    Nice vest, Gary!

    How common are the newer-issue vests in this pattern with the plate pockets on the front and the rear over in the UK?

    To be honest I have idea of it's age,I've had it a while, the ballistic rating is a mystery too....this has a plate carrier in the rear,but the front has no pockets at all...(I retrofitted some myself) I have no idea why it would be this way...very odd,

    I believe these types are only protected against frag....

    thanks for looking Wink

    Hi Ben.

    Very common,there's ton's on ebay....and my local surplus sells 'em for £65,in Desert DPM, top of the range stuff I suppose...which is too rich for my blood...I paid £5 for this one....as it was lying in the bottom of a bin...... Wink

    I have one on display (just a cover) that I filled with camping mat foam that I cut to fit inside -- it looks and fills out just like the kevlar, but the only investment was the outer cover. Cool

    I too am a bin-diver, for the cheap deals. Laughing

    Ben.

    I've seen yours....and nicked your idea for the camping mat insert....Ideal for paint balling,and add's a bit of cushioning when I jump about,trying to dodge the incoming shots.... Wink
