Maxpedition tactical vests aren't designed so much for protection as they are for organization. Increase your efficiency by loading all of your essential equipment into one tactical vest for easy storage and accessibility. Maxpedition has crafted their tactical vests out of the same high tensile strength ballistic nylon that their other pouches and carrying cases are made out of, giving a Maxpedition tactical vest plenty of staying power. Ammunition, weapons, and accessories are easy to store in these vests, and many of them come with extra space for the attachment of other Maxpedition pouches to increase the vests' storage capacity. For a rig that allows you to carry ammo and more into battle without slowing you down, purchase a Maxpedition tactical rig.
