Good product, limited utility...
The quality of this FR duck vest is spot on. It's just while I have this and an FR jacket with sleeves, I find myself wearing the jacket way more often. Also, I wish it had more pockets. Having sleeves offers significantly better protection, so while this vest is an excellent product, its use is limited. Otherwise, I'd recommend it.
