As noted, the Russian assault vest is an authentic paramilitary load bearing vest that is known to the Otryad Mobilniy Osobogo Naznacheniya (OMON), Russian for "Special Purpose Mobile Unit," as the M22 assault vest.

The Russian assault vest is an adjustable load bearing vest that is constructed from a polyester blend and offers a wealth of possible storage configurations along with a unique Russian camouflage pattern – more on that later. As noted, the front of the vest is lined with fifteen different storage compartments, though not quite as many actual pockets. For the sake of keeping this as brief as possible, I will only describe the front of one side of the vest as both sides are identical save a chest pocket on the left side. The largest pocket, which is secured via both snap fasteners and plastic buckles, opens to reveal four cells that are capable of holding one 30-round AR-15 magazine each for a total of four magazines and 120 rounds (240 rounds when both sides are considered). This compartment is located adjacent two small snap-fastened pockets and above a large Velcro® pocket. On the back of the vest, you will find three spacious pouches above the hips that are also secured via snap fasteners. The vest also features a full-length zipper and adjustable canvas straps on its sides.

Great Vest

This is a really nice vest. What the pictures don't show, is that on the sides of the vest there are adjustable straps to take in or let out the sides for a better fit. The front has a zipper and three snaps. On the right shoulder there is a padded area for when you have your rifle shouldered. This pad is thin but will help hold your rifle stock in place and offer some cushion for recoil. The smaller pouches below the magazine pouch have 4 elastic loops sewn on the inside of the pouch. The only down side to this vest, is it will only hold 2 AK-47 magazines in each chest pouch while actually being able to snap the outer most button and strap to close the pouch flap. This was probably made for the 5.45X39, and would also work well with 5.56x45 magazines. You can fit 4 AK magazines per pouch, but you will not be able to close the flap completely over the magazines. Review by Lock N Load (Posted on 4/8/2014)

I am Boris Ivanovich, please to forgive my not so good English. I buy assault vest for to send to brother, Dimitry Ivanovich, in St Petersburg. So that he can carry much equipment for fight Chechens. Boris Ivanovich did not have such vest when was with Soviet Army for fight Afghans in 1983. Only had "bra" what US of Americans call chest rig. Assault vest very nice, has pattern like uniforms of paratroopers in my time. Many pockets for bullets, grenades, and water bottle. Again, Please to forgive my English. Thank you very many!
