Experience:

Products Used:
32* 4+1
APP 2 Pod
Redz 4+1
Cobra Vest
Marker Setup: Tippman Custom 98 with lots of stuff.
Strengths: Pretty much everything. I just played from 9 to 4:30 today, and washed my vest an hour ago, and I can tell you that there are few if any reasons not to buy this vest. I've had the vest for over a month and a half but haven't been able to really field test it out of some backyard skirmishes.
1) It keeps your body and tummy warm. It started at about 45* and went up to 60* and I was comfortable all day.
2) It doesn't move. I flanked this guy, sprinted about 50 yards to their flag, and sprinted another at least 80 along the tape, over hills, back to our flag station. I'm 6'1", 170, and the thing didn't move at all.
3) Reloading is better than any other vest out there. The Ripcord system allows you to take off the velcro without reaching to the end of the strap. It dangles at the opening, pull this and the strap flies open. It is quite easy to put the pod back into the harness because the opening is a sturdy plastic so the opening is always ready.
4) It carries enough. The elastic straps on the pod holders are tough as hell to fit a tube into, you or your teammate will NEVER be able to get it back in. Use it to store a water bottle and your extra 9 oz incase your 20 oz runs out.
5) Play remote? Use the conventional 2-tank-2 setup, or use a four left tank right setup like I do. No remote? Put your pods in at angles for maximum ease of loading. And buy another pod pack so you can carry a total of 6.
6) Stores more than enough. I took a rag, an allen key to strip my gun, an o ring, and chapstick in the chest pocket. Stuff so if something hapenned I wouldn't have to go back to the car. If you have one, use a 2 way radio.
7) Grenade pouches. Use one for a grenade, the other for your barrel plug, sqeegie, etc. The pouches are deep, so anything you can fit.
8) Fully adjustable. It will fit on you no matter what your size is. Probably for 5'7" and upward. If you are a really big guy, don't worry, it still should fit you.
9) Sooooo durable. I don't think it can break. The velcro seems indestructable (can people make better velcro than anyone else???)
10) MASK CLIP! Wow, you don't know how great this is until you try it. You will never have to wear your mask ontop of your head and get it all fogged up. And never forget it either. It is a great piece of equipment.
Weaknesses: 1) A pain to clean. I hand washed it, the foam holds lots of water so its a bit of a pain to dry. However, its easy to hang up (the vest dissambles into a front and back half, and each module comes off).
Conclusion: Even if you've never seen one or used any other harness, get this vest. If you play recball (not only scenarios, this is great for everything) at all, get this vest. Unless you live in really hot areas where this vest can be uncomfortable, get it without hesitation. It is probably my favorite purchase, after my gun.
