Lightweight Concealed Carry Vest
Ratings & Reviews
Almost a perfect vest...almost...
Vest is great, I use it both to conceal within the vest, and I wear it when I am carrying IWB. This vest is as described for comfort and fashion. I have worn it over t-shirts, golf polos, and even long sleeve dress shirts. It goes well with everything.
Here is the main and only reason that i can only give it 4 stars, not give it 5 stars,
The two inside concealment pockets are large pockets, HOWEVER, there are no zipper pulls on these two most important pockets on the vest! There are zipper pulls on the front outside chest pocket, and the side hand pockets, but none here?! This does not make any sense to me to provide a vest with inside concealment pockets, that you need to get to quick, with no zipper pulls? So I added my own zipper pulls and now it is perfect. In summary, I would love to see this as a fix for future sales of this vest. Oh and also maybe a vest in a dark brown?
Owner of a vest
I bought one and I am not one to write reviews but I like this vest . I use it a lot and wish we had more cold weather to wear it more. When you order one get the next size larger because they do run small . This is a must if you carry . I give it a five star overall rating .
Order a larger size.
I bought this vest 2XL. I had mistakenly received the lightweight jacket in 2XL and it was perfect in size. But I wanted the vest, soI retrurned it and waited for the vest. When it came, I was impressed by the quality, but when I tried it on, it was too small! Even though the jacket was sized perfectly at 2XL, the vest is tight across the belly. Of course, that's where the "hidden" pistol goes, so now its clearly printed.
As the idea is to be "concealed", this issue, is not acceptable to me. Unfortunatley, there is no 3XL!
So, when sizing, consider that the vest needs to go up a size.
This vest is very nice. You could wear it to a country club no problem. It also feels really durable and should hold up over time. I'm 6'1" 200lbs muscular build and typically wear a large but a large would be too tight. I ordered an XL based of prior reviews and am glad I did. Fits perfect if not a bit snug. Tons of room in pockets. Nice holster comes with it.
Perfect- Great fit, quality construction (I'd buy a tan color too if available)
I normally wear LG but ordered XL and it fits great. Couldn't expect better feel and quality of material. Concealed carry is perfect and no sagging even though I carry a medium frame Beretta PX4 which is pretty heavy vs Glock etc.
Wish they made it in a tan or khaki and I would buy another one because I wear this one so much and would like to have another color that coordinates with dark color trousers. Buy one and you won't regret it.
Most comfortable concealed carry option you'll find
Great vest But...
Everything about this vest is wonderful except it is cut too small. I take a XL (5' 10", 205 lbs) and this vest in an XL is too tight around the hips and fits perfectly in the body. This means that when carrying a pistol - it shows! I'm returning the vest for a 2XL hoping it won't be too large. If the 2XL fits properly, I'll write another review with an updated rating.
Sizing is NOT correct !
I recently purchased this vest in a 2X and when arrived I found out it to be much smaller in size than was indicated on labels. While the vest is very well constructed and would have been perfect for my environment, with the sizing problem it could not be worn. I passed it along to a friend who wears a large size and it fit him great and works perfect for him. Reported problem to GlockStore and while they are planning on larger sizes, no ETA. Be careful when ordering and get at least one size larger.
Nice quality made vest, nice material and stitching is excellent! I'm 5' 9" 155 lbs. and normally wear a medium but went with recommedations of other reviews and ordered a size up and it fit well. Large inside pocket with velcro holster holds fast and conceals firearm real well, never know its there. I would recommend watching the video for full details and I would also recommend getting the vest.
Pro comments on CC Vest
by John from Wyoming
I already have 3 of the vests. On a windy day the vest does not blow open as my other lighter vest s do. I CC OTW so this is important not to have wind expose my weapon. In addition, the vest is rugged and looks great.
Love my tactical vest , but I’d like it even better if it was a XL Tall. (. Only other thing is I’d like it to have the inside holster that comes with the vest to have one on each side
Nothing but positives. Thought from advert would be too thin, but it is not.. unusual fabric--it is slicker than it looks and heavier. Must get a size larger. WELL DESIGNED. The concealed carry didn't work too good for me, I tend to carry a heavier weapon but for a light pistol, it will work. In short, an excellent jacket for general use... surprised at the quality considering the price point. AND MY SHIPPING WAS FAST.
Functional without screaming Tactical
I'm 5'7", 205lbs and usually wear a medium. I ordered a large and zipped up it fits snug but unzipped fits fine. The length is right to conceal an IWB holster so an XL might get the chest sizing right, but the length might be too long and obvious. Included one ambi holster that is generic, but it did not come with any mag pouch to get you going out of the box. The outside and inside chest pockets are zippered side loaders. I would have liked one to be a top loader. My "pet peeve" is the collar. The collar is 2.5" around. Not being a regular collar with the zipper going all the way up to the top edge, the collar will not lay down (look at the other products, same problem). I wear my hair "high and tight" and still feel it pushing up on my back hairline. Reducing the zipper height by a few inches would help because even when it's unzipped, the zipper keeps the top of the collar rubbing your neck. Would recommend a collarless version and more colors.

The Collar on this vest is way to high "My Opinion" and in the way of comfort. Nice vest tho.
You can't go wrong with this Vest.

I am a Vest Guy, have been called that long before I had a CCW permit. I have many vest, many have pockets inside of which I can conceal a weapon. This vest is the best of the vest I have. Looks good, fits very well ( I ordered a Large, had to send it back for a XL), works well, conceals very well!. I am ordering another in Blue.
The Best Vest Out There
When I ordered this the vest was on backorder. I saw something that appeared to be similar made by Wrangler. The Wrangler concealment vest was a disappointed. My concealed carry is a Glock 27. Given the poor pocket design with the Wrangler vest (the pistol rides too high, the stiff Velcro quickly abrades your knuckles, the outside pockets won't really take a pistol if you want to place it there, the vest is on the heavy side, etc.). I was also thinking that I might just have to go to a Glock 42 to slim down further. Wrong. All the pockets in your vest are perfect. It's very light weight. It will work in summer heat and under a winter coat. It works well zipped or unzipped. This is really a quality product. The comfort level and ease of concealed carry (I go to the gym every day and a holster wouldn't really work in the locker room) means that taking my Glock is less of an issue now. I researched this thoroughly and this is the best out there. For the price it's also an excellent value.
Great Vest AND Customer Service
Very nice vest and seems a quality product. I should have heeded the other reviews and ordered one size up. Coudos to the customer service for a fast turn around with exchanging the vest for a larger size. I would have given five stars if I hadn't had to pay almost $15 out of pocket to return and exchange for a size issue; as I had ordered my normal size. This item does run smaller than normal; order at least one size up.
Nice CC Vest, Not so Nice Collar
Purchases two vests, one large and the other x-large. I would agree with the other reviews that the vests do run a little on the smaller side. No noticeable printing with either size. They look nice and I like that they are long in the waist length. Could easily carry IWB with it too. Inside pockets are nice and large so that you can easily position your CC where you need it.
The only dislike that I have with the vest is that the collar is to short and is stiff. It does not stay folded down and it rides up into the neck when seated. Tried ironing it to see if it would stay folded down, but it did not make any difference. The collar needs to be made a little longer and more pliable or completely removed. Which with no collar it would be great, as I wear this mostly with polos and other collared shirts already.
Great product , glad I bought it
by Mike L
I just recieved my vest and I really like it. I would however order a size larger, it works great. Construction is top notch. I would like to know if I have to replace the holster can I get a replacement.
Exactly What I Was Looking For
Just received my vest and I'm more than pleased with the quality and design. I found this to be the best option for the money that I could find. For me personally there are no downsides to it.
I'm 5' 10", 172 pounds. I ordered the vest in a size Large and it fits perfectly wearing over a t-shirt combined with a sweatshirt. Carrying CCW in the supplied pocket holster or IWB showed no signs of printing (P938 , P365XL and G19).
Would absolutely recommend this vest.
What a perfect vest! It can be just an everyday vest whether or not you are carrying. It doesn't present as a gun vest. The workmanship is very high quality. All zippers are the best and work well. The draw cord at the bottom further enhances the fit. The holster and the pocket for it are easily accessible. Obviously designed by someone who was experienced and knew what they were doing. The gun doesn't print and the hand warmer pockets on the outside are well placed. I'm 5'7", 150 lb & about a 34-36" waist. I wear a loose fitting size large shirt. The size lg. vest fits in a very trim manner and is just the right size. The size large fits in a more trim fashion than my size large shirts. If I had more of a "gut" it would be tight around the waist. Couldn't be happier with the purchase.
