5.11 Tactical Concealment Vest

by Legacy Reviewer, Verified Owner from United States, MS Written on August 1, 2012
My main purpose for this vest has been concealment at work (Pharmacist), but it is quite warm while at work, and HOT after work, but this has been a hot Summer. Should be great later this year.
I loaded up with as much as I could find (gun, mags, pepper, multi-tool, etc.)- everything concealed with ease, but it weighed about 8 pounds. You can carry just about anything in this vest confortably and securely. Would recommend this product.
Pros: Very well made; versatile, secure storage for almost anything
Cons: The 100% cotton canvas has proven too warm this summer. Will work well this Fall/Winter....
Would recommend: Yes

Great for Africa

by Legacy Reviewer, Verified Owner from United States, TN Written on May 13, 2012
I wore the vest in the streets of Dakar Senegal in the Quest Faire district. My companions carrying backpacks complained of sore shoulders at the end of the day. I had none of those issues. Great, secure storage of personal items. I would highly recommend the vest.
Pros: Plenty of secure storage in vest
Cons: A little warm on hot days...

Great Utility!

by Legacy Reviewer, Verified Owner Written on March 9, 2011
Read the reviews, bought the vest. As advertised, rugged & well planned. Will work well with concealed carry in both summer & winter months. Could be a bit warm in summer. Would like to see one in cotton/poly ripstop blend as well. Now buying one in each color...I am that pleased!
Pros: Rugged, Comfortable, Roomy, Well Thought Out
Cons: 100% Cotton Canvas Hot in the Heat!...
Would recommend: Yes

5.11 Tactical Vest

by Legacy Reviewer, from United States, IL Written on August 9, 2010
I purchased the 5.11 vest mainly for use in IDPA.

The cotton fabric is VERY durable and the stiffness works great for IDPA games. The inside pockets are very well thought out, but the outside pockets on the left side are a bit clumsy. I mean, honestly, who needs 2 rifle magazine pouches stitched to the outside? (Hint - that isn't concealment! Might as well wear a chest rig!) One large flapped pocket, like on the old Royal Robbins photo vests. probably would've been a much better design - use it as a dump pouch, mag pouch, whatever...

The adjustability cords on the side work well for us skinny guys.

All in all a decent design with excellent materials.
Pros: Durable, Heavy Weight Cotton, Inside pocket design.
Cons: Outside pockets are clumsy, "busy" design....
Would recommend: Yes

Well made vest.

by Legacy Reviewer, from United States, WA Written on May 24, 2010
A great vest no doubt. The only trouble I have had is the conceal pockets are a bit large and that can allow some slop with my SIG. Still working that issue out. I like that it can be machine washed, but I would also like a spot to easily embroider my company logo.
Pros: Strong, durable vest, lots of pockets, and distractions from CC.
Cons: Conceal pockets are a bit large....
Would recommend: Yes

5.11 Tactical Vest

by Legacy Reviewer, from United States, WA Written on January 2, 2010
Quick shipping, helpful advice on line. The vest is perfect for all needs for a beautifully simplistic bug out vest--holds 2 20 round ak mags, several 9 mm clips, extra 12 guage shells and more--including a 9mm in the side pocket--with a well worn baseball cap and a par of jeans, ya just don't stick out as one would with a fully loaded tactical vest---just what the dr. ordered--thanks
Pros: sturdy, practical, non "stick out" at you & others
Cons: none...
Would recommend: Yes
