    Default Gaming Vest??

    G'day Guys,

    Has anyone tried one of these gaming vests ?

    I'm thinking about getting one, but are they more gimick than useful?

    I am going to guess you will use this 3 times and then it will start collecting dust.

    Yeah so am I!

    If it works well, it would be great for shooters, but the only reviews I can find are old, so who knows?

    Agreed...once the novelty wears off it will just end up in my basement. I do think its really cool, but just not practical.

    Never seen one before, and to be honest, the $139 would be better spent on a good mechanical gaming keyboard.

    Thinking it may be worth the $180 just to review it

    Throw in a butt kicker and it may just be a bowel shaking experience

    Guys, I bit the bullet and bought one, heres a very short review.

    1. It does add to your SA, if you get shot in the back, the left or right, you know it immediately.
    2. Make sure its a tight fit or you'll lose the effect
    3. It comes with a compressor that at first is annoyingly loud, but fades into the background after a while.


    It wouldn't be my first priority to buy, but if your like me (I love gadgets) it's a fun addition to your gaming gear

    Just an update,

    I'm finding this thing invaluable in FPS's, it really does help your SA! you'll never have that "holy crap where's that round coming from" moment again

    The compressor is noisy, but with your headphones on or your speakers turned up you won't notice it.
