Great quality. I hate vests because they can get heavy and hot with all the extra fabric. This system is lighter weight and allows you to remain cooler when the temps are up. The modularity of the system is one of my favorite things. Run this system how you like.
Recently purchased the featherweight bird system and although not yet taken to the field, I am pleased to share that there were several reason for the decision to go with Marsupial Gear. First, made in the United States of America was a big one. Secondly, the ability to configure where my shell pouches and water bottles goes affords me true customization for comfort, accessibility and performance. And finally, the quality. As a former Filson strap vest customer (the original with blaze orange accents), the quality and craftsmanship that exudes from the Marsupial Gear brand is a breathe of fresh air,especially, when you consider all of the other options available. Keep innovating Marsupial Gear!!!
