"This is good for anyone starting. The universal pouches help with trying new things. It also can take a lot of abuse. I've had mine for about 7 months now and have started to make repairs. ( The stitching on the right side, I put a full metal pistol in the pouch and after a while it became too much. One of the plastic side clips broke mid game. Not sure what happened there.)
I gave this four stars because it is a great way to get more into the game quickly. ( Mags, ect. ) It doesn't hold it's structure like "real" plate carriers do. The universal pouches also don't come off. So you're stuck with them.
After using it, I'm glad I bought it. For the price it's not bad at all. Not the best in the world l, but it gets the job done."
