5.11 Tactical Vest

!
Black, Khaki, OD
After the FBI National Academy began issuing the 5.11 Tactical Pant for training, the agency asked 5.11 Tactical to create a tactical vest. The vest had to be long enough to conceal a weapon, plus have the functionality to organize and carry plenty of gear. 5.11 Tactical listened to their needs and came up with the original 5.11 Tactical Vest. It delivers all the Academy asked for and is one of our best-sellers.

Durability
The 5.11 Tactical Vest is constructed of double-layer, 8.5-oz. 100% cotton canvas for enhanced abrasion protection. It has a reinforced half-collar, an ID tab on the left chest, quad-stitching throughout and 55 bartacks in high-stress areas. Sturdy hardware includes genuine YKK™ zippers, quality Prym™ snaps and a convenient D-ring.

Innovation
On the outside, the vest resembles a photographer’s vest, but that’s where the similarities end. The 5.11 Tactical Vest holds an ample amount of gear and is long enough to both inconspicuously cover your belt-holstered firearm and conceal a weapon at the waist.

Storage
Only the 5.11 Tactical Vest features 18 specialized pockets, including chest pockets, two rifle or pistol magazine pockets, a 360˚ pocket that wraps around the entire vest interior, and rear water bottle or binocular pockets. There are places for your handgun, flashlight, radio, duty knife, maps, pens, important papers, snacks, cell phone, sunglasses and more. We’ve even included a key hook so you can locate your keys!

Versatility
Because the 5.11 Tactical Vest is compatible with 5.11’s Back-Up Belt System®, you can easily attach several BBS pouches which hold cuffs, holster, baton, mace or mags – to the vest interior. With the ambidextrous Back-Up Belt System®, you can comfortably distribute and balance your gear.

Functionality
For work, play and travel, count on the practical and proven 5.11 Tactical Vest for maximum functionality, comfort, value and innovation. There’s no need to carry separate gear bags. You can load up your vest, then wear as needed with the 5.11 Professional Polo or 5.11 Covert Casual Shirt and 5.11 Tactical Pant. Built to last, the versatile 5.11 Tactical Vest is one of the most practical, well-designed concealment garments in the industry.

Black, Flat Dark Earth
The ultimate tactical platform, designed by experienced special forces operator Kyle Lamb. The LBE Vest, field tested by VTAC is made from a stiffened mesh that provides the necessary structure for all your gear, yet allows air in for ventilation and breathability. The LBE Vest has our hidden document pockets and is fully compatible with our pouches plus standard molle gear. A grab handle is located on the interior of the vest, not visible to an outsider, but there if needed. The LBE Vest is adjustable in girth and length and is available in M/L and XL sizes. Imported.

The 5.11 Slickstick™ is compatible with standard molle attachment systems, yet functions like none other. The Slickstick™ slides through a UV-resistant ring making it easier to arrange and attach your pouches and other gear. Slickstick attaches like a normal molle attachment, but it slides to make it easier. To remove an item, just pop the snap and pull the stick out.
