The Recce Vest was designed as a lightweight vest with large pocket capacity to be folded up in you pocket or pack. When you drop your pack, you can pull out the vest and key items for your reconnaissance such as optics, radios or GPS. These items fill the vest so you can move stealthily with your load carried in a high position on your chest and not in the way of your gun belt. While this is ideal for recon and sniper applications, it is well suited for SERE, narcotics eradication, motor bike use, and numerous other uses. This was based on a lightweight vest used by British special operations in the 1970s and 1980s, and those original vests have become sought after items. This vest has some improvements over the UK models with flap or shock cord retention on the two smaller front pouches - you can engage the flap, or fold it away to use just the shock cord. We also added a cinchable storm hood to the back pack for retention. The vest is made of 500 denier Cordura for lightweight durability.Key Features
