The Outer Tactical Vest is equipped in the body slot.
The Outer Tactical Vest can obtained as a purchase from Mexico. It can also be found through city finds, given as a mystery gift from the Wheel of Awesome, and purchased from the Mission reward shop for ~156-240 Mission reward credits.
Outer Tactical Vests can be bought from other players through the Item Market, Bazaars, or Trades, but as Defensive items do not stack they must be purchased one by one, making it time consuming to buy in bulk.

No armor that is equipped in the body slot offers foot or head protection.
The Outer Tactical Vest was originally known as the "Bodyguard," with an item image of a man wearing a suit with sunglasses. The description for the Bodyguard said that the bodyguard charged a $1,000,000 one time fee and was "trained to protect their clients with their life," to explain the price,  but it was still equipped in the armor slot. It was changed to the Outer Tactical Vest 11 June 2008,  and had its image updated to a tactical vest.
