Looking for a good RRV vest

I really like the RRV vests, because they seem to be a hybrid of load bearing, and plate carrier. However, I am finding it hard to find them. Or, on the occasions I find them, they are all seemingly different shades of the same colour. I am looking at this one: http://www.airsoftmegastore.com/6726...ote-Brown.aspx because of the integrated mag pouches, but it sure as hell doesn't look CB to me.
Then there is this http://airsoftdepot.ca/catalog/produ...oducts_id=1895 but unfortunately it is tan :/
Any help would be great.

If you dont mind ordering from HK, these guys ship fast, and are very quick to reply to any inquiry.

Flyye gear is probably the most high end reproduction gear available, equally on par with Eagle's Civi stuff.

Hey, thanks. Those look pretty good. It is mostly shipping that kills me :/

It can be painful to pay $20 +, but the Flyye stuff will last you a long time..

I've been running Flyye RRV with back plate for 2 years playing almost weekly year round and there has been minimal wear and tear on it.

Get a real Eagle one. It'll cost you about $100 more than the Pantac/Flyee versions, but there's no going wrong with real gear. And having used the Pantac one for over a year, I find the shoulder straps/pads more comfortable on the Eagle; Pantac also used some non-standard buckles and the rear plate carrier isn't copied quite right.

I was looking at the FLYYE, Pantac and Eagle one and finally got a deal on an Eagle one. I'm not dissapointed at all with my purchase as I know this vest will last me for years and years.

I had a pantac (or phantom?...I think it was a "newer" pantac) RRV...it was ok. Stitching was even, sliders/straps were ok. Nothing ever wore out, broke or tore on it.

I now use a Blackhawk something-something-something-something (they have a goofy name for it...but it's an RRV). I can't say specifically why, but it's nicer/tougher and just sort of feels like it fits better. Dunno.

If I had to buy one now...I'd buy a real Eagle or Blackhawk. Used ones can be had cheap...and the used real ones are usually so tough they're basically just broken in

OPtactical is great...shipping is a bit steep though, but they're great to deal with.

If you plan on going for a real deal Eagle RRV, there is often a bunch of deals on ebay for them. You can get them at a lower price there and after a quick search of Rhodesian Recon Vest a couple came up!

I own a Eage Industries RRV in CB and a LBT RRV in OD. I like both.

For the small extra cost of buying real gear, you get faster shipping and MUCH better quality. Not to mention compatibility.
