A tactical vest designed to hold as much gear as possible while maintaining full mobility. — 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 a SG5-K, USG-45, KAS-74U, or CR-61 Skorpion outside of a backpack or Assault Vest with Buttpack Attached.

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.
