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 M81 Woodland was later superseded by 3-color Desert Combat Pattern, followed by Universal Camo Pattern (also known as "ACU").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.

"This is a very good chest rig! I have been doing research for Navy SEALs for over a year now and this is actually something they wear
_ very good
_ blends in really well with Woodland Camo!
_ easy to tighten
_ Actually Navy SEALs wear this in woodland, jungles etc.
_ can hold allot of mags and better than a vest
If you're thinking of buying this then don't hesitate and put it in you're cart now!
"Can not believe there is no reviews on this yet, how long has this been on the market?! Okay, first i'll start out that I am 6'2" at 196 Ibs and this vest fit me perfectly. There was some confusion at first about putting it on but I quickly found out how thanks to the help of the employee at the superstore, (you definitely need to visit. I love it everytime I do), who showed me around this vest. I will be straight up that the front of the vest has multiple layers of the vest attached via velcro so you probably might not feel BBs if you get hit. There is TONS OF MOLLE all over. I got this primarily for a juggernaut load out and because I am a saw gunner. So I got this mostly for protection but the freaking MOLLE everywhere could be helpful down the road. There are a couple things that are a slight annoyance. The neck guard tends to not only restrict my movement of my head as I can't look all around with a face mask on, but it is also constricting slightly to my neck making breathing a little uncomfortable. But you can loosen the neck guard by clipping the straps on its sides to the buttons farthest infront of the neck piece. Also the shoulder pads are a bit awkward to wear but it quickly goes unnoticed one you get into the game. Over all, nothing big.
Fits tall people (yay)

Lots of intimidation when combined with black smile mask, baseball knee guards, M249 SAW.
Shoulder pads and neck guard kinda get in the way
Tends to snag on vegetation in outdoor fields
