Looking for a tactical vest that will support AR15 mags and pistol mags. I have looked at several including SOE http://www.militarygear.org/html/vest.html I do not want to spend $300.00 on one. Any suggestions for a cheaper model.

Blackhawk Industries! www.blackhawkindustries.com Great vest which will hold 12 magazines...about $125 retail...see them selling for 85-95 on ebay. Can get them to hold 12 mags or mags and pistol holster etc. I have one. It is great!!

I have the Blackhawk Urban Tactical. It sells for $280.00 but I'm sure someone knows where to get them for $40.00. Of course these same folks will tell you what complete crap BH gear is.

Does anyone in the US make something similar to this though? [img]http://www.isayeret.com/gear/vest-new.jpg[/img] Its the Isreali Army's new LBV-which also happens to be a class IIIA ballistic vest with interior pockets to upgrade to III or IV depending on what plates you put in. The vest shell is covered front and back with MOLLE-like webbing loops to attach pouches, and like MOLLE it comes pre-packaged in kits for various roles. Rife, Grenadier, LMG, ect. This back shot: [img]http://www.isayeret.com/photos/sf-209.jpg[/img] shows the webbing loops and how the patrol pack and buttpack attach to the vest itself. There is no picture yet on [url]isayaret.com[/url] of the ruck. They cost about $1000 US each in one configuration with a single class III ceramic plate for the front. Has anyone heard/seen of these being sold in the US? If so by whom?

Are there any opinions on the Blackhawk Industries tactical vest? I would like to here comments good or bad, before I purchase one.

For the same money you could buy an Eagle or a Tactical Tailor. My opinion is worth very little but IMHO they are both much better. WWW.TacticalTailor.Com WWW.Eagleindustries.Com

Ever check out FMCO I have one of their vests and I like it. I have not used it in the field yet but it seems to be high quality and I like the design and it is priced right. http://fmco.hypermart.net/
