Review: Imitation is the most sincere form of flattery, which is why this product has been ripped off and made as a knock-off by another company. The original is still the best.

I got my Flurry vest a long time ago, and also got a pod pack to go along with it. The velcro panel on the back had me worried for burr catching, but that's never been an issue. Pods are held on securely, and I've never had an issue with the velcro failing at any time.

The big problems are that I'm a large guy, so I had to be somewhat creative in how I adjusted my vest. The shoulder straps had to be let out almost the whole way. The guy who runs Flurry lives in my area, and plays at the field I play at. He worked with me for a few minutes adjusting pieces, then gave me some extra velcro so that the vest would sit comfortably on my shoulders. He also replaced defective parts, no questions asked. I can admire that.

It does come with some unique features, like the goggle holder strap and the cell phone / radio holder. The front pockets are deep, and large enough to hold the hugest paint grenade you can imagine. The chest pocket has a velcro name tape on it, which is handy so people don't just yell "hey you" all day.

However, the vest isn't modular or adjustable, so the pockets you got are the pockets you got. Not that big a problem, but MOLLE vests spoiled me for pick-n-choose mods. But you can adjust the back to fit as few or many pods as you need to carry. This came in handy when I was running a mission that I only needed 2 pods. I ripped off panels until I had what I needed, and ran the mission. 4 seconds of time, and I was off.

In summer the vest can get hot, as do all vests. But the hydration pack in the back can help solve that. I also removed the foam right away, knowing I'd be sweating in it.
Conclusion: For the customer service alone, this is a product worth buying. If you're a hardcore scenario player, you will like this vest. The only reason I stopped using mine is that I got a MOLLE vest now. But I still keep the Flurry vest because when I loan stuff out, I like to loan out quality. And this vest is certainly high quality.
