Tactical vests were once considered only to be worn on the job; however this is no longer true thanks to vests such as 5.11’s versatile tactical vests. Whether you’re looking for the perfect vest for that fishing trip you’ve have been planning or something comfortable to throw on while still having concealed weaponry, 5.11 has a vest that is sure to satisfy.
These vests encompass the comfort of the new lightweight Taclite fabric, which allows for maximum breathability and flexibility. The Teflon finish provides a stain resistant surface capable of taking on any liquids that are thrown at it. Also 5.11 vests have a variety of multi-use pockets which allows for use on the job, for vacation, or just a casual backyard barbeque. Pockets can hold anything from AR mags, maps, sunglasses, snacks, water bottles, etc. And like most 5.11 tactical clothes, there is an always handy hidden interior pockets. This pocket allows for concealment of any weapons, documents or anything else you would like to cover-up. Another strategic feature is the extra length which permits the belt to be covered at all times. This is essential for those undercover or off duty officers who carry their firearm on their side. 5.11’s vests, like any of 5.11’s products, are made to last; quad-stitched insures that even the toughest branch won’t rip through these.
I personally wear the vests, which of course come in a variety of colors, more than just at work. They are great for hunting and fishing, and have a nice casual look as well. Living in a hot, humid environment I need clothing that allows me to have maximum coverage (while exercising the 2nd amendment) as well as stay cool. With 5.11’s competitive prices, I recommend this purchase and believe its a good investment for a long-lasting, comfortable, high quality vest.
