Review of the Best Tactical Vests in 2018

Equipping military troops and other security forces with tactical vests may be due to various reasons. For example, a soldier operating on the ground may need a tactical vest as protection to his/her vital organs. These tactical vests are important because within them, they carry body amour such as steel plates and hold them in place to prevent them from moving around too much as the soldier moves. The steel plates are used to stop enemy rounds from penetrating through the vest and entering the body.

The operator of the vest also highly benefits from the spread loading magazine and tools on the vest. Modern day vests are built in kryptek patterns to help blending in deserts and vegetation.

It was during the Vietnam War that these tactical vests first came into light under the name Load Bearing Vests (LBVs). They were extensively used because they were much cooler than the flak jackets that the soldiers were required to wear. In the current world, the material used to make the tactical vests is mostly synthetic. This is to ensure that the tactical vests deal well with the harsh environment that it will be exposed to. Nylon, combined with the multiple stitching patterns, makes the vest as effective as can be in holding in place the gear that was supposed to be on the back. Nylon is mostly used because it is sturdy and very dependable.

To protect the operator from sideways directional fire, the vest is equipped with side plates. Since the vest is modular, the operator can customize it to meet his or her expectations in terms of placement of the pouches. Some people like their pouches close to their non dominant shooting hand, while others prefer all the pouches up front.

A tactical vest must have the following features for it to betermed as a good tactical vest:
• Side plates cumber bud 
• Camouflage for the user's environment
• Quick release clips
• Hydration compatibility
• Molle webbing
• Accessibility of plate carriers
• Magazine pouches.

Now to go to the main part; what are the best types of tactical vests for 2018? Well, here are some of the very best:


Condor MCR5: Recon Chest Rig
This tactical vest has its price completely justified with its very good and comfortable design. It is the perfect tactical vest for those people who do not need the body amour and use it for exercises such as hiking, training, or other competitions.

Its design has a capacity of six pistol mags and six rifle mags. While this type of tactical vest is not modular because it comes with the pouches permanently sewn on it, its default set up is very practical, giving the operator the option to add more kit to the rig whenever need arises... read more.

Blackwater Gear Low Profile 4 Rifle & Pistol Mag Tactical Carbine Chest Rig
This chest rig was built with the goal "low profile" in mind. While it may sound unimpressive to be just plain low profile, this bad boy has a couple of virtues that you ought to know before brushing away the idea of purchasing it.

Saying it is low profile means that it can be worn under the shirt or over body amour, without interfering with the operations of the user. This makes it automatically light weight, with features that promote its lightness. It only has four magazine pouches and a big pocket with Velcro... read more.

5.11 Tactical VTAC LBE Tactical Vest
With a very good reputation in the military and law enforcement agencies, this tactical vest has a very great construction and design that allows the user the best use of the MOLLE system. To attach plenty of gear without discomfort, it has its Pouch Attachment Ladder System (PALS) spaced well. This spacing also allows air flow and makes the vest ideal for warm environments.

The high quality construction of this vest is shown in its YKK zippers and the double and/or triple stitching, making it not only durable but also very comfortable. It allows the user to move alot easily without having to worry about it staying in place... read more.

Disruptive Environments Chest RigD3CR
This low profile rig is designed by Travis Haley, a former recon marine whose tactical gear always seems to be the favorite for most.

This tactical vest does not promise anything less that the best service. In addition to it being low profile it is designed to give the user freedom to attach it to other plate carriers and accessories. It comes in various colors such as black, coyote brown, or ranger green... read more

Blackhawk S.T.R.I.K.E. Elite Vest
This tactical vest is built in a barrel shape. It is a very good tactical vest, but it has one very major downside; it does not come in different sizes. This means that it is only targeted to people of a certain build. If it feats you well, then you are in luck because of its endless options on the side of modularity. 

The density of the vest does not allow the flexibility seen in the other vests, but that is covered by its good design that allows the attachment of other gear on it. Another downside to it is that it is not amour compatible... read more


US Palm Ronin Tactical Vest
If you are into seriously heavy duty tactical vests that can be customized to meet various body configurations, then this is the tactical vest for you. With comfortable shoulder pads and mesh lining, this vest is designed to keep you comfortable and cool, while allowing as much movement as possible.

It also has a PALS webbing that allows the user to customize it completely because of its highly customizable MOLLE attachment ability... read more

Conclusion 
Take your time while shopping for the tactical vests to prevent disappointments and let downs. Taking care of the tactical vests is also important as it would be very frustrating to dress up in your vest and gearing up, only to start losing important gear!
