~ In-game description

The Tactical Vest, commonly referred to as a "high-cap", is a vest in DayZ Standalone. It is one of the few articles of clothing capable of containing either a SG5-K, USG-45, KAS-74U, AUR A1, CR-61 Skorpion, Bizon or the LE-MAS in its inventory, outside of a backpack or Assault Vest/Utility Buttpack combination.

An Olive Tactical Vest will turn a dark green when damaged or badly damaged. While this effect is detrimental to camouflage, it can only be repaired with a Leather Sewing Kit.
