    While previously a huge fan of EIUI but based on recent retail experiences with Eagle Industries and this AEROS vest’s price-point, think someone’s monies would be far better spent buying a Mayflower or Beez Systems vest. Due to EI’s delineation of material quality and completely under-whelming customer service support, I will no longer spend any more of my hard won monies on any Eagle Industries products. Thank you to SS for posting this article

    Have to disagree. My small team is working on a project and we linked up with Don G at Eagle. His customer service and support have been examplary.

    Okay, so whats the difference between the standard and the JTAC?

    I’ve been using an Aero for work for about two years now. Great vest, solid design, and for me it’s more comfortable than the Crye AVS. That being said, you have to deal with Eagle directly for add-on components and they’re often priced above the comparative Crye pricing. That being said, I’ll use mine until it dies or I don’t need it any more.

    I am happy my unit went with the Aero. We T&E’d both the Aero and AVS and found the Aero to be more comfortable and easier to use “out of the box.” Also vastly superior to anything Beez or what Mayflower has to offer, but that’s IMO.

    This is my favorite plate carrier of them all, I have the AFSOC version of this. It’s price point is based on the complexity of the carrier. Its got a lot of different materials being used including the tweave baby! What I’ve noticed is the newer, Made In USA tagged (not contract tagged) Aero vest is being made with printed webbing and not the jacquard weave like the original. Not sure why use the inferior webbing for everyone else…
