The 5.11 Tactical Vest, made of 8.5 ounce, 100% cotton canvas, is a great alternative to conventional concealed carry methods, and especially designed to comfortably carry a heavy load.
The vest goes with a total of eighteen pockets. The two concealed carry compartments, designed for quick access, can easily accommodate a full sized handgun and any associated gear such as magazines, speed loaders, stun gun, handcuffs or mace. Both of these compartments use well-known 5.11 Velcro loop Back-Up-Belt System which allows the attachment of 5.11 Back-Up-Belt System pouches. These 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. There's even a 360 degree pocket that wraps completely around the vest to accommodate large bulky items.
The 5.11 Tactical Vests is triple-stitched and bartacked throughout making it one tough piece of equipment. It also uses quality YKK zipper and Prym snaps, and goes with a steel D-ring for clipping gear to the exterior of the vest as well as a key clip to keep keys safe. All of the Velcro closures will hold tight even under repeated use.
The shoulder design distributes the weight across the back and shoulder area to reduce fatigue. The pockets are balanced as well to allow weight distribution 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.)
Ideal for law enforcement, military and fire professionals or security personnel, as well as for everyday use, airsoft and paintball enthusiasts or for fishing and hunting.
All the actual measurements given on the site as "armpit to armpit x 2" refer to the measurements of the garment and not the size it will fit.
The best way of checking if an item will fit is to measure a similar garment you have which fits well and compare the measurements.
When we give the "Armpit to armpit x 2" on an item it is measured directly at the top of the side seams (armpit to armpit) laid flat, then the measurement is doubled, giving the circumference.
If we state that an item is labelled "to fit xx" / XXcm" please check this against your own measurements.
