    AWS vest. One in black just sold on eBay less than a month ago. It's an older model, their chest rig was based on the same design.

    This vest looks like a customized version of the SF -Special Force- model and they were produced by the AWS company in the mid-90's. No tags or label in. I have seen one very similar a few years ago with front zipper, split vest type. IMHO I would say that this vest has been customized in AWS workshop at the request of the operator or a unit. Most of these tactical vests come from Special Forces and Delta/CAG operators. This is mine:

    Thanks for the info. What was throwing me off is this thing is so modified its hard to ID. Did AWS have a model with a holster and frag pouch as this one has?

    I know not. Is the first time I see one like yours and this makes me think that either is a customization of SF or a rare model which has made ​​very few units.

    Vest that appears in the first pics looks like yours. The rest of pics are just the standard model.
