I have had this Rig for almost 1.5 years, and I have had it do very well in the time since. I notice one of you all in a review above, stated that you are 5'6" and 140 lbs. I am going to make a point here. I am 6'2" and 210 lbs, and this Rig fits me like a glove. I did put plates in mine to add realism, depth, and weight to the overall kit. I often do train and spar against Military, Police, and other Civilian Teams within the sport, and this Rig has withstood the torture testing of it all. I like it for it's the fact it is a Modular Rig, and it is a MOLLE system. and we all know what MOLLE allows you to do. Only issue I have with it is that when you pull up the flap, it begins to undo the buttons at the botton of the pouches on your top 3 rows of webbing, should you decide to put much up their. I myself only have Pistol Mags up there, but that is soon to change. WARNING TO ALL, if you compete in the summer time in most areas of the US, the Temperatur under your vest is typically 15-20* hotter than the air on the outside, so Hydration should always be carried.
1.Modular, means lighter than say, an Interceptor Vest, perfect for warmer weather engagements.
2.Enough Webbing to allow for individual preference of Pouch Placement.
3.Tan, works well with MultiCam Pouches, like what I have.
4.Can fit alot of pouches, in my case 4 Rifle Mag Pouches, 2 Pistol Mag Pouches, 2 Ammo Pouches, EMT Pouch, and Utility Pouch, all without using the of it, allowing room for Hydration packs or Other packs.
5. No extra pieces hanging off for shoulders, neck, or below the belt. allowing for better movement, and reducing risk of heat related issues.
The Part that flaps up, will undo Rifle Mag pouches, or any pouch that is 3 rows tall for web mounting. It will only do that at the bottom though. As long as you have your pouches correctly mounted, you do not need to worry about this issue, because it will not take off the pouches. There is webbing on the backs of most pouches. Use them. MOLLE is best explained as an over-glorifies basket weave if done right.
