I consider myself to be average size. 5'8" 150 lbs. Don't get me wrong I love the vest (now) and for the most part it is very high quality. But it was HUGE even in S/M. There are a lot of people my size and kids that play paintball, I don't know why these manufacturers produce products that are for GROSSLY over-weight people. Sure these walking heart attacks also play... but WHERE ARE THE VESTS FOR THE ATHLETIC GUY? Thankfully I was able to completely customize this vest by adding snaps to the sides and cutting out the useless pull straps that connect the front and back sides of the vest. Now it fits perfect and looks tailor made. I even think I'm gonna tell Valken to adapt my design and add snaps to the sides so that NORMAL sized people can have something that FITS. So if you tie into the American stereotype ("heavy set" or "husky") Then you will like this vest out of the bag. If your a normal sized person... prepare to customize it to fit. But once it does you will love it.
