Agilite Tactical Hi-Vest

It’s funny the way that trends seem to come round and round in a frequent manner; when I first started playing airsoft on a regular basis everyone raved on and on about tactical vests, and it was almost a fashion statement as to which brand you bought into. Over time everyone moved onto plate carriers with acres of MOLLE attachment points, and more recently it’s all been about “light is right” with increasingly minimalist rigs

I was actually pretty excited when a local tactical gear shop started stocking gear from Agilite. It’s not a particularly well-known brand in the UK, but their heritage is pretty solid; Agilite was founded by Israeli Special Forces and US Army veterans who know a great deal about what makes kit both in terms of make-up and performance. All their gear is manufactured in the USA to the highest possible standards using the most advanced fabrics and construction techniques; it’s really never going to fall apart or let you down.

The Israelis have never really adopted the “MOLLE” system, even to this day relying on load carrying vests and standalone body armour systems, and the Tactical Hi-Vest is a superb example of this mind-set.

The Tactical Hi-Vest swallows up to twelve M4 style magazines securely in numerous front facing pouches, and includes a tether for binoculars or NVG, an innovative pull strip for spare batteries, a knife sheath, a compass pouch and compartments for storing all the other kit you might ever need!

Made from bomber tough 1000D Mil-Spec tactical nylon and featuring ITW Nexus hardware throughout, it weighs in at just 3lbs unloaded. It’s highly adjustable so you can get the fit absolutely perfect and keep everything exceptionally stable. If you need more space, perhaps for a Mil-Sim weekender, the Hi-Vest is 100% compatible with Agilites Modular Assault Pack (AMAP) which gives an additional 15L of load carrying space; this attaches direct to the vest itself, and can be fitted and removed in seconds.

The price of the Tactical Hi-Vest means that it’s not going to be for the occasional skirmisher in all fairness, but if you’re a player that likes to immerse themselves in a rolling, multi day scenario where you need to carry most of your fighting load with you, then this excellent bit of kit is thoroughly worthy of your consideration!
