The Full Metal Jacket by Rivers West is designed to provide versatility and piece-of-mind for CCW permit holders. Check out the video below to get a closer look at this product.

According to the press release, it is the only conceal carry jacket currently available which accommodates cross-draw or strong-side draw for both left and right-handed shooters. With this jacket, the end user can safely grip their concealed firearm without attracting attention. It simply gives the appearance of somebody having their hands in their pockets. In extreme situations, the wearer can also shoot directly through the jacket without having to draw the concealed weapon.

The Full Metal Jacket contains interchangeable detachable holster rigs which are compatible with a number of different handguns. It also has a zippered chest pocket, two zippered handwarmer pockets, two hidden strong-side draw pockets, two interior cross-draw pockets, additional padding sewn in which obscures the outline of the firearm, and a built-in shoulder harness which distributes weight over the shoulders and minimizes the “sagging” effect.

“We looked at the average citizen who carries, why he or she carries, and developed a jacket that will maximize their ability to get into action faster and safer than ever before,” said Rivers West president Michael McGinley. “Although most of us who carry will never have to make use of this speed in action, there is the situation everyone must acknowledge – when it matters, the unexpected will freeze most of us, and the Full Metal Jacket greatly enhances one’s ability to get into action faster and better.”

MSRP for the Full Metal Jacket ranges from $169.00 – $189.00. See below for additional details.
