I have to agree here. The flurry vest is the best I have ever used. it's great for big guys with the extender straps.. I'm 6'7" 330 lbs etc and it fits me perfectly. It's so well balanced and distributes weight perfectly.

I threw a few pics in here to show my appreciation of this vest. Click them to view full size.

It's a great purchase.

Damn... you're big... I would probably be scared to death if I ran into you in the woods...

I am looking into this vest too. After reading this post and realizing I am in desperate need of a vest I started to look into picking one of these up. A little more expensive than I was hoping to spend but I guess you pay for quality. I really need to pick one up sometime. I kinda want a mil sim gun as well but my cocker/electra will do for now. Need a TAC 8 and A5 set up with a raider kit... then I would be happy... and quit buying paintball guns...

The guys on my team use the Flurry vest and we love them. If you are planning to get one make sure you enter TIPPINATORS in the coupon code section when you check out and you will get a 5% discount on your order.

i recently bought the flurry emmissary vest and i'll have to say that i do love it...i've used it twice now, once during the weekend long scenario and just last weekend and i really don't have anything bad to say about it other than i wish that the o2/nitro bottle pouch were more fixed than holding on velcro but all in all it's a great vest. i'd recommend this vest to anyone and my team are switching to the flurry vests.

Yea i jut bought a flurry like 2 weeks ago, and got to try it out last weekend. The only thing i could say is that the foam does hold in moisture and heat. It was only 50 some degrees out, but i pulled the padding so i could stay cool.

I was kinda worried when i got it at first becuz it was loose, but after I moved the stuff around on the back it fits fine now, its nice that you can configure the pods and tank however you want on the back. Very comfortable

How solid are the pouches... i mean just velcro? They may come off in a frenzied snatch for a pod... no?

Ben

EDIT Also the tank pouch looks a little loose.. i have a 20 oz and i certainly don't want anything falling out

Lol u guys are killing me.

I have had my flurry for about 4 months now and played probably 8 or 9 different weekends with it so far.

I carry an PMI 88/4500 tank which is huge.. and I have never had my tank pouch nor pod pouces even hint of coming loose. The velcro label is overated.. this is strong velcro that's not going anywhere..

if u don't trust it.. then buy another vest.. but Iwould not trad emy flurry vest for anything!..

Like mastersgtzeus said, the velcro label is messing with your head. It is durable velcro, it isn't coming off unless you take it off yourself. Let me ask you this: would they be able to sell as many as they do if it was a shoddy product?

I've seen them in action and they look pretty sturdy... but to answer your question, just look at this link:

But Flurry is a trustworthy company, with the Blade you take your life into your own hands (seriously before the recall) :D

The Tank holder also has a strap that holds it onto the vest if you are really worried about it falling off.
I have taken the pod holder off once, and it wasn't easy. While I was kneeling on the vest, I had to actually try to yank it off. I've had it get caught by a tree limb, and it pulled me back (6'2" 215lbs).

The only problem that I've run into is lack of pod slots. Of course, it was easily fixed by buying a $16 32* 3+2 and wearing it on my belt ;).
My job is to be an asshole. I excel at the position.

you ran out of pod slots...the flurry comes with 6 of em...how many did ya need? thats 140 round pods X six slots..thats 840 rounds plus a full hopper....WOW ;) .....about 1000 rounds....thats half a case of paint!! I thought I shot alot !!

I just bought a new Flurry vest as well....gave the wife my old one but still works great and seen tons of action through muddy swamps and damp woods...I noticed the new ones fasten around the waist a little different than the first ones that came out and optional strap to mount your bottle sidways.... same great comfort though...Good Work Flurry!!!

How well would it fit a 5'3" 115lbs player? The vest on spec-ops are too big and I haven't had any luck with Cops911 in fitting one for me. So any help from anybody on this vest would be great.

It should fit you fine. There is a guy around here that's about that size, and his fits him perfectly. You shouldn't have a problem.
