Possible vest source - $19.95 tactical vest
« on: Feb 20, 2010, 11:43 AM »

This tactical vest has a zipper front that would need to be covered up but I know other people have used front close vest with success.  The price makes it worth exploring I think.

Not for me but perhaps for someone else.

Did anyone buy any of these vests? What did you do with all the extra d-rings and other pieces of fabric such as the handles on the shoulders? Im findind that getting a vest is one of the harder parts of making my kit.

Any multi-kit member can tell you that the soft parts can be the hardest part of the kit.
Look around at some Mandos for ideas. Some use the extra rings to hang chains, braids, or sashes. Others use them for hanging skulls, holsters, or grenades. Others yet just take them off entirely. Decide what your Mando would do and go for it!

I got it, no pics right now but I took almost everything off, the D-rings, clips and the zipper then had my mom sew the front parts together, it's actually really nice if you modify it properly.

Thanks for the link but they don't have it in black currently  :'(   Can anyone tell me if the material is easy to dye?

If they list the fabric type on the site, I didn't see it. But I suspect it's probably a nylon or something similar, which means no, it's a pain in the shebs to dye. There are dyes out there for synthetic fabrics, but I'm not sure how effective they actually are.

They don't list it but I have two Mol-E vest that I've had since the Gulf War and it looks to be the same material.  Those vest have been sitting in a five gallon bucket of black RIT dye for about two weeks and came out great.  Just wondering if its the same material because if so then I'll have no problem dying it black.

lol. Well, if you leave it in for THAT long then yeah, it might work. Has the dye held up alright to being washed?
