Zipper quality


From Eugene


I would give this vest a better review if it had a stronger zipper. I have two of these and like them very much but both of them have had the zipper go bad. For what they cost they should have used a higher quality zipper.

Very light weight!


From John


Keeps you warm and protected. Pockets for concealed pistol are deep!

Almost perfect


From LCB

from No. Virginia

Very comfortable and light weight enough to wear in warm weather. Would blend in better if the collar would lay flat.

Great fit

Like but don't like


From Dan

from Grand Chute, Wisconsin

I will purchase an XL to replace the L I have.

Concealment and class.


From Mike

from New Brunswick, NJ

This is perfect for concealment of weapon. It does not shout out police or military, fits in anywhere. Works to keep chill off if necessary, but not too heavy for warm weather use.

Love it!


From Todd

from Pittsburgh. PA

Light enough to wear inside. Warm enough for winter outside.

This vest is the answer to any question.


From mb

from Greenville, NC

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


From John Bryan

from Carrollton GA

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!


From Will B

from Houston, TX

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.
