"I've had this vest for about 2 months, and it is Great, not perfect, however. The pockets are all great when it comes to holding spare mags, shotgun shells, co2, etc. an the only down side would probably be the pistol holster. whenever you put your gun in, (which in my case is a heavyweight co2 pistol), it falls forward and sags, (its kind of hard to explain); other than that, great space, protection, and the velcro is perfect for my patches. I would recommend this to anyone, and try to get a jump on it when its on sale, like i did which made it an even bigger steal."
