Picture of inner tag. Earliest picture I have seen of these being worn was by US 82nd Airborne soldiers on exercise in Honduras. The soldiers seen wearing these were on dirt bikes.

US Army Special Forces Direct Action Trauma Armor. This doesn't have the armor nor does it have the soft armor for the inside. This piece is unmarked but has a size M in the neck area.

 

The attachment is for a large frame automatic with a laser sight on it. What model pistol it is, I can't remember at this time.

This is one of my favorite pieces in my collection. This is an American Body Armor (ABA) Load Bearing Vest from 1984. This were used by the Special Forces community in Desert Storm. I have one picture in a book that shows a USSF soldier wearing modified 6-Color Desert jacket and this vest in front of the Kuwaiti Embassy circa 1991. You do not see these very often.

This stays on my mannequin all the time. This is a Personal Ballistic Protective Vest (PBPV) that is dated 1996. Various velcro pouches could have been added to this vest and could be fitted for different mission requirements.

Unknown US vest. Came out of a DRMO sale in Virginia. Not 100% sure who it would have been used by. Someone had mentioned SEAL's. Personally, it looks more like a pilot's survival vest to me. Any help on this one would be great.
