Mike G
Hybrid tactical vest

Shipping was very quick. This is my first vest. Quality at all stitch points looked good. I used the website sizing guide and sizing was perfect. I hope i never need to find out if it can do what its designed for. I will be much more comfortable as RSO at big events with shooters at all different levels of experience.
