Quick Overview

Based on our original VM rig with user feedback, the VM load bearing chest rig features a large zipper with grip tab provides easy donning with or without armour. Because of the low profile nature of the design, it allows maximum airflow for use tropical or desert environments. 


With direct end-user feedback for a specific tropical environment lightweight platform, we've improved on our standard MOLLE VM by adding 4x double 5.56 magazine pouches with additional smaller front pouches for batteries and other similar sized items. 3 of the magazine pouches have double closure (clip with hook and loop) and 1 with a single closure method of hook and loop. It is also lightweight and low profile making it a very good platform for mounted operations and allows the lowest possible profile when unzipped and lying prone. 


The rig also has the capability to quickly attach to armour carriers with use of our Chicom Clip Set.


Hidden mesh pockets on rear of rig allow the user to quickly to dump empty magazines; they can also be used to quickly store items like GPS, maps or similar sized items.


On either side of the magazine pouches are 2 accessory pouches design to hold either a 1L flask or a AN/PRC-152 Multiband Handheld Radio with room for small items like gloves ect. 


The rig includes straps and designed to work with our other Chicom harnesses.

The VM load-bearing chest rig is an ambidextrous general-purpose, no-frills, load carriage solution designed with flexibility and ease of use in mind. It is designed to work as standalone or mounted to a plate carrier via quick release ITW clips. It features a large zipper in the middle for easy donning and doffing with or without armour.

The VM rig has a large carrying capacity with four double 5.56 magazine pouches with additional smaller front pouches for batteries/similar sized items. Three of the magazine pouches have double closure (Fastex clip with hook and loop) and one with a single closure method of hook and loop, all features 25mm elastic outer retention. The flaps on the mag pouches can be extended or tucked away to carry AK mags or store a small medkit, a pistol or smoke grenade. 
On the extreme ends of the magazine pouches is a zippered utility pouch designed to hold either a Platatac 1L flask or AN/PRC-152 Multiband Handheld Radio in the smaller open-top inside pocket with bungee retention. Each side pouch features a smaller zippered admin pouch on the front for items like head torches, gloves, cam kits etc. and a small PALS field either side to attach MOLLE pouches. The VM rig also features 2 large mesh pockets on the rear of rig allow the user to store things like a GRG, maps, marker panels or similar sized items.
The low profile and compact/close to wearer nature with a large carrying capacity make this an excellent standalone platform for patrolling and mounted operations and allows the lowest possible profile when unzipped and lying prone if in a marksman role. The 50mm wide adjustable Chicom low profile shoulder straps are flat sewn and designed to remain as flat as possible for use with packs or over armour systems.
