Custom Spec Ops Vest Custom Recon review!!!

Ok guys, I have seen a few other review around here and there....But you know me, I dont like to leave out the details at all.

So Im about to take up a few min of your time showin off the greatest thing since sliced bread!!.

Posted Image

This is a custom made By COPS911, Special Ops Recon Vest.

Its made of all mesh, in the black color.

It is the medium size, yet I had it made to my measurements. This thing fits like a glove.

Normally they dont come with an air pouch or name tages, but you can clearly see I have added both.

My tank is a Pure energy 88/4500 and it fits just fine.
I asked for my pods to be vertical to make it easier to pull them out for me. Although, you can have them horizontal and the tank in the middle if you like.

On the front, I mixed it up a bit too.

I added the holster that is made for the new tag-8 Pistol (big hint to the honey.....my vest is lonely, needs a new pistol)

I also had a custom zipper pocket and ID pouch added over the standard Dual F-Bomb pouches. As well as a name plate for the front.

If your short of F-Bombs, the pouches can be very usefull for other Items as well.

It comes standard with a hydration slot in the back panel. I have a 100oz camelback bladder in mine. It fits just fine. I like how the whole entire vest base is mesh. Very breathable, and lite. Very quiet and secure. It doesnt move about much at all on your body. I had mine set up just like I wanted. All my tools, and pods, etc, are right at my fingertips. The weight balance of having a vest like this is incredible. You can haul the whole kitchen and not feel the weight.

Normal Price for this vest in stock form is $79.

I had all those features added and customized for $130.

I love this thing.

The pouches are all sewed in place. Nothing is comeing off, Save the Name Plates. Those are velcro, so as to easily remove them if I choose later to sell this vest or pass it on. ( you wouldnt want some Lame A noob out there tarnishing your good name)

It also has two connection points for a tactical harness on the front. I can hang my entire loaded A-5 off one and it still feels the weight centered and secure.

Also did you notice how close to your mouth the radio pouch is. For those of you who dont have a headset, you can still easily communicate with your team mates.

During those colder months, when you put on a few *coughpoundscough* layers. The vest will grow with you too. On the sides. are two per side adjustment tabs, with plenty of length to the web belts for those BIGGER Guys/Gals.

Your Airtank pouch(optional) is large enough for the biggest tanks. Its secured not only with criscross velcro straps, but also with two alice clips that can be sinched down.

I hope this is what you guys need to help make up your mind about buying one.

If anyone has any further questions just post up.

Yeah, I got a question. How much do you want for it? Considering it's custom to YOUR needs and not mine, and that it has been in use for a few days...I'll give you...$25. :P That's pretty sweet indeed. Now you've made me want to make my own custom vest. :unsure: Is this open to random people, or is it just for you because you have "connections"? Sweet vest, thanks a lot, you made me jealous, good luck getting that Tac-8 pistol.

As far as I know, MOATI knows no distinction between those out there and those in here.....

try a few other colors look at some deset camo BDUs and go from there, oh and a camo gun will not do very well in the desert with a black vest.

Wolf can NOT be seen, niether can his gun. It shouldnt blend in that well, but it does, he could be 2 feet away and not get caught (in fact, he's done that before). Hes on my team and I've gone entire 4-6 hour games without seeing him once. Whatever camo he has on his A-5 works, thats all I can say.

Oh, and great vest Wolf. I like the idea of a built in water pouch, I need to get cubholders installed on my gatlin too :huh:

any vest will be a vast improvment to your game, however like other equipment it takes time to get to know and rely on it. I have played once with it, and ran about the house with it many a times. Kinda odd for a 30 year old to do, but my kids get a kick out of it.

I find it very different than the stock version, as I was able to recently compare the 05 stock version to my custom made one, vs a 06 stock version.

I cant say much for the 06 as it was an XXL and of coarse way way to big, But I did find the new features attractive to the eye and the performance factor of it.

I wouldnt buy one in the stock form anyday. I knew exactly how I wanted my gear to be set up on the field. When I got the vest, it was as if I had had it for years. I fealt 100% natural in it, my gear was right at my finger tips, and the weight was fairly evenly distributed. As you can see in the pics I have a holster for the new TAG8 pistol, but yet dont at this time own one. Once I do the vest weight will be exactly as I want.

I agree, I bought the stock version of the Recon vest. I am going to purchase the customized version. Thanks for the post, answered many of my questions. Thanks Wolftalon.
