Finnish M05 combat vest
The official combat vest base of the Finnish army, newest model. The high price tag hides behind a vest that meets military specifications. No wonder, as the same manufacturer makes these for the army.
Note:the pouches seen in the extra picture are not included.
Essentially, this is a somewhat ordinary vest base. On the outside you will find:
- All available space filled with PALS loops.
- Closure with four plastic (ITW Nexus) buckles.
- Side adjustment with elastic cords. Now, here's the big plus: these can be adjusted a lot, so the Small-Medium vest will snugly fit even the smaller users, a rarity in these type of vests.
- Friction pads, sling/shoulder strap stoppers and velcro loops at both shoulders - the vest is lefty-compatible as well. Drinking tube can be secured through the velcro loops.
- Reflective tag on the neck. Can be hidden, if not needed.
On the inside:
- Belt loops for the M05 belt. Of course, most will fit through but the heavy duty M05 belt works best.
- Flat document pockets with velcro closure on both sides of the front panels.
- A pocket for a hydration system on the back panel. Most 2-3 l bladders should fit.
- A small window for a name tag.
- Carrying handle in the neck, evacuation/dragging handles in the armpits. Do not use the neck handle for dragging.
Made of military grade cordura, with PU-coating on the inside. The quality is excellent overall, as should be expected.

Muuten konseptina ok, taskuja saa minne vaan ja kestää varmaan ydinlatauksenkin. Vyö melkeinpä ehdoton.
