Old Ops Vest


This might be a bit of a bone question.. I have seen one or two of these Ops vests which differ from the one on issue now.

On the right chest they have three grenade pouches and a zipped horizontal pouch rather than the normal utility one, and a load of other less obvious differences.

Does anyone know if they were ever on issue, or made by someone else?
I might as well cut to the chase, does anyone know where one might obtain one?

The only ones I have seen issued didnt have anything on the right chest. I have seen such items and I think they were purchased, rather than issued.
No idea where to get one.


As far as I know they were never on issue, I used to have one and bought it from HM Supplies but that was in '95 and I havnt seen them since, wish Id kept it now.
