- 511 Instructions
(click on each picture to enlarge)
Step 1.
Print out the 511 Order Form from this website and fill it out.
Be sure to include color and material type of your External Vest Carrier - as well as the measurements you took in Steps 2, 3 & 6.
Step 2.
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 3.
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 4.
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 5.
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 6.
Measure from the top of your shoulder (basically the middle of your trap muscle) or the middle of your epaulet to the top of where your duty belt lies. The purpose of this measurement is to see how long your vest carrier should be.
Step 7.
