This vest is pretty sweet. I was skeptical because I've heard some of Lancer Tactical's guns look like shit despite performing well. In this picture, it looks a little darker than MARPAT usually does. I ordered it anyway, thinking I can return it if I didn't like it. I can assure you, it looks great! Matches my MARPAT BDU's perfectly. Some of these vests are pictured with the shotgun shell holder but this one isn't. It IS there, however. It's in the pocket on the right side of the chest, and there is a piece covering the Velcro where you can stick it on. Everything's there! There is also a large pocket for a hydration bladder, but it is between the mesh so you can't really tell in these pictures. Of course there is some MOLLE webbing on the back if you want to add some things. I cannot comment on the holster as I do not own a pistol yet, but damn... PLENTY of pistol mag pouches on this thing. The holster can be removed, revealing a large Velcro patch. You can either take it off, or just adjust it to your liking. The pistol mag pouches on the left chest can be completely removed as well, which also reveals a large Velcro patch. The M4/M16 Mag pouches are fixed, however. Not that you need to worry about them. Where will you put them, anyway? There is also a large Velcro patch on the back. I'm not sure what that's for.
By the way, if anyone can suggest a good backpack (or other good attachments) that can be used with this, email me [email protected] Most of the backpacks I've seen have large, padded straps and I think they would get in the way of the things on this vest.
Comes with everything, shotgun shell holder, MOLLE webbing, bladder pouch. It's all you need.
Color is perfect
Comes with a sweet Lancer Tactical patch ;)
Two M4/M16 magazines WILL fit in each mag pouch, but the elastics around the pouches are very, VERY tight. It may take a moment to put your empty one away.
