accurate. i was laying on my belly during a senario game, and the oposing team walked past me within five feet.
- Style: this is a jersey... so it pretty much goes over your head. its not really my style... mainly since it take a bit more time to remove it when needed.
- Velcro: arm velcro allows you to place patches or PTT buttons to them... allowing you to display your team.
Conclusion: 8/10 Mainly since i was sent a bad batch, and have to send it back to get repaired (velcro tabs are ripping off). overall, great durability & ease of use & looks. i doubt that you will be disappointed
