I wear a size 50-long body armor which fits nicely into this locker. Yes, you do have to fold in the tuck-in flaps and the straps, but it carries my vest just fine. I bought this locker for both storing my vest away at home and for duty use. Its sturdy and stays locked. The most important thing is that it protects my armor from direct element (sun) exposure in transport to my next duty station. I highly recommend it.
