I buy a lot of gear, but I'm not really an expert on all the different makes, models, variations, etc.

Recently SO Tech had a booth set up on Fort Irwin selling gear. I bought a chest rig that I really like. At first glance it looks like a coyote(ish) Hellcat, with no front split opening, six internal pouches, covered in webbing, etc.

However, on closer comparison to my buddy's Hellcat I noticed that his has six individual mag pockets, and mine has six double mag pockets. The four in the middle are exactly sized to hold two 30 round M16 mags, the outer two are a little larger. They still nicely hold two mags, but are a little larger, maybe to accomodate a smoke grenade or something similar.

I looked on the makers website, and they list the Hellcat as accomodating six magazines. Mine definitely holds 12, which I actually like alot, but what vest is it?

Gear queers, what do I have?

Unfortunately I'm in Arizona for the weekend and the vest is at NTC, so I can't post pics.

Thanks, I searched "SOTech Tomcat", and you're right, that is exactly what I have.

I also discovered that I got a really good deal.
