Description

Details

PROBLEM: U.S. troops serving in Iraq and Afghanistan wanted to maximize Onbody-Cargo carrying capacity. They also needed to be able to quickly and easily remove the carried load from their body armor. SOLUTION: The OVER-ARMOR tactical vest is a load-bearing vest that slips over standard body armor systems and can be removed just as easily. Its unique wrap-around design increases cargo capacity, offering 50 percent more mounting space than conventional systems and enabling troops to better balance the load.
  • INCREASES CARGO CAPACITY: Wrap-around design provides additional space for gear attachment - 50% more mounting area than conventional systems.
  • BETTER LOAD DISTRIBUTION: The tactical vest’s additional mounting space allows operator to better balance the load.
  • EASY-ON, EASY-OFF: Fits over standard Body Armor systems - slip on, zip-up and go. Remove the load when you don’t need it while still retaining your ballistic protection.
  • COLOR-CORRECT: Get the camo pattern that best matches your combat environment or uniform.
  • MODULAR: Numerous GRID-LOK™ loops allow operator to fully customize the tactical vest for mission specific needs.
  • FULLY ADJUSTABLE: 4 simple adjustment points allows tactical vest to fit over all existing US Military Body Armor systems.
  • WEAPONS MOUNTING POINTS: welded D-rings for secure & instant weapons attachment/access. Designed specifically for WOLF-HOOK M4-Sling.
  • DURABLE: 1000D. Cordura® fabric, High Tenacity Nylon thread, webbing, and massive YKK # 10 "Self-healing" coil zipper makes for a rock-solid load-bearing platform. Redundant stitching and bar-tack reinforcements for extra durability.
  • OVER-ARMOR load bearing tactical vest fits over most size Small to XL body armor.
  • With the addition of Extender Panels fits over most XL and XXXL body armor.

Kick ass! It's what we Americans have done for centuries all over the globe. From the halls of Montezuma to the shores of Tripoli and true American lightning eaters do it wearing only the best made gear made in the greatest country ever known to man. Great work SOB! (Posted on 1/17/2014)

I love this vest. I have been using this since last June and it has held up very well. Very modular and lots of room to put gear where you need it. The vest is very strong and light weight. A+ gear in my opinion. (Posted on 1/4/2014)

I used this to replace my belt system for local security and I can say its working well. There are a few mods and tweaks I need to make but this is a doable proposition. I will also keep this as emergency bug out kit as the ability to mod this is welcome relief. More updates as I take this vest into further testing. (Posted on 12/10/2013)

I have had one of these now for about four months and I love it. I have worn it several times now and I have it loaded down with a 9 mag tripple pouch and several other pouches and I love the adjustable shoulder strap. You can make this fit perfectly to the point where you barely feel any load shift at all. A+ (Posted on 12/2/2013)

Great VestReview by John

Very strong materials, fits well over body armor, and is fully adjustable. Adjusting the size can be a bit of a hassle, the snaps for the webbing are difficult to get to, but once you've got it set where you want it, you won't have to worry about it coming loose on you. The zipper is also pretty tough, which is something I was initially worried about. Plenty of webbing all over to attach a large amount of pouches nearly anywhere you want them, which is the largest benefit of this vest. I highly recommend this vest if you need a rugged and versatile load bearing system. (Posted on 10/5/2013)

I wanted this for the long hiking I do out in Colorado. It works great at holding everything I need and it allows me to distribute the weight over my torso. I get less pain when I'm on a long hike it in the mountains. GREAT! (Posted on 5/30/2013)

The quality work and material that went into making this vest is obvious. The zipper is very heavy duty, but is actually my only gripe since it is sometimes hard to get the zipper started quickly. I am learning how to position everything to get it started but it still takes a little longer than it should. All in all this is a great vest with good adjustments and plenty of MOLLE real estate. It is certainly a great value at the sale price! (Posted on 4/11/2013)
Even fits "warrior sized" fightersReview by Eli
Value
Quality
Price
Being what Pat Rogers calls "warrior sized" (5' 7" and a fit 135 lbs), I was concerned that this vest might not go small enough for me to wear without armor underneath. It does fit me, though. I have the adjustment on the back adjusted as small as it will go and it fits well. The adjustments could even be doubled over to get it a bit smaller. It's long enough that I have to wear my war belt over the bottom of the vest. I was worried about this at first, but after some use I've found that I really like this setup. The only thing that could be improved is that there should be a way to secure the adjustment flaps on the inside of the vest. When the vest is adjusted small like I have mine, those flaps really move around and can make the vest take on some strange shapes. Some velcro would go a long way. It's not a big deal, just a minor annoyance. All in all, it's a great vest and it was exactly what I was looking for. (Posted on 3/11/2013)

I bought this LBV with about $1,000 worth of other Spec-Ops Brand gear. All of it has been top-notch.

The D-rings are metal and well anchored.

There is MOLLE everywhere.

The only issue is it doesn't breath as well as mesh, but it does hold more sturdy. (Posted on 1/11/2013)

The OverArmor Vest is very high quality construction (as usual with spec ops) and carries gear very well. It does run a little hot in higher temps(as opposed to mesh) but hey, your gonna be sweating in higher temps anyway if your doing it right. It feels solid on your body not flimsy like mesh. I'm thinking of trying to use it at work ( I'm an aircraft mechanic). Great product!! (Posted on 7/14/2012)

This is the best way to carry your gear over your IBA. The issue Load Carrier is crap. This is the only Tac-Vest that is designed big enough to fit over the IBA. An excellent choice. I just purchased my second one. I had my first for five years, it survived a year in Iraq, two NTC rotations, a year in A-stan and a JRTC rotation, plus all the FTX in between. (Posted on 6/19/2012)

PAL webbing galore..Review by Warren

A friend of mine bought one of these and I had a chance to play with it awhile back out at our local range.

It seemed well-made; just like everything else Spec-Ops makes. There is a boatload of PALS webbing on it to attach virtually any MOLLE pouches that you want to on it.

I didn't get a chance to wear it over armor while I was out there. I just wore it simply as a molle vest and it worked great. It was very comfortable and not binding on my 200+ lb. frame.. :-) (Posted on 1/27/2012)

Received the package quickly and well packaged. The vest is very well made and is adjustable to customize your fit. I emailed a question about the vest and received an answer very quickly. The only need I would add would be a pair of internal breast pockets. This will be used as part of my EDC Kit and Bug Out Bag when I need a solution right in the middle. Made in the USA and the warranty were major reasons for my purchase and would recommend this vest. (Posted on 1/15/2012)

I have owned this product for 3 years, through one tour and not once has it failed me.

The IOTV is a pain to don and remove, especially with all the carried equipment. This over armor vest made switching between roles as SAW gunner, Rifleman, Driver and Gunner quick and painless. In the years I have owned this, not a tear, rip or shred. Very good system, a great investment, and saves a dollar in the long run, because if this gets destroyed, the issue vest is still in its bag back at garrison! (Posted on 11/2/2011)
Lots of space to attach pouchesReview by Jeremy

I have this OAV in UCP. It is well made and provides a lot of "real estate" to attach MOLLE pouches and gear. Works well with hydration systems as well. This vest is a vast improvement over the standard issue load bearing vest. However, there is room for improvement. I would like to see this vest made with interior document pockets. Also, the next evolution would be to have a version of this vest that can double as a plate carrier. Currently, Spec Ops Brand does not offer any plate carriers. That would be a great addition to your product line. (Posted on 10/19/2011)
