Great understated vest that provides concealment as well as carry capacity without bulk. I own 2 that I wear frequently around town in AZ as well as abroad in every adverse climate imaginable. Love these vests. The lower zipper uptake is less precise than I would like though.

Perfect for carrying a good bit of stuff without looking like it. The cell phone pocket is perfectly placed for one hand use. The bilateral chest pockets can conceal almost anything without bulk. This vest is incredibly warm without being too thick, so it's easy to layer above and below.

Great Vest

By John Bryan

from Carrollton GA

I have used this product for

  • Less than a month

I got this vest to wear with my conceal carry. It is very warm and thin. I love the pockets. The front chest zipper pocket is just big enough for a cell phone. The bad part is the collar will not lay down. Other than that I love wearing it.

Invest in this Vest!

By Will B

from Houston, TX

Pros

  • Comfortable
  • Discrete

My profession is

  • Other

I have used this product for

  • 1-3 months

Best Uses

  • Concealed Carry

The vest works great. I live in Houston and we get cold weather for a few days out of the year, but nothing that requires constant jacket wearing for the whole season. That's why this vest is so handy. Any temp below 70 degrees and I can put this on and easily conceal my Glock 32. It's comfortable, and you won't find yourself sweating each time you walk indoors. Perfect for layered clothing when it gets real cold. Additionally, you won't look like a CNN photographer, or some tactical ninja guy. Highly recommend for plain clothes, discrete, concealed carry! Since I am being objective, I would like to find a way to tame the collar from sticking up, but it isn't that big of a deal. Overall, buy the vest! You will be happy.

Thin, warm, well placed pockets.

By AreThree

from CO

Pros

  • large zippers
  • Pockets
  • Thin
  • Warm

Cons

  • A bit Stiff

My profession is

  • Other

I have used this product for

  • Less than a month

Best Uses

  • Use To Layer Clothing
  • Great With Light Jacket

I hadn't worn a vest since I was a child, and even then it was one of those really "poofy" ones with lots of filling.

I was very pleasantly surprised when the 5.11 Covert Vest showed up and was so thin! I was then surprised again at how warm it was!

Overall, I really like it and it will help me to continue Concealed Carry, as it allows more flexibility with hip or shoulder holsters.
