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.

Molle for verticle or horizontal tank configuration
Got this vest for free by a paintball elder. Much thanks to YNOT of Tango Alpha2 if he reads this review. Anyway, I was looking to purchase a Tippmann Assault until he gave me this vest. The vest is a woodland print and came with no accessories. I purchased a V-Tac woodland horizontal tank pouch. Used this vest today and loved the horizontal config. I had my tank attached to the gun until today. The vest holds several tubes of paint, has a hydration bladder pocket and molle runing up and down the shoulder straps. The hor. tank pouch took up all the molle on the back and is stuck like glue. Nice breathable material and good overall quality. Only other options I want/need are the radio pouch and multi-pouch for the little extras. I've scratched the tippmann assault plan and will go for a more molle covered vest down the road. So I can use what I already have and save some cash. Not sure of the price of this vest on the market but if the price is right, don't hesitate to buy it.
Highly recommended. Great vest to dive into the world of woodsball.
