Product Information:
Previously I was obsessed with ALICE gear because of its lightweight functionality, however now that I've used this plate carrier for many skirmishes I have come to realize the true benefits of MOLLE. This vest really helps with modularity in that there is so much real-estate on this vest that I can put virtually whatever I want anywhere!
The problem that I want to address is how big this PC is. I am 5'11'' and 165 pounds and this vest fits pretty well; but it's still a bit large on me. Provided you are bigger than me, this vest is perfect. Any smaller in girth or height and I can imagine this vest being quite a problem.
I must say however that this plate carrier is perfect for exactly that: a plate carrier. I cut out some cardboard and put some plastic sheeting in between with duct tape holding it all together to make replica SAPI plates. Before I put them in this PC felt like a huge rug on top of me and I felt like the darn thing was wearing me. With those "plates" inside, I came to realize how the plates hold up the vest and provide a type of skeleton the PC rests on. Additionally, the home-grown "plates" give a backing that pouches can lean and be held taut against.
To sum things up, I am in love with this plate carrier and after doing so much to it like bending it back and forth to fit with other gear in car trunks, diving and jumping with it, and just simply using it with different pouch layouts I recommend this to anyone.

Pros:
After almost 2 years of OPs and CQB/Field games, this vest has held up:
- Durability
With so much MOLLE all over the place, this vest has so many places to put pouches:
- Modularity for different missions
With Velcro being everywhere this vest can fit anyone at my size or more well:
- Adaptable
And with value in mind, the price of such a vest can be considered quite low considering the overall build of this vest.


Cons:
- Velcro causes some problems with noise reduction/stealth maneuvers.
- Without SAPI plates, this PC is not very effective in holding pouches solidly
- Stitching could use some work but so far I have not had any rips/tears anywhere

Rating: 5 of 5 Stars! [5 of 5 Stars!]
