British Northern Ireland chestrig, DPM, surplus, w/o fastex fasteners
Probably one of the most awesome chestrigs ever made. Quality kit made by the British army. This piece is missing the fastex buckles of the pouches.
This thing is designed to carry the most vital items a soldier needs in combat. Used at least in Northern Ireland and Bosnia, and of course, SAS uses what They want...
The NI chestrig is a lighter alternative to the venerable PLCE-webbing. It is made of the same top quality cordura and features about just as many pouches as this kind of rig can take. Three magazine pouches designed to carry 3x 5.56mm mags each, utility pouches on the sides, and a large internal map pocket. It also features a piece of PLCE-belt on the backside for additional pouches (ALICE-pouches will fit too). The magazine and utility pouches both have a velcro fastening. In addition, an NI radio can be attached to the left suspender with press studs.
The shoulder straps can be adjusted quite freely, and this chestrig fits both small and larger persons equally nice. Of course, a waist strap can also be found on the backside.
Because this is a chestrig, it's extremely well suited to be used with a patrol pack, as your backside is free of anything that might interfere with a rucksack.
British DPM-camo, used condition. If you feel that you don't need any fastex fasteners on the pouches, here's the same excellent chestrig for a lower price.
