British Army genuine issue 'General Ops' assault vest in DPM. This vest has an excellent carrying capacity and comfort value and is a highly popular solution for load carrying. The vest is constructed on a nylon mesh base, with adjustment over both left and right shoulders, and lower back. The vest has four large utility pockets, each with internal, integrated stuff or compression sack, two smaller utility pockets on left and right chest, and two ammunition pouches holding three SA80/M16 magazines in each. The vest also has large zip-up dump pockets left and right, each with an internal pocket for better organisation of the internal carrying capacity. The vest is buckled in the front with three fastex clips spread well along the front for excellent stability. Rear of vest has carrying handle on the outside. The internal portion of the lower back of the vest is fitted with a double mesh layer which opens with velcro into a pocket in which padding can be added to relieve pressure on the lower back without using a separate hip pad. Vest does not have attachments on the rear for day packs. The vest is made of IRR treated texturised Cordura.
