This thing looks similar to a standard plate carrier, but since it's missing sides, it's able to breathe much better, keeping you cooler. The stitching looks "good". It's not perfect, there's some fraying here and there, but it will do the job good enough, unless you like making snow angels but on rocks and glass. It comes with 3 velcro pouches and 3 retention strap pouches. You can run 2 mags in each pouch if you wish, for 12 mags total, or stack 3 in the 4 middle pouches, though it closes down the side pouches. Or you can use some of the rentention strap pouches to store a speedloader bb bottle, or your pistol. You can move the straps/velcro to different slots if you wish. It comes with firm padding plates in the front and back, giving the vest a solid feel. There is a pouch in the chest area which I use to store my dead rag. NOTICE: Those long straps everyone complains about? Well they are so you can turn the vest into a traditional style chest rig. Just undo the straps from the backside plate and remove it. Cross the straps in an X style across the backand run them through the loop points just above the side clips at your sides, and you have a chest rig now. Oh btw, I ordered a KWA sr12 with this and noticed my review that had some negative comments isn't showing up.
Included mag pouches for 12 mags!
Convertable to chest rig
The upper chest area has limited MOLLE space. You have to "cheat" to get an OE Tech admin pouch to fit just right.
Yeah the straps are long.
