Tac Vests for bigger guys

Recommended Posts

Looking for some advice for the more experienced about a Tactical Vest/Plate Carrier rig for a bigger guy.

 

I wear an XL so i'm not exactly Rick Waller but all the "Once Size Fits All" Stuff just isn't working for me.

 

Are there any companies that make actual sized vests ie. M. L. XL ect.. or any other suggestions.

 

Thanks in advance

Do what I do and put mags in folds :D

 

 

I assume your chest is around 46-48? Just read the description of the vest it usually has dimensions or a floor plan in our case :lol:

Both bulldog and warrior have lots of adjustment in thier vests, my bro is a big guy and wears a bulldog. Tbh he has started to embrace harness rigs alot more as he finds them alot less restricive and just as handy at carrying gear

Chest rigs tend to work better for people with a bigger frame, I have the opposite problem because I'm skinny.

UKTactical kit is top of the range, extremely high quaility and there kit is very adjustable, but its pricey.

Flectarn.co.uk do a lot of kit which is basically the same idea but with a smaller price tag.

Im the brother shortman mentioned haha im about 5'10, 18ish stone, and really quite built shoulders and back with the generous insulation we all know and love. I have a bulldog mk2 that fits fine, and is quite adjustable for height and width. Side panels come off to give it even more comfort. I also have a h harness and belt set up and a viper chestrig. The last two are definately the more comfartable for a bigger guy, and cheaper than the bulldogg.

 

Bulldogg is around 150 new and fully loaded (does come with alot of shiz tbf) and the belt and harness were about 60 together. The chest rig is 35 new. All have plenty of stuff for a skirmish, and the belt or bulldogg will do for a long milsim game with a bit of extra pouches.

 

A guy on youtube diles46 is a great guide for bigsoft as he calls it.

This.

 

I have a 46" chest and my 901 is adjusted almost as small as it goes. Remember that most "proper" PCs and chest rigs are designed to be worn over more than just a t-shirt/UBACS.

Try having big arms, chest, back and shoulders and try and find anythin that fits. XL looks good on top but a tent round the middle and m looks good round the waists but like I have sprayed it on on top.

I went with a plate carrier as I wasn't restricted by the zip.
