Oakley TFG AP Payload Vest

Oakley TFG AP Payload Vest

Oakley was founded in 1975 by avid motorcross fan Jim Jannard who named the brand after his pet dog ‘Oakley Anne’. He started out by producing motorcycle grips constructed from ‘Unobtainium’, a unique rubber material that he had created which offered the best grip in wet conditions. It wasn’t until 1984 that Oakley made their move into the eyewear market, which they would go on to completely revolutionise. During the 90s they decided to transfer their innovative expertise into the clothing market. The ‘Tactical Field Gear’ label specialised in producing pieces with highly technical designs and heavy military influences that were built to handle any conditions, futher cementing Oakley’s position as a leader of innovation.

The AP Payload Vest epitomises just how brilliant the Tactical Field Gear pieces were and is one of the most sought-after pieces among oakley collectors worldwide. This is another Oakley piece that is deep-rooted in Brazilian street culture, along with the Medusa, X-metal frames and a few other rare Oakley pieces. It is constructed from padded mesh and ballistic nylon. There are a total of 8 pockets on the front, all different shapes and sizes allowing for multiple storage options, and another discrete compartment on the interior. The chest pockets were originally designed to hold ammo clips and two-way radios. The several metal D-Rings on the shoulders and back allow the wearer to attach compatible Tactical Field Gear daypacks and backpacks to the vest. The strap loops on the shoulders back also allow for more attachment and storage options for larger items and also work as a hydration tube trap. The Velcro compression straps on the side allow the wearer to adjust the fit of the vest and the patch on the chest can be replaced with patches of the wearer’s choice. Undoubtedly one of the coolest pieces Oakley has ever produced.

Good condition with some minor signs of wear and age.
