All of the tactical loadout packages are categorically split into 3 levels of protection for easy purchasing:
Level 1 - Critical Eye, Face, and Head Protection
Level 2 - All elements of Level 1 + Body Protection/Gear Storage [Tactical Vest] + Hand/Finger Protection [Tactical Gloves]
Level 3 - All elements of Level 2 + Sidearm Storage [Universal Tornado Holster] + Weapon Retention [Sling] + Quicker Mag Change [MagCase Storage System]
Our take: The Rico-08 loadout package, rated a Level 1 protection package, comes with high performance eye protection, face protection, and head protection. This loadout package is designed to provide high quality protection for your eyes, face, and head. This caliber of protection is considered by most Airsoft players to be critical protection and should be the bare minimum when engaging in the sport of Airsoft.

3. Diamond Tactical MOLLE StrikeForce Modular Plate Carrier 600D Construction in Black
Our take: If you want the BEST MOLLE Plate Carrier set-up, look no further. We haven't been more excited about any single product here at Airsoft Megastore since the inception of the Diamond Tactical line, and the StrikeForce MOLLE plate carrier vest blows all its competitors straight out of the water, combining value, performance, build quality, and overall usability into a plate carrier package that is SO GOOD, we can barely contain ourselves in describing this product.
Dare to compare: Comparable 600x600D MOLLE plate carrier modular vests sell for $100-$200, SOME without any pouches at all. We encourage you to thoroughly do your research, because you'll be just as shocked us when you find that the Diamond Tactical StrikeForce MOLLE plate carrier is hands down the BEST value on the market for a similar set-up!
The Pantac MOLLE Plate Carrier, which is similar in its set-up, runs about $145 - $190, depending on where you're looking. And in a side-by-side comparison, the build quality on the Diamond Tactical is IDENTICAL. When the manufacturer subjected both the Pantac and the Diamond Tactical to a stress test measuring the strength of the MOLLE webbing, the Diamond Tactical webbing fared better 4 out of 5 times, making it a remarkably high quality product at a shockingly low price.
The set-up: This highly anticipated StrikeForce MOLLE plate carrier modular vest is constructed of operator-grade 600x600D nylon for maximum protection and features SIX (x6) pre-integrated pouches that are INCLUDED in the package from the manufacturer. It comes from the manufacturer with two basic hardened protective structure-holding plates pre-installed in both the front and back of the vest. Both front and back feature a plate carrier compartment that can be opened up to reveal space for two more (one in the front, one in the back) ballistics plates. The pre-installed plates are MORE than enough to protect from BB rounds, but if you're a gear junkie, or you just want more ballistics grade protection, this vest is ready to handle the integration of any standard sized 10" x 13" armor plates.
From the factory, the StrikeForce vest is already equipped with an admin pouch (for maps, docs, ID, etc), two pistol magazine pouches, a flashlight/tac-light pouch, an ammo pouch, and a spare deterrent spray pouch (for pepper spray and/or compact Tasers). All are attached using the modular MOLLE webbing, which means they can be just as easily detached; after all, the vest is highly customizable due to the advanced MOLLE design, and can be retrofitted with the proper pouches/gear to best suit your tactical needs, which is an outstanding advantage of a plate carrier equipped with MOLLE webbing over more traditional, non-modular vests/chest rigs.
The MOLLE advantage: MOLLE, which stands for Modular Lightweight Load Carrying Equipment, allows users of MOLLE-equipped gear the convenience of modifying (hence dubbed "modular") their gear to suit their tactical needs. This advantage, which increases on-field versatility and effectiveness, is the reason why MOLLE gear is becoming the new standard for everyone from the likes of Law Enforcement and Military personnel who REQUIRE the very best in gear down to the recreational Airsoft player. The uses are endless for the Diamond Tactical MOLLE StrikeForce plate carrier system, as essentially you can have different set-ups for your different weapons using this plate carrier as your single constant/base which you can customize.
