A lightweight and simple chestrig to carry your most important fighting kit. Made entirely out of webbing, making the rig extremely rugged and breathable.

The vest base is made from 25 mm webbing in two layers, sewn onto eachother to form a 12 channels wide PALS matrix. Pouches attach to the webbing just as securely as onto a traditional fabric backed vest, but the empty spots are only webbing and empty holes, making this design more breathable than a traditional chestrig.

As this rig is made for the Finnish market 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 based weapons tech.

The shoulder straps are comfortably wide, 50 mm, and end in 25 mm straps that attach onto the vest base cornes with side release buckles. 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

Made entirely of the same materials and hardware that are used in the production of Finnish army M05 combat equipment, strong webbing and ITW Nexus buckles, all NIR compliant naturally.

I have used this ULW Chest Rig for a year or so now.
It's very light and handy. It often bring it along on exercises as an extra (and smaller) rig, so I can have a decent fighting load on me without being fully kitted out in a full-blown combat vest. I have also used it as my only rig, and it works just fine for that too.

The 12 rows of PALS is just enough for a light fighting load.

I carry 4-6 NATO magazines, a decent size IFAK, a general purpose pouch, and the rig sits just fine without any sagging at all.

The straps can be a bit fiddly to get on without twisting on your back, at least until you get used to it. It's no big deal. I find it better to fiddle for a moment with a simple webbing strap, than having great, big silly padded straps.

I own the bigger 2-piece Särma Chest Rig also, and I prefer this ULW version because there is no wasted space on the front (where the 2-piece rig has the buckles.)

This is a great piece of kit for the money.

Overall this is an excellent chest rig. There are absolutely no unnecessary features and at this price point the quality of the build and materials is excellent.

I have a couple of thoughts on what could improve this for me however:
1) The rig could do with two more columns of PALs (one more on each side). This way, you could mount 5 mag pouches (2wx3h) and a utility pouch (3wx3h) without a need for double stacking. Without the utility pouch you could then also fit 6 mag pouches, right now you can't.
2) The shoulder strap PALs rows in the new version are very useful, but could be improved if a few of them could be 2 wide to fit small things 2x2 things like radio pouches.

A fantastic product in general though!
