    SOLD



    I posted this for sale about a year ago, but several buyers backed out and it wore me out dealing with that, but I'm over it now!

    I'm dropping the price $200.

    This is a complete SWAT vest with hook/loop and snaps. These were/are extremely popular in the Colorado LE circles and the lady that hand makes them is now semi-retired and isn't doing vests anymore, so they are hard to find.

    I'm selling it with all of the accessories and US Armor IIIa panels, for:

    $400.00 to LEO only.

    It comes with two double mag pouches that hold one double stack pistol mag and one AR-15 magazine each. A total of two double stack pistol mags or four single stack 1911 mags and two rifle mags will fit.

    There is a dump pouch for flash bangs or miscellaneous kit.

    There is a gas mask holder.

    There is a radio holder.

    There is an integrated rifle sling on the front which is removeable.

    There is an integrated hydration system. I'm including an extra new blatter and tube.

    There are two police patches, one large one small for front and rear. The vest is designed to hold standard panels (II, IIa, IIIa) and/or rifle plates. It is fully adjustable and will fit skinny 170 lbs folks and me at 230 lbs.

    I am including a standard carrier for the IIIa panels in case you want a good concealable vest that is still under manufactures warranty.

    Vest was used sparingly (all training except a few callouts) for less than a year. The only wear marks are on the black snaps on the mag holders. I would rate the vest a 9.5 out of 10.

    The panels are in good shape and have not been improperly handled or cleaned. The concealable carrier is a US Armor model and is a 9/10. Used maybe 10 shifts. (It was my extra carrier)

    I need to off load this vest setup since I am not on SWAT and have moved to the crown control team. I have a bunch of turtle gear to pay for now and this vest needs a new home. I have a crap load of pictures and can take size measurements for folks if needed.

    Here are a few photos.

    Feel free to PM me if you are interested. I take paypal or a money order.

    This is posted in Cop Talk rather than the forsale forum because it is LEO only.

    Thanks!

    Cheese.

    The concealable vest was $580.00 brand new in late 2006-early 2007.

    The SWAT carrier and accessories was $250.00

    I've cut the price in half to $400.00

    Works just as good as molle. I prefer it because it isn't such a raging pain in the *** to reconfig like molle.

    Oh, good call!

    Cochise, that is an awesome set up and a great price. Unfortunately for me, I am scrounging up all the old gear from my previous PD job that I can for my new, but unpaid auxiliary PD job. Found an old vest, way past the ballistic warranty but I'm betting its still good. Stripped patches off old shirts, etc. When I manage to scrape up some cash, I'll check to see if you still have it, it would be well worth the price. Good luck!

    If I were smaller, (yes, I am a big guy), I would be about willing to spring for it. I am like a XXXL here lately. Past time to do some ab crunches and firm that up a little bit.

    Sounds good!

    I think you should buy it. Like a pair of "skinny jeans" to work up to. :supergrin:

    Nope. However, as a card carrying swivel holster sporting salt dog, you are eligible.

    I can cut that up and make 2 vests out of it for me. I am a smaller guy.

    :rofl: I haven't been thirty inches across the bottom at my fittest in the earlier part of the US Army.

    Unfortunately my ideal size would only take me down to about 35 to 38 completely strapped.:rofl:
