Armor Study, GOW-style

When I first saw the new armor from Minifig.cat posted on Flickr I definitely thought it looked interesting. Once I received it, I was surprised to see the difference in size between this armor and the older AMA variety.
The MC version has cleaner lines and more detail, but could use just a bit more bulk and deeper grooves on the front (this photo actually makes it look bulkier than it is - the front is very flat). I like the fact that MC continues to release new body-wear and this piece is useful for many Sci-fi types of applications. The back of the armor also has clips for holding items, as is typical now for the MC combat vests as well. Overall it is a very nice piece.
