Works great and as intended

Don’t want to understate it, but it does what it’s intended to do and doesn’t do to much. Obviously it’s armor and typically when you add armor your adding bulk but with this design there was almost no adjustment needed to the straps or cummerbund. Haven’t experienced any pinch points and folding of the armor.having the molle on the wings makes it easy to transfer what was on wings in the same location. Only knock would be the weight, but to be expected when adding any armor.

Needs more wider coverage

Awesome concept imo, it’s comfortable, I made it work with a non Shaw PC that didn’t have padding, it just had loop on the inside. However the armor barely extends into the sides, so the soft armor there is hardly functional unless you’re a paper thin person.
