The three rifle pouches were too small for my Magpul 30 round magazines. I could cram them in, but then they were hard to remove which is not a good thing. The stitching would probably have ripped out if I used it. Some of the other vests I looked at could put two MagPuls in each pouch for a total of six.
I am 5'10" and 180 pounds and the medium vest did fit me although I was almost to the ends of the adjusting straps. I should have ordered the extra large CTVL2916D size.
I thought the overall quality of the vest was good and would have kept if the rifle and pistol magazine pouches were slightly larger.
The material of this vest if fairly well made. Fabric is about the same thickness as my BDUs and good quality. The velcro is nice, and the fasteners are solid. The mesh is highly breathable, but it is the one area of the vest that I question. It looks like it will be able to fulfill it's intended purpose, which is to act as my tac vest until I can get a fully customizable plate carrier and pouches.
The product comes stock with a general utility pouch, 3 magazine pouches for the M4, a pistol holster with a pistol magazine pouch built in, three pistol magazine pouches, and two pistol magazine pouches on the utility belt. All of the magazine pouches are single stack, meaning that you can carry a pistol, 6 pistol magazines and three rifle magazines with the stock product.
When you receive this product, everything will be tightened to the max and it will only fit the smallest of users. It can be adjusted, however. The straps are the same basic type you'd see on other tactical gear or backpacks, so it's not difficult in the least.
The belt will need to be adjusted too. There is velcro underneath, so it's simple to adjust. It is a small hassle with the magazine pouches, though.
There is a certain amount of customization that you can do to this product, although not a lot. There is MOLLE style webbing in the back that you can attach a hydration pack to, which means that you can attach other things if you so desire or leave it bear so that you can wear a tactical pack. The pistol holster and the two pistol mag pouches on the belt are also detachable. The belt is apparently load bearing, which means that I should be able to add extra pouches for my needs.
Another note is that the webbing that the pistol holster is attached to is slanted at a 45 degree angle. Good for the pistol (it is a cross draw vest, after all), but not so good if you're taking that out to add additional pouches of your choosing.
Loaded up with the gear you are using and properly adjusted, this vest does not feel that heavy and distributes the weight alright. I don't have other points of comparison, however.
This product was received in a timely fashion via FedEX with 1 day delivery. The box is absurdly large and stuffed with shipping paper, and the product does have a strange smell out of the box that quickly goes away with a little bit of airing out. Still, it came in alright and undamaged and that's what counts.
This product gets a 4 out of 5. The reason why I say that is because I thought the rifle magazine pouches would be double stack, and the fact that they're not is a disappointment. I also haven't worn it out in the field, which keeps me from putting my full support behind it. But it's good quality and $20 less expensive then if you bought it at a surplus store.
1) When I received the item it smelled horrible, like new plastic since it was, which is bad for hunting since every animal in the woods would've been able to smell it, so I had to soak it in a tub with a scent removal shampoo in order to get the stench off. I had to do this 2 times in order to fully remove a scent from it. When I got to the area for hunting I wound up rubbing it around in the dirt out there to give it that natural local area smell.
2) When I put my Glock model 22 or S&W M&P .40 in the front holster it kind of sags a bit, so it doesn't stay flush against your body like it should which I'm sure with a sewing kit the issue would be fixed.
Overall it was still a good useful purchase, those were minor complaints, it was great to keep my turkey calls in while hunting and carry my sidearm as well as extra shotgun shells and clips for my .40, so after about 3 years of use and ownership I am still happy with my purchase.
