A light, durable and warproof combat vest for a low price! US Army surplus.

The IIFS (Individual Integrated Fighting System) was adopted in 1988 to replace and complement the ALICE system and is in limited use even today. All-new items in the IIFS were the combat vest, rucksack and day pack. This combat vest has been designed to be used together with an LC-3 belt, which is to be equipped with water canteens and pouches for additional magazines.

Two models: The LBV-E is an improved version of the LBV-88, with slanted magazine pouches and breathable mesh in place of nylon fabric. Pick whichever tickles your fancy, they're very much alike.

Features four magazine pouches for six M16 magazines, two grenade pouches, good adjustments in every direction, and ten belt loops for LC2/3 pistol belts. Basically, this vest acts rather like a set of suspenders (but with a realtively huge carrying capacity), with the main load carried on the belt. An excellent design, yet quickly superceded by the MOLLE-system.

For those not too keen on MOLLE, this "vest" is lightweight, has easily accessible pouches, and as it does not cover the entire upper body, it doesn't boil you in your own sweat.

I would recommend for a friend

Didn’t purchase one here but I was issued one back in the day. It’s a really good system and in some ways better than molle. It bears the weight well and will hold lots of mags. Not as hot as the molle system , if a little fussy on initial set up. Guys with fat necks complained that the shoulder pads would rub on their neck, I never experienced that though. It’s modular in that you can hack stuff on to it with 550 cord, or stuff on the belt. You could even mix molle and Alice that way. . You can ride in vehicles because nothing is on your back unless you add the ass pack . I wore it in Panama and it wasn’t uncomfortable.
