U1 Overt Carrier - Front Opening is rated 2.8 out of 5 by 4.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Swing and Miss Got this as part of an issued package. The top two pockets are too small to be used for anything. The slash pockets are huge, and whatever's in there slides around to the side. The slash pockets have a tiny internal pocket that's also useless. The back up gun pocket is much to small and has no retention feature at all (like Velcro or a strap. The Velcro shoulders don't stick down, because the loop field doesn't go high enough, so the Velcro digs into your neck. Lastly, the carrier weighs almost as much as the panels themselves. It is really thick on the sides, and it juts out at the bottom. I will say, the panels are the lightest and most flexible 3a I've worn. The carrier is the issue.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Very Thick Carrier This is my fifth vest and carrier (20 year LE Vet) and unfortunately it is the worst one out of the 5. Not because the vest itself but the U1 carrier from Safariland. In some areas the carrier is 6 layers think. (IE.. In shoulders you have the thick inner material, vest pocket to tuck vest in, then the exterior of the carrier. This results in 6 plus layers of material when you count each side of material and the vest.) Safariland dropped the ball as the pockets will not fit a phone, the material holds dirt, the lapels are very narrow and the overall vest with carrier is very heavy. Plus with all the material you become heated quickly and you can't just open this vest to vent it. If I could give it zero stars I would. When I called safariland customer service they beside told me I was out of luck. It's sad because there are many days I contemplated not wearing my vest at all after being religious for 20 years about wearing it every shift.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great! But not perfect! Have had this about 5 months. Took 4 months to order. I’ve tried a molle stule carrier and didn’t like it. This is great fittIng carrier and the zipper opening is the best idea! Never have to mess with velcro again, once you adjust the carrier, it’s a simple zipper on/off wear like a jacket. Safariland definitely dropped the ball on the pocket size....say good bye to having your phone in there, will not fit! The lower, hidden velcro pockets are ok, would rather use the space for bigger top pocket or a different pocket to hold a phone. Overall 90% happy with this.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Better comfort that in the past I am a 32 yr PO vet, working all aspects of Law Enforcement. 95% of my career, I used the carrier for under the uniform shirt. It is only in the last 12 mos, I went to an outer carrier, first the safariland side closure vest, which I did not like, then this carrier. 100% better, wear it everyday. Highly recommended
