Mini-Review: Nerf Elite Tactical Vest - Refined, Yet Lacking...

(Link) Hey guys! If you remember WAY back to August 2012, you would remember my review on the N-Strike Tactical Vest, one product that was high on my shopping priority list. Now, I have since gotten my hands on the Elite version of the vest. Just in-case you haven't read the original, here it is: A few pics to follow, highlighting the key features of the new, fancy vest. (Sorry in advance for the poor quality, I was in a rush.) :P

Basically the same vest, but with a few key differences. 
Clip and Dart Straps are now BLUE, to emphasize Elite colours.

I LIKE blue. :P

Elite badge is bigger than the original N-Strike badge. 

Done away with the funky holster, the replacement is a belt clip, and a strap located beneath it. The clip is designed to hook up the priming pull on the Firestrike for example, and the strap is to secure it in place, firmly.
Easy to tuck a Jolt into still, but a Triad JUST fits in there. :P
Also a major change is the replacement of zips with Velcro straps. These fit and hold very well, to my surprise. 
Nerf removed the sword holster from the rear. A sure sign that it wasn't used much on the original, due to the scarcity of N-Force here in Australia.
What's this? FACE OFF TIME!!!

(Where did YOU come from? :P)

N-Strike Clear Clips VS Elite Clips

So, would I recommend it? It's a tough ask, but if you missed out on the original, I'd still recommend the Elite version. Looks and feels comfortable, but has a few minor niggles, such as removing the holster. Overall, still a good buy for $30, on sale this week at Target.

Now, I'm very sorry for the long wait for the next video review, I should have the Strongarm review uploaded by the end of this week. Someone is celebrating his 20th B'day this week :P And also, Alex is promising new content soon. TTFN!
