I would recommend this vest with one reservation. The vest itself is very sturdy, but the magazine pouches are not as functional as a separate pouch. The problem is the side straps tighten around the mags, so when your vest loosens every time you remove one. Other than that it's fine, and you can always attach other pouches anywhere you want.
Shoulder straps will require trimming, unless you weigh 600 lbs. Not a big deal.
Hydration pack attaches firmly and easily, velcro on shoulder straps hold hose nicely.
Well made - durable, heavy duty nylon and stitching feels like it will last a long time
Fits well - wore this for a 5 hour game, perfectly comfortable, doesn't shift around, rub, or loosen
Looks great - the best looking vest I've found for $60.
Chest pouch - great for dead rags
Plate carrier pouches are also good for carrying less needed items like tools
Mag pouches to not work well
