    Post  Synergie Thu Apr 14, 2011 4:45 am

    My brand new Tactical Vest from eBay , after paying for the vest on the 30th of March, the Hong Kong seller posted it on the 2nd of April by regular airmail, I received it this morning on the 14th which is just under two weeks shipping time, overall the timing on this process is expected.

    I will now go through each aspect of the vest in turn, providing thumbnail images which have an embedded link to imageshack, where you can find a full-size of the image.

    Overview of the Vest

    Issues with the Vest
    Even after pulling part of the holster apart,
    the Mav STILL won't fit
    5 out of the 6 magazine pouches do NOT fit The ONE mag pouch that was a little wider than the others My solution, pull the thin threading between each pouch to create one cavity.
    I've tucked the outer mag pouch flaps in and the inner pouch in it's normal closed position

    To the keen few at home you will see a sneak peek of my Torch attachment.

    I have not dug deep enough into making any adjustments for size etc. Putting it on after unboxing it yielded a good fit as it was, however there are straps everywhere to allow for size adjustments, the vest also features alot of padding around the shoulders and back. Speaking of padding, there is a padded panel just below the right shoulder, this allows a firm, but comfortable place to position your butt stock. Breast pockets on the front are big enough to carry miscellaneous darts (in my case, suction darts for my Mav) AND mobile phones, in terms of communication devices, a specific 2-way radio pocket is located just below the left-shoulder (I do have one fitted in the photos, look for the small antenna poking out. Large pockets on the inside on the left and right can fit 2x 6dart mags each, I don't think I'll need to use those pockets for that purpose however.

    Some final thoughts, after turning three individual mag pouches into one big one allows you to insert to Nerf mags into it. Unfortunately, I wouldn't recommend buying this vest due to the brute force methods to allow comptability with Nerf mags, that said I still love the vest and the tacticool factor. Got any questions, or requests for extra photos, don't hesitate to ask.

    Better late then never, anyway looks ok, but as you said not really nerf mag compatible. Just a regular overall vest. Gratz though enjoy

    Well done sir, funnily enough, I've been looking at the exact same vest and wondering whether or not to buy it.

    @Mods/admins - his double post was my doing

    Thanks for the review, Reece. I also saw this vest on EBay, I believe it is a Hong Kong seller. Now that I know the Nerf mags (especially the 18-dart straight mags) don't fit in the pouches very well, I think I'll skip this vest.

    I forgot to mention that originally, which gives context to the shipping time.

    The holster looks as though it isn't a universal pistol holster. Maybe a minimised NF could fit but no way a mav/spectre etc could fit.

    Yes, it's a universal holster, since this vest is primarily intended for Airsoft and real weapons, I bought this taking the risk that my gear wouldnt fit, as it turns out all of those possibilities eventuated.

    Actually. You can actually get your clips to fit better if you take a few threads out. One of Oxy's mates has an olive green version of this vest and he is able to fit 18 clips / 6 clips very firmly in there without any wobble.

    You can fit the wipeout pistol after removing a few threads but the Maverick is MUCH more fatter. Minimised NFs can fit in this also.

    I did mention in my review I removed the thin threading border the individual pouches, thus creating one large pouch allowing 2x 18dart Mags (see above...)

    Can you make pouches just for nerf mags out of cordura?

    I'd throw down some cash for that!! Molle compatible please, especially for 18 round mags (both types. If you'd consider this pm me or someing I have a couple design ideas

    Is it on the left side of the vest or the right? the ebay pic shows the left while your pics show it on the right.

    Both panels are removable, it can be attached to either side.

    It's very hard to find a holster for a Mav. People sell custom ones on eBay for cosplayers.

    The holster I got earlier this year wasn't ideal but with a few adjustments, it works fine.
