Hi. I was just wondering if anyone has inspected or purchased a european made ss1 or ss2 vest by sprint? they seem to be good value at the moment but I haven't seen one is any one using one who can give me some feedback about quality and easy of use. Any help would be greatly apreciated.

Hi Dave,

I had the same impression when I first saw the vest on the photo. Looked pretty neat to me and because I am on a small budget, I bought one from Jan. First of all it took more than 3 months before I received all parts of the vest. And whenever I received an incomplete parcel he had the wildest explanations. And even that I would have accepted if the vest were at least usable but in the end I found out that you can not close the waist section tight if you are normal size (my waist size is 33).

I asked Jan about my problems but in the end I got insulted. After calling my lawyer he took the vest back but it cost me at least 300,- Euro (paypal fee, shipping etc.).

If you are still interested in that vest, let Jan send you the vest for a test. Then you will see.

Take care and best wishes from Germany,

It is rather hard getting information about about the Progear / Sprint products as the links on the site don't work so well. Has anyone had experience using the SSV1 Vest? If you have, I am interested in comments you might have, pro's and cons compared to your experience's with other similar style vests.

Jon Has your vest arrived yet? Tom the only problem that i'm aware of is that they are not really comfortable for people with less than a 32" waist, there a bit loose! not a problem for me then! :P
