Here is the newest addition to the collection. This is a Tactical Entry Vest (TEV) made by International Armor Corporation and is their standard close quarter combat vest.

 

This particular vest was used by a gentleman in the USAF and came out of the Virginia Beach area.

Last picture of this vest. Something a little unusual about the hard armor pocket flaps, both the front and back pocket flaps have had long strips of duct tape on them at one time. This was a common practice by SF types back in the day. Normally had a blood type or possibly a name penned on the tape with a Sharpie pen.

Early to mid 1990's Eagle Industries tactical vest (Tac V-N) with older metal hook fasteners on the magazine pockets. The color of this vest is olive green.

Attached to the bottom of the vest is a US belt with two M16 magazine pouches (three magazines per pouch), two 1 quart canteens, an older cloth buttpack (M-56 vinatage), and two first aid/compass pouches on the right and left side of the front of the belt. Paracord is used on the front of the belt as an extender.

This vest would have been used by individuals in the Special Forces

I just received this RBR Flex 35 with a manufacture date of September 2004. This one has been used and that is one of the reasons why I bought it. I had been on the hunt for one of these for several years now, but they are a rather obscure piece of gear and aren't too often encountered.

 

These were used by the USAF Security Forces in Iraq.
