Pros & Cons

What we like about the product...

  1. Backpack design leaves your chest open 
  2. Lumbar padding makes for a comfortable fit 
  3. Made of durable Cordura fabric

What needs improvement...

  1. Kind of defeats the purpose of weight vests, which is to evenly distribute weight
  2. Not everyone will like the backpack-style straps
  3. Could use a hip strap in addition to the sternum strap 

Product Summary & Specs

The Go Ruck Plate Carrier 2.0 is a great option for people looking for a backpack-style vest.
