The US Military Enhanced Tactical Load Bearing Vest is an integral part of the Individual Integrated Fighting System. This vest marked the time that the US military issued a load bearing vest which quickly became the new standard for modern fighting forces. With this vest integrating pockets for carrying six 30-round magazines and two fragmentation grenades soldiers immediately recognized the high performance design when compared to the ALICE system that this fighting system replaced.
This tactical vest is the enhanced version which is considered to be the second generation of the original design. This enhanced vest features mesh backing which provided better cooling support for soldiers when wearing this vest in hot climates. The fully adjustable for size aspects of this vest also gave soldiers the ability to wear their combat gear as tight to their body as they needed or to wear it loose when conditions warranted it.
