Products Used:

Marker Setup: A-5
SpecialOps Commando Stock
J&J 12" Ceramic
Strengths: Good lay-out and load. Well stitched together. Good price.
Weaknesses: The shoulder harness has no padding. Clips look a little flimsy.
Review: Just received this and have only fitted it to a youth player (4'9", 80 lbs). Tightening the belt down leaves it loose but not so loose as to be unusable...so that's the small limit for size. It'll definitely fit a much larger player.

The "H" style suspenders can size to fit really small players or tall ones. The problem is that it's just 1" nylon web with no padding. By the time you put a tank, 4x140 round pods, and then wear it for a while it's going to hurt. Body armor will probably mitigate that. The easy solution is to get a pair of surplus H LC-1 (or "Alice") suspender for short players, or Y suspenders (easier and cheaper to find) for adult players 5'3" or taller will add the padding, more attachment points for gear, and higher quality clips to hook the suspenders to the belt.

That's a long paragraph for a relatively minor nit at this point. The gear is a good price and appears really well made. We'll be ordering more to outfit the rest of the family players (with surplus suspenders as an aftermarket add) and use 100 round pods for the smaller players to cut weight and make it fit even better.

I'll update this after some playing has been done with them.
Conclusion: Solid buy. Just be prepared to spend a few dollars more for better suspenders if you want them.
