The Dress Vest is the AE solution to the growing demand for an outer carrier system that is suitable for daily use by Patrol Officers. Designed to be indistinguishable from the uniform shirt, the professional looking Dress Vest helps to camouflage the presence of your protective body armor panels. As an outer carrier, the Dress Vest allows users to cast off their armor without the necessity to remove their uniform shirt first.

Featuring a durable 500/600 Denier outer shell, this carrier offers adjustable shoulders with epaulets. An internal plate pocket accommodates 5”x8” inserts for added protection. An internal cummerbund holds the rear panel in place and assists in donning the vest. The two sewn on chest pockets are fully functional and include a pen/pencil sleeve.

Department patches can be sewn on to the front of the carrier at no additional charge.
