The ultimate tactical platform, designed by experienced special forces operator Kyle Lamb.
The VTAC Load Bearing Equipment Vest is made from a stiffened mesh that provides the necessary structure for all your gear, yet allows air in for ventilation and comfort. Grippy rubberized material covering the MOLLE loops on the upper chest provide a tough, non-slip surface for your rifle butt. VELCRO® brand loop material on the upper back and left chest lets you attach or remove ID panels in seconds.
Two, full-length inside front vest pockets with hidden VELCRO® brand closures are designed like the hidden document pockets in 5.11's popular BBS Tactical Gear. The back of the vest is one large inner pocket with a VELCRO® brand loop at the top to hold a hydration reservoir and keep its hose securely in place. These interior pockets are all mesh, just like the vest, for maximum breathability.
The VTAC LBE Vest is fully compatible with VTAC pouches and standard MOLLE gear. A grab handle on the side back of the vest is not visible to an outsider, but there if needed, as an emergancy drag, or a "locker loop" sturdy enough to support a fully loaded vest.
Large, heavy duty VELCRO® brand panels with redundant buckled straps on the shoulders and sides let you to adjust the vest in every dimension for a perfect fit. Polymer D-Ring loops at the bottom of the vest allow easy attachment to your VTAC LBE Belt or Duty Belt. Imported.
Available Sizes: Regular & 2XL Available Colors: Black & Flat Dark Earth
5.11 Tactical has joined forces with Kyle E. Lamb and Viking Tactics.After serving his country for 21 years, 17 of which were in the most elite elements of the U.S. Army Special Operations Command, SMG Lamb is now one of the most sought-after shooting and tactics instructors in the country, the owner of Viking Tactics, Inc,. (VTAC™ ), and the inventor of the acclaimed Viking Tactics Sling.
5.11 SLICKSTICK™ SYSTEM—MOLLE made better. 5.11 has collaborated with Kyle Lamb and Viking Tactics to develop a proprietary line of what we feel is the most functional, and most complete system of web gear available. This innovative system of load-bearing equipment, rifle cases, backpacks, and a wide range of pouches, cases, and carriers is designed to make it easier than ever to carry and customize your tactical gear. All 5.11 VTAC gear is fully MOLLE compatible—but 5.11’s patent-pending SlickStick™ System makes it far easier to attach, detach, and simply move pouches and gear around.
The 5.11 Slickstick™ is compatible with standard MOLLE attachment systems, yet makes it much easier to attach, remove, and arrange your pouches and gear. Instead of the sewn-on soft nylon webbing that must be painstakingly woven through the loops on both pieces of gear, the Slickstick System offers a far more convenient alternative. The semi-rigid, reinforced nylon Slickstick, which slides through a polymer D-ring at the top of the VTAC pouch, is far easier to weave—or simply slide—through the loops. Snap it closed, just like a MOLLE strap, and your VTAC pouch is secure. Removing a pouch is as easy as popping the snaps and pulling the Slicksticks out.
