OR Summer Market – Ex Officio

Thursday, August 14th, 2014

Time and again I come back to Ex Officio for performance clothing that looks good enough to wear to business meetings. Many have adopted travel vests or photographer’s vests or range vests over the years due to their ability to conceal a pistol beneath as well as load carrying capacity. At one point, they were civilian clothing load carriage. But that’s the problem. They look like you’re carrying something so they’ve been abandoned.


At OR, I saw the Men’s FlyQ Lite Vest. It is cut large enough that you can concealed carry beneath it and all of the load carriage options are on the inside. Additionally, it incorporates a drop tail, rear hem. The styling is pretty straight forward with two upper chest, Napoleon-style pockets and two handwarmer slash pockets. The real secret are the 11 interior pockets, sized for a wide variety of items. If you’re a guy who wants to wear a vest but doesn’t want to stand out, this may just the thing you’ve been looking for.


Coming in Spring 2015 in Lt Khaki, Walnut (shown) and Black.
