at the bottom of the front and back of the vest there are attachment clips. would be nice if they made an accesory to connect ur fatigue/duty pants to the vest. so when u move.. or run the vest doesnt slide up and keeps ur pants in place (just as in suspenders)

Good fit once adjusted.

Lots of attachment points, both webbing and velcro. The webbing goes all the way up, since there are no shoulder pads. Instead the straps in the shoulder area are covered with non-slip material for holding a rifle butt. Unfortunately this makes the straps too thick for some tight-fitting MOLLE gear (GrimLocs or even Speed Sticks. You can get them on, but it's work. If I had my way, I would have stuck to regular webbing, and maybe have a MOLLE/velcro attachable rifle pad instead.) This is really my only quibble with this vest, so i give it 4.5 stars.

Very easy to customize your vest the way you want it. I purchased several of the pouches and holsters and found them to be well made and easily installed. I would recommend this vest to anyone.

Tailor Made - Awesome Construction

I am 5'9" 186lbs, 44" chest, 32" waist and the Regular slipped on like it was made for me, no adjustments.

This is very heavy duty, but the mesh lets it breath.

Great MOLLE integration limited only by your budget and imagination and leaving enough room for the rifle stock.

The mesh is a little stiff right out of the bag, but I am confident it will break in as others have said.

Only improvement I would make is zippers for the pockets instead of velcro.

Best Non Plate Carrier On The Market

Best non plate carrier on the market! I decided to go with this non plate carrier because after weighing it down with a pistol, full pouches and loaded magazines, you have to consider your total load out weight and what your purpose of use is going to be. You also have the option on adding a hydration pack to the inside of the back. All of this works for me and I couldn't be more happier with it.

A very good LBE for field/tactical work. At 200 lbs. and 6', I wanted a vest that could go over coats and jackets but would snug up over just a shirt or BDU. The 2XL fits the bill for me. Down at it's smallest size it fits almost perfect in just a shirt and leaves plenty of room for extra clothes and a hydration pack. Very versatile in the config.

Comparing this vest to my cheaper version was like night and day. The 5.11 vest is so much nicer in every way. If you have a cheap airsoft like vest and you have never tried the 5.11 you will not be dissappointed. Breathable mesh, great adjustments, solid stitching and a top of the line zipper make this vest well worth the money.

One other thing I want to mention is the sizing as 5.11 does not make this clear for vests. For me I am 6'1 215 lbs with a 43" chest (I wear XL everything up top). I was able to try on both the regular and the 2XL version at my local retailer. The regular fit good but was only comfortable when it was fully adjusted out. The 2XL gave me more molle and I had to adjust it all the way in. So I went with the 2XL and it was really perfect for me.

Pros

  • Large Range Of Adjustment

I have used this product for

  • Less than a month

I purchased vest and other items directly from 5.11. It is adjustable for fit. Color and design is practical. Considering material- the plastic velcro backing on attachment areas snap-crackle-pops LOUD when slightly flexed, precluding use of this product in any environment requiring stealth. In any other environment, it would just be annoying. This would be an easy fix for 5.11. Noting 5.11's customer base, I don't know how this vest made it out to market.
