Won this tonight, 42 quid seemed alright compared to a lot of vests iv seen. I like the one on patrol base but it's out of stock for the foreseeable future,

For what very little I know it looks ok to me, especially with the pouches thrown in too

might want to add a dump pouch perhaps at some later date but see how you go

 

and postage is alright too - no being ripped on high postage charges

don't know what the make is but reckon you could of done a lot worse

and if new or "nearly new" then I think you done alright in my humble opinion

OH GOD. I had the exact same vest for my first molle from the exact same person and out of packaging looked really nice good quality material but once it went on and I went to adjust it, it literally fell to pieces and I paid their buy it now price which back then was £99

Blimey - hope that was a one-off faulty one you got

 

mind you had to send back a sling to Millitary1st a week ago and not been resolved just yet I think

(son & missus were returning it so let them get on with it - hence dunno what the latest is atm)

They claimed to me it was a one off but a mate got one at the same time as me and his fell apart as well. Could have just been a bad batch but they did refund me £45 to pay the cost of having it professionally repaired so I will give them that.

Would it not be a better idea to ask before you buy?

Exactly what I was about to say, check before buying.

Always better to ask before buying .. £42 is a nice cheap price for a vest, but you don't want to keep paying that should the vest fall apart or fail to meet your requirements.

Its an ACM clone of the old US FSBE II gear. Nothing to write home about but as a first carrier it should do ok. Its the same as the below vests with different pouch configuration.

Thats basically a cheap Chine vest.. £42 to me seems high for one and I wouldn't bet on it lasting too long

 

And what people have said, ask BEFORE you buy :D
