I need some help. I am trying to find the manufacturer of a hiking/survival vest. These were made I believe in the last 10yr.
They were designed like a military SV-1 or SV-2 vest. IE- One large zippered pocket under each arm.Does anyone remember who made these vests? No it was not Rothco.

Could it have been from these guys?

If I remember- they did some 'custom' vests 10-20 years ago. Might be wrong but they have a good product.

No it was not a Scottevest.
The vest I'm looking for is a clone of the mil SV vests. The vest is really 2 underarm pockets, flat front across chest and hang by suspenders.

Isn't the SV-1 from the Vietnam era, so Vietnam reenactors might have a line on clones.
