View Full Version : Tactical Tailor vest magazine pockets
May 13, 2004, 12:31
I'm really liking the design of the Tactical Tailor Tac-Vest 1A "Rifle" (http://www.tacticaltailor.com/catalog/vests.htm), but how well do 20 round FAL mags fit into the pockets, and how easy are they to extract? If they aren't desirable for FAL mags, could someone reccomend a vest of similar layout/construction that would hold FAL mags better, possibly one that didn't close the mag pockets with velcro?

Get a modular vest with TT single 308 pouches with the elastic top.
Customizability is the way to go.

Tactical Tailor makes nice gear. I have their MAV-2 rig....set up for FAL / M1A.
Totally modular....if you want to change over to another gun / caliber...simply switch the mag pouches. Tactical Tailor uses Malice clips instead of webbing or old Alice clips to attach the pouches to the main vest / panels. They are heavy duty plastic, and work very well. One thing nice about the Malice clips is that they actually LOCK in place...unlike the web straps with the typical snap on them.
If memory serves me correctly the MAV2 setup is about $165...but it gives you flexibility the vest you mentioned doesn't have.
PM me is you want to talk more.
TT is guaranteed for life as well...plus made in Washington state

I know it's expensive, but I'm looking at purchasing the Special Operations Equipment ) Patrol Vest.
Four main magazine pockets are each capable of holding
Three M-16 magazines
Two M-14, G3, FN/FAL magazines
Sixteen rounds of 12 Gauge on an optional pull out tray ($25)
One HC/CS or Smoke Grenade
Four pistol magazine pouches each pouch capable of holding
Single-stack 1911 mag up to the Socom mag.
SureFire lights leatherman/utility, or any small item

yeah.. while I own four SOE rigs for my AR and AK, I still recommend buying modular.... buy the base and pick and choose your pouches.
SOE is GREAT gear, and the price is commensurate with what you get, however with recent price hikes, I find that they may have placed themselves out of the price loops for a good majority of the shooting population.
