View Full Version : What Tac-Vest to buy?

05-06-2008, 09:00 PM
I looked through other threads but didn't see anything having to do with this topic.

I'm looking for a tac-vest that holds the average 4 pods and a rear tank. I don't need anything too fancy...black and simple will do the trick. Actionvillage is a no go...they don't ship to anyone will a Canadian pay-pal account...go figure. Rap4 is a lil higher than I wanna go. Any website or store suggestions would be much appreciated.

the only thing that comes to mind is SpecOps. You can build one to match whatever you want it to be.

^what cyber said. RAP4 also has some vests and harnesses in the accessories section.

Both companys make great looking vests but they're a little more pricey than I had in mind. $50 - 70$ is what I'm looking for.

I found one that looks pretty decent. Has anyone ever used this brand?

I got some of their other items in a package deal and I wasn't very impressed with it. Can't speak for their vests though. I'd say save your money for a little bit and buy one from SpecOps. They're light, lots of room for attachment, and blend beautifully. It really is worth the extra dough.

I believe you, but over $100... gotta think about it. Plus I just dropped $1500 on my car today, I feel like driving it off a cliff.

Badlands pb out of toronto will ship for you. If u are in eastern ontario, and can get near proadvantage pb, they can get you anything.

As far as vest go, i use a Gen X Global. 4 pod holders, tank pouch for ur remote coil, 3 grenade pouches, id pouch, large zippered pockets through out the vest, tac radio pouch, and removable padding.

fully adjustable, so it fits like a glove, I love them:)
