I just got my scout vest a couple days ago in OD together with the integrated sling system in OD as well. A little more of my paintball background puts me playing for about 9 years, 6 of which have been in scenario paintball. I've also own/ed a Flurry [non-emissary] Vest, RAP4 paintball vest and now this vest.
Upon initially inspecting and then trying on the vest, I was impressed with the craftsmanship, functionability and the overall form or look of the vest. The battle-function will be tested during my next scenario at the Blanding MOUT site this month. Comparing the 'scout to my prior Flurry, I would have to admit that I still have to get used to the scout. The Flurry was more snug and perhaps easier to fasten and adjust once on my body. Compared to the flurry, the scout needs what seems to be more extensive adjusting with the interior belt then the side buckles. The flury vest had simply elastic and velcro side fasteners. Additionally, the scout doesn't come with the padding that the flurry comes with. This padding not only acts as insulation, but also as an anti-welt barrier and, I would have to say, 'paintball armor' as you will get a lot of bounces off the padded areas. The new flurry has actual removeable padding, which is nice if you play in warmer climates. Conversely, the scout has no padding but is built mostly of mesh which suits my me living in Florida. Just to chime in the RAP4 vest, I would have to say it is a great price-concious vest. The ergonomics could be better, and I believe I am again speaking in reference to the prior version to the current RAP4 vest. Specifically, my RAP4 vest only allows a paintball tank on the back portion and places pods on the front of the vest. A hydration pouch is a feature of all of the vests I am describing with exception of my Flurry, because, again, it was the older, non-emissary which does not include this feature.
I'll hope to chime in with a better field-test description of the Spec Ops Scout vest after the scenario.
Here are some pics:

2. Don't have a Recon
3. The Internal Harness is Elastic so it can stretch VERY small.
