    The most thin & comfortable vest I have worn. Custom tailored for a perfect fit. Easy cleaning for the ballistic panels: damp sponge & mild soap; and towel dry.

    Cheap Straps.. Bottom roles up on me.. and ride up like my wife's g-string.. sheesh.. Need to replace the carrier ever year or so. Wish I had the old generation back..

    Overall a good carrier, except where the horizontal front straps are, they start coming undone and grabbing onto the uniform shirt..

    The vest is fairly comfortable to wear. I agree with the strap issue. On my most recent vest it came with the option of the four straps (show in pic) or two much wider straps. I prefer the two straps over the four.

    Vest is good, Carrier sucks...straps get stretched, lose their elasticity, then you have to tie the straps in a knot to make 'em short enough to attach without overlapping the other side's straps...

    very good vest to have and use, only draw back is it rides up on your neck sometimes while in vehicle.

    Is ok.. When I used it it would fold easily and I had issues with it not sitting right on me. Guess I need to lose more weight huh.

    Probably the best vest I have ever owned. I had it fitted so no problems folding or pinching. The velcro it came with originally did not hold well so I had a tailor sew on new heavy duty ones and that fixed the only problem I had with it. Light and cool.

    This is the most comfortable vest that I have worn. The straps are cheap but they can be fixed

    Good form fitting vest. Cheap straps velcro is worn out, and the trauma soft plate stinks. But with the second chance hard and soft plate in there, the vest is worth the money.

    Very comfortable, I swap the covers out each time I wash and it has held up well
