Great vest. I love the lower belt. Well made vest, although the webbing and cross sections feel like they would sag with multiple full pouches/weight (type of material used, sewing, etc), but other than that, there's not much else "bad" about the vest.
*"Hidden" zippered/Velcro pockets on the inside front of the vest that is not mentioned in the description*
-Looks/feels great after adjustments for size.
-Heavy-duty and well made larger belt at the bottom. Superb.
-Ability to adjust many aspects of the vest, to fit your body.
-Two "Hidden" pockets on each side of the front part of the vest (on the inside). Both sides have a zippered pocket, and both have a Velcro pocket, that they don't mention in the description.
-Not all "camel" type hydration pouches will fit in the rear pouch.
-Some stray string, which could lead to ripping/tearing, and eventually causing the threading to come off. Not a big deal, though.
-Two stretchy straps on the front/top of the vest are made of material that will eventually stretch and stay stretched, just like sweatpants/underwear. I wouldn't suggest utilizing them unless you like saggy unusable straps after being stretched numerous times.
