This is my first vest ever and I have to say, I really like the MOLLE system. I'm a sniper/recon so I'm running a small tool-kit, two speed loaders, a utility pouch, and a large pouch for binoculars. I don't think any of the pre-fitted vests could have held the stuff I'm packing. The vest itself is very well made and it's very cool and it holds an OE Tech hydration bladder (although the bladder is a little too big for some reason. I have to scrunch it down to fit it). Apart from the MOLLE webbing and hydration bladder it's very similar to the cross-draw vests on this site, just more awesome.
I'm just under six feet and bulkier than people in the last reviews (like a shorter version of Tim, imagine) and all the way tightened, this thing is quite tight on me. I have it a little loose when I wear it though. This vest sits where it should above the waist-line and the shoulders are fine for me. The vest leaves alot of open space around your neck, so a shamagh or other kind of neck wrap is recommended.
MOLLE is awesome
Lots of MOLLE space
Built-in hydration bladder
Looks totally awesome with pouches
Vest + OD US Flag patch + OD Shemagh reminds me of that Medal Of Honor spec-ops look
Bladder fits weird in this thing, the pocket is too small
Would definitely be loose on someone small/skinny
