The carrier you want, at the price that you want.
It's been a happy 6 months for me and this plate carrier. After using numerous vest and carriers, this is by far the best.
Durable as all hell, and an object of envy. After brandishing this vest, it's drawn in alot of admirers on my team here in CT, to the point they want one.
Lots of space for whatever pouches you need.
Easy to use.
Durable, very durable.
Comfy (I dozed off during a few mathces in this thing. Campers really kill the game!)
Those in built m4 holders they say it has, don't work for jack. They're to tight and it's a hassle getting them in, and even worse, OUT. They do however, help in the form of extra side padding. Good for those times I've been rolling around in rocks and areas with protruding tree stumps and brances.
Cumbersome: It's heavier than most, and a bit bulkier. Good if you're kitted out for CQB/Aussualt/Field, if you're recon, sniper, etc etc, you'd be wise to avoid this thing.
It's flaws (in my eyes) are easily overlooked, but reguardless, you get a good deal for your dollar. Just like I did.
Take care y'all, hope this helped.
