Tactical vest

What does a tactical vest do?

Tactical vests are used by airsoft players, law enforcement, and military personnel. They are designed to protect the wearer from physical harm and provide storage for equipment and accessories.


Tactical vests come in various styles and colours, but they all have basic features. They are made from tough, durable materials like Kevlar or Cordura, and they have several pockets and pouches to accommodate equipment.


Tactical vests usually have a front and back panel, and they are fitted with shoulder straps and waist belts to keep them in place. The front panel is traditionally covered with Velcro or MOLLE webbing.

Are tactical vests good?

Yes, tactical vests are relatively effective at protecting the wearer from physical harm. They are also very versatile and can carry a wide range of equipment and accessories.

However, tactical vests are not perfect. They can be pretty bulky and heavy, limiting movement and flexibility. Additionally, they are not always comfortable to wear for long periods.

What do you keep on a tactical vest?

Most wearers would keep ammunition, magazines, and other essential gear on their tactical vest. However, the storage capacity of a tactical vest varies depending on the model. Some vests have quite a lot of space, while others are more limited.

It is also important to remember that not all tactical vests are created equal. Some models are better suited for carrying certain items than others. For example, a tactical vest designed for airsoft use will not be as suitable for carrying law enforcement equipment.

What is the difference between a tactical vest and a plate carrier?

The main difference between a tactical vest and a plate carrier is that a plate carrier is designed to carry body armour plates. Although some models include pockets, tactical vests are not usually fitted with armour plates.

Plate carriers are also typically larger and bulkier than tactical vests. They are designed to provide maximum protection to the wearer, while tactical vests are more focused on versatility and utility.

What tactical vests do the military use?

The British army uses Infantry DPM Camo Assault Vests. This is one of the main tactical vests, but various others are used depending on mission and requirements. The Infantry DPM Camo Assault Vests feature Coverable Velcro fasteners, Water resistance, Hydration system mount, and Bergan pocket mount. They have a wide range of storage pouches.

AR 15 tactical vest

An AR 15 tactical vest is made for carrying AR-15 rifles. It is a MOLLE style vest with various pouches and pockets for holding ammunition, magazines, and other essential gear. It also has a built-in pistol belt, and it is fitted with shoulder and waist straps to keep it in place.

Tactical vest with plates

Tactical vests with plates are designed to carry body armour plates. These vests are larger and heavier than standard tactical vests, but they offer greater protection to the wearer. They typically have more pockets and pouches for carrying equipment, including ballistic panels for extra protection.

Which is better, a tactical vest or backpack?

A tactical vest is better than a backpack for carrying equipment because it is more organised and versatile. Backpacks are not designed for carrying tactical gear, whereas tactical vests are specifically tailored for this purpose. Vests have a variety of pockets and pouches that can be used to store ammunition, magazines, and other essential gear.

Can you wear tactical gear in public?

Yes, you can wear tactical gear in public. There is no law forbidding it, and it is not illegal to own or use the tactical gear. However, you may attract negative attention if you wear it in public. There may be legal issues if one wears tactical gear that deceives the public into believing they are a member of the armed forces. It is generally advisable to avoid wearing tactical gear in areas that are not necessary or appropriate.

Can anyone buy tactical?

Yes, anyone can buy tactical gear. It is often sold through a surplus army 

retailer and a wide range of products are available.

What should you consider before buying a tactical vest?

Before buying a tactical vest, you should consider the following factors:

  • The type of tactical vest you need. There are different vests for different purposes, so you need to decide what you will use it for.
  • The size and weight of the vest. Tactical vests come in various sizes, so you need to choose one that is comfortable to wear. The vest's weight will also affect how comfortable it is to wear.
  • The features of the vest. Ensure the vest has all the features you need, such as pockets, pouches, and straps.
  • The price. Tactical vests can range in price from a few hundred dollars to a few thousand dollars, so you need to decide what you can afford.
  • The quality of the vest. Make sure the vest is made from high-quality materials and is well-constructed.
