Särmä TST Chestrig STD
The STD (as in "standard". not venearal diseases) is a chest rig in it's most common shape form. Single piece construction with internal map pouch, attachment points for small gear or hydration tubes on the shoulder straps. 4x14 PALS webbing, enough to carry most fighting loads.
The STD chest rig consists of a single base panel with 4x14 PALS webbing. The panel has a full size internal map pouch, closed with velcro along the top.
As this rig is designed for the Finnish user we've taken into account the fact that our RK magazines need more than the usual three rows high PALS matrix that most western chestrigs are based on. This rig is four rows high to work properly with the standard issue RK mag pouches, a good thing for anybody using Soviet AK based weapons tech.
The shoulder straps are comfortably wide, 40 mm, with 25 mm straps with PALS webbing running along the top for attachment of small gear. A waist strap keeps the rig from flopping about. All straps are generously adjustable to fit pretty much anybody who could effectively use a rig like this in the field.
Finnish MILSPEC materials
The SF Chestrig is made of the same materials (1000D Cordura, webbing) and hardware that are used in the production of the Finnish military M05 combat equipment. The side release buckles are made by ITW Nexus, these are made from Delrin, an extremely tough special plastic that is very reliable even in extreme cold.
