The French Foreign Legion Assault Vest is a load bearing vest designed for the elite Foreign Legion. These soldiers are often the first troops sent into dangerous spots around the world, both in and out of former French territories. The equipment used by these elite fighters needs to be the very best in the world, and these flak vests excel on and off the battlefield for a number of reasons. With the Foreign Legion being legendary around the world, these combat proven flak vests come with the history and prestige of the soldiers who they were initially assigned to.
Where these flak vests excel the most is their modular design. You can remove almost all of the auxiliary armor pockets should they not be required for your individual use. That includes the groin pocket and neck protector, which may not be necessary for you. The pockets where the armor would have been are standard sized, allowing you to fit this flak vest with your own armor plates. Integrated with the flak vest is a pistol combat belt which comes with two pouches, you can easily carry things like extra magazines or other essential gear right on your flak vest.

The modular pouch design of the vest allows for lots of storage for goodies in nylon lined pockets. The two included FAMAS pouches each hold three G.I. issue 20 round AR mags nicely. In the age of ballistic nylon the cotton poly blended construction is a bit "old fashioned", but this is still a really nice rig. Hope the ballistic inserts become available!
Kudos to Keepshooting for sorting these by size. Bottom line, if I don't know what size a vendor is selling...I'm not buying! (Posted on 6/18/2014)
