    Apparently(arent they all Laughing Laughing Laughing ) this vest was used by an SAS member during the Gulf91 conflict.

    Standard apart from 2 pouches have been removed from the sides of the 2 larger pouches and all internal dividers have also been removed.Also 2 metal rings and a spring clips have been attached to allow it to be closed at the chest.

    They have also been used by the US Special Forces in OEF/OIF. I have photographic evidence of these vests being used as late as 2005 by USSF personnel. Nice piece!
