    Haven’t been shot at, but it fits well. The drag handle could be better. I prefer thicker handles (with like a tube inside a rubber sleeve) for an better grip. I’d also prefer a smarter way to retract the drag handle, maybe a dedicated pouch for the excess and a quick retrieve strap. Additionally the side mag pouches are a bit difficult to access in my experience. but maybe they just need to be worn in/loosened up. But other than that it’s pretty ideal.

    I bought the largest size and it’s just a tad small but I love the feel and system is well designed.
