A lightweight yet ruggedly built nylon mesh vest designed to provide
stowage for survival equipment items. Contains 5 pockets
constructed of a heavy duty 1050 denier ballistics nylon. The 2 main pockets measure 5½" x 4½" x
1½" and are located on each side of the vest for best weight
distribution (a portion of the load is transferred to the shoulders)
of heavy/bulky items, such as flares, signal mirrors, dye markers,
etc. The front of the vest has a knife pocket (see #358),
a strobe light pocket and a utility pocket measuring 3¾" x
5¾" x 1". Vest is complete with USCG Emblem, Ensign
and Stenciled back.
adjustors, zippers and snaps are all high strength plastic for
corrosion resistance. Vest can be adjusted to fit in a few
seconds by simply pulling forward on the adjustment straps. Retroreflective material is sewn to the front and
back of the vest for high visibility both day and night. Vest size can be quickly identified by the pull
tab (Black for Regular and White for Large) on the knife
pocket. Available in black by Special Order only; call
