Our sponsor ShooterCBGear sent us the Emerson AVS (Adaptive Vest System) for review. As it is a modular platform with multiple configurations I decided to upload a video with the unboxing and configuration then post the review on the next days. That way I can delve into details without making an excessively long and overwhelming post. Video is on spanish but I’ve written an English transcription (no automatic gibberish).
Key points on the video:
-It’s the Emerson Adaptive Vest, a CRYE Precision’s AVS repro, manufactured with original MultiCam fabric and webbing..
-It’s the heavy version, which includes: platebags, harness, shoulder covers, doffing cable and single-strap cummerbund.
–It all comes inside a laundry-style fabric bag, great for transporting the Emerson Adaptive Vest to airsoft games..
-Both harness and platebags are medium size, no other sizes available for now.
It’s a incredibly modular platform (even when Emerson lacks repros of multiple CRYE Precision products):
–Platebags can be worn with our withour harness (unlike the CPC). We could wear the platebags without the harness for a light and low-pro option. Put a chest rig over it and attach it to the front panel velcro. Attach a chest rig to harness shoulder mounting points (additional hardware might be required depending on the chest rig) for increased comfortableness, better weigh distribution and optional platebags.
-Comes with a MOLLE detachable front flap, Emerson also sells the 5’56 mag pouch flap separately.
-Heavy version includes the single-strap cummerbund while light comes with the 3 row airlite cummerbund, which is also sold separately.
-Harness features chest rig and backpack mounting points.
-Optional MBTIR radio pouches sold separately.
Emerson AVS has a reasonable price, you can find it on ShooterCBGear.com for 105$ in MultiCam, way under TMC’s 180$ AVS. Other camouflage patterns are cheaper.
And that’s all for the Emerson AVS unboxing and config. I’ll try to post the complete review ASAP.
