I bought this for my son to "train up". It was much better than I expected so, I bought myself one. The vest itself seems made of good material. The quick release "handles" and plastic used for the quick release attachments could be better. The molle pouche zippers are good enough for this price point, but I believe if used heavy handedly and often, they may be an issue in the long term. The snaps of the single mag pouches that come toward the front of the waist do not snap secure enough for me. Better plastic, snaps, and zippers, would negate my issues with this vest even if they offset those changes with a price increase. Overall, this vest is a great deal for someone looking to have the ability to use and combine all of their "equipment" in a tactical and higher functioning defense scenario. Add plates and you're more prepared and protected than you were before this purchase. Again, if the improvements are made and they reasonably upped the price, I would give 5 stars in a heartbeat.
