This vest looks like a copy of the South African M83 vest. I have 3 of the original SA vests and love them but mine did need so slight modifications to work better for me. Fast tex buckles on the two big pouches and a drain hole where needed. Also a camelback bag seems to fit perfict in the main compartment in the back. Then all you have to do is fit some small food items in the bottom pouch.
I belive that the reason they say paintball or air soft in the add is that there rig isn't up to the task for real world use. If you want a cheap nock off I belive that there are many companies in the US that carry this same product.Iron Wolf,Sportsmans Guide and Savvysurvivor did carry them. If you get the vest let me know how it works out for you and what mods if any you had to do to tweak it just right.
