I needed a tactical garment when in plainclothes, so when I had the chance to purchase a new Blackhawk Omega vest(30VT26) at half retail price, I jumped on it! In my rifle case I carry a small ground pad (life saver for long periods in kneeling position) and a poncho. One thirty round mag in the AR and a 2nd on the stock (there's a 3rd mag in the case). What would you carry in the vest??? There are; three pistol clip pockets(upper left chest), one large utility pocket(upper right chest), three dual mag pockets(lower right), and the cross draw holster on left side. BTW I'd still be wearing the bat-belt with Glock, extra mags, cuffs, radio, etc.

Better to have it and not need it than need it and not have it. I have the TacV1 vest which is similar but 3 more long gun mag pouches instead of the cross draw holster. Here is what I have in it. 4 M16 30 rd mags ( vest can hold up to 12 ) 2 M16 20 rd mags ( prone shooting) 3 extra handgun mags 100 oz Camelback ( empty ) in back pouch easily filled if needed from a cooler I keep in car FLex cuffs looped through the cloth loops in back Upper utility pouch contains; Leatherman tool Sure Fire 6P Extra batteries for weapon light and 6P Spare battery for Aimpoint M2 Flex cuff cutter Cuff key on lanyard ( shoestring) Granola bar
