guess i'll just leave that to all the nerf youtubers who will be making their 10 minute long speeches while wearing their tactical vests. :lol:


Don't even joke like that.

If there's one thing I hate, it's clicking on a review video hoping to get some bits of information, only to find that it's in the range of 10 minutes long. Who would sit through that?



My time is limited, so leave it to 8 year olds with youtube accounts to waste it. I hate it when they show me stuff I can figure out on my own.

Anyways, the 30.00 price tag is just about the only thing keeping me from buying it. I may be able to modify an old sweater-vest...

The thing I don't like about my bandolier is the fact that it's always sliding around. And it smells funny.

I'd like to know how big this thing is, measurement-wise. Like, is it only made to fit 10-year-old kids, or can it be adjusted for decent-sized young adults?

i'm a big guy with a gut and i can make it fit me ;-)

I'm considering getting a vest for HvZ, and this is in the running, because apparently most other tactical vests are the same price or more expensive.

I'm just not sure I'd want the magazines exposed since they'd be like zombie beacons.

I'd go for a paintball vest or a tactical vest from a military surplus store. Buy something you know will fit, will be of acceptable quality, and will still be able to serve a purpose aside from Nerf wars.

Certainly interesting to hear it was practically made for adults in comparison to any pre-conceived notion that the target audience was under a certain age. A pretty decent design and most undoubtedly well-made, short of constructing it from 1000D Cordura Nylon XD

I just picked up the bandolier myself which seems to do the job just as well with quite a bit of length on it. The only thing they really need to improve now is the method of holding magazines because they are not at all on the 'tactical' side of things if one cannot easily insert and remove them from their respective holders (an elastic band that is secured at the exact width of the clip, stretching the elastic nearly to its limit).

Pictures thanks to SG Nerf. SG Nerf also says that this vest has a holster for pistol sized Nerf blasters. I'm kinda of torn on whether this is worth it or not. $30 is kinda much, but I've seen prices for other homemade stuff like this online and it's up there with this thing. This also comes with 2 Clear Clips and 12 darts. It holds 4 clips and 12 darts.

Do you guys think this is worth it? Does it look too nerdy for the $30? Going overboard on our hobby?

What are your guys thoughts?

30 freaking dollars never gonna buy.

Domo, you make one more shitty post like that again and I'm gonna start pressing buttons.

However, if I used clip guns and the vest came in size xx-manly I would totally use one.

I think that it is not to bad. I may end up picking up one for my nerf war, but what I dont understand is how you guys love the clear clips. I honestly am debating on getting it because I dont really like the clear clips. I like how it can hold a sword though.

One reason I did not like the bandoiler is the fact that it is so loose and the clips are so very tight inside of the holders. Also it sold for a good amount so it was worth getting rid of. I personally like the flip clips.

Has anybody tested it with raider drums?

The clear mags only seem like they would be useful if you had a Clear series blaster. Otherwise, most of the mag is up inside the blaster and you can't see the dart count anyway.

Might be cool for the 18-round extended mags, though.

As opposed to the original yellow clips? Unless the clips fit differently (like how the old yellow ones sometimes fit snugger in a recon than the first orange ones), I don't see how it matter that much, aside from aesthetic reasons. I don't get the arguments either way. It's still a clip that still fires the same way as before.

You realize that would basically leave you with a frisbee sticking out of your chest, right? Something tells me that wont work too well.

Yeah I realize that. I was just wondering if the strap was tight or not as to hold the weight of a raider drum. I am guessing that it will work with the 18 rd. extended mags too but it will just block some other stuff.
