It's very light and handy. It often bring it along on exercises as an extra (and smaller) rig, so I can have a decent fighting load on me without being fully kitted out in a full-blown combat vest. I have also used it as my only rig, and it works just fine for that too.
The 12 rows of PALS is just enough for a light fighting load.
I carry 4-6 NATO magazines, a decent size IFAK, a general purpose pouch, and the rig sits just fine without any sagging at all.
The straps can be a bit fiddly to get on without twisting on your back, at least until you get used to it. It's no big deal. I find it better to fiddle for a moment with a simple webbing strap, than having great, big silly padded straps.
I own the bigger 2-piece Särma Chest Rig also, and I prefer this ULW version because there is no wasted space on the front (where the 2-piece rig has the buckles.)
This is a great piece of kit for the money.
