     Afghan Police body armor. Vest does have the groin armor, but that isn't shown in the pictures.

    Cool find, I was curious when these would start making rounds in the collector markets. Was this the one that was listed on ebay for a while?

     Thanks for the comment.  The seller misidentified this piece and I think that is why it went unnoticed.

    Since it is made by Vest Guard in the UK, the quality is very good. NOTHING like the Afghan made pieces.

    Did any armor inserts come with this vest? If so, what are the rated ballistic protection levels?
