X Back Basic Aircrew Vest


Out of stock

The X-Back Basic incorporates the same fit, adjustment and overall comfort users have come to expect from the SWITLIK X-Back MOLLE design, with the addition of two permanently attached pockets in place of the MOLLE vest attachment loops. The “Basic” naming of this vest speaks not to a basic design, but to a vest that is meant for when you only need to travel with basic items such as keys, phone, wallet, locator beacons & sunglasses.

The design incorporates a unique proprietary interior cell folding technique combined with an open V-Neck design to remove the bulk from your neck and evenily distributes weight across your shoulders to reduce interference with your helmet and fatigue.

The simple reliable dual breakaway design provides immediate inflation when activated (from both sides of the jacket), and can easily re-closed if needed. Backup oral inflation tubes are conveniently located on either side of the vest and easily reached through the side access flaps.
