3- '99 Pro/Carbine, Bone Stock except a 16" All American Stainless Steel Barrel and a Custom-made Tactical Sling.
COMFORTABLE, Light Weight, Breathable, Excellent MOLLE customization, Wide Range of Adjustment.
My Tank Pouch would only mount vertical, The "Dead Man Strap" covers the name plate.
I decided on the Static Vest for the lighter weight and better ventilation. I ordered the L/XL because I am a tall guy, but since I am pretty skinny, I was hoping it would still be tight enough around the waist.
I am very impressed with the quality of this vest. It's made of multiple layers of mesh material so it will breath very well. Once I got it all adjusted up to my size, I thought it was very comfortable. The waist strap is very secure, and can adjust to a wide variety of sizes. Along with the Vest, I ordered two 2+3 Pod Packs, a Tank Pouch, and a Radio Pouch. All the MOLLE attachments are very securely attached. My Tank Pouch only came with vertical MOLLE straps, which was a bit disappointing since I wanted to attach it horizontally. I have an idea how to rig it up though. The 2+3 Pod Pouches are great. I could possible carry 10 pods of paint.
I ordered a BT Combat Jersey, which seems to be a perfect compliment to the Static Vest. The jersey has padded elbows, shoulders, and in the waist where the vest secures. The jersey may be part of the vests comfort, so I do recommend both.
Loaded with my standard 24oz CO2 tank, and four 125-round pods of paint, I love the way this vest feels. I'm sure the HRT & Merc Vests are the same great quality.
For the few weaknesses I found, I deduct 1 point. But a great vest.

You sure can, I have just one 2+3 on my hrt and that has less area but i can still fit 2 side by side. Ok for your horizontal mounting problem there is a video on the bt website the explains it clearly on how to mount it horizontally, its a bit complicated and might not work with a bigger tank like yours but you can try. BT was pretty quick with fixing there grenade pouch problem (the snap was cutting some grenades and bursting them in the pouch) and I think that only took them about 3 months to get out new velcro versions of them, there really listening to the customer on these things. Great, now I feel weird about writing so much about so little.....
