5You'll forget you're wearing it.

What can I say about this plate carrier? Only good things, really!

I've owned many a chestrig, armour carrier and plate carrier... Eagle Rhodesian Recon Vest, Eagle CIRAS, S.O.Tech Callahan, SPEAR ELCS... None of which were as comfortable as the TacTec.

Once adjusted to your size, it is easy to put on over your head, and because the front and back are connected at the waist by elasticated material, it doesn't give you the dreaded girdle effect that many of the very rigid plate carriers can give you.

The way it sits over the shoulders and both the front and rear sit on your chest and back is incredibly comfortable, and you'll honestly forget you are wearing it, even if you've covered it in pouches and filled them with magazines and other supplies. I saw alot of other players discarding their gear during the lunch break, but I just opted to leave mine on.

The range of motion is also great. I never felt restricted once when running around, leaning around corners and even crawling through the forest on my gut!

If you're a player who enjoys a bit of a personal touch to your gear, you'll be happy to know that the entire top half of the front and rear of the tactec is soft velcro, so you can cover it up with pouches. Only drawback to this, is that if you go prone, expect to have to pull some of the local flora off.

It's also releasable, which is of little importance to us airsofters, but in the world of real firearms, I can imagine this would be a pretty useful feature.
