it's a pantac RAV with a MBSS, 2x 3xopen top mag holders, 2xupright utility pouches, performed very well all day, only problem was it had a habit of running higher on my neck than average. and a bit rear heavy, probably wouldn't of been with RS mags up front.

you can get a new flyye RAV (same design, just rebranded) off of landwarrior for £140 but in ranger green, got mine in OD second hand.

i decided on the RAV because from what i understand UKSF use them, and i want to try and keep as british as possible (no comments on the M16 please, mainly because anybody who see's it wouldn't be able to accurately name it anyway).

i like it because it's very easy to get off (easier than a RICAS), and it's very adjustable (i've got a 45in chest and 28-32in waist (depending on hunger) and it almost fits me like a glove).

i do not recommend them to anybody smaller than 5'5 or with a chest smaller than 35in, mainly because it was designed to fit big soldiers, and it'll need a lot of work done on it to get it to fit smaller sizes.

Nick, you have to pay an extra £140 for the pouches, or near enough if you want high quality mag pouches, and every other pouch that you can cram onto the vest :P

personal preference, the RICAS your looking at doesn't allow somebody to belly crawl without fouling their mags, i made mine so that i was capable to crawl around and had freedom of movement, i use all of my pouches (actually putting stuff in them) very rarely am i empty or out of ammo/water/food/reading material/batteries/tool kit/porn, plus i've still got plenty of molle space. so there are advantages to both.
