These are the earlier version of the load bearing vests that were used in the US Military. Instead of a mesh base for the vest, it is a solid fabric base. The mag pouches are also vertically oriented instead of angled as in the enhanced version.
All the pouches on the vest are sewn in and not removable. There are 4 double magazine pouches with a button snap closure. On the waist there are two hand grenade pouches. The vest is easily adjustable to height and waist fitment. The vest has two buckle for securing it on to the wearer. On the back are points for attaching additional ALICE web gear. These are sturdy, easily worn vests that give the user a go to basic load out.
