Safariland is a well-respected choice among law enforcement, military personnel, and in recent years, a whole lot of kitted civilians (based). They're mainly known for two things: the best platform-specific holsters on the market, and their pedigree for great quality body armor.

This vest in particular holds BALCS armor inserts (not included, but available in many places both new and used) and sits very close & snug to the user's body. Everything down to the elastic cummerbund's hook & loop attachment is extremely low profile and allows for easy concealment when necessary.

On the interior of the carrier is a comfortable jersey-type mesh  where the plate inserts can be revealed, and the exterior features a durable ripstop fabric that will hold up to abrasions from covert or overt use alike.

The whole system is easy to disassemble & resize to your needs, and is also machine washable for easy maintenance. With proper upkeep, it'll last longer than several armor insert's lifetimes, or just long enough to probably save your life — either way it's well worth it.
