I am looking for a website to puchase a tactical vest carrier/cover for my Point Blank ballistic vest. I've searched for them on the internet but only find more of a military-type cover/carrier. My department allows only black outer carriers with minimal pockes, zippers, etc.
Btw, this carrier/cover is to be worn over my uniform shirt.
Thanks, in advance, for posting!

Did you check with Point Blank?
I assume you do not want the molle ones. If yo go with molle, you can add only the pouches you want and you can place them wherever you like. You can also molle velcro plackards onto them to which you can affix patches and identifiers.
Another consideration... years ago, we had a uniform place make vest carriers for us. They are slick covers with pouches sewn on where we instructed.
Did you want a tactical carrier or just an external cover like the kind that look like a uniform shirt or a quilted vest?

I can get you a new 'blue' Pointblank R20-D tactical carrier, but not black; sorry. If it has to be black, you can find them online at around 150.

Thanks for posting, everyone!
It has to be a black tactical vest with minimal pockets on it. Not just a vest cover. We can wear the kind mentioned above that look like the front of the shirt. I wish we could, I think those look pretty good.
I checked with Point blank and they didn't have the kind I'm looking for.:confused:

Roger, I love your tactical vest carrier too. Not that I'm trying to impede on that relationship, of course.

I recently bought a Tactical Vest Cover that is a carrier that I really like a lot. They do custom-designed vest covers which allow you to actually select the pockets you want and place them strategically where you want on your vest. They do have black material and a few other colors and they can do very specialized pockets and embroidery if desired. I have had the vest for a few months now and it’s the most comfortable I have ever used and I like having the pockets I need on my vest where I want them. Their phone number is 310.864.1567 and their website is
