Tactical Vests/Plate Carriers for bigger guys/girls.

Postby comatose » Tue Feb 22, 2011 1:46 pm

You guys should do a video on what vests and plate carriers fit bigger guys. Not everyone is 5'7" 140lbs and I certainly don't want to look like I'm wearing a baby bib for a rig. Frank is a bigger guy and he already does the tips, why not have him showcase what fits and what doesn't. Just looking for options before I buy something that may or may not fit.

Thanks!

To be honest, most rigs will fit almost anyone. They have a lot of straps for adjusting on them. I bought a vest from Jonas, and he is quite small compared to me (the vest was adjusted for him when I recieved it, and it fit like a very small T-shirt) After adjusting it, it fits me like a glove. Reaches all the way down to my hips and is plenty wide. I'm 6' 5" 220lbs. Although I do feel they should do more videos about gear period. I like seeing new guns and stuff, but I also like seeing gear. Gear is the other half of the airsoft world, and we only get to see good reviews of it from people who took the time to buy it and try it out.

I see what you mean there, it's just you're still a slender-er-er type guy, AgentJ. You're 6'5" so you're not shall we say, chubby? :) Granted I could see where your concern would come from too considering your height.

Very true. I would just like to see more gear in general. It is the other half to our sport ya know? ;)
Including the sizes for the specific piece of gear they are showing wouldn't hurt either.
