Used British Military Surplus Ballistic and Stab-proof Vest, Black is rated 3.8077 out of 5 by 26.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from I know one potential buyer was cautious because the billing only listed medium, well he needn't have worried the vest has multiple adjustments and fit me easily at 5'11" and 230 lbs.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Poor Quality Product for SG to be selling its members Vest appears as though it will do the job in a pinch. That being said, we must have gotten the last of the stock. "Like New?" Not even close. Velcro ban around the front is completely stretched out and not of much use. Front shoulder areas look really ragged and ready to fall apart. Needless to say the whole shell is worn out and I don't think there is any way to replace it. Another thing is they are right when they say "Models May Very" This is NOTHING like the one they put in the ad. I am a member and have bought several things from SG but this time I am very disappointed in the difference in what they advertised and what I received. Gave 2 stars because like I said it looks like it will still do its job if needed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Maze Ing I think when I in total there is about 265 bucks worth of Kevlar alone. The carrier smelled like a gym locker but a little elbow grease and it shined up like a new dime. I feel a guilty for stealing it almost but not that bad

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lucky is as Lucky Does After reading a few bad reviews on this vest I had to put in my 2 cents worth. Happy accident I ordered a large and received a medium. Alot of reviews said that the vest runs really small so I thought i was screwed before i even got it out of the plastic.. I am 5'7" 186 lbs and with a few velcro strap adjustments it fits snug and perfect. The condition of the vest is uh I can't believe it was ever used. It looks mint. The vest I received is black with HEDDLU POLICE stitched into the back and the same on a badge/shield on the front. Heavy Duty Zipper and this thing says its rated up to a 357 cal. and is class one stab protection. My vest did not have pockets like the one in the photo but all things considered GREAT BUY. But I believe it was just the luck of the draw.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from poor condition/torn/too small way too small looks like a woman's vest. torn in several places, very poor condition

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good condition but a bit large. I am 5'10" @ 165lbs with a 38" chest and hence a light build and I ordered a large due to other reviews indicating how small these are. I normally wear medium or large. Typically medium in jackets. This was a bit large on me especially in the vertical. The condition is decent. Obviously used but definitely not abused. Regarding size the only thing I can figure is all of the people indicating a small fit are either getting a different batch, incorrect selection at the shipper or they are atypically "large" males.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from looks ok The vest looks ok, but the zipper separates every time I put it on. It's very disappointing because its a gift for my son and unless I can find someone to put a new zipper in, he won't be able to wear it.
