hey /g/earheads, I'm wondering if there are any vests similar to the South African Defense Force 83 - either straight up clones, similarly cut PALS webbing patterns, or other modern backpack-integrated webbing systems - that don't suck. I might just go for an original SADF 83 at this rate but I am wondering if there are any others in that style which are well made and not just Chinese airshit-tier. I'm aware of Karrimor SF's Predator vest and that's about it.

I bought one when they first came in on Kommando Store mostly for the historical novelty, but I've used it hiking and shooting a few times. Something to keep in mind about SA during the period is there was a huge range of equipment which is it has the "one size fits all" feel when you load it with kit.

Also it's 30+ years in the past of LBE development, so you will notice it's more cumbersome than even a cheap MOLLE vest and pouches laid out for you and your kit. I like it for the history, it absolutely will carry your stuff, but also accept it won't perform like any modern system for the collector-grade-prices you'll end up paying.
