I was just issued this vest at my department. This is the second vest I have had and this is much more lightweight and comfortable than the first vest I had. This is tailored to my body and is not as bulky so i can still wear the seat belt in my cruiser unlike my previous vest. This vest also does not make me sweat near as much as my old vest.
