Question Quick import question

I know what you can and cannot import but it says you can import combat gear like vests right? well I was at seals action gear and was looking at that ceramic plate ballistic stuff and it said there may be issues for people who order outside Canada, so I can only assume there may be problems ordering a tactical vest from outside Canada.
I found the perfect tactical vest for me and I wanna buy it
I don't want to disclose what model it is for the sake of originality and my personal strive for uniqness but it is pretty cheap, not expensive enough to come with plates but I'm pretty sure it is made of Kevlar and sure as hell looks like its packing a plate or two, it has large shoulder pads and neck protector, in fact its pretty close to interceptor armour the americans use. It's in the US so would I have a problem dragging it accross the border? (aside from a huge shipping bill and import tax). so can I order plate carriers/tac vests no prob?

The only restricted things are full guns,
Parts of the reciver (body)
Mags with dummy rounds
Grenade launcers
Realistic looking grenades

No vests should not be a problem, but why don't you buy locally and support your local retailers?

Also, if you wanna be unique, thats great but chances are someone already has this vest

Some vest are actually a little iffy to import. Some Eagle products for example can raise some eyebrows. It could be due to the ballistic plates though.

ITAR might be a thorn in your side from the exportation side (you can import into Canada only thing is if the US side will let you export said item) but otherwise it shouldn't be a problem.

Additionally you do realize that you can get knockoffs from Asia right? Pantac (Phantom) makes some pretty good vests.

lol I do support our Canadian retailers but this vest can only be found in the US and is only my 3rd import, I've been watching the forums for a long time and there is no mention of this brand from you guys, (I even searched it) its a pretty small company more than likely just getting off their feet so it'll be factory Direct, I've never seen anything like this vest before its a pretty cool new design and I've never seen anyone wear it before so I am the first (yay).

just keep a lookout in the airsoft media section in the next month or so, this vest will complete my loadout which is pretty badass!

1. NO sales/classifieds in signatures, restricted or not.
2. The accessories section is Age Restricted as well, anyway.
