Check out the pictures. I modified the vest. changing clasps, adding rear straps and a velcro "stabilizer" in the back that sandwiches the four pieces together. This eliminated the quick release, which I have and can be put back on if you wish. it is included with the sale of the vest.
Basically, when I bought the vest I tried to make it in the image of my old PRO vest. It's been a few years so I don't remember if I changed all the velcro, but I definitely changed all that need to be changed. I have only used the vest a dozen or so times since. I use my Klassen 99.9% of the time.
Of course, this vest is old and I'm sure it has seen a lot of use by it previous owner(s).
