Built up another survival chest rig.


This one is built from 5.11 gear chest rig panel and 10" x 6" x 3" pouch, and a Tactical Tailor Pistol tether to ensure flashlight (SUREFIRE G2Z-LED) retention.


Its purpose (my purpose) is to carry the ESSENTIALS, to make said essentials READILY ACCESSIBLE, and to ensure 100% gear retention., and low profile for easy woods scrambling.


Modeled by me lovely girlfriend:


front view



flashlight / harness detail:




Benchmade/Snody ziptied to pouch. VERY accessible.





map pocket , behind main frame



big zipperpulls (i added these) for sure grip with thick mitts






back view, harness



side shot, rig worn low.

here is my insert, made from corrugated plastic sheet, industrial velcro. Everything is velcro'ed in to prevent rattling and loss.






Grimloc securing the Benchmade/Snody from releasing when i'm running. also holds the whistle



the insert makes the chest rig pouch rigid and non floppy

A nice job but i feel we need a before photo of the model including her head! The artical would bring me so much more viewing pleasure.


I am not sure about the inserts though, i can see they help with compartmentalising the load, maybe just try the one, worn next to the body.
