Tactical vests

( number of products: 88 )

Even the most minimalist airsoft set requires carrying one or more necessary accessories. What to do, when the pockets of your uniform are no longer sufficient? Here are some tips on how to choose a tactical vest!

What is a tactical vest?

A tactical vest is the most popular type of accessory used in airsoft - it is used for carrying numerous accessories that are necessary during a game. The most popular types of vests are so called full vests - belts with suspenders, Chest Rigs and Plate Carrier.

What to look for when choosing the best tactical vest for you?

A tactical vest should most of all make it easier to carry your gear around, as well as to draw your weapon during the game. When choosing a vest, first and foremost you should take into account what it will be used for.

Despite the fact that belts with suspenders were invented over a century ago, the models used today are very comfortable. They are a popular choice among players who opt for games taking place in a forest. Their main advantage is that they allow players to crawl (pouches are placed on the side, not on the chest height). However, as they make your figure a bit wider, they are not particularly welcomed in CQB. One of the most valued features of such an accessory is the ventilation it provides.

Chest Rig is a tactical vest with open back, recommended especially for those players who value mobility above everything else. Chest Rigs are often combined with backpacks, which may then be quickly removed during combat.

Integrated vests (currently out of use due to their high weight) provide carrying capacity all over their surface. They are often adapted to work with shoulder straps and dummy ballistic cartridges. They are characterized by high weight and load capacity.

Plate Carrier is a lighter variant of full body vest, which is based on small ballistic inserts that protect key organs. The cargo space is on two sides, but it is much smaller than in the case of full vests. Plate Carrier vests are a good compromise between weight and load capacity, while providing ventilation.

Keep in mind that most of the tactical vests on the market are equipped with the MOLLE attachment system, which allows you to adjust the vest to your needs. There is no need to worry that the chosen vest does not have pouches for your specific replica, as they can be easily replaced. In the same way, you can attach first aid kits, holsters, cargo pockets or water bottles.

Although most vests have a universal size, when buying you should also pay attention to this aspect, and - if necessary - adjust it accordingly. Even the best configured kit will not serve its purpose if it impedes movement on the playing field.
