Strengths: I haven't had the opportunity to test it (see info below).
Weaknesses: I haven't had the opportunity to test it (see info below).
Review: I ordered the tactical vest and some other products in their webpage. They charged my credit card but they never sent me the products. They stole my money. I have tested some similar products from PCS and Gen X Global. Their vest are good and they are honest. I like the Gen X Global vest, the quality is good and the price is better.
Conclusion: Avoid it.

Review: Background
A few months ago I decided that I needed a bigger tank since I hated running out of air so quickly with a 48/3000, so then I bought the monstrous 92/4500 Crossfire. Naturally you can't carry it on the gun with a stock in the way, so I had to get a remote and a vest to carry the tank on. I found this vest for really cheap on eBay (total $40 shipped) and I decided to give it a go despite the lack on info on it.

Inspection
When I received the vest it was basically what I expected, straight black with lots of pockets. What I didn't expect though was that there were a heck of a lot more pockets than I though there would be! You can easily carry everything you need for a scenario with you, including maps, a camel back (water bladder), granola bars, 10 round tubes for pistols, everything. I was quite impressed.

As for the stitching, it was solid and I found no loose threads. They didn't look like they'd give way either, unless you put the vest through some serious abuse.

The only issue that I have with the vest is that it doesn't actually have 6 pods on the back as advertised, but I don't really care since I only carry two pods in a regular game.

EDIT 3/31/2009 - Turns out there is no water bladder that will fit in the vest as there is not enough space, but you can take a standard bladder and fold it in half and it should fit as pointed out by bigcat in the comments.

I was also mistaken on the 6 pods, there are addition elastic bands between the existing pods that will accommodate two more pods, however they are not secured by a velcro strap so they can fall out while running. The four pods however should be more than enough for the average player.

Field Review
So I've taken this vest out to the field a few times, and it's held up quite well. The first time I was out was in the summer when it was boiling outside, and I forgot to take the padding out. Combine that with the fact that it was black, it was HOT! Even with that though I wasn't too uncomfortable and it breathed fairly well. I didn't have a remote at the time nor pods, so I couldn't test out the back harness.

After that game I decided I was going to remove the foam insert since I was probably going to play in similar weather the next time. Man, it is NOT easy to remove it. In fact, some parts of the foam were sowed INTO the vest, so those parts could not be removed without tearing it. It was really aggravating, to the point where I just gave up on saving the foam and removed the whole thing in pieces. Performance wise it hasn't affected the vest at all.

The next game I played my pods and remote line arrived so I could finally make full use of the vest. It advertises that it can hold an 88CI tank no problems, but I discovered that it hold my 92CI Crossfire with absolutely NO issues. No forcing it, no modifications to the pouch, stock it will fit a larger tank, which I was impressed with. There's a bit of room left over too, so it MAY fit larger tanks, I just haven't tested it out.

As for how it held up with four pods and a tank on the back, I was a bit disappointed. I don't know if it's unique to this vest or fairly well known (I've only owned this one vest), but you really need to wear a belt to keep it from riding up on your neck in the front. I may have not secured it properly, but I figured it was bothersome enough to mention.

EDIT 17/12/08 - I forgot to mention that this vest has a really annoying radio pouch. The thing is movable and that's a bonus, but the damn thing cannot be secured onto the vest straight as it is now. If it's not secured then you'll have to deal with the thing flopping around a LOT when you run, and dangling down when you crouch. I used a D-Ring taken off of an old water gun that keeps it snug to the left shoulder strap, but now I can't undo that one strap without taking the ring off.
Conclusion: I'd recommend this product to anyone on a budget but looking for a quality vest. It's held up well against crawling through thorn bushes, gravel, mud, and tree bark/branches without any tears. The only really annoying thing is the radio pouch, but if it doesn't bother you or you have a way to secure it down then it's a great vest.
