    A possible source of Iraqi body armor

    Post by Cap Camouflage Pattern I on Sun Nov 06, 2016 9:02 pm

    So I've noticed this style of body armor is common with Iraqi soldiers, of course I'm having a hard time finding photos now Neutral




    but while searching ebay I found one that looks similar.
    http://www.ebay.com/itm/IIIA-Concealable-Body-Armor-Carrier-Bullet-Proof-Vest-Kevlar-Inserts-Inc-/172400684492?hash=item2823e1adcc:g:sLEAAOSwnbZYH6rs


    The seller says the carrier is made by First Choice armor, and the inserts by Second Chance.

    What do you guys think?

    I realised last night that what I typed might not have been clear. Let me clarify, I don't mean that the seller on ebay might be a source of Iraqi body armor for collectors, I mean First Choice Armor might be a supplier of body armor to the iraqi army.

    In answer to your question, the maker in question did provide armor to the Iraqi Armed Forces or at least that is what I have been told.

    Cap,
     I think there are only a handful of us who care about Iraqi gear here. Very Happy How many versions of the First Choice armor have you seen?  

     I have have personally seen the whitish version like the one in this thread, a 6 color version, and a blue version.  Thoughts?
