This vest is well worth the price and I have no problem giving it my highest recommendations.
Both the informal design and the materials quality of the garment are as good as expected.
The 5.11 Tactical Vest is very popular with law enforcement officers and for good reason.

Basically I got this vest because I like to carry a lot of stuff. I like to have small tools on hand, a checkbook, an ipod, glasses, credit cards, some change and money, and a couple of pens, and a phone, and keys. That is what I usually carry around and it's a lot for pants' pockets, and fanny packs (although serviceable) look stupid. This vest carries all that with lots of pockets to spare, and it doesn't look like you're carrying anything!

As for the style, I like the look of it and the fact it comes down past the waist. It has some kind of authoritative look to it, even though it's just a black vest. So far I've only worn it during the winter and early spring months, so I don't know if I could wear during the summer.

The construction of the vest is great. It feels like it will last forever. The pockets, though numerous, are tough and keep closed. It was comfortable right out of the package.

I would recommend this to anyone who likes to carry around a lot of stuff but doesn't want a purse or a fanny pack, or bulging pockets.

Before you invest hundreds for a concealed vest, give this one a try. For the price, you can't go wrong in my opinion. The inside pockets work for left and right handed people and no matter what you carry, having four extra clips in their own pockets ought to get you through most situations. I added some elastic to the large inside bottom pocket but it really is not necessary. I just felt better with things more secure.
As to the vest in general it is loose fitting, but I figured that you normally wear a vest over a shirt and on warm days you want the circulation that the loose fit and the nice mesh will provide. I can adjust the fit more than 4 inches on each side, without it looking funny, for an eight inch reduction. Something that would make my cardiologist very happy. Yes, I'm working on it.
Pockets for a pad of paper, knife, flashlight, compass, and anything else that you need. Twenty three from my last count. Don't forget the pencil pockets which you can use for collapsible chopsticks, sunglasses or even.....a pencil. The inside, back, zippered pocket is lined for some reason. Nice touch.
This is more of a "Bert Gummer" vest for those who remember the Tremors movies. It will carry just about everything you want to have with you on a regular basis. This is not a substitute for a photography case or backpack due to the lack of padding, but I easily carry a small digital for pictures better than my cell phone will take. The black color makes this only a three season vest depending on where you are. For the hot Summer months I have a light colored version from a different manufacturer.
Well those are my thoughts. I've had this for a year and wore it often. It is October so it was time for a wash and dry before loading it up again. lol

This vest is very well constructed. It has the 17 pockets advertised, though a couple are very close (e.g., two pockets at the bottom-front, one behind another). The workmanship is excellent. The vest has a slit on the back with mesh underneath, to let air through in hot weather. The pockets can hold an incredible amount of stuff without it being in any way obvious -- even when the vest is hanging on a chair. Interior pockets look as if they would work well for a concealed handgun with spare clips. This was not our purpose for the vest, though, so we haven't tried that functionality. It would work well as a fishing vest or travel vest.

My husband got this vest to carry lots of stuff with him regularly (e.g., wallet, keys, pen), but also medical supplies for our Type 1 Diabetic daughter. While people often think nothing of demanding that they can look through your purse or bag, its really rare to have someone want to search your pockets. Inherenetly, this means that critical medical supplies are safer in pockets (e.g., insulin needles, insulin, emergency sugar).

Highly recommended.

This vest is great. Well made and very comfortable. Inside pockets will not profile your gun. I carry a full size 1911 and
plenty of mags very comfortably. Customer service was great and quick to respond. Reading customer reviews is what sold me on this vest.

I wear this every day to carry all the stuff that used to go in my pockets: wallet, pen, keys, chapstick, 9mm pistol, etc., and stuff that I didn't carry like a spare magazine for which there was never room without showing it. There are numerous pockets that have never been opened!

The major improvement I want is larger, canted carry pockets. There's room for larger pistols, and the orientation of the carry pockets doesn't present the grip in a normal manner (for me) in cross-draw fashion. The zipper holding the front closed is hard to start, and I'm hoping that it gets easier, over time.

The vest is comfortable, distributing weight evenly across the shoulders, doesn't get dirty (on the tan one, at least) easily, and allows totally inconspicuous carry anywhere.

This concealed carry vest is extreemly well made and comfortable and is true to size. My husband wore it all day on Christmas. He is still finding pockets he didn't see before.
