Do you use one for AR? That was originally going to be mine but I thought it would be slower to put on and take off at TAs. It seemed perfect for single sport paddling races though.
I added some fastex buckles to one side for easier on-off.
yes I have the black version and use it for racing. It's lighter which is important when you have to carry it all over VA and KY. I havent found the over-the-head install to be any slower.
I may need to rethink. I liked everything else about it.
