Green PASGT flak jacket - NOT camouflaged ?
Posted 04 September 2011 - 02:19 PM
Did anybody here already saw a non camouflaged PASGT flak vest / flak jacket / fragmentation vest ? I just see this one today :
Sorry for poor pictures, they come from Internet. So this is the PASGT Vest for sure, the exact same one. Except this one is not a camouflaged woodland vest but well a green unicolor. The NSN : 8470-01-092-8499 has the "01" that means it's an US military item (00 and 01 on NATO codes are designation for US military items). I never saw this before. Sadly, the contract number and manufacturer were hidded.
What's your opinions on this ?
Thanks in advance for your response,

A friend and I listened some body armor from various countries, but we have no information about a green PASGT Vest.
Here's for the various countries :
Here's the Canadian body armor we listed :
So at this time, the first hypothesis it's a Canadian vest. Can someone confirm it ? Any other idea is welcome. There's no wrong opinion, I just want to clear it. Maybe someone here has pictures that show the use of these green PASGT vest (?)... I hope so ! :thumbsup:

Here're more pictures of the naval flak vest for comparison :
You've right, they look very similar, but the naval flak vest is not PASGT. The color is also slightly different, because the NFV is more grey-green.
The PASGT vest I ask for ID is another model. It's a real pasgt vest, but full green. But thanks for your help in this identification ! Hope we'll resolve this identification !

Here is a picture of the Canadian flak jacket in use by a Canadian UN Peacekeeper. Definitely not the same vest.

the other day i found 2 choc & chip PASGT vest covers, so is that why some of them are camo?
The Chocolate Chip covers are to govern the Woodland Camo PASGT vests

@ msgt norway : the label in itself is exactly the same one we can see on every other camouflaged PASGT Vest, so we won't learn something with the label I think, except it's well an US made body armor and that it was probably used by the US forces. The contract number and NSN shown are not specific to the green one.
That simply the first time I see one in full green...that's realy curious. I found absolutely no other picture that show one unicolor like the one I bought and I never heard they were done in this full green color (in a report or internet).
