Did you adjust the shoulder straps and waist straps? If not, look at the back panel at the bottom, under it you will find the strap adjustments.

I had to do the same, it fits perfectly. Holy freakin' velcro tho...for the price you pay, it's really not all that bad at all.

I picked one up today, its bloody sweet. No complaints here, but now i'll have to get a radio good enough to deserve such a big, and leet pouch.

Getting the thing adjusted right, took me forever, you'll find that you will be tweeking the adjustments for awhile, but hey, that's half the fun.

I will be a great thing to sum all the features discovered in this review by you all guys, in a small text, I mean for example what are the best shops for this vest? (I have some good links) what are the suggestion for choosing our size?...
and so on...contact me if you want.
I will soon buy one of these vest but I'm still pending between which shop I will order the stuff...

Bye bye

To add to the sizing talk, I'm just over 6' and ~175lbs. I wear 36" pants. I have a desk job and my middle is soft, but flat when standing. I got the medium and after adjusting to my size, there is PLENTY of room left to make it bigger.

Question: I have the maritime version, which has the flaps on the sides. As I see it, these flaps need to be pulled up to free the velcro which allows one to put on/take off the vest. How do you guys attach your utility pouches? The wide pouch is too wide to fit entirely on the flap; same thing is true for the narrow pouch & radio pouch together.

Put another way: The flaps are each 4 segments wide. The utility pouch is 6 segments wide. The small util pouch + radio pouch is 5 segments together.

How do I attach these so that the pouches do not "cross" over the flap? (So I can still pull up the flap to put on/take off the CIRAS?) Maybe I'm just missing something.

Open and close it on the side that you put the medical pouch on. You only really need to open and close on one side.

I guess that's true. After a quick tryout, the internal cummerbund's a pain to manage with only one side open, and the radio pouch+medical still of course won't fit together on the same panel, but it's better than any alternative I can come up with. Thanks.

Are you refering to the Phantom CIRAS? If so.

They come in small and medium only, as far as I know. However, the medium will fit guys that wear XL BDU shirts, not quite sure how small the medium will go though, and I'm not hitting the stairmaster hard enough to find out either.

I removed the cummberbund, and it still doesn't move, that could be an option for you as well.

Yup, I put my plastic armour plates in them. They fit and are less of a bitch to get in. Since the original foam ones require a bit of jimmying.

One thing though, How does the cable release system work? I watched how it was strung through, yanked on the cable release and nothing happens, it just gets jammed. Took it all apart to see how it was wired through, then put it all together, and still nothing happens.
