The Interceptor Body Armor (IBA) system is a bullet-resistant vest originally used by US Armed Forces in the late 90's to the mid 2000's, seeing use up to around 2010. The IBA replaced the older 1980's era PASGT armored vests. The IBA OTV was initially produced in M81 Woodland Camo, but was also made in Coyote-brown for USMC units. M81 Woodland was later superseded by 3-color Desert Combat Pattern, followed by Universal Camo Pattern (also known as "ACU").
The IBA OTV featured the ability to hold SAPI plates, and had a Kevlar liners for added protection.

"I have owned this vest for over two years, and it has never let me down. It is extremely protective. It is a great vest if you plan to play in a CQB field with no minimum engagement distance (my closest airsoft field is this way). It is also vary durable. I have gotten caught in thorny vines and bushes in deep woods airsoft battles and yet it shows no wear and tear. After two years it still looks fairly new.
It has plenty of Molle to attach pouches. I put four double mag pouches across and still had plenty of room for hydration, dump, and utility pouches. There are two cons though. 1. It is very hot in the summer (could be a pro if you live in a place that rarely gets above 75). 2. It is bulky. If u plan to get into tight spaces uninhibited or want to feel as little restriction as possible this is not the vest for you. Otherwise, it is a fantastic vest and I would recommend it to anyone.
"Vest fit well, the material inside the vest greatly reduced the impact from airsoft and paintball rifles. I got many pouches to go with mine, as well as a set of replica SAPI plates, and it now looks exactly like my issued one, except for the velcro on the back flap. Good stitching, overall a decent vest.
"Zero issues, good fit, great build quality. Seams are good, accepts SAPI plates AND ballistic padding from real interceptor to replace foam.
