Viktos makes some great gear. I personally own a couple of their bags & other gear. The fit of the soft armor in the Perimeter 40 is a great fit. I watched a couple review videos before making this purchase because it's not cheap, but once I received it & put it together, I was not disappointed. I bought this bag for my next depoyment coming up soon. I neede to replace my old go bag that I bought in 2003 that has stood up to several deployments & a lot of additional travel. I've bought a couple.other bags along the way, but I have good feelings about this one lasting at least a decade of use & abuse!
