Eagle Industries TAC-V1-NU Vest

Weeks ago i used to opportunity to buy a retro Eagle Industries TAV Vest for a crazy *nice price*! ๐Ÿ™‚

I don`t know much about this vest (even the exact name is 100% for sure) so i checked many, many pics, googled like hell and read posts on many MIL boards but did not find real answers. This vest seems pretty rare because i haven`t found almost no info about it.
I wrote to EAGLE some emails also but they do not respond ๐Ÿ˜ฆ .

Overall condition is still very good and the vest has almost no signs of wear.
All buckles and zippers are 100% working.
Due to the combination of a very low price paid and still in this wonderful condition makes me enjoy it even more! ๐Ÿ™‚

At the moment it`s fun gathering stuff from the past where MOLLE was not the coolest thing on earth. I think that this piece of nylon will be the starting point of a new impression to raise – something oldskool and from the 90ies! Stay tuned folks! ๐Ÿ˜Ž

The vest has two changeable panels at the front:

The triple mag pouch panel as a small universal compartment (ideal for carrying a gun, an extra mag, some chem lights etc.):

Backside of one of the panels – 100% velcro covered:

Backside of the vest:

Inner view:

The inside offers two large (and i mean large!!!) mesh pockets on each side of the inner vest. This is pretty similar to well known UK vests that have such pockets, too.
I really enjoy the possibility to put important stuff like paperwork (e.g. maps) close to my body. On the back there is another large pocket that seems to be a good place to put a hydration bladder in. Regarding to the loops on the front this seems a cool thing to go with!

Cuff pouch (on right shoulder):

Shotgun pouch (left upper side) with removable shell loops:

Shoulder adjustment (velcro only – no snap buttons or something else):

Hand grenade pouch (on left shoulder):

Multi purpose pouches (left side):

Multi purpose pouch (right side) with loops:

Some larger pics for more details (click to enlarge):

I really dig this vest and have used it in one skirmish so far.
It performed very well and was very comfortable to wear and use.
Within the next days i try to post my complete battle loadout that i carried with me that day. I think it`s interesting to see how much this vest can carry and how i managed to keep all things organized and ready for use…


I am looking for pictures showing this vest “in action/ in use” by US military!
If someone has something to share, this would be very helpful!

Thanx! ๐Ÿ™‚
