>Bad Pod Location
I have used this product at several private games with my buddies and also at a couple big scenario games.
This Vest ended up being one of the only things that ruined my weekend.
It was too large of a vest, Crawling was hell, all my paint fell out of my pods due to cheap straps.
"One Size Fits All" Mean it only fits average dudes.
I am a smaller guy and this thing was HUGE on me. haha
It sucks going for your paint when you are in a pinch, only to find it all fell out because the pods ripped open when you were crawling.
This of course wouldn't have happened if the Pod's were located in the back.
Or, If they had better Velcro or Elastic on the pod loops.
This only good thing I liked about this vest was that it could breathe VERY well and was light weight.
I don't think its very practical for a fast moving woodsballer.
Better suited for a Scout?
nice review however i have a few questions #1 did the vest have the 4 140 round pod holders or the 6 100 holders, I find the 6 is much easier to move in and is made well. The 140 holders often have a problem #2 also did you adjust the straps that pull on each side of the vest because i have seen a 350 pound man wear this vest comfortably and have also seen very skinny poeple wear it well.
It actually looks like he rated it low for various reasons. He has a right to say he didn't like it because of the Pod location. I can certainly see where low-crawling would be hindered by having the pods on your belly. You could certainly unzip the vest and push it open when you crawl, but that seems to defeat the purpose of the vest.
I've worn this vest and I agree with him that crawling is definitely hindered. Especially if the terrain is... difficult.
As far as it not fitting him, I can't say... I'm a big guy and it hugged me tight so I could see it being a bit loose... but that's not something I'll ever experience. But I think he made a valid complaint on that issue as well since there is only one size. The reviews should reflect the individuals' tastes and experience.
You failed to even note whether or not you had even used the vest. Just my 2 cents...
Inkstick, I have deleted my dispute and I would like to apologize. My friend has purchased one of these, and it seems to be an entirely different design while still being called a "PCS Tactical Combat Vest." That has made me realize that we probably have different designs, and for the particular design you reviewed, your review is probably accurate.
