Specops Brand AK Magazine Chest Harness
New from Specops Brand this Chest harness is the answer to troops, survivors, and security personnel who opt for the AK as their personal weapon. Several news reports coming out of Iraq and Afghanistan tell of US troops using captured AKs in the rugged desert environments. What is usually lacking is a good quality option for carrying spare magazines - until now.
The chest harness is as rugged and carries the same warranty is the rest of the Specops brand product line. Something that has been lacking on a gear market that seems dominated by cheaply made imports from Russia and very costly (albeit high quality) limited production custom gear. Four pouches hold two AK-47 or AK 74 30 shot magazines each while a fifth pouch is adjustable for most small to medium sized radios and seems to be a perfect fit for the 2-meter types used by various government contractors and well equipped survival groups. The pouches are large enough to fit the 40 shot magazines used with the HK93. The straps inside each pouch can be adjusted to fit shorter mags without "burying" them down inside the pouch. This feature mags the chest rig extremely versatile for use with a wide variety of assault rifles.
One major advantage of this chest rig is that the strap system itself is fairly simple; just one set of "X" straps and one set of optional use quick release belt tie downs at the front. A user can quietly don the chest rig within seconds since it is not necessary to snap or zip anything to put it on or take it off. Another major advantage is that it will not interfere with sitting in a vehicle the way conventional webgear or tactical vests usually do. The shoulder straps are lightly padded as seen here.
Another interesting feature is the system of straps inside the magazine pouches. As you insert a magazine into the pouch, a wide web strap is pushed into the pocket. The end of the strap has Velcro that will attach just outside the pocket, underneath the fastex buckles. Rather than picking the magazine out with your fingers or using a magpul, you can simply tug on the strap to lift the magazine out of the pouch. Once the magazine is far out enough for you to grab it, you simply grasp it as you would to insert it into the rifle.
The AK chest rig carries the same limited lifetime warranty as all other Specops Brand gear repair or replacement for no more than the cost of sending it back. Available in Olive Drab, Woodland Camo, Black, and Desert Tan. Cost is $90 each. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org to order
