"The vest itself is not bad at all, it holds what you stuff into the pouches, 8 rifle mags, 12 pistol mags, 8 shotgun shell on the shoulder velcro pouch, 8 CO2 12grams in the shoulder velcro pouch. It is tight fitting, it forms well, but kinda short for tall people. It doesn't cover the stomach fully as a vest should, other then that one con its well built, strong. Thick padding, neck protection, a little warm in the summer time play though. So i give the vest 4 stars, i gave the vest to my cousin who plays with me, i've replaced the swat vest with a MOLLE heavy plate carrier because im a support gunner and support for the team, ammo, CO2, batteries. I run with the M249 PARA SAW as well the Taurus PT99 Semi/Full automatic pistol and a M1014 shotgun, i know its much to carry but using that big of a gun in a CQC area is kinda hard, so pull out the shotty-to-hotty and your set, so far i have gotting over 1,500$ worth of stuff from AMS, Kar-98k, M4A1, G36C, MP-5K, AK-74U, two M1014s, M249 SAW, two Taurus PT99s, ruckbag, shotgun sabbert, two shoulder holsters, dropleg, this swat vest. DIAMOND TACTICAL ALL THE WAY. And will be getting more, if anyone lives on the easternshore of Virginia, contact me, we are looking for more squad members, remember windage and elevation to hit the target as well aim small - miss small."
