Cheaper than most, 8 Pods Native Carry, Plenty of Pockets, Built in Tank, Q-Loader
Overall a great vest! Breaths well, has not been stained in over 15 games. Holds both Q-Loader and Regular 140 rnd pods, and the back tank can adjust to almost any tank. Blends in well with my Spec Ops Fusion Jersey and with the bottom belt I can get a real solid fit (5'8" 160lbs).
Negatives are that you really don't have much flexibility. I'm saving up right now for a Molle setup by BT. Using the Blackcell from specila ops (more features for cheaper), and mixing in 3x 3+3 I can hold 9 / 18 pods + tank, radio, food pouch, belt, etc..
Of course the only reason to carry 18 pods is if you are going to Skirmish in PA for their Invasion of Normandy game and plan to sit there and heavy gun. (Look them up, 4500+ players last year.)
Something you can do is get tihs vest, the BT leg rig, and using its mollys expand as needed.
If you are on a budget, absolutely best buy from what I have seen, unless you get a deal on Spec Ops (they run great ones at times)
