Probably one of the most awesome chestrigs ever made. Quality kit made for the British army. Designed to carry the most vital items a soldier needs in combat. If this vest has everything you want, there's really no need for MOLLE designs.

The NI chestrig is a lighter alternative to the venerable PLCE-webbing. It is made of the same top quality cordura and features as many pouches as this kind of rig can take. Three magazine pouches designed to carry three 5.56 mm 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 and fastex clip for versatility, so technically it's possible to carry AK magazines too (each mag pouch takes in one AK-type magazine). In addition, an NI radio can be attached to the left suspender with press studs.

The shoulder and waist straps can be adjusted quite freely, this rig fits anybody who's fit to fight.

Chestrigs are extremely well suited to be used with a patrol pack, as your backside is free of anything that might interfere with a rucksack.

Genuine Brit kit

Used, still perfectly serviceable. These might have some little nicks, like a missing velcro patch or something similar, but nothing out of the ordinary when it comes to used combat kit.

This is a very nice vest for its price. Materials are very tough (but worn), although not especially breathable as a result. Three magazine pouches, each able to hold either 3 AR-15 or 2 AK magazines (if you pull the buckles all the way out), and two big fat utility pouches on either side. The pouch lids all have both velcro and buckles. If you don't want to use velcro, you can cover up the hook side with the small swatches of loop that are stitched to the inside of each pouch. The map-pouch sewn into the backing is rubberized on the inside, and the backs of the two utility pouches are only stitched on by the sides and bottom, so you can shove more stuff in behind them from the top if you need to.



The straps have adequate padding, although I wouldn't call it luxurious. Mine was made in 1997; it has a guy's name (and a four-digit number) written on the back side. All in all a good vest. Be warned, though: it is anything but low profile. Very bulky.

AWESOME! Mine came brand spanking new. I mean 100% unused, tags are still shiny. This is the best chest rig I've seen for the money and a nice step up from the Chi-Com surplus that I'm also fond of. Adjusting the straps properly is also a bit tricky by yourself, but grab a buddy to help and it's no problem.
