Review: The Vest is tough. mine's taken plenty of hits, and as long as you know how to take cover, it doesn't really make you that much bulkier. If you are a speedballer, this vest isn't for you. Get an Empire Harness or something. If you are doing a 4+ hour scenario game, you don't want to feel the weight of all those pods and your Co2 tank the whole time. This vest completely disperses the weight, I was very surprised. I wore it pretty much 5 hours streight during a game and not once did I feel the weight of my paint or tank. All I felt was a bit beefier.

The vest is extremely customizable, from mag pouches to pods to tanks, a water resevoir, water bottles, medic supplies, maps, cigarettes, almost anything you would need to carry with you onto the field. If you get hit in the vest, you don't feel it. Now that's a double-edged sword. I got hit twice in the vest in one game and people accused me of not calling myself out because I had no idea I even got hit.

The vest comes with 2x 2-pod holders on the front, an ID card holder pocket (top right), a small pocket (top left), and a radio pouch (top left shoulder). The back is rigged to put a tank pouch, more pods, other pouches, or all 3. There is also space for more pouches on the left and right sides just under your arm where the front and the back of the vest connects. I got two 1x pouches there, which is perfect for holding a water bottle and my marker tool kit, a paint rag, and microfiber cloth.

On reading some other reviews and taking a second look at my vest, I just want to clarify something. People have said the vest is not very modular and you can hold a max of 6 pods on it. If you were so inclined, you can get two 3x pod holders on the front, and if you run air on your back you can put your tank pouch on your upper back (like it comes when you get it) and put a 4x pod holder under it on your lower back. That's a total of 10 pods, not to mention the crap you can put on your sides.

It's very modular.

Besides, if you wanna crawl or flop down on your belly, just get some really, really tough pods. :)
Conclusion: This sucker is tough, rugged, light, and breathable. If you are a hardcore scenario player, this vest is for you.
