Review: I consider this to be one the best ugrades I have ever purchased for paintball. I used to wear a generic harness that carried my air and four 100 round tubes. I play mainly wood and scenario games. I move a lot, and quickly. I wore the harness around my waist. It would slide, jiggle, twist, bounce when I would move faster than a walk. This became very annoying and very uncomfortable. I started researching tactical vests, with the idea of modifying it to fit my needs. They make a lot of really nice stuff, with a nice price tag to match. Through my search I stumbled upon the Flurry Industries web page. I really liked the vest I saw and the price just couldn't be beat. Plus there was going to be no modifications needed with it, as opposed to a tactical vest. I came to pbreview.com and read the reviews about it. I ordered it that same night.

Two days later ( at no extra shipping costs ), I got my vest. The quality cannot be beat! This vest has everything you need to carry a wallet, keys, tools anything you need for your marker and gear. All of these items are easily accessible from the front of the vest. The mask attachment is an excellent idea, just remember to take your mask bag with you to avoid your lens from getting scratched.

The pod / air holder is very thought out and well designed. You can customize it to your style of play. It uses industrial Velcro that you have to PRY off. The pod holders are really easy to get your pods out of, but can be a little tricky to get them back in quickly. Practice makes perfect though. I have never had anything fall off the back including a 68cu/4500 crossfire HPA tank. Like I said before I move a lot normally at a full sprint of run.

It fits me great (6' 180 lbs). My buddy tried it on (6'-2" 220lbs) and he had no problems wearing it either. My wife tried it on (5'-2" 105lbs) she had difficulty getting it to fit snugly, so it may not be a good purchase for a small person or child.

Conclusion: Worth every penny! Great fit, nothing giggles, moves or bounces, even under running conditions. I would highly recommend this to anyone that uses a remote system for play.
