View Full Version : Interesting new vest idea...

May 08, 2004, 22:31
...not a tactical vest (sorry ninjas) but an super versatile (tons of options) hunting/hiking/shooting/survival vest. 'Thought you might like to check it out. I really like mine.

They make 'em to order so they should fit anyone. I know that they can be made to perfectly fit a LARGE person like me - 6'4", 250lbs.

Looks like a robust hunting vest.

A very expensive hunting vest.
I'll keep my "ninja" gear thank you.

Huh? I must have missed something here.

I left out the letter "k" in "thank you"

nothing specific to you Mr. Parrish, just agreing with you characterization of it as a "hunting vest".

Ahh, got it now.

Materials are pretty robust but I see your point.

Does it have a provision for a water bladder?

It has 6front pockets the two lower are actually mini packs. It has a fanny pack with 2 water bottle houlders and a insulated pouch for a hydration blader aprox. 2 liters. I have been useing mine while spring bear hunting and love it. With temps ranging from 40 deg. to 80 deg.I fill the bladder daily works great. Gary's sells the bladders also.

I like mine more every time I use it. Takes about 3 weeks to get to you though. I'd suggest getting your orders in now if you want one. Really quality work.

I already use my Israeli LBV as a "hunting vest".....The designs are utilitarian...multi-purpose..., though perhaps not designed with that in mind.

thats a pretty slick rig, but i wear the good ole load bearing equip, belt, 2 canteens, butt pack, and attach whatever else i need such as .45, knife, etc. i have used it for years hunting and hiking and such, works great (and cheap to boot). i could buy a real nice pair of danners for $245 or another fal receiver.

Looks like a nice general purpose vest.
My favorite is an Air Force survival vest, its a "Mesh body", cool .
I have no need for a Tactical Vest, just something to carry my "Possibles"
At 53, I don't expect to join the Infantry.

If the SHTF I'd want large pockets to hold Pints of whiskey, and a few small pockets for a about a thousand 22LR.

;) :p
