Matrix “SDEU High Speed Tactical Vest” Review
Written by Booligan
A tactical vest is often one of the first pieces of equipment that new players purchase, often immediately following their first gun purchase. It offers them a place to put magazines, holsters, hydration kits, pouches, as well as offering a bit of protection from those high FPS BB hits that may scare away new players. I have owned several different styles and configurations of vests, from $30 cross draw rigs to a $300+ Eagle Industries rig, and I’m always looking for new styles to try out. I came across the “Matrix Tactical Systems SDEU High Speed Tactical Vest” at Evike.com, and was immediately attracted to its unique design, and plethora of MOLLE real estate. The price was quite attractive as well, coming in at $75. I decided to jump into this rig, and Evike was nice enough to provide it, so I could give it a review for you readers!
As mentioned previously, I found the Matrix Tactical Systems SDEU High Speed Tactical Vest at Evike.com, priced at $75. The vest was quickly shipped out, and arrived two days later, via UPS ground shipping. It came in a very nondescript cardboard box with no additional packaging. Damaging a vest in shipping is very difficult to do, so additional packaging/protection wasn’t really necessary. Evike.com has two vest designs that are labeled as “SDEU” style, one with integrated magazine pouches and no MOLLE, and this one, which has no integrated pouches, and with a ton of MOLLE space. This vest is available HERE, and is available in tan, OD, and black.
When the Matrix Tactical Systems SDEU High Speed Tactical Vest arrived, I was pleased to be greeted with the smell of fresh nylon wafting out of the box. I took the individual pieces out of the box (5 in all) and laid them out on the table to get a good view of the rig. It was a bit smaller than I expected, but a test fit assured me that I would be able to use it. Having reviewed items for as long as I have, you start to look at items with a VERY critical eye, and I immediately started looking for negative aspects about the vest. I found a few strings that were hanging a little long, and a few “Irish Pennants” that needed to be cleaned up with a lighter, but overall, my initial opinion of the build quality was positive.
