Elbeco V1 TexTrop External Body Armor Vest Carrier

Good product. Comfortable, no one realizes that it is a outer cover because it blends in with the uniform.

Elbeco V1 TexTrop External Body Armor Vest Carrier

Carrier looks good and is true to size. Much more comfortable, However it has worn the fabric on the sides and armpit of my uniform shirt, making it unserviceable.

Elbeco V1 TexTrop External Body Armor Vest Carrier

I received this item the other day and I am very impressed. For a lower cost vest carrier it looks great and fits well. Be sure to size properly I had to measure a few times and really visuallize the way it should fit prior to purchase. Very pleased.

Elbeco V1 TexTrop External Body Armor Vest Carrier

This is the most comfortable way I have ever worn a vest. My only complaints are the velcro sides, zipper would be better. Also, there is no badge tab on the carrier.

Elbeco V1 TexTrop External Body Armor Vest Carrier

I have had this for a couple of months now and the best part is that you can take it off whenever needed. There is no constant change of name tag and badge every time I change shirt. I tend to workout while on duty and there is nothing better than having to undo the velcro and take it off and slide it right back on in case something serious goes down. The current vest that I have fits inside with ease, I have another vest coming and hopefully it will be as easy as it has been.

Elbeco V1 TexTrop External Body Armor Vest Carrier

This vest carrier looks great at first but after a few months work of police work, the hook and loop fastening system will destroy your uniforms. The vest itself will also quickly fall apart due to normal wear and tear. This could be greatly improved by a zipper system or elastic band system. I would recommend the Blauer Armorskin as a much better alternative.

Elbeco V1 TexTrop External Body Armor Vest Carrier

The Elbeco VI external Body Armor Vest Carrier is amazingly cooler than an under shirt vest, and is more comfortable and can be removed easier and quicker than an undershirt, and you not have to keep changing your name plate and badge from shirt to shirt and is easier to clean and keep looking nice for your uniform. The inner plates can be changed out quickly and easily.
