"I'ts a pretty good vest, but it lacks the flexibility of an ALICE or MOLLE system, because you can't remove the pouches."
"Good for the price. In a way, too many pockets that can't be removed. I ended up cutting a couple off on the right side. Side adjustible straps (4) could be better. Some buckles, I still don't know where they could be useful. Padding is a bit thick and excessive."
"this vest is great to carry almost anything and then some but there was to much mesh at the top that digs in at the neck but this can be fixed with a knife and a lighter also that there were so many straps to hold stuff but some of them seem to have no purpose"
"THIS IS THE BEST VEST EVER. If you are into military and hunting this is the best vest. There is room to pack a shovel on the back and you have alot of room to carry stuff. It fits anyone. Buy this vest and you will be pleased"
"this is a good tactical vest for airsoft. I got mine in German Flectarn, so it blends into the wooded area well. There's so many pouches that it can hold anything from a medical kit to magazines. Good buy for the money."
"I also have two of these one black one German pattern. the side pockets are huge enough to have Saiga 12, 10 round mags there are plenty of space for other mags and things. I use it for 3 gun shooting matches, also the back has a compartment for a camel back bladder. The thing works great for what I need."
"This tactical vest is pretty decent for the price. It will hold a lot of gear. The 2 large pouches on the sides are kinda difficult to reach into without taking the vest off, but if you have a partner, they can just get what you need for you. I also had to have some of the velcro resewn on, since it was coming off. I like the adjustability of the size. You can make it fit you tightly for a secure, low profile, rattle-free carry. I like the front binocular pouch as well. Overall nice vest considering the price."
"This tactical vest is good for airsoft as it has a lot of pockets for extra magizines and accesories. The side pockets hold two 5,000 airsoft bottles. The magizine pockets are big to fit any size of pistol magizines. Could posibily hold m16 mags. But i doubt it. It is comortable and padded well. You could probably ajust it to fit over a molle body armor carrier. Well designed tactical vest."
"This vest is good for airsoft. It has many pockets to be used as a load bearing vest or tactical vest. It has 13 pockets in all and has a hydration system pouch on the back! It is a large pouch that can hold a big hydration system. Has two puches on each side that are diagonal from each other. They also hold airsoft m16/m4 magizenes. So do all the other pockets. Also it has two grenade pockets as well. Has 5 pockets on the front that hold airsoft m16/m4 mags and two on the side. The airsoft mags fit perfectly and has a velcro pocket for maps and near the buckles in the front and near the binocular pouch. VERY comfortable with all the padding. Can adjust from a large frame body to a very small fram body. So you don't have to worry about buying a tactical vest that fits your size. Can fit over body armor and plate carriers as it can adjust. The two large pouches on each side are perfect for putting water bottles in if you don't have a hydation system. Or you could put a smaller hydration system because it has a velcro hole that you could put a tube through. Over all a great inexpensive tactical vest that has all the pockets you need. Is 100% polyester. Can be hand washed with mild detergent or soap. Do not use chloring bleach, yellow soap cleaning fluids or solvents. It will discolor or deteriorate it."
"This is a great piece of LBE (Load Bearing Equipment). The side bags would be great for MRE's or dry socks. There are straps on the back for rain gear and the ammo pouches will hold a full 180 rd Combat Load plus one in the rifle. A small pack like the TRW-138 and water blatter (MOLLE-458) would make this a perfect LRRP rig. Wouldn't make a good police rig, no place for a pistol or Cop stuff."

"This is one of the best vests i have ever owned. i am into tactical entery and if you are looking for the best bang for you buck this is it. i carry 180 rounds ( 6 AR-15 mags ) medical supplies pistol ammo radio handcuffs paracord water and other misc. in it. AWESOME!!!!"
"I bought this vest a week ago. I went back and forth about giving it five bullets or four. If you are just looking at the utilitarian aspects, then it is probably a 4. It's downsides are that none of the pockets are removable (which isn't too bad, as it means they will never come off when you don't want), and that there were (at least on mine) two seams that stuck out into the neck/collarbone area and were burned for sealing, which made them hard and jagged, which scratched my neck when I moved to some positions. I cut those seams off diagonally and then globbed some black silicone on them and that fixed the problem. As far as what you get for the money, its a 5: It has plenty of room for supplies, and it is going to be part of my BOB (it already has lots of random tools like silicone glue, zip ties, etc, and I am going to add some duct tape and a big roll of gauze). I cut out the divider between the two clips pockets in the front so I have two big front pockets instead of one. This allowed me to put 50 shells right in reach. I also attached a knife sheath using the velcro strap from one of the shoulder clip packs, as well as one of the strap hold-downs that are on the shoulders, and it sits firmly and work well. I wore it all day Sunday just to see how comfortable it was and it never got annoying or uncomfortable, even when running. Overall it seems like it is going to be quite durable. I grab it by the straps and sling it around all the time with no worries. Lastly, I am 6' tall and about 145lbs (skinny), and I was still able to snug it down tight around my chest and shoulders."
"I recently bought this vest a a purpose to shoot with..it deals and can handle everything i need it for. It has numerous pockets that come in great handy and adjusts easy to every size person. good for the price you pay. i recommended it to my friends and they purchased one. nice camel pack on the rear side and just an overall great buy."
"awesome vest. The only reason i gave it a 4 is because i ordered a black one and got a green one. Not upset, i like the green better anyways. Easily holds 8 AR 15 mags, 4 field stripped MRE's in the sides, military compass, Fire Starter, Knives, 550 chord, has room for a hydration system in the back, I couldn't be happier with any product for the price. I bought mine for when I shoot but also for a if it hits the fan situation. Packed correctly with the right stuff you could probably live for a month or two(assuming you weren't putting your bullets into bad guys and knew how to survive in the wilderness) just off of this vest. I'm gonna mount a buck knife to the shoulder strap and a machete/saw combo to the back. very good set up. Being a Marine I love this kind of stuff. I'm a gear queer(as they call it in the marines). Very comfortable. Good weight distribution."
"Great vest for $24, provides tons of room for anything you may need to use it for, very comfortable and adjustable. In training for Ground team in Civil Air Patrol, I found this vest to be perfect for use as a 24hr pack, it has room for canteens, medical pack, food, compass, notpad, poncho, signal mirror, flashlights, SAR, etc etc Though this vest is not as customizable as a MOLLE or ALICE vest, for the very affordable cost it really does give great quality.Durability: *****Storage: *****Accessibility: ****Customizability:**Adjustability:*****Price:*****"
"This vest has room for it all. Whether for shooting, hiking, or an addition to your bug out plan this vest suits everyone's needs. I purchased other vests that restrict what you can put into them. I moved everything from the old vest to this one and had a ton of room left over. It is very durable and a great value. It is very adjustable being 6'3\" and 240lbs, it can fit the largest man. You can easily wear a duty belt and attach a leg platform and hip holster without any restricted movement. I would have gladly paided three times as much as I did!"
"These vests are perfect for paintballers. The side pouches are large enough to house three full-size tubes of paintballs, and the front pouches are perfect for 10-shot tubes. The light weight makes it ideal for games in the woods, not to mention the Camelback option rounds out this very durable vest. Worth the investment and stands up well to abuse."

"I have had this vest for about three months and have used it in several completions mainly in dense foliage. It has held up extremely well and looks almost new. Very comfortable and is not to hot to wear in the summer. Enough pouches to carry everything: 2 large side pouches (can be used as a holster)these have two openings, a large one that opens the entire pouch and a small that only opens a small section; 6 magazine pouches (4 can hold 2 magazines for a total of 10 magazines large enough to hold a pair of sun glasses); 1 binocular pouch; 2 small pouches beside magazine chest pouches; and a pouch for a hydration system that has a drawstring closure that makes it into two separate pouches. There are two hook & loop (Velcro like material) straps on each shoulder, these are large enough to carry a Red Ryder BB gun by the stock and lever. On the back are 8 straps that form individual loop carry straps. Overall this is an awesome vest for the money, very happy with it. My only complaint is the adjustment straps on the side sometimes slip loose, but not all at once, and you can easily fix this by taking the excess strap and running it back through the buckle. I am 5' 4.5\" and 110 pounds this vest fits me perfectly."

"Bought this vest a few months ago and have beat the snot out of it and besides the dirt and dust still looks brand new and is holding up as well. I use it for Airsoft and wont hesitate to take it on duty with me if the need arises. More than enough room for mags, radio, rations, water bladder, and ANYTHING else I can think of. I plan on purchasing it in BLACK as well. I own 4 different chest rig/vests and this one is a first choice to set it up and usse it for a \"grab and go\" rig. Im a bigger guy too and it is ALOT better than most vests for my frame."
"A backpack on your chest would be a simple way to put it, this LBV is better than the one I was issued, in comfort and storage space also there's spots on the vest for you to attach even more gear."
"I purchased one of these packs,although its a surplus SA Army version in brown. I have used it for two seasons now doing wildland firefighting and it is so much more useful than using a normal backpack. The accessability to your gear is great and the weight distribution is both front and back giving better balance. I cut the pocket dividers out as fitting a radio in the shoulder pocket with the divider was a nuisance. I have customised mine by adding a small pack to the back to give extra storage. All round a great piece of gear."
"For $24 this vest is an outstanding value! For Search and Rescue and Civil Air Patrol I find it to be the perfect 24 hour gear. I can carry everything I need for 24 hours in the wilderness: Military poncho, 2 MREs, knife, tactical light, compass, lightsticks, 3L camelbak bladder, socks, survival kit, first aid kit, gloves, orange vest, radio, shelter tarp, etc. It can be used in conjunction with a 72 hour pack such as the Motherload so all your gear can be carried together when needed. Well balanced, and surprisingly well make, this pack is designed to be cinched down on the sides and sit on your hips, with added stablization from the shoulder straps - meaning it can really be carried all day - something that most of these tactical vests cannot do. I'm very pleased and have recommended the vest to several others."
"I needed a tactical vests for road patrol use. I read the reviews and picked this one. Its got a lot of pockets. The vest can hold everything you can think of. I got this vest for response to an active shooter. It holds my AR mags easily, 30 and 20 round mags. For the price it is a great vest and will recommend it to others in my department. Now I have to find stuff to fill the pockets."

"I like this vest, the only reason I'm giving it a 4; is because I am forced to buy a droped leg holster for my pistol. But this is a good vest very tough and durable. AK mags are a little too big unless you use the 20 rounders, but I fixed that with some velcro straps that I sewn on. Mine has enough food and water for 1 full day and 300 rounds of ammo on it."
"This is a great LBE. Doesn't pinch the neck last some V-style vests will do. I have alot of equipment in it and still have room for so much more. The back has zippers for a camelback, or just to store things like clothes, etc. The side pockets are huge and the large front pockets holds my med kit which has just about everything except the Nurse herself. I have a boot knife and a small LED flashlight strapped on the front/upper harness by the colar bone. The vest is very durable. I use it also for paintballing to carry my ammo, air, food, etc. I'm always rolling down hills, running, jumping with it on and it feels very comfortable. The only reason I'm giving it 4 stars is like the other poster, it doesn't hold my AK mags very well. Only smaller box mags would work the best, but I still love it."
"This is a pretty decent vest for the money. Lots of room. It *could* use a few more of the heavy elastic bands on each of the shoulder straps, but I will just sew those with heavy black thread in the near future (not a deal-killer by any means). It comes pretty \"smashed\" in the shipping box...I packed all of the compartments with crumpled newspaper for a few days to get it into proper shape, and for fitting. Worked out perfectly!"
"I was a little skeptical at first when i saw the price but i have used a few times and would recomend this vest to anyone looking for a LBV. Plenty of space with rugged construction makes obtaining decent equipment without emptying your bank account"
"I saw this vest on a number of team members at a SAR Conference in Iowa this summer. they all had wonderful things to say about price, durability and functionality of this vest. I finally got mine today!Right away you can tell it's quality made and will last for a while. Like many have mentioned, I will be removing the divider in the front two large pockets. I am not carrying magazines, and these pockets are great size for GPS units and the larger Motorola Radio our team uses on searches.This thing is customizable for fit, almost to a fault. If you're short the straps are there to make it fit, if you are tall and skinny, the straps are there to make it fit. If you're too short for your weight, like me, the straps are there to make it fit. You can adjust so many different angles on this vest that it can't help but fit you just right and still look very professional and not snag on things due to gaps or puckers in the material.The larger pockets are equally placed on the back hip area, and being a K9 handler, these will be perfect for extra water for my dog. The bladder pocket on the back is adjustable for a smaller or larger bladder, and if you use the smaller size, you have an extra storage space below the bladder for less than regularly used items. There are also straps off the bottom to hold a poncho or rain-gear of some sort.Like many have said, this vest will carry alot, and will do it in a balanced manner that is easy to wear. Very happy with this purchase, it seems to be all I had hoped for."

"Not the worst web material I've seen but not \"good\"either.Pouches are permanentely affixed and flimsy.No real options for adding more or moving them to a more desireable/useful position. Waist pouches are to wide,to deep and unecessary unless you carry two gas masks.They're in the way of a belt/hip holster which leaves the only handgun option a shoulder holster under the vest.The top straps flop to either side of the top flap which is pretty snaggy,and makes the straps pointless because they don't hold them closed."
"Works really well i am currently using it for airsoft, it carries so much and is not that expensive, and the shipping is wicked fast even on regular"

"Depending on your use and purposes there are both benefits and downfalls to the vest. For my purposes it works great. I have adjusted mine to carry a small pack, and made the straps on the bottom longer. With a little imagination and creativity this vest can be adjusted to suit the individual's needs. Also shipping is fast, I ordered on Sunday and received it on Wednesday. Great value for the price."
"I bought one & I think it's the best kit for the price. 4 TAPCO 30 round AK mags fit snugly in each of the large front pockets. I sewed a 6\" piece using 1\" folded piece ( 1/2\" tab) of Velcro on the 2 AR magazine pockets so that they now fit the AK mags. This gives me a total of 10 30 round AK mags I can carry in this vest. This makes it a dual caliber vest 5.56 or 7.62 without any problems. (Using a speedy sticher sewing awl makes this modification a lot easier.)"
"Amazing vest for the price. If you have a big frame (like me) this vest is for you!"
"This is the best Tac vest ever! There are pockets for everything! It is very adjustable and very comfortable. This makes a great shotgunner's vest. Unless you\uFFFDre a terrorist with illegal live grenades, you can use the grenade pockets for 00buck. The materials are VERY durable. If you\uFFFDre a normal person on a budget like me, this is the vest for you. Apocalypse ready."
