Review: Strengths:
NOTE TO READERS: I refer to the product as a vest for ease of writing, but in fact is is a harness system.

Durable: The material this vest is made out of is very strong and tough. I beleive its 1000D cordura, but i am not too sure about it. either way, i can crawl around in the mud, over rocks and in the water and this will still be in one piece when i get up.
+2

Camo: I have the Special Ops Digi camo pattern of my vest. It is very good quality, with no fading spots and really helps to my to blend in to my environment.
+2

Ergonomic: The vest is really well designed. It is light and open, perfect for snipers and light riflemen who need the freedom of movement, yet still need to carry some ammo. I personally use this vest to snipe with, but at the same time, i can hold my own should i ever be drawn into a firefight. The elastic waistband is probably the most innovative feature in that it effectively displaces the weight of your equipment on the small of your back and abdominals instead of on your shoulders. I could run around and hit the ground and my stuff didn't move an inch. I was loving it!


NOTE: some people complain about the pods and the fact that they are located on the back in a verticle fashion. I for one dont find that there is anything wrong with that setup and IMO, it is really easy to take pods out and put then back in. The only issue i can forsee is that other than the 4 pods that the vest can take, there are 3 elastsic loops that allow someone to carry an additional 3 pods. i dont like to travel that heavy, but taking the pods out and putting them back in to these loops will be difficult to do so.
+4

Cool/Open: The vest is designed purposely so that the wearer will remain cool all day and not get overly hot. This was a good feature, and will come in handy during the summer months. AS i said before, the fact that the vest is open lets you crawl around on your stomach and otherwise be un-hindered.
+2

Weaknesses:

Straps: As i said, this is a harness system. I for one found it difficult to adjust the straps, but once it did, the vest fit me perfectly. It is not so much as difficulty in terms of adjusting the straps, it just takes a bit long IMO. Still, i like this feature because it is one size fits all and can be adjusted to whatever the wearer desires.
-1
Conclusion: Overall this is a great vest. Perfect for those who want to travel light and fast, but still have enough ammo to finish the job. Perfect for snipers/sharpshooters and light riflemen.

9 out of 10
