Vest, Chestover, DPM, SASS, Modified, Used £69.00

'Chestover' operations vest from legendary and renowned Special Air Sea Services (SASS) of Lancaster, and modified by the previous user

SASS closed several years ago, and this design was discontinued more than 16 years ago, one of these was recently offered for sale at over £200.

Designed as a cross between a chest rig and vest, this combines the benefits of both designs.

UK made in military specification materials.

From left to right as viewed:

1 x utility pouch, Velcro closure, large enough for UK issue 2 pint bottle & cup

4 x ammunition pouch, 3x 30 round 5.56mm or 2 x AK magazine capacity each.

Ammo pouches close with Velcro, with adjustable strap and press studs on each, Velcro silence strips are included.

Velcro & elastic FFD cage on upper left as worn, sized for 20x19 size as shown, helmet clip on length adjustable strap below this.

Full 1000 denier Cordura type front in British DPM, Velcro closure with 2x buckle and adjustable strap closures.

Wide, padded shoulders, mesh back with multiple size adjustment straps.

Internal pockets for padding, both front sides and back, only back pocket has padding present. Replacement pads can be easily made from a roll mat.

Excellent near new condition, this has hardly been used, some minor modifications by the previous user, name and number written in, but out of obvious sight.

Various views shown, contents for illustration only, single empty vest supplied.
