Review: After some bad pod packs, I decided to throw down the extra cash and buy a vest for myself. I couldnt be more please with this vest, its wonderful!

-Its one size fits all, so no need to take your own measurements and such
-With your air tank on your upper back, you hardly even notice that its there
-You can hold up to 7 pods of paint (thats alot for me)
-Comes in lots of camo patterns for different ballers for different areas
-The velcro band on the inside of the vest makes it hold to you like a second skin, no bouncing at all
-Can hold up to a 100oz Water Bladder (WONDERFUL!!!)
-Since its not as big as other vests, its supposed to be cooler..............

-............but I still find myself getting a little warm with it on, especially during the hot days, but its not that big of an issue.
-I wish the utility pouch was bigger, not much I can put inside of it
-I wish the grenade pouch was removable, Im not much of a grenade person
-Takes a while to get it fitted just for you
-The elastic pod slots are really hard to get the pods back into
-Pods will slide right out of the other slots (Ive dropped many pods on the ground trying to catch them first lol)
Conclusion: Overall I find this vest to be a great item! It is not perfect, but the small problems it does have dont hamper me or my game at all, they are just personal preference issues I believe. I like to travel light and fast and this vest lets me do that without adding hardly any weight to me at all. Even with 7 pods and my Nitro Duck 68/45 in it I often forget I have it on. I also recommend getting the Integrated Sling system, which is also a life saver. A++ for Special Ops and a wonderful product!!
