There are three sizes of this vest to cover the range from men’s Small to XXXL. Choose the size based on what you normally buy in men’s clothing. The vest has adjustments on the side and shoulders and we found that the vests easily fit subjects within the range specified (and then some). The front of the vest extends only part way down the torso, so belly and/or waist sizes aren’t really much of a factor.
Our Two Cents
The Field Armor Stryker Mil Spec Vest from Icon integrates chest and back protection in a vest that satisfies military requirements for visibility. This basic design is offered in this highly visible version and also a standard version (take the link below to view). These vests will be highly visible both day and night. There are two super vivid colors to choose from for day time visibility and the vests also have ample reflective material for night time use. The vest is lightweight and breathable and made of very comfortable materials (on the sides facing the body). The vest is made of a wide variety of materials…. hard plastic on the outer shell of the back protector and chest protector components, softer foam behind those protectors, a soft inside liner for comfort, soft welting around each of the outer seams, rubber grommets around each of the styling components (those things that look like vents on the front).... I could keep going, but you get the idea. Overall it looks and feels like very well made armor that would do a great job in case of a crash. It is quick to put on and take off, and seems very comfortable (as compared to traditional styles with an elastic belly strap and shoulder straps). This unit works with the Stryker elbow and knee armor (listed below). A couple of the photos show the integrated ID pocket and below the pocket is a list of military specs. We don’t have specific information about the acceptability of these vests by the military, but hopefully those numbers will help those who may be interested.

Happy Customers Who Bought This Product
The Icon Field Armor Mil-Spec Vest provides a high level of protection (thankfully not crash-tested yet) while allowing me to ride without a full jacket in the Florida heat. Its getting to the point in the seasons where I have to wear this over a leather jacket, but it is comfortable even then. The hi-viz yellow definitely helps me get seen by the somnambulent drivers around here. (Read more...)
