    I have two of them...one tan, one black. I like the extra pocket, better than a vest.
    I like them...I wear the tan one with my 5.11 shorts...
    Note: Buy larger than you wear!

    I have two, tan and gray, and they are great! I usually carry my wallet or a spare mag in the front right pocket, so the wind won't out me, and the weight helps to clear the weapon when needed.

    I have one and I like it a lot.

    There's a pic of me wearing mine, along with another link where they can be purchased in this thread. and this thread.

    Make sure you buy larger than the size you wear!!!

    I have two and use them a lot! They even look pretty normal when I'm in cargo shorts.

    I do like the look of those and thank you for posing in those Captain Crunch, I can see now how I can carry a bigger pistol in the future in warmer weather.
    God bless our troops!

    That's true. They are cut on the snug side. One size larger than you normally wear is the way to go.

    Very funny, Tracy!

    Actually, thanks for the compliment!

    I have three, black, tan and grey and I love 'em. Neat thing about them is my wifes friends consistently compliment me on them and ask where they can get them for their husbands.

    I normally wear an xl and the xxl I ordered a couple of years ago fits perfect. The xxls I ordered last year fit a little snug (different manufacturer). I really could have gone xxxl.

    They're really comfortable even though not 100% cotton. Almost 100% of my clothes are either 100% cotton or wool - I don't like synthetics........too hot and humid, or cold and damp where I hang out.......

    I picked one up for a cover garment when I feel like something different. I do agree you need to order one size larger than you normally wear, their sizes do run smaller than the US.
