    Eagle Tac Vest

    Post by Geardoshit on Fri Jul 15, 2011 7:47 pm

    I recently got this vest for cheap. I don`t have any information about it really.

    Does anybody know the exact product version/ number/ name of it and perhaps has some more infos about it?
    (e.g. date of manufacturing/ perhaps a time frame where this vest might have seen action).

    If anybody does have an "in action/ in use" picture would be great! Very Happy

    Thank you very much!

    its not PRE-MOLLE by the way. the coloring is Coyote and I do NOT recall seeing Coyote brown or tan being offered before MOLLE in 1998; but I do recall KHAKI being around by then. your vest looks to be the "Closed Back" design version of Eagle Industries' Tac Vest V3-Detachable; it is compatible with their Sniper Vest Tac-SVD series; earliest I can find for the date of manufacture/series is 2002 or so...BUT they're black..I would think 2004 or so would be right era of manufacture for this specific vest; also; I have my doubts about it being military used; simply because it is not MOLLE; and does not provide a place to put armor like say, a Plate Carrier...JKIN will know more for sure I think...if he hasn't already PM'd you. Smile several websits shows the black earlier version with open back for sale; I see one says that it is available with the closed back design like the V1-N version which is the current production version with no detachable panels; they still sell the detachable panels for this particular vest. the design of the panels reminds me of the older late 80s early 90s SWAT vests and this leads me to think this vest was likely a police vest.

    Some companies made tan and khaki gear back in the day, but generally stuff in that color is slightly more rare. I dont know the exactly model name of this vest, but Ive seen this specific version around before. I dont think this is a Police vest, because back when they used tactical vests they would almost exclusively use them in black.

    Me, too! But only in "for sale" threads or similar.
    I think it`ll be hard seeing that exact vest in "reference pictures".
