The 5.11 Tactical Vest has been a hit with law enforcement, military and security forces since it was first introduced. With a total of eighteen pockets you can store everything you need. The two concealed carry compartments which can accommodate a full sized handgun and any associated gear such as magazines, speed loaders, stun gun, handcuffs or mace use our trademark Back-Up-Belt System Velcro loop system. Pouches can be arranged in any number of ways to secure a handgun, magazines, flashlight, baton and handcuffs. This system keeps gear securely in place and provides immediate access with a quick pull of the pocket. 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 degree pocket that wraps completely around the vest to accommodate large bulky items. Made of 8.5 ounce, 100% cotton canvas, the 5.11 Tactical Vests will last a lifetime. The Tactical Vest is triple-stitched and bartacked throughout making it one tough piece of equipment. The 5.11 Tactical Vest uses only quality YKK Zipper and Prym snaps. You can be sure that your gear will be secure with the quality hardware we use on all of our 5.11 Tactical Series Products. We’ve included a steel D-ring for clipping gear to the exterior of the vest as well as a key clip to keep your keys safe. All of the Velcro closures will hold tight even under repeated use. The 5.11 Tactical Vests 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. If you plan on carrying large amounts of gear on a regular basis we recommend that you go up one size so that the bulk of a heavy load can be more easily accommodated. Also perfect for the outdoors including hunting and hiking.
