    Which Vest

    I was just brought on by the local police department as a reserve officer. Obviously as a reserve I am last to get the good equipment and as such it was suggested that I purchase my own vest as the one I'll get will be one of the more uncomfortable ones.

    So I'm looking for suggestions on a good concealable vest. I would rather pay more for a good once since my life may rest on it some day and I want one that I'll be more comfortable in and can keep and use for many years.

    Like this? - Galls® LFlex Level IIIA Body Armor - BP427 : Galls

    Oh and I was told on another forum to get the protection level IIIA. Is this something you guys/gals agree with?


    Here's the exact vest the other forum told me I should go with. What's your opinions on it? ABA Extreme HP Ballistic Vest IIIA

    Let's keep the opinions on vests levels to PMs guys. We are not in the business of educating our potential clientele here. I know it is easy to find else where, but it won't be found here.

    It's like you read my mind.


    I would suggest checking out reputable manufacturer's. See if they have any customer reviews online.

    That, or I'm sure many members here would be more than willing to PM you information on purchasing a quality vest.

    The views, opinions, stupid off the cuff comments, mouthy, obnoxious, thoughtless, etc etc etc are not always or even some of the time the belief of my department, so bugger off!
