5.11 Tactical® Taclite® Pro Vests for Men
The quality of this vest is most impressive, right down to the metal zipper -- most of the competitors use cheap plastic ones. It fits me well, is comfortable to wear and is long enough to conceal a belt holster. It has loads of pockets for all manner of gear, and the velcro-backed concealed carry pocket in conjunction with the 5.11 velcro-backed holster allows the user to customize the position and angle of the concealed pistol. There is ample room inside for a full-size 1911, if not quite a shotgun, but the system works best with a compact pistol, such as the M&P Shield -- no tell-tale bulges or sagging, and not much to get snagged on when presenting the weapon.
My only disappointment was that the holster wasn't sold with the vest, and it wasn't clear to me from the product description that it is needed. It is -- and is well worth the extra money -- but I would have liked that to be made more clear up front.

excellent cc vest
Excellent vest. Lots of pockets for gear, cut long to covrer hip holster, great fabric & vents for hot weather. Sturdy well secured concealed carry pockets inside. I looked at several vests before picking this one - glad I waited. Great product, great value.
