A really great vest

 Rated 5.0 stars

From LK


The two chest pockets that go under your arms will conceal a Glock pistol perfectly. Also the side pockets zip through to the inside of the vest. The zipper also has two separate fasteners and zips up towards your neck and once zipped up if you need to access your belt you can unzip up from your waist to access your pants/etc. I'm a good size guy at about 220 lbs, 5'11, 36 inch waist and the XL is perfect for me. It's great with a t-shirt underneath. It's plenty warm and cuts the wind quite a bit too. The collar zips up around your throat snug but does not choke you. The whole vest is flexible and has a cool almost dive suit feel to it. It flexes with you rather than choking you like some vests do that don't flex. I am really happy with this vest. Another winner from 511.

Zipper quality

 Rated 3.0 stars

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!

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

Almost perfect

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

Concealment and class.

 Rated 5.0 stars

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

 Rated 4.0 stars

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.
