FAQ

How did you achieve One-Size-Fits-All?

The Over/Under Vest has the most adjustability of any on the market, allowing a truly custom fit for any body type. The waist belt can be moved higher or lower. The shoulder straps have a movable attachment point (front to back) to the lower portion of the vest. No other vest has figured this out. Also, the chest straps can be moved up or down (one or both can also be removed to suit your preference). You can really dial it in to custom fit any body type. Think of it like the high-end hiking packs. It fits similar to a backpack, but yet it carries the weight on your hips and close to your center of gravity.

 

Will the Over/Under Vest fit women?

Yes!  This vest has the most adjustability of any on the market, allowing a truly custom fit for any body type. The waist belt can be moved higher or lower. The shoulder straps have a movable attachment point to the lower portion of the vest. And the chest straps can be moved up or down (one or both can also be removed to suit your preference). You can really dial it in to custom fit any body type.


Do magnetic pocket closures affect ammo/shells?

Not at all.  If they did, you wouldn’t see so many magnetic gun mounts on the market. Magnets can stick to the base of a shell case and they have no effect on the shell or its shot pattern. You’re good to go. By the way, you will really love the quick access and automatic closure of the magnetic pouch flaps!  


How do pouches & accessories attach to the vest?

We’ve implemented laser cut panels with MOLLE/PALS spacing. You can attach virtually any MOLLE or PALS accessory to the vest. These systems have been tested and proven by our most elite military units in thew world’s most rugged terrain.


Will other MOLLE and PALS attachments work with the Over/Under Vest system?

Yes! We use standard MOLLE/PALS spacing. You can attach virtually any MOLLE/PALS accessory to the vest. Please share the creative ways you utilize the vest and attachment system; we would love to see it!

 

What does MOLLE stand for?

Modular Lightweight Load-carrying Equipment.  MOLLE and PALS are often used interchangeably, but technically MOLLE is a type of modular gear that attaches to PALS webbing or laser cut panels.


What does PALS stand for?

Pouch Attachment Ladder System.  MOLLE and PALS are often used interchangeably, but technically PALS is the layout of webbing or laser cut panels that will accept MOLLE attachments.
