221B Tactical Maxx-Dri Ultra Comfort Vest

The Maxx-Dri benefits are designed to increase anti-gravity comfort and to decrease fatigue from constriction and weight pressure of your body armor. Promote fast evaporation of moisture under your ballistic vest to keep your body temperature regulated.

  • Increased air flow for fast evaporation of moisture beneath your ballistic vest which decreases body heat and lingering sweat.
  • A drier tee-shirt or undershirt.
  • A decrease in the likelihood of developing dangerous skin rashes and infections.
  • A less stinky under shirt and a less sweat-soaked body armor carrier to bring home to launder.
  • Reduced possibility of becoming dehydrated.
  • Reduction in feeling fatigued.
  • Less strain on your shoulders and neck because of Maxx-Dri's cushioning properties.
  • An overall feeling of comfort by having your ballistic vest feel less heavy on your body.

How Do I Know What Size To Wear?
The fit of the Maxx-Dri Ultra Comfort Vest is not designed to follow the same criteria as one would have for buying an article of clothing like a shirt. Its purpose is not to act like a shirt but rather as a spacer to create airflow to facilitate evaporation of perspiration. This allows for dryness, cooling and overall comfort.

After working with dozens of officers most reported a more "snug" fit works best beneath their body armor and reduced any riding-up and shifting beneath their duty vests. Therefore, we recommend a "snug" fit by going one size smaller than an everyday man's tee shirt size. For those who are extra lean with waist sizes between 31" - 33", sometimes going two sizes smaller is preferred.

For females we recommend going down two sizes relative to a man's tee shirt size.

Please know there is elastic along the sides mitigating the concern for being too tight because the elastic allows for stretchability.

To further help guide you, the following are recommendations based upon real-life situations that worked for others:
  • 5'11”- 275 lbs -48 chest -38-40 waist → XL
  • 6'1” - 245 lbs -48~50 chest – 40 waist → XL
  • 6'11"-225 lbs -46 chest-39 waist → Large
  • 6'1"-240 lbs - 40 chest-38 waist → Large
  • 6'1”-210 lbs – 46 chest -36 waist → bet Medium & Large
  • 5'6” - 220 lbs – 41 chest – 40 waist → bet Medium & Large
  • 5'-9"- 160 lbs - 43 chest - 38 waist → Medium
  • 5'6” - 220 lbs – 41 chest – 40 waist → bet Medium & Large
  • 6'1”- 195 lbs – 44 chest – 35 waist → Medium
  • 6'2”-187 lbs- 40 chest-39 waist→ Medium
  • 6'2" - 202 lbs -45 chest-32 waist, muscular build, low body fat → Small
  • 5'10" -170 lbs - sport coat 38 Small - 31 waist → XS
  • 5'11” -175 lbs -39 chest-33 waist → XS

Lastly, if a person assesses himself or herself between two sizes, both will most likely fit snugly. If a very snug, compression-like fit is preferred, we recommend going with the smaller size. Conversely, if a slightly less snug fit is preferred, we recommend the larger size.

How Do I Wear My Maxx-Dri Ultra Comfort Vest?
It's simple. If you wear an internal ballistic vest you put your Maxx-Dri vest atop your undershirt and below your internal ballistic vest. If you wear an external ballistic vest you put your Maxx-Dri vest atop your uniform shirt and below your external ballistic vest. At only 8 ozs., you'll hardly know you're wearing it!!!

How Do I Wash My Maxx-Dri UCV?
We recommend that you machine-wash-cold and then let it hang dry. It should dry within a few minutes. Others have reported they simply rinse it through the shower in their locker rooms and then leave it to dry on a hanger in their lockers. Then the next time they arrive for work it's fresh to wear.
