In 2015 AUTHORITIES GEAR brought the World’s Toughest professional equipment vest onto the market: The AUTHORITIES Hi-Viz Equipment Vest! Since then, it has been the best vest available for professional users who need top quality without compromising usability.
In 2020 AUTHORITIES GEAR have released an updated model based on the feedback which we received. The best has become even better.
The equipment vest is a work accessory designed in cooperation with the military and civil authorities, and in line with their needs. Because of its quality, adjustability and versatility, it is also perfect for use in the private security sector, as well as for any tasks where staff must be visible and to stand out from the crowd.
The vest has versatile pockets for carrying necessary use-of-force equipment and accessories while ensuring their easy usability. Less than lethal use-of-force equipment, gas sprays (all sizes) and batons (all lengths) can be carried in pockets regardless of their manufacturer. The pocket design enables the wearer to carry a wide range of accessories depending on the duties. The placement of the pockets ensures excellent usability regardless of whether the user is right- or left-handed.
The vest has big Velcro surfaces on both sides of the chest in the front and on the upper back. The Velcro surface allows you to attach badges to the vest according to the work task, and/or extra pockets. The Velcro surfaces are designed identical in size so the same badges can be used on both regular and large size vests. On the shoulders, space has been reserved to attach epaulettes so the vest can be used as a top garment in jobs where the regulations require their use.
The Authorities vest can be easily adjusted. With the adjustment system already known from the combat vests, the waist circumference of both vest sizes can be adjusted by up to 40 cm! The length of the vest can be adjusted using the Velcro straps on the shoulders. Thanks to the excellent adjustability, the vest can be easily used in all seasons regardless of the undergarment. The large adjustment capacity also allows for efficient joint mobility when using the vest.
(Regular) 75 cm-115 cm
(Large) 105 cm-145 cm
Note that the sizing is made over the stomach (not around the waist) and that clothing and full pockets increase the required circumference.
The Authorities Hi-Viz Equipment Vests are made of the best materials available. The fabric of the vest is the newest Hi-Viz Cordura® by C.F. Weber GmbH Germany. It comes with 3M Scotchlite reflective bands, YKK zippers, Alfatex Velcro surfaces, Hethcoat mesh material, AMANN strings, and more. Finally, these top-of-the-line equipment vests are obtained thanks to qualified seamstresses. Our own production facility and highly skilled seamstresses provide the ultimate quality guarantee for the vest.
