    I'm not sure how they measure them, but I am 6'5", 220lbs. Does anyone have one they're selling or know where I can find one?

    Any cop shop should be able to help you out or try one of the mail order/internet places. I am not a huge fan of Galls but they do have rebranded vests (ABA I think) that they sell under the Galls name. Binachi just started selling vests under the Lawman brand. Never seen one of those but the price was not bad.

    Thanks, I guess I'm looking for a used one though.

    Sweet Chinese Jesus, you'd trust your life to something you bought second-hand from craigslist? Remind me to tell you about that sale on the Brooklyn Bridge, great opportunity

    I'm with Hawk on this one. If you are going to skimp on something dont pick the vest. You might as well carry an unloaded gun too. Not trying to be a jerk but think about it.

    I have to agree with Jett and Hawk. Vest get worn out, from sweat and movement. Sometimes when you fold them they get ruined. If you are gonna get a vest, buy it brand new.

    Looking for a Vest - Clarification

    I guess I should have been more clear. I'm not looking for a ratty, old, bullet riddled vest. I'm looking for a used vest that perhaps someone was just wearing "yesterday" but got fired, retired, quit, promoted to administration, or for whatever reason doesn't want anymore. I'm not looking to take it rather than you just throwing it in the trash because you don't feel safe wearing it anymore.

    Does that help?

    Radiocop, you should be aware that kevlar vests degrade from moisture and sunlight in even the best conditions, and for all you know the guy you're buying it from kept it in a swamp. Buy new, don't take risks. Just look at the second chance scandal...

    I can tell you that the armorer on my job has shot an old vest with positive results. He took one that someone in uniform used regularly for over four years and it stopped the bullets that were shot at it.

    Now at the risk of sounding like I just came out from under a rock, what second chance scandal?

    The best advice we are giving you is don't buy used. Buy it brand new, and it will save you headaches.

    Yep, my pistol is loaded with a mix of armor piercing sarcasm and hollow point irony rounds...

    what are you looking to do with this vest (training, running, etc) ?

    no patrol activities I would think.................... the other guys are right about buying used ones for patrol, its like buying used rubbers, they might fit but damn they are nasty and may not work.. just a thought though.
