Tactical Assault Gear Vests Add Protection & Carrying Options!

Oct 2, 2012 • News4 Comments

Tactical Assault Gear knows what it takes to keep you safe.  They make some of the toughest, most dependable gear in the world, and a big part of that is finding a good balance of what you need.  Today, I’m going to take you through a few of the features found in T.A.G. Tactical Vests, and why these features help you when on duty or on the battlefield.  While they have a number of superb options, I’ll focus on the TAG Banshee Rifle Plate Carrier.

First, since this is a plate carrier, let’s talk about protection.  The Banshee Plate Carrier can, of course, carry armor plates to defend you from ballistics and other projectiles.  It can accept 10×12 inch ESAPI or similar Plates.  ESAPI stands for Enhanced Small Arms Protective Insert, and they were first brought into usage by the US Army in 2005.  These armor plates offer more support than SAPI plates and are a great way to boost your safety.  That 10×12 inch plate is going to keep the chest of most people fairly well protected, so without question the primary reason anyone would choose the TAG Banshee is to keep themselves safe.

TAG Banshee with attachments

The TAG Banshee can accommodate a number of different attachments.

But that’s just one reason.  T.A.G. does a fantastic job of giving you more than just an armor carrier.  If you’re a law enforcement or military professional you will have to carry quite a bit of equipment.  The Banshee, like many TAG Tactical Vests, also gives you the chance to carry extra gear.  The PALS web attachments give you the opportunity to hook up all sorts of pouches and other gear on your vest.  If you need to add mag pouches, flashlight pouches or a dump pouch to your loadout, the TAG Banshee gives you a perfect opportunity that’s both comfortable and easy to use.

Of course, with all that equipment you are definitely going to look at comfort.  It may not seem like a big deal for the first couple minutes, but when you’re hauling a ton you need proper support.  First, you need the vest to fit properly.  The Banshee is fully adjustable so it’ll fit just the way you need.  The shoulder straps are also well-padded and there are quick-release buckles and straps to help you get in and out of the Banshee at a moment’s notice.  If you are injured in the line of duty, you’ll appreciate the medic being able to get the vest out of the way so you can receive medical treatment right away.

You can use a TAG Tactical Vest in a lot of ways because of all the customizable options, so whether you want to carry a hydration pack and feed the tube through the hose guides or hook up radio wires straight through the vest so they aren’t lose (in case of snags) you can do that.  While the gear you carry is heavy, the vest is not, and this will help keep you performing at your best for a long period of time.  Find a TAG Banshee Tactical Plate Carrier at OpticsPlanet today!

    Ok what is new Surefire has been making replacement forearms with lights for year for both Remington and Mossberg, problem is the cost low in being 300.00. You can get a replacement forearm with a rail and attach a 1 inch mount with a tac light a do the same thing. I set up 3 shotguns for what one would cost if I did a surefire replacement forearm.

    That’s a great idea, and one we hope SureFire looks into as well! I will say this particular light is so ergonomic that an additional rail might make it too bulky, but there does seem to be room on the end for a rail. Maybe next years model will have further customization options.

  4. Brian says:

    This particular model and the intuitive and ergonomic design is what’s really new with the SureFire Mossberg Forend light. You certainly can buy a regular replacement forearm with a rail, but the great design on this light makes it much easier to turn on without changing your grip.
