This chest rig is great for players that prefer high mobility. I play as a recon/sniper and this fits the bill perfectly since sniper mags don't require much room. It is a little hard to tell from the picture but the front panel is about 9.5'' tall and 12.25'' wide. This should give you a good idea of how small this thing is. Also, the entire panel is also a large pocket. The pocket almost looks like it was made to carry a plate (those two pull tabs in the upper middle are what you use to access it) but that seems a little pointless seeing how small the rig is.
The construction of the rig is great. When I first got it out of the box it had that good stiff and strong feel. Over time i have softened it up some but it still feels good and strong. The straps that go around your back are good quality and even have little velcro tabs that can be used to hold extra strap length down so it does not just hang there. Also, the pivot joint that goes under your arm is really nice and makes the rig form to your chest. This keeps the extra weight closer to your center of mass and makes is easier to run than with other rigs.
In summary, I love this rig. It does not carry very much but that is what I like. I am 5'10'' and 140 lbs. and when I play, I move A LOT. This rig, accompanied by a couple of thigh rigs enables me to traverse the battlefield quickly and efficiently. I greatly recommend this rig to players who might play as a scout/recon/sniper because of its low profile and non-encumbering size. I do recommend though that you accompany this rig with an additional place to hold your pistol (if you carry one) because of the small amount of real estate.
I think it looks cool...
Position your MOLLE pouches strategically because there's not a lot of room.
