I never got issued MOLLE gear, and after playing with this I am still partial to the old ALICE LBE gear. The vest is padded in back and holds a bladder. There are lots of ways to adjust the vest and attach pouches. The dump pouches are very useful. The mag pouches needed their retention bungees reconfigured. The AR pouch barely fit a PMAG, and I was stuffing it in there with force. Also, the vest is small. I am 5'7" and have a 34 waist. The vest goes down to my belly button. Is that how these are supposed to fit? I don't really know. Also if you have a waist larger than a 44 you aren't getting this thing on. A friend who is 6'3" and has a 40 waist could barely get the vest on. I just don't like the MOLLE setup. I'll stick with my LBE for now. Since this is my first experience with MOLLE gear I have nothing to compare it to. Also, I ordered tan but got sent green. No big deal, I like OD green and will keep it.
Pros: H2O bladder space in vest, useful dump bags
Cons: mag pouches need tweaking, vest is short/small...
Would recommend: Yes
