Used my Echo vest for the first time yesterday. We were playing in thicker woods/brush and the vest held up pretty good. Didn't feel any bouncing or anything when running around so it fit great and is very adjustable. Didn't even feel when I got shot in the back so I guess that is a plus.
Only concern I had with it was the velcro flap holding the pods in. While I was running and crawling around, the velcro flaps came loose and my pods were not secured in. Even though the flap came loose, the pods still stayed securely held in and luckily, the caps stayed shut. This happened 2 out of the 3 games I played. BUT I was going through some really thick grass and brush that typically most people do not go through so I'm sure that had something to do with it.
Overall, it was a good buy and definitely worth it.
