I bought this brand new from "Bullet Proof Me" in Austin. It is US made, and nearly identical to their current model shown here: http://bulletproofme.com/TACTICAL_Body_Armor.shtml#Interceptor
. It has been carefully stored ever since in a climate controlled storage locker. It has never been outside my gear room. It has never been sweated in. There are no rips, tears, abrasions, stains, spots, odors, or any other imperfections that I could find. The elastic is 100% good. It will literally pass for brand new. There are no issues or problems with it at all. This is a great heavy duty vest setup, but I am moving to something lighter, so no longer need it.
It has a convenient front opening with Velcro so it does not have to be slipped over your head. It has extended coverage compared to most tactical vests, sitting lower on the belly, and having no gap at the top of shoulders. It has MOLLE web strips on the front and back, and a drag handle. You can add 10"x12" plates for rifle protection on the chest and back, and the upper arm protectors have smaller plate pockets, too (none included). There is a compartment for a camelback type bladder on the back (not included).
This sale includes the vest with the original Level IIIA panels throughout, including in the permanently attached shoulder and neck protectors, detachable upper arm protectors, detachable groin protector, and detachable throat protector.
If you ordered one yourself from Bullet Proof Me, it would cost you around $1500 and take 3 months minimum to get it, if you can even get them to take your order, which you can't. I know, I've tried.
