First Strike: The Original 22 Pocket Concealment Vest - Black
It's a fact most handgun encounters occur at 20 feet or less. At such close range speed becomes a major factor. The Original Concealment Vest is designed to maximize draw speed, allowing instant access to the concealed carry pocket constructed of a durable snag free Cordura material. Elastic inside the concealed carry vest holster holds your weapon at the ready and a metal snap tab prevents the CCW vest pocket from opening accidentally. Of course we don't want you running out of ammo. Clever side pockets house up to six additional magazines with special Velcro tabbed areas for bullet storage. 22 pockets in total make finding a safe place for your car keys, cell phone, knife, pens and other important items fast and easy. Our CCW vest is the perfect blend of style, comfort, and usability designed around split second combat readiness for maximum personal protection. When placing your order, please follow our sizing chart in the description. 80% Polyester, 20% Cotton. When placing your order, please order one size bigger then you normally wear as the vest sizing runs small. If you are 5ft 5" to 5ft 9" and you weigh between 150-175, we recommend you order a size Medium. If you are 5ft 10" to 6ft and you weigh between 175-190, we recommend you order a size Large. If you are 6ft to 6ft 2" and you weigh between 190-210, we recommend you order a size X-Large. If you are 5ft 10" to 6ft 5" and you weigh between 200-220, we recommend you order a size 2X-Large. If you are 5ft 10" to 6ft 5" and you weigh between 230-245, we recommend you order a size 3X-Large. If you are 5ft 10" to 6ft 5" and you weigh between 250-265, we recommend you order a size 4X-Large. If you are 5ft 10" to 6ft 5" and you weigh between 275-290, we recommend you order a size 5X-Large. If you are 5ft 10" to 6ft 5" and you weigh between 300-320, we recommend you order a size 6X-Large.

Just received my Bluestone Concealment Vest after only two days! Nice looking and it fits great. I'm normally a 2XL but I went to the OpticsPlanet Web site for a complete sizing chart for this vest. Take careful chest measurements and order accordingly. I needed a 4X in this vest and it fits perfect. Able to carry my Ruger SR1911 CMDR, or my .40 cal. M&P Shield. No "printing" in the garment so whatever you carry, it's not visible. Also has elastic holders for mags or speed loaders. Looks like a great vest to put some NRA and military patches on! Truly believe I got my money's worth with this vest. One note of caution...it'll probably fade if it gets wet or damp from sweat...so don't wear a light colored shirt under it. Dry clean only too! I got the black one, came with American Flag sewn on front pocket. Hoo-ra....God Bless America....

I am a firearms target shooter and a certified instructor. This vest is great for the cooler weather at the range. It helps keep me warm, holds all my "stuff", and allows me to "carry" discreetly up to a PX4 Storm compact. Besides the utility I also like looking like an instructor to separate me from everyone else at the range.

I receive lots of comments about the "nice vest." I'll be ordering more soon!

You must consult their sizing chart to get the size right. Otherwise, would recommend and purchase again without hesitation. Well made at a fair price.

I would prefer if it didn't have so many zipper pulls dangling around, but it's a good heavily built CCW vest.

It is made of a durable material, fits good, the built in holster needs more refinement the hand guns just flops around in the pocket/holster area.

Better than the guide gear concealment vest.

The vest fits well, carries my XDS comfortably and with two magazines on opposite side balances very well.
The zipper is a little light.

I love this. I usually wear XL shirts, but it van vary by make. For example, I wear XXL Land's End shirts. I read the other reviews and this medium fits. The quality of the zippers and pockets is awesome. Holds flashlights, paperwork, firearms, and keys securely.

"I have been a police officer in Gary, Indiana for 12 years. Bluestone Safety formally know as Nate's, has supplied me with highest quality outer vest carries for my career. The first outer vest carrier lasted in the outdoor work environment for 5 years before it needed to be replaced. They promised me that the vest would be completed in a few days. I received a call the next day advising me that they were finished with my order. That was one day faster than they predicted. The vest fits great along with all of my equipment inside. Overall, I am very satisfied with Bluestone Safety. I recommend Bluestone Safety to all Law Enforcement Agencies."
