If you are looking for a load-bearing vest designed for special operations and tactical situations, look no farther. In partnership with Kyle Lamb, 5.11 Tactical Series has produced the ultimate load-bearing platform. The LBE Vest is made from a stiffened mesh that provides the necessary structure for all your gear, yet allows air in for ventilation and breathability. The LBE Vest has our hidden document pockets and is fully compatible with our VTAC Slickstick™ pouches or standard molle gear. A grab handle is located on the interior of the vest, not visible to an outsider, but there if you need it. A hydration pocket is also located on the interior of the back of the vest. The LBE Vest is adjustable in girth and length and is available in Regular and 2XL+ sizes. We use only quality YKK® zippers and high quality high impact plastic clips.
You can use any number of our Slickstick™ accessories to customize your LBE Vest for any situation. The 5.11 Slickstick™ accessories are compatible with standard molle attachment systems, yet functions like none other. The Slickstick™ slides through a UV-resistant ring making it easier to arrange and attach your pouches and other gear. Slickstick attaches like a normal molle attachment, but it slides to make it easier. To remove an item, just pop the snap and pull the stick out. The design combination of our LBE and our Slickstick™ accessories give you an unlimited variety of configurations.
As always, 5.11 Tactical Series continues to provide innovative products at exceptional prices to give operators the tools they need for their difficult duties.
