The replica interceptor vest by Phantom is designed for those looking for a serious body armor vest for hard-core simulations and Airsoft gaming. It is modeled and designed after the interceptor vest widely used by military personnel all over the world. It features a rugged and durable build quality with MOLLE webbing for attaching all of the pouches you may possibly need.History of the I.B.A. Vest:
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 M81 Woodland was later superseded by 3-color Desert Combat Pattern, followed by Universal Camo Pattern (also known as "ACU").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 OTV is an awesome recreation. It looks just like the original and has even more molle space along the back and down the center. VERY adjustable, bigger guys will like as well. Some might like the jacket style rather than the cummerbunds, especially on hot days.
Awesome recreation with awesome removable armor (which I use on my MTV just fine)
Tons of molle space
Good soft armor
Easy plate access
Gets warmer than some other vests
Can get heavy on shoulders with full loadout
Overall: This vest is definitely a keeper. Good molle space, extra armor, and realism so close to the vest make it worth keeping.
"This vest is perfect for airsofting. It does everything. The MOLLE (Which is all over the place) allows you to make your own loadout based on what you want. The Shoulder Guards, Groin Guard, and Neck Guard are really nice and can be removed if you don't want to use them. The entire thing is made of a really heavy-duty material that isn't going to tear unless you bring it to a real war. Overall I give this vest a 5/5 because it's simply amazing.
Pros: Versatile, plenty of MOLLE, added protection from shoulder, neck, and groin guards, guards can be removed for more mobility, and it's made of Cordura (I think that's what it's called).
Cons: Heavy (with everything added to it), neck guard will sometimes get in the way when trying to take the vest off (Easy to fix, just unbutton neck guard before removing vest).
