"Great buy for the price, perfect for that contractor look. The main mag pouches can hold 8 STANAG mags, 2 in each pouch. The pistol mag pouch will hold 2 single stack 1911 mags. 1 hicapa mag or 2 100rd speedloaders but will not close. the 2 shoulder straps are 38 inches in length, the one that goes around your back is 23 inches, the measurements are taken with the straps fully extended and can be adjusted for smaller people. There are also Velcro on the insides of the pouches to stick the pouch covers into to keep it out of the way for quick access. The bottom of the mag pouches are double stitched so there is no worry about it coming apart. I do recommend shoulder pads to go with it and with some creative rigging you can get this to work around your waist."
