Chest carriers are an excellent load bearing concept. Not as cumbersome as a full vest, good balance characteristics, very stable during movement, and comfortable while seated in a vehicle. However, nearly all chest carrier designs are intended for military applications. If your operational profile doesn't include carrying 8-12 spare magazines, as well as additional sustainment gear, you often end up with a rig that's much bulkier than you need.
Law enforcement operations, whether conventionalor tactical, rarely call for such a load out. In Specter Gear experience, the standardlaw enforcement carbine ammo loadout is (4) 30 round magazines. (1) in theweapon and (3) spares.
With this loadout in mind, Specter Gear designed this chestcarrier specifically to meet law enforcement needs. Additionally, Specter Gear hasadded a good degree offlexibility and modularity so the carrier can be tailored for your specific needs,while at the same time providing you with a rig that's trim, compact,comfortable, and mission specific.
The magazine pouches feature adjustable flaps which allow either (3) 30 round 5.56mm magazines, (3) 20 round 7.62NATO type magazines, (3) 30 round AK-47 magazines or (6) 30 round 9mm SMG magazines to be carried in the magazine pouch assembly.
Two 2 slot accessory strips on each side of the magazine pouch assembly allow attachment of additional wrap around belt loop type duty belt pouches such as cuff pouches, OC pouches, radio holders, baton holders, flashlight pouches, etc. These pouches are available elsewhere in Specter Gear catalog.
The 2" wide unpadded adjustable shoulder straps distribute the load nicely, while minimizing bulk and interference with shouldering of the long gun.
The shoulder straps and back strap feature heavy duty side release buckles at all attachment points for rapid disengagement from the rig.
As with all of Specter Gear products, this item is made in the USA using only top quality materials and manufacturing procedures.
