Plate Carriers have become the standard for military personnel when it comes to ballistic protection and load bearing. The Plate Carrier accepts standard 10x12 plates in the front and rear compartments. The advantage of a MOLLE plate carrier is it allows its user to configure the vest to their needs and the needs of the mission with a wide range of different pouches. In addition on each side of the carrier there are 2 integrated M16 magazine pouches. Inside the plate carrier is an adjustable cummerbund that forms the vest to your body for a secure fit. On the top of the front and rear of the carrier is a panel of hook and loop fasteners for an ID placard or patches. Also, on the rear of the carrier is an emergency drag handle for pulling the user to safety.
Before this vest I was using a Lancer Tactical Cross-draw vest in the OD color. It was very effective, but I soon wanted a degree of customization and since it was a fixed vest, I couldn't make any changes. I went looking for a MOLLE vest with lots of webbing, area on the sides of the vest for mounting, it had to be under 80.00, and it had to have full front and back protection. This vest was the best option for me, so I bought it. First off I want to say that even though it has buckles, they don't actually block any MOLLE webbing and make me feel more secure that the vest will stay intact. That shouldn't matter though, since the Velcro is so strong (I'ts a little hard for me to get off) it won't fall apart anyways. The MOLLE space allowed for me to fit two double M4 pouches onto the front, an admin pouch above them, and a utility pouch on the side of the vest, and there was still room on the front and other side. Overall, I would highly recommend this vest to anyone looking for an affordable MOLLE full body vest.
Lots of padding
Lots of MOLLE
Strong Velcro holding it together
Side MOLLE for utility pouch
The vest will fit a large number of people, whether your large or small (waist-wise, since I'm not in the greatest shape I would know it works)
Some may see it a con that the vest does not have those shoulder pads to route a sling through but I don't care
Other than that no cons
Highly recommend this vest.

Great plate carrier. I have enough room for 2 double stacker m4 pouches, a gadget pouch, and an admin pouch on the front. On the sides and back I have a Blackhawk Utility pouch, a horizontal pistol mag pouch from a belt I bought, a single stacker m4 mag pouch, a vt holster, a hydration backpack with a large utility pouch on it, and a real steel utility pouch. After a year of use, I have no fraying of any seams or stitches. This plate carrier is very comfortable, so that I can carry gear loaded up in each pouch and be only a little sore at the end of a long event. The only mod I have done to this pc is cut out the cummerbund. Now putting it on and taking it off takes less than 5 seconds!
Plenty of MOLLE real-estate
I have no complaints
Overall, this plate carrier is the best for the price. I highly recommend this to all players, especially for outdoor players.
