British Northern Ireland chestrig, DPM, surplus
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.

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.
