I am in desperate need of a tactical vest. The only problem is I am 6'3'' and pushing 300 or a little over. Anyone know of any vests that will fit a guy that wears 3xl shirts?

I'm not exactly your size (6'2" / 260s or so), but good enough.

Special Ops Forge vest works well for me, and I have room to spare so I imagine someone your size can fit in one.

I use either the stock class back or the heavy back and the zip front. They breathe better than any other vest I've tried and I haven't had any issues with it.

PCS vests are pretty large too, so that shouldn't be the issue.

Corey,

I hear ya man. I'm a big guy myself so I can give you a run down of our SO Vests at least...

One Size Fits All Vests that would work for you are...

- Scout Vest
- Dagger Vest
- Sabre Vest (they're discontinued so you'd either have to find a used one or we could do one custom)
- Forge Vest System

Or...XL versions of....

- Broadsword 6
- Recon 6

Or...

- Custom Vest made specifically to you requests and measurements.

Keep in mind that the perfect length for a Tactical Vest is actually coming down to your belly button. More or less is up to personal preference but they're designed to be short to allow for bending and movement.

I let my friend who is 6 feet tall, over 300 pounds use my size L broadsword vest. It was custom made, so the straps might have been longer, but I guarantee you that an XL would fit you fine.

THE INVISI-SIG!
I have no sig, because I am cool like that.
I love my phantom, because it is cool like that....schweet
