Too fucking much

For 30$ more can get a REAL Spartan II on OPS Tactical. But they are very bulky units, much more than an IBA or any other vest.

Even Marines hate that vest and that's why the Marines are yet again looking for a new vest (there's the MCAV and Scalable armor currently in use in Afghanistan because they are much more streamlined and gives the troop better mobility without giving away too much protection)

I'll say it again, anyone who wants to use current USMC kit but doesn't want the bulkyness (because let's face it, very few people are in the physical shape that the Marines are) and weight, just buy an Eagle Ind. CMS-PC and add CIRAS shoulder padding and voila! You have an MCAV

Actually, as of early January, the MTV carrier is officially being replaced (plans are to keep the armor and replace the carrier; possibly the TAG Enhanced MTV).

As mentioned, the Eagle SPC is being used in Afghanistan right now by MEU and MTT.

Apparently most Marines aren't using their MTVs.

What ever, I like the vest, and don't find it that bad to wear. It should be noted that the build quality is outstanding. Pantac really out did themselves. It is also true that if it were not for the holiday season I probably would not have spent the money.

And Vince:
1. Because the armor in the vest is not real (soft), and the plates are fake, weight is not a problem.

2. Without the side plates the vest feels no more bulky than my IBA.

As long as you like it, that's what is important

I was just going out of my personnal preferences. But anyways most of the time I won't even play with body armor, FLC is still my favorite piece of kit.

Theres a guy on ArniesAirsoft named Grim who has done an FR load-out, I think you should contact him and he'll tell you exactly what you need.

Green kit

OTV + side pros
FLC in CB with Eagle and SDS pouches

Decided to do without the LWH for that game, took off the OTV on second pic and put on my Goretex
