Looks like a very immpressive vest. Ive used quite a few now (HM Supplies, M83 SA and Artkis) and the main problem I have always had is the ammo pouches tearing, especially since the A2 mags came in. I found with all three though, that the pouches often prevent you from pulling the weapon into the shoulder. Too many pouches can be an issue too, as joe squaddie will be tempted to carry too much kit and I often found pouches snagging on vehicles as i was exiting. On real time ops what do you really need to carry, ammo, field dressings and water and thats about it.
