Review: I bought this vest because i was looking for 5 specific things:
-Torso shots hurt, so the solid fabric does a great job of keeping your middle welt free
-lets me hold 300-500 paintballs in the front, depending on my pods and which attachment im using
-pockets so i can hold my allen wrenches, squeegee and other stuff i might need
-to securely hold my 20oz tank
-im a heavy-set guy, and this vest fits really well

this vest is super modular. it comes with 2 large pockets, 2 small pockets,1 4 pod attachment, 1 3 pod attachment, and a tank holder attachment that has 2 pod slots on it. the vest itself is velcro, so you can essentially put any of these attachments wherever you want on the vest. the velcro is strong and is reinforced with snap buttons, so it will hold even your tank snugly. my setup is i use the small pockets on the chest, large pockets on my right and 3 pod pouches on my left (like the photo), and i use the tank holder+2 pod pouches on my back. i use 140 rnd pods in the front (which fit well, even though the pouches are primarily for 100rd) and i use the pod pouches in the back for water or some other drink.

the drawbacks of this vest are few. due to the solid fabric its not very breathable, but the vest is light so it doesnt add a lot of weight. my previous experiance with velcro is that if you put it through the washing machine it tends to be less adhering. so if you get shot in the vest its best just to wipe it off with a damp cloth, and let it dry.

the vest only comes in black . dont be fooled by the picture which makes it look like it has a violet tinge to it, the vest is a flat black.
Conclusion: Overall this is a great vest. durable, modable, adjustable, and made specifically for paintball. at 100 dollars usd its price is comparable to other vests. i highly recommend it.
