Well for future reference, it is the real deal LivoniAirsoft. The vest is heavier then the cheap Knock offs vest look-a-likes, like my Black "Tac Force" Vest I have (pictured above). It's a BlackHawk Omega Tactical Vest (in OD). Retails for $134.95 on BlackHawk's Site. So, think of the pricetag before purchasing .

I'm liking the m203 holder. It's good to see that molle put to use ;D
Thanks, yea don't want to let that molle go to waste . You should really look into one since you want to fill yours up. But that would mean buying M203 shells and maybe a launcher too. So a big, but I think a worthy investment.
is the 3rd M203 pouch empty? anyways, the OD vest is really cool, i think its way better than the Black one,
Yes, that 3rd Pouch is empty, but not for long. I am waiting on 2 more shells coming. And I like my Black vest better, only because it can hold one of my manny GBBs and also it is lighter. The real stuff is heavy (talking about my OD Blackhwak Vest). They are not for the "lighter" guys .
really? do you have any numbers by any chance? i thought that since they spent all that time making the vests high quality, that they would use light-er weight materials, oh well, you learn something new everyday......

I can't find a site that says or shows the weight of the Tact Force one, but it's because the mesh is really thing and light on it, while the BlackHawk (as stated on the link above for it), it has very heavy mesh material. It's more for heavy duty stuff, like real fighting abuse would do to it, instead of our maybe once a week Airsofting.

Meh, its' not that bad. I use the Omega as well.
Just for clarification, those are not MOLLE attachment points on the back of the vest, they're BTS . That's Blackhawks fancy attachment system that next to no one uses. But yeah, they can be used for MOLLE. I do anyway.
If you think the BHI vest is heavy as is, try it with a buttpack, holster, pistol mag pouch, and a 102 ounce CamelBak in that thing. Along with all your mags, batteries, and an extra gun on the inside!
I tell you what though, no one ever said airsoft would be easy, and it sure is a great workout.
"....consider that Marine Scout/Snipers are required to do the same thing at almost twice the distance (hitting a target at over a quarter mile away), with only one shot and no chance to make adjustments. All this on a mission that may last for days, in any weather, against an enemy trying to kill y
Wait til you start buying replica body armor and plate carriers and hanging a half-dozen M4 mags and a few M203 shells off your vest, drop-leg holster and dump-pouch from your belt, and metalling out your entire AEG. The weight adds up quickly.

Well I already have 6 M4A1 Magazines, I have 2 m203 Shells, I have a Drop Leg Holder (for Mp5 Mags and Pistol Mags) on my Black Duty Belt (With 2 Pistol magazines on that) and I have a Mac11 holstered onto the other side of my Black Duty Belt.
I had an M4A1 that had a metal body on it, wasn't that much of a difference to me in weight.
So I think I get the drift of what you are talking about.
Though I when I used my Omega, after about the 3rd game I had to start tearing off stuff because I was so hot.
I don't think that will happen with my Tact Force because it's more light and I think a lot more breatheable in.
Well, I know the Tac Force vest isnt the best quality, But i do have to say that it holds up very well. I carry my camel bak in it, two hicaps, one 8.4 batt, 3 pistol mags,kwa glock 18c, walkie talkie, c02's, rubber knifes, smokes, lighters and a bunch of other small stuff. I don't go easy on it either. I really expected it to rip in half. It is heavy, but it's well balanced when i wear it, and I don't feel the weigh. Some other vests get pulled forward or backwards depending on where the weight is. But anyways, nice gear.... I love it, You have to gear up, and take a few pics of you and our guns, We always see parts here and there, can we get a few big pics? You look half military, half swat, So... 2 pics should cover it? Funny story really quick, the loops to hold onto the vests, where your neck goes.... Got caught on a tree when i bent over and walked. And i actually ended up hangin my self. I coulnd't get off. My feet were on the ground, but i couldnt free myself.. I was running and leaning in directions trying to free myself...I have nothing else to say!! After about 50 seconds, i free'd myself, casually looked around to make sure no one saw that. I have nothing else to say!

I will get those pictures up for you.
Basically everything Black is for a SWAT role or CQB Environment.
Anything OD is for Woodland Environment or any Outdoor Play.
