    Absolutely a superb find and a good maker , mines the common maker and has a common modification (ties removed to eliminate being caught when in use.
    The hardest and extremely expensive is to populate the pockets, I have only these, and idiot me only discovered the thread in one of the pockets fairly recently!

    nice example rene .And wow found the thread still in there that's great .good find .I bet it's expensive there is just so many pockets to fill . When I first got the vest I read all the pockets and thought how did all that gear fit in there ... lol I'd love to have the kit for my vest . But unfortunately that will have to wait . Thanks for posting this example mate
