Comments about Hollis Gear Hollis Rapid Emergency Deployment System (R.E.D.S.):
This Hollis R.E.D.S BC is VERY versatile, and well made. The front lower pouch is made to hold either two 6 cu ft pony bottles, or one 13 cu ft bottle. The front of the BC also has a removable pouch attached to the military molle straps. The molle straps allow you to configure your accessories in tons of different ways. The back of it is set up for single tank use. This BC is the refined modern interpretation of the horsecollar BC. It is well made for sure.
