It's a pretty basic vest. basic front and back panels with front and rear shirt tails. The ballistic panels can be easily removed through the lining.

    1st review

    I haven't had to use it yet... aka haven't been shot in it yet!

    on the range, it keeps me as cool as it can in the 80 degree weather.

    The shirt tails are a pain sometimes because they'll come untucked.

    I have one of these. It fits well. Slides around a bit over UA t-shirt, but what armor doesn't?

    Good vest but if you buy the Tailored Armor Carrier that looks like your uniform shirt it is a lot better and much more comfortable.

    I have had this armor for a while now and I still rate it the same, five stars. It continues to remain cool and light weight while still offering the protection needed. Mine is a type II and is reiforced with a trama pad insert. I love wearing this armor concealed!

    I wear the level 2 paca GS series vest. It is one of the litest vests I have had. I would recommend it to any cop.
