Almost 5 stars but...By: Jean-Michel T on 6 January 2019I will start with the good: quality material put together very well. The rig is basically bulletproof in its construction with its super tough sewing. Lots of room to accomodate all pouches. Platform is very stable thanks to 2 buckles on each side. Now the reasons it only got 4 stars: - you cannot put this chest righ on by yourself unless you work for Cirque du Soleil. You will need someone to clip those buckles and adjust them properly. This is especially true if you use it as a plate carrier. Plate carrier capacity: although it works, it is not ideal. In order to wear your plates properly, you will need a buddy to help you put it on and tight it down. Too tight, you wont breath when running, too loose, plates will bounce around and not protect you as much. Plates: if you wear stand alone plates, they will be right against your bosy causing some discomfort. Wearing soft plate backing or soft armor vest will make it feel better. But wearing it with plates only feels like wearing a poorly adjusted JPC. Although it is a great rig in all aspect, do not buy it as a dedicated Plate Carrier. Buy it as a great chest rig/fighting rig and you will give it 5 stars. SORD makes some of the toughest gear I have ever used in my career and all their products is quality. Pick what you need and abuse it, it can take it !
Old schoolBy: Will Tutt on 1 February 2017When I got to my bn out of IETs pretty much every seco had this rig. So naturally I bought one. Bloody good bit of kit. Since then I've had 2 other battle bras, both better than this, but this is the classic. Great starting point for new guys to work out how they wanna run their gear, and plenty of old boys still run em too. Probably could use some lighter fabric IOT stay competitive in today's market.
