Experience:

Products Used:
32 degrees 4+1
Marker Setup: Spyder E-99
polished internals
CMI R-2000 Regualtor with gauge
6 stage expansion chamber
Psycho Balistics Pro drop Foward with gauge
CO2 4, 12, & 20 ounces
Strengths: 1.Pods dont bounce around.
2.Keeps the wearer slender. I was able to hide behind a 1' wide tree while I was being shot at. NO hits.
3.I've got shot about 6 times in the vest, and only one ball has broke.
4.I can fit my needed stuff in the pockets (allen wrenches)
5.Can put a straight shot in the back (between your back and vest)
6.The mask holder comes in handy when you are lugging gear to you playing destination.
Weaknesses: 1.Get laughed at for having body armor.
2.Not accepted at all fields, or tourneys
3.Heavy. Makes you feel slow.
4.Really, extremely hot. This is the worst part of the vest. It's unwearable because of the heat. Don't buy this unless you play in the winter, or live in Antartica.
Conclusion: Great, if the weather is cold. Pods don't move. Prevents breaks. Too hot for me, and I'm used to my apartment being about 90 degrees during the day. Good deal at $55, but I'm already looking for something that doesn't cover the whole upper body.

Where did you buy this vest for 55 dollars?

....If you are looking for something that does not cover the whole upper body then get your self a "normal" harness. If you remove the padding, the vest is no longer all that hot.
