4.0 out of 5 stars Ok 26 Jan 2014
It's ok but it needs to be made to a higher standard. It's not very good value though. Needs improvement.

4.0 out of 5 stars (4/5) Tough Stuff, But Is It Really Mil-Spec? 12 Feb 2011
By T. Ho - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
Now first off, I'm not a part of the military; however, I have military friends who have served, some in Vietnam, some in the first Gulf War, some currently in Iraq or Afghanistan. When I go to the range with them they like to occasionally gear up and I noticed that they like to practice shooting primary with 3 things on them: gloves, goggles/glasses, and THE VEST. They emphasize these 3 because gloves affect trigger and grip; goggles/glasses affect sight; and the vest determines the flow of ammunition (from vest to firearm) along with the convenience of life-saving equipment!

So with that I got myself this vest because of its price and reviews compared to other similar products. Out the box at first I was very skeptical about this vest. I tried it on and I didn't like the feel of it. It was too stiff (it feels like a spine alignment brace), the Velcro always made noise when I simply moved (and I'm not fat either, I'm 5'8" with a waist of 32 at 155lbs), and the vest was also surprisingly heavy regardless of the mesh. This vest, without my treatment (read Recommendation(s)/Suggestion(s) section), will prevent you from leaning forward/bending forward. The belt and adjusting side straps are a pain to adjust (so have friend do it for you while you're wearing it and then give him/her a cookie).

Aside from that, my military friends actually loved this vest. They said that it feels better than the FLC (Fighting Load Carrier) over their IBAs (Inceptor Body Armor) that they use (although not very customizable). It's a fraction of the cost of other competition such as BLACKHAWK! gear and it is actually is very similar in quality. I don't think UTG's intention was really for military or law enforcement (more for airsofting), BUT it most certainly can be used for those purposes (also a great survival gear option)! Because I got this, my friends want to buy the same thing and take it with them on another tour (year) if needed. Anyhow, I gave this a (4/5) because you do have to put work into it before it can be a (5/5) due to minor quality issues.

Pro(s)/Con(s) *As you can see, I take product reviewing very seriously to help others like you in deciding whether to buy or not!*

Pros:
- Surprisingly tough stuff! (Not flimsy mesh material, but heavy duty and thick)
- Lots of pockets (FOUR .223/5.56mm magazine pockets and THREE pistol magazine pockets with Velcro fastening)
- Gives two options of either using a pistol holster (fits Glock 17, M1911, and P220 just fine) or an TWO additional magazine pockets bringing you a total of SIX rifle magazine pockets
- Has a walkie-talkie pocket at the left collar bone
- Macho belt with 2 slim pockets
- Vest has THREE very very large internal pockets/pouches (2 on each side of the front and 1 at the back to hold a plate or a water pouch)
- Does come with a Velcro'ed-on 6-shotgun-shell-holder (mainly for switching to specialty shells such as breaching shells); you may also choose to take this off and put a name patch on instead (when using the shell holder, Velcro may not be strong enough to keep it fastened)

Cons:
- Quality is definitely a (4/5), the vest is a tad bit uneven at certain areas (but you might get lucky and buy a perfect one)
- Very stiff (Please read my Recommendation(s)/Suggestion(s) section below)
- Aside from choosing the 2 mag attachment or pistol holster, this vest is not customizable like the real Fight Load Carriers
- Although this vest is adjustable, it really fits people best who are at least 5'10" (178cm) and have a waistline of at least 34" (86.36cm); so if you're bigger than that and under 7' tall then this will work for you
- Very sharp corners on certain areas (most notably the Velcro sections)
- Although this vest is heavy duty, it is also just heavy (over long trips, it will begin to slow you down); also this vest is not exactly the best quality, yet still strong
- Straps are very annoying and difficult to adjust (I doubt you can adjust it while wearing, but it's still faster than lacing it like BLACKHAWK's vests)
- If you're not tall like me, the shoulder Velcro adjustment is not a problem; however, when you adjust it, it'll leave a fold in the mesh and can feel annoying after a while (could potentially cause blisters around that area if it chafes)
- The vest smells terrible (go wash it because the camouflage won't help if people can smell you first!)
- Speaking of camouflage, the right side rifle stock grip with the plastic tube is black (defeats the purpose of the whole camouflage)

Recommendation(s)/Suggestion(s):
- Round the sharp corners of the Velcro by cutting it (it will take time, but it's worth it)
- Give your vest a heavy wash in the washing machine (this eliminates the stiffness, now I can bend, lean forwards, etc.; also, I feel that my movement is not restricted!)
- As for the Velcro noise, it's going to be there until you break into it more often
- Take out that darn plastic tube from the right shoulder, believe me, that plastic tube does not help and it also adds weight! (make a small incision at the bottom of the black rubbery area, pull out the tube, have your wifey or a really good friend (if you don't know how yourself) sew that up good)
- Adjust your pistol holster and make sure when you have a holstered loaded pistol not point in a direction that will cause you harm or death!
- Cut any extra threads (don't pull them off, you might undo a sewing)
- Take off the little belt pockets if you're not going to use them to decrease weight (I took them off to attach bigger better pouches)

Bottom line is, whether you're in the military or not, this vest is great as quick secondary choice tactical/emergency response jacket in real life situations. As for airsofters/paintballers, this vest is definitely the best choice to play with.

Thanks for reading this review. Enjoy!

5.0 out of 5 stars Combat Used, now it's my part of my "Grab and Go" 5 Feb 2010
By Mark Sutton - Published on Amazon.com
Originally, my Sergeant bought a knock off this while we were in Iraq, I was impressed with the layout so I bought my own -I bought this EXACT one from UTG in ACU Scheme- He kept Shotgun Shells in his and I never did, I replaced with a Arabic/English Name Badge as we were working with the Iraqi Army. After some use and Sun, his turned an odd Reddish Shade of ACU while mine the UTG One stayed the correct ACU. It held up great holding all my Stuff, 8 30rd 5.56mm Magazines, 4 15rd 9mm Mags, my Sig 226, Radio, and my Knife, nice and secure with a Layout that I really liked. The only Thing I added to it was a Pistol Leash for my Sig.

Now it sits, Hanging up with the Same Layout, in lieu of the 2x 5.56mm Mags I have 40Rds of 8mm Mauser Ammo in each Pouch -as my Rifle now is a K98k, and no Radio... A just in Case thing I suppose. I love taking it when I go shoots.

It's wayy better than even Mil Issue and Cheaper than the bigger Name Brands which don't hold up as well.

5.0 out of 5 stars Everything you need in a Tac Vest... 9 Oct 2008
By A. Aragon - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
This vest was surprisingly cheap, but even more surprisingly well made. It's thick and comfortable and very adjustable. I use it for airsoft and it effectively becomes armor, can't even feel it through the vest, at close range.

It's got a removable cross-draw holster that works great, and plenty of pockets for anything you need. It's got a radio pouch, but if you have a walkie with a 'fixed' antenna that sticks out, it's not going to fit comfortably. You have to skew the walkie to get the antenna to stick out the side, but it's not that bad.

Otherwise, very adjustable, you can go from a really big guy (me) down to just about anyone. The straps have a bit of a tendency to slide but if you re-loop them they'll stay put.

Love this vest, I say go for it. The only difference between this one and much more expensive vests I've seen is that the adjustable straps on the side are leather string on the expensive ones, but that seems more likely to break honestly.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazingly well made for the price 13 Feb 2010
By John K. Sanders - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
I was expecting the vest to be a bit of a step down from professional gear. Not so. I was very much impressed with the sturdiness of the materials and stitching. The webbing and mesh are very high quality and are almost heavy duty to a fault. Not very light weight. But that is precisely what I was looking for. So it worked out.

My primary purpose in buying the vest was for tactical target shooting practice "run and gun" scenarios with friends in a competitive timed environment, occasional paintball and most importantly as a GET OUT OF DODGE setup. I carry a mossberg persuader or and SKS tactical long arm and a glock 40 as a side arm. I was particularly interested to see if the 20 and 30 round SKS/AK mags would fit and they do well. You're not going to fit two in each pouch but 1 is not a problem. Even for the 30 round. I put the 30 round under my arm and the 20's in front. The 15 round Glock mags also fit very well in their intended pouches. My Glock 22 fits perfectly in the side arm holster. It would be a bit large for a smaller pistol. I think a desert eagle would even fit well. It also has 2 hidden inside pockets. It is easily worth the money.

A few minor dislikes: The velcro side arm holster should be stitched down. The vest comes with an alternative large 2 mag velcro pouch that could replace the side arm holster but I won't need it so I may stitch it down my self. What I don't care for is that the velcro makes a little noise as you move. It is continually attaching and reattaching. It's strapped on as well so it's not coming off. It's just if you stand up and sit down with a large pistol in it you can hear a little velcro action. It's a very minor point but one to consider if your "ops" require perfect silence. The radio pouch is a little small. I was able to slide my Blackberry Storm in the pouch but anything larger would have to be wedged in. Could be used for something else though I suppose. Most radios have a good clip and or ear piece anyway. The shotgun shell elastic loops are for 410 shells or smaller rounds only. 20 and 12 gauge shells will not fit. You could put rifle rounds here but unless you have a bolt action rifle (which would defeat the purpose of having the mag pouches) I don't know why you would use it. My thought: Pull it off and use it somewhere else or put some other cool looking patch there. That's my plan. I am able to fit 10 12 gauge shells inside the pocket itself though.

Overall verdict: I highly recommend because of the quality heavy duty construction and materials. This thing is sturdy and will hold up to serious use. Looks great. Fits well.

3.0 out of 5 stars Great Vest but not one size fits all. 23 Mar 2012
By BlackDogTX - Published on Amazon.com

This vest is surprisingly well made with a ton of storage. Bad news is, it's just way too snug for me. I am 6'4" and 270 pounds. I wish it was bigger but will just have to give it to a smaller associate..
