I bought the 2016 version and really liked its minimalist design. It's light weight which makes it really easy to pack and bring overseas. I don't carry much so the D rings at the shoulder straps and at the skirting of the BCD serves me well enough. The side pockets are small but I've inverted it to become a ditch-able weight pouch (just unbuckle the pockets and the weights will drop out).
I'm actually looking to sell my set to get another that's one size smaller as it is slightly too big for me, let me know if you're interested =)
