First Strike: The Original 22 Pocket Concealment Vest - Tan
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.

Driving for a living where concealment is a must, this is a great product (revolver or semiauto) and is ambi for those lefties. Has room for spare mags plus more secure pockets to clear out all your pants pockets and more.

The vest has a tendency to slant towards it's heavier side. Care should be taken to balance it by what is distributed throughout it's pockets.

This is the best concealment vest on the market !!! Very well made, but runs small in sizes. Love them. I have one of each color.

Fits large, comfortable, great quality

A well made vest. I normally wear a large in shirts and a large vest seems to fit me the best. One thing to remember, you might wish to order a bit larger to allow room for a firearm. It's about the right size but does have a slight bulge where a firearm is concealed. Oh, the zipper issue seems to be they're sewn such that it's sometimes hard to get the zipper started. Not really an issue for me since I love everything else about it. The 5.11 equivalent i simply too long for me and this one is slightly above pocket level.

Works well and fits. Conceals well, even for 1911. Vest is on the heavy side, which I guess should be expected, since I wanted something that would last, I tend to wear the lighter ones out. It probably will be on the warm side this summer.

Very nice vest, seems well made. I like it a lot.

Fit a bit loose. I'm slightly larger than a LARGE (5-9, 170#), I have a 42 inch chest, so I ordered an XL to be on the safe side. When it arrived I found it a bit loose, which is what I prefer so I can wear thicker garments under it when I want. Also, I like the adjustment straps at the waist-sides which tucked it nicely for me. I read the previous reviews about sizing that stated these vests were on the small side. However, if you wear XL shirts, then order the XL. The larger cuts may be different. Lots of pocket room for two pistols and spare magazines (all concealed). Not sure what I'd carry in the outside pockets or clip to the lapel rings.

Very heavy canvas material that is extremely sturdy, and a well made product that fits me well. Great for shooting, fishing, or just hiking and camping outdoors.

"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."
