Sizing and adjustments

The Tacticum Vest is available in many different sizes, but it also offers a wide range of size adjustment. The sizing and fit is adjusted using hook-and-loop on the shoulders and shock cord and webbing loops on the back which adjust the circumference of the cummerbund and side flaps. The shock cord enables the vest to breathe and move with the user, providing that little extra bit of comfort.

The measurements in the size menu are recommended user chest circumferences in centimetres, including the adjustment range. Various sizes weigh as follows:

  • Small: 3,8 kg
  • Medium: 3,9 kg
  • Large: 4 kg
  • X-Large: 4,1 kg

Made by Sioen Ballistics

In 2017 Belgium based Sioen purchased Verseidag, the gear is still the same only under another name.
