Propper launches stylish vest with tactical functionality
Apr '13
Propper International announces the El Jefe Puff Vest, a stylish three-season vest with concealed tactical functionality. Part of the Sweep collection, the El Jefe Puff Vest helps the wearer blend in to the non-uniform or urban environment while maintaining a tactical advantage.

The El Jefe Puff Vest is made from micro ripstop fabric and lightly insulated to provide warmth without bulk. The quilted fabric conceals pull-out ID panels on the chest and back, allowing the wearer to transition from covert casual to tactical in seconds. This quilting also helps prevent printing when carrying concealed weapon.

The El Jefe Puff Vest incorporates two-way double sliders on the full-zip front for easy access to a weapon or holder at the waist. The zipper tucks neatly into a sleek zipper garage at the top for a clean look. Slip-resistant shoulder panels resist abrasion when wearing a strap or sling.

The El Jefe Puff Vest is available in black, charcoal and LAPD navy and retails for $59.99 at authorized PROPPER retailers nationwide. A portion of proceeds from the El Jefe Puff Vest will benefit Sheep Dog Impact Assistance, a non-profit organization that supports military and law enforcement personnel in times of need. Shoppers can look for a Sheep Dog hangtag on all Sweep collection garments to identify qualifying products in store.

These puff outerwear items are featured in two new catalogs from PROPPER – the 2013 Full Line Catalog and the 2013 Concealed Carry Product Guide. Download a copy of these catalogs to learn more about PROPPER and its newest offerings.


Propper International is one of the largest suppliers to the United States armed forces, having manufactured over 120 million garments for the U.S. Department of Defense. PROPPER also manufactures apparel for law enforcement, first responder and tactical markets. PROPPER commercial products are distributed through more than 3,000 military, public safety, outdoor and specialty retail stores and websites across the country.
