French Military Flak Vest

The French Military Flak Vest is an authentic surplus flak vest carrier from the French Army. These vests were designed to be used as replacements for existing flak vests, where through use in the field the carrier would need to be replaced. This would be done by removing the armor panels and plates from a soldiers existing flak vest and inserting them into one of these new carrier flak vests.

Review by Sparky87
First, this vest arrived in EXCELLENT condition. I would have to say brand new or verrrry close. None of the usual surplus smells, stains, wear & tear, etc. Might be great for airsoft player or cosplay, but not as plate carrier.

This is not a quick-donning item. The sides use buckles to close and the neck will interfere with glasses while slipping it on.

As the description is slightly misleading. There are not "pockets" for armor *plate* but one pocket that will just fit an 11"x14" shooter cut steel plate. The other pocket is big, honking space on both sides of the vest where the soft flak armor would go. There is a zipper than runs the entire perimeter of the inside of the vest (both sides). The lack of a rear plate pocket makes the vest sag in front so much, a plate ends up protecting your stomach more than your CNS/heart/lungs due to the lack of a counterweighting plate in the back.
