This vest is very well made. It fits my 5'8' 170 lb frame perfectly (I wear it over my motorcycle jacket). No problems with the military base guards. I do not use the ID pocket but instead keep my CAC in the chest zippered pocket. Easy to find and unzip with gloves on.
Great, high quality vest. I am a lady rider though and I wish it didn't have the fat velcro pouch on the chest. I also wish for the addition of side entry pocket or attached D-ring for easy key storage when I am gassing up or running into the store. Fly racing, if you're reading this, let these be ideas for your next vest design. In the end, I would buy it again. It holds up to riding my motorcycle at freeway speeds and daily use. After a few months of daily wear, there is still no evidence of fraying like I experienced with my previous vest.
I researched them all - and chose this one. I hesitated - because the size was Posted as X-large/3X-Large. No need to worry. I am at the small side of X-large; but this vest fits great. It is highly adjustable under the arms on the sides. And it exceeded my expectations on the quality and looks !! I highly recommend it for motorcycle riders !!
The vest is exactly as advertised, bright and extremely well constructed. My one concern was if it would fit both myself and my wife, we are different sizes and it does, easily adjustable. A great value!
