While I know this vest is designed for law enforcement, I have been using it all day, 5-6 days a week in the maintenance field for years. I generally carry two radios (1 work, 1 fire dept.), a cell phone, numerous tools, lots of keys, etc. The vest has all of the pockets I need and allows me to distribute the 10 or so pounds of equipment weight onto my shoulders rather than my belt and pants. One minor issue is with the strength of the pockets. With daily use, the radio pockets usually wear holes in the bottom after about a year or so. I have been considering liners of some kind for the future. Over all I am well pleased with this product. I have looked for other alternatives but thus far been unable to find anything better to meet my needs. I just ordered number 5 or 6.
Received the vest and started to use it with my P938 for conceal carry on our walks. First, the packet to carry a small weapon is to large, it get lost in the deep pockets. Second, if you zip up the vest you need to unzip the zipper to get your weapon. Third, if you are right handed and use the clip pockets, all the weight is on one side. It looks stupid one side is loaded down. For a lefty the vest would be balanced. The last thing to impove the vest make the pocket smaller and be able to get to the weapon while the vest is zipped. If I new now I would have looked for another vest. I have another vest that is for colder weather and does not have these draw backs. Will keep the vest but it may be a good Christmas gift. Thank you
