Nice! If it's any good I might try my luck too!
Could you try to do a video review of it on YouTube maybe?

Thanks, I'm about your size and I really want a small plate carrier but people only make them for around $150-300.

That's fine, I just wanna see how it looks on you(not a pervert). I'm just about the same size, that's all.

Alright Blatey the vest came in yesterday. It's actually quite nice. There's a bunch of stray strands that didn't get cut off when the sewing was finished, but that's an easy fix. Just cut them and get a lighter and melt the area. As for the actual vest, the front and back have PALS webbing, and all the three included pouches are MOLLE ready so if you wanted, you could take them off and put on different pouches. I'm on my way out to Combat City right now, so after I get back tonight I'll let you know how well it holds up. If you tighten both straps completely, it fits great on me. I'm going to see how the mag draw is when I'm playing today. But as for fit, it's great. It also has front and back pouches for plates in case you wanted to put them in. I don't have plates, so I can't tell you how it would fit with them in. So far it seems pretty well constructed. It's nice and light, yet still has enough space for what you need. Word of advice though, the mag pouches are supposed to be double stack, and they're not. More like 1 and a half. You can't fit two, and if you have just one without the Velcro straps it's loose. So I plan to get different pouches for it, but it'll do the job today. The admin pouch has 2 seperate holding places, and a pistol mag/speed loader pouch. I'll post pictures tonight when I get back. But if you're about the same size as me, it should fit. If you're any smaller, you might have a slight problem lol

This is the front and the side of the vest. I have both straps tightened completely and it fits comfortably. It's not overly tight, but tight enough not to move around. The magazine pouches do not fit 2 mags like it says, but the admin pouch on the top can fit one, it just moves around. The mag pouches on the bottom are also kind of loose, not just the pouch but also the MOLLE straps. I highly suggest that you get a new set of magazine pouches for those two reasons. The whole vest itself is nice and light, even with 4 mags in it. I would suggest it for anybody my size and bigger. Of you're smaller, you'll have a problem cuz it doesn't go any smaller. I'm 5'7 and 130 pounds.
