its made by Condor Outdoors in China, based on the UK Arktis 82 pattern chest rig, they are OK in construction, here;s my 6 color desert pattern with green overspray and modified shoulder. you can find a better deal on Ebay or in stores IMO. the local surplus store has a bunch of them in green for $25. it'll fit 7 100rd 32 degree pods, but its mighty uncomfortable on the back strap for me....so i modified it to havw a 2" wide webbing strap across the back. the other thing is, the thing is tricky getting it off or on with it loaded.

probably wouldnt be the comfiest thing but it'd get the job done

i dont know what size, i tried with the 20, 12, 14, 9 oz tanks..none of theim fits comfortably. what might work is an ALICE radio pouch that's the size for a 20oz, the condor has a spot on the backstrap to mount a canteen or a radio pouch ,that might be the best place. or you can run air-on-gun

with a fully loaded chest rig, if you wear it high (right under the armpits) itd be easier to go prone...but if worn low (on waist or below chest) itd be more likely to crush the pods.

i hate mine. i'll be blunt, it is not good for my game play. i use 10 rd tubes and a pump gun, i have a custom chest rig coming in from my friend, which is dedicated to paintball; and the quality of the buckles is such that if i pull too hard, they'll undo themselves. with 100rd pods, it has a tendency to bounce all over the place worse than my alice belt kit. still, its a novelty item, designed for airsofting, not paintball or combat.... pretty sure the Arktis is better built than this...i could be wrong. the Arktis was made in 1982, so thats so long ago.... 27 years approx. (hence the title of it being 82 pattern chest rig before Condor copied it for commercial use). but it may be better for you, i am a big guy, and things dont always work for my size lol.
