Step 1.
Start by putting on your body armor in its existing carrier and then measure the gap or overlap (if there is one) on the side of your body. You will need to write this measurement down on your order form.
Step 2.
Now measure the gap between the bottom of your pads and your belt line. You will also need to write this measurement down on your order form.
Step 3.
Take off your body armor and trace the front panel on a piece of newspaper. Be certain to trace ONLY the body armor. You may leave your panels in their original carrier when you trace your body armor, just avoid tracing the excess carrier material as much as possible. We only need to know the dimensions of your body armor. But remember, your body armor in its original carrier will be placed in our product!
Step 4.
On a separate piece of newspaper, trace the back panel of your body armor. Again, trace ONLY the body armor. You may leave your panels in their original carrier when you trace your body armor, just avoid tracing the excess carrier material as much as possible. We only need to know the dimensions of your body armor. But remember, your body armor in its original carrier will be placed in our product!
Step 5.
Write on your front panel tracing where you want your utility pockets to be placed. List where the pockets should go by simply writing the name of the item (cuffs, pen, radio, etc.) on the area.
Step 6.
Trace the items you want pockets made for - be certain to trace them in BOTH directions (see picture) so that we can get the measurements of all the item's dimensions. Do this for radio, mobile phone, pepper spray, ammo clips, etc.
Step 7.
If you are ordering a Hybrid Vest Carrier, take a pic of your uniform shirt pocket like the one shown here so that we can replicate your pocket design when we make your external vest carrier. Print off the pic and include it in your order package that you mail to us.
Step 8.
Print out the Order Form from this website and fill it out.
Be sure to include the color you want of your External Vest Carrier and your lettering - as well as the measurements you took in
Steps 1 & 2.
