The 5.11 Tactical Vest has been a hit with law enforcement, military and security forces since it was first introduced. Made of 8.5 ounce, 100% cotton canvas, it is triple-stitched and bartacked throughout and features YKK Zippers and Prym snaps.
The 5.11 Tactical Vest has been designed to comfortably carry a heavy load. The shoulder design distributes the weight across the back and shoulder area to reduce fatigue. The pockets are balanced to allow even weight distribution so that you won't list, even with the heaviest loads. With a total of eighteen pockets, these tactical vests easily conceal and carry what you need, when you need it. Two easily accessible hidden compartments allow for handgun and accessory storage. The other sixteen pockets include pockets designed to carry AR magazines, a radio, maps, water bottles and any other items you might need. There's even a 360° pocket that wraps completely around the vest to accommodate large bulky items. For additional storage, the vest is compatible with the Back-Up-Belt System pouches. A convenient steel D-ring is included for clipping gear to the exterior of the vest as well as a key clip. If you plan on carrying large amounts of gear on a regular basis, you should go up one size so that the bulk of a heavy load can be more easily accommodated. Imported.
