Products Used:
utg commando vest
Marker Setup: Tippmann a5 response. Powerlyte scepter 7 piece kit. rap4 air through collapsible stock kit.
Strengths: Holds allot of paint, sturdy, made of a mesh material.
Weaknesses: Open pod pouches in the front. Tank is hard to reach. Color selection sucks.
Review: Well I purchased this vest a year ago and have played with it quite a bit. I bought this vest because I was a beginner and didn't know anything about paintball at the time. I wish I would have waited and done my research first and got some opinions of other people. My biggest complaint is that because the pods are not enclosed in the front they like to fall out when I crouch and my knees hit them and push them out. Another thing about the pouches being open is when I belly crawl things catch the lids of my pods and my paint spills everywhere I thought it might help if I turned them right side up. but it didn't make a difference. The problem I have with the tank pouch is the fact that it doesn't have any straps on top to hold the tank in. My tank almost fell out when I dove behind a bunker. Also it isn't easy to adjust for the tank size. You have to tank the pods part way off the back of the vest just to get to the tank pouch. If you don't have the pods on the back the tank isn't supported and therefore it wobbles around. The inside pockets are a nice touch. Also the radio pouch is a joke if you want to fit radio in there it better be really small or you need to trim the cover.
Conclusion: I have the black version of the vest cause all the other versions looked stooped. Even if you are a beginner I would not recommend this vest. If you see a vest that you really want don't do what I did and settle for the less expensive vest be sure to get what you want the first time so you can be happy with it and save money in the long run. I'm currently looking into a MOLLE vest so I can customize it to my liking.
