Importing armour and holdsters

Hi,
I've read and understand the "importing and you" in the FAQ. I just wanted to ask specifically before I try, has anyone had any issues importing armour, camo, holsters from the U.S.?
Thanks a lot guys,

Holsters and camo are fine. By armour, do you mean like, plate carriers?

Actual body armour may be subject to regulation, I know US does not allow export of Level IV plate.

do you mean the SAPI plates or the carrier vest?

also holsters are apparently fine but I've heard of one person getting a vest with cross-draw holster stopped, which was probably a case of very bad luck considering they're now quite common in Canada.dunno.

afaik you cant even buy ballistic plates here and you need Mil/LE ID for them to sell it to you. so im guessing no armour.

There are currently laws either in place, pending assent or in the legislative process in Ontario, BC, Alberta, Manitoba and perhaps others I'm not aware of right now regarding the possession of body armour without a license.

In Alberta, a PAL is all that is required, but it is required (apparently).

The U.S. has the best armour, but almost all of it is export restricted (rather severely).

I though as long as it has serial numbers you can have all the armour you want.

Very sorry about the confusion,
What I meant was not "armour" per se, but a m.o.l.l.e. vest.
As far as I know it has no ballistic plates of any kind, I'm just worried that maybe the look of it would get it seized at the border.
See image;
Thanks for all the usefull feedback from everyone!
