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 M81 Woodland was later superseded by 3-color Desert Combat Pattern, followed by Universal Camo Pattern (also known as "ACU").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

"So around a month ago I ordered a Woodland camo Interceptor vest from Evike, they sent me an ACU camo vest instead. So I send it back in no problem. Now I received the correct vest 2 weeks later and it did not fit. At this point I would say it is my fault however a review on their website about this vest said it Fit a 6'2 man. This review was false and did not fit a 6'2 man. I would've gone off of a size chart for the vest however the website did not supply a size chart and most other size charts are different. I contacted Evike to send the item back in for a refund and they reply saying I will be facing a restock fee and shipping charges for the item. Now I have to pay for their negligence of not putting a size chart on their items. I will never support Evike again and will inform people not to buy from this business.
THIS DOES NOT FIT A 6'2 MALE, DO NOT BUY IF YOU ARE THIS SIZE
No Size chart
Vest looks nice. That's it.
"Got this to help give me more cover from BBS at close ranges and boy does it ever do its job. Gives me ample protection but still fluid movement. Can hold a lot of pouches if you want though I only keep a couple on it. Though its not the coolest vest to wear in the wasrm weather, you will sweat, a lot. But to balance that out it covers all of your more sensitive spots below the head where BBS hurt the most and all too often tend to hit. A great vest if you're also going for the full military look and want a more realistic experience
"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.
