Maxx-Dri Vest 3.0 Body Armor Ventilation – XL/XXL


The Maxx-Dri Body Armour ventilation vest is an essential piece of kit for any police officers, Corrections, military or any other tactical or Law Enforcement sector that wear body armour or an integrated ballistic system.

The Maxx-Dri vest helps reduce heat build up between the user and the body armour as it allows conviction of hot air and circulation of fresh air. This reduces heat related illness, dehydration and increases comfort and safety of the wearer.

The Maxx-Dri 3.0 vest is the current top of the line in the 221B Tactical range. It has all the premium features not found on the 1.0 and 2.0 and that you would expect from a 3rd generation product.

Whilst it again builds on the successful features of the 2.0, and shares a similar design and the same 8mm hi-flow mesh, the 3.0 vest, most noticeably has a new Velcro strap system for securing around the mid-riff.

The strap system is a highly durable elastic and heavy duty Velcro to meet the rugged standards of our customers and 221B’s warranty on the Maxx-Dri vests.

The Velcro strap securing system provides the user the ability to adjust the vest to a specific size if needed or when using the Maxx-Dri 3.0 in different scenarios where duty types and uniform type may change.

The 3.0 also now provides total 360 degree ventilation. Everywhere your body armour system touches on your body, now has an 8mm air cushion providing convection of heat and an inflow of fresh cool air.

The 3.0 includes the same retaining system at shoulder height that allows you to secure the Maxx-Dri vest to your body armour system so you don’t have to bother with it everyday. Secure it to the inside of your vest and it becomes a part of your body armour. Slip your system on…Velcro it up and go play. EASY!

The 3.0 also has a non-slip/non-shift technology built into it to prevent your 3.0 from twisting underneath your body armour or your shirt riding up. There are heavy duty rubber striping on the Maxx-Dri 3.0 in tactical positions and are a direct result of solid customer based design improvements.

The addition design features in the 3.0 were so popular with 221B tactical customers that it inspired them to revamp the 1.0 generation and from that, the 1.0Super Light was born.
