I live in a tropical country, very hot and humid, I play mainly woods and the usual vest are just too hot and heavy for long games, this is the perfect blend between a speedball belt and a milsim vest. The shoulder straps are perfect to balance the weight of the pods plus the tank, my back doesn`t hurt after a full day of playing.
The things I`m missing in this vest are a couple more pod spaces and 1 more pocket to store squeegees, car keys, smoke bomb, etc..
If you love milsim and live in a hot country, this is the perfect vest for you. just try no to be very trigger happy because you will only have 4 pods lol.
