I picked this one up dirt cheap and am still scratching my head. The body is a tan Blackhawk DOAV vest with undated ITW Nexus buckles. The magazine pouches appear to be the kind that are sewn to the Blackhawk Omega vests. Somewhere along the line, the owner switched out the original DOAV magazine pouches and replaced them with these.

 

As you can see, a pistol magazine has been removed from both the left and right chest area. Furthermore, all the belt loops have been cut off. The right side large pocket of the DOAV has been removed as well.

 

NOW.....the vest has had several pieces of fabric sewn on to the right/left shoulder and the back area. Not sure what they are for and definitely has been added. These pieces MAY have been added later, as the vest itself has been used. Vest is dirty, sandy, and has the black marks on the inside of the magazine pouches associated with loaded magaizne rub. Seen it many times on the inside of other used magazine pouches and rigs.

 

I am not exactly sure who this would have been worn by, but some possiblities that have been offered are CCT, TACP, or contractor.
