i bought this vest custom made because i was tired of running out of air, paint, etc. this vest does the trick!mine is velcro'd in the front so i can switch out between air bottles, paint, grenades,or smokes.dont let spec ops fool you about how big of an air tank you can fit, as i fit a spec ops 114ci tank into the pouch!!!!the vest is highly adjustable to fit snugly.it is a ***** the first time you try to adjust everything,though.after that, you're golden!!!i tend to lurch around like a human tank(or a mobile proshop,haha)with a ton of gear on me,but it is amazingly comfortable as the webbing spreads the weight out EVENLY!!!!!!order on size smaller so you can adjust for a snug fit, as you can become a one man ammo dump.now, on your feet soldier!!!!

Cons: Impossible to put a pod back in the stretch holder
This was the first tact vest I ever bought and still use it today. Holds eight pods, plenty of pockets in the front, love the pull down I.D. flap for when I go to certain fields that require some sort of tag, all pod holder are in the back, and it is a very comfortable vest when you adjust it right. I really don't like how on the two stretch pod holders how you can take out a pod to re-load, but it's impossible to put back in, usually I just leave them set and pick them up after the game is over. other than that it's a great vest, wish spec ops made it in camo though.

Cons: None so far
I recently got this vest on ebay for $20. I wasn't too thrilled about the OD color but when I saw the vest and the capability that it has I could care less about the color. You can carry a ton (8) of pods comfortably and there's plenty pouches for carrying other needed items. Great vest by SpecOps.

I have an original Broadsword vest, before Tippmann partnered with Spec Ops. It's a great vest, though a little much jsut for rec games. During big scenario games though it was great, could haul around lots of paint without having to go back and refill pods.

If you're really interested in getting one I'd skip the new vests and go to Thevestguy.com He's the original maker of the Specops vest and they're solid choices.

Special Ops Paintball Broadsword Vest I purchased several Special Ops vests back when they were creating quality products and they never failed to perform. I will never go to a scenario without one of the vests ever.
