lots of nylon for not many pouches
you could get a chest rig for no much more, lots more pouches.
suggestions depend on what you're looking for, though...

What is your budget like? I bought a Pantac 6094 PC vest which is one of the best value MOLLE vest's out there IMO. Got mine for $134 off of redwolfairsoft.com . Be prepared to pay duty though. Also you will need to buy all of the pouches and what not since it is MOLLE and comes bare bones which is nice because you can customize it as you please. Since I don't know your budget this is all just my advice. Make sure you vest is made with 1000D Cordura and it will last a lifetime of use. The Pantac vest I speak of is the best option without buying the real deal IMO.

Are those suppose to be PALS webbings or they are just for decoration and "MOLLE looking"?
PALS webbings with only one line of stitching? That won't last more than few hours. Probably even before the game, when you try to put the pouches on.

If your on a budget buy Condor. It's cheaper than Pantac, better made, and cheaper.

honestly in my opinion, you might as well get a plate carrier with proper MOLLE real estate instead

Cue the apprentice theme music:
Molle molle molle molle..... MOLLE!

I'm not personally a fan of fixed rigs, I would rather have the adaptability of a molle rig.

My recommendation:
Condor MCR4 OPS chest rig add pouches as desired.
OR
Condor MCR6 Ops chest rig. If you use stanag mags this is also a decent option.

Both of these options are high speed light weight and will help keep you cool. You may also want to look into an RRV type rig which is basically the same thing with a flip-up chest panel. Paired with a backpack or a simple hydration carrier you can carry all you need and access it quickly or drop the weight at a moment's notice. A large vest or plate carrier weighs more and doesn't breath very well.

Of course more expensive higher quality options exist but these options are in keeping with the vest you linked.

P.S TACO's are amazing!!! (HSGI taco pouch)

Better than Pantac.....don't quite agree with that but everyone has their own opinions. It is cheaper but I wouldn't say it's better made. Also depending on your size Condor fits REALLY big. At least the PC's do.

Everyone is definitely entitled to their opinion, but I've owned a fair number of both. Condor gets their material direct from Crye, and oddly enough is cheaper than Pantac by a margin. Pantac is replica of real steel gear, and is very well made for replica. Condor does fit large, but only on very small frames. Two of our players are smaller gentleman, I'd say in the 5' 5", 140 lb range; and they both wear Condor. We did have to get a little creative to get them to fit; but they do. Then again, our big Croatian friend wears the operator rig, and it fits well. He's about 6', and probably a good 250 lb.. The defender is large, but the operator can be shrunk down a bit more.

That's why we need MOLLE or PALS...
But it need to be good MOLLE/PALS...
