For: Pantac USA 1000D Cordura Molle MOD Tactical Vest (Medium/Coyote)Product Information:
I bought this vest (as well as the Pantac RRV Hydration Pack) to replace my plate carrier and I couldn't be happier with the result. Unfortunately, however, when the vest arrived one of the rivets that connect the middle chest molle platform to the shoulder straps immediately came undone. Fortunately I had a rivet gun handy but had to take a trip to the hardware store to find a replacement rivet. After that unpleasantness I attached the vest to the hydration pack and was very impressed. The whole unit was very secure and, once adjusted, very snug. There are shoulder straps that wrap underneath your arms which really help keep the unit as a whole in place and not jostle around during play. I have a 34" waist and found the vest and hydration pack combo to be a bit loose around the waist line. When trying it on I was concerned but during play I didn't even notice it. I am very pleased with the vest and hydration pack combo. I would have give this item 5 stars if the rivet didn't fail.
-Can be adjusted to fit very snug
-Lots of molle (Only "Rambo" players would want more)
-Excellent alternative to a plate carrier (when combined with the Pantac RRV Hydration Pack)
-Poor rivet quality (at least on the unit that I received)
