    It's horrible. Horrible horrible horrible. Everything about it is bad. Stay away from everything Matrix brand entirely. And really, 99% of the gear on Evike is trash. I'm not on a computer right now, so digging up links is hard, but if you can wait until later in the weekend I can put up a couple of decent vests around tue same price range.

    the molle webbing on matrix vests/chest rigs isn't always evenly spaced - sometimes it's unusable or makes it difficult to place pouches and stuff where you want to.

    Did you read all the reviews, mate? Not all of them were @$$ kissing. Some of them complained about the quality of the material and BB penetration. That right there should be a red flag. Look for yourself and real all the reviews.

    Sorry, I dropped the ball on this thread.

    First, the reason that the reviews on Evike are mostly positive is because Evike has control over the content of their site and also want to sell the vest. It's called a conflict of interests, and it's the reason why you should never trust reviews on retailer websites.

    Significantly better vests for around $80:

    These are just the first few options from one of my go-to sites. There are plenty of others.
