Just like the other tactical chest rigs available in the market, the pig chest rig plays a similar role except that it does come with additional features. These chest rigs are usually large, versatile and are reasonably priced.
The PIG UCR chest rig is among the best chest rigs available in the market. Based on the original Eagle Universal chest rig that was designed by Paul Howe. This classic combat kit comes with a combination of quality, versatility, toughness and simplicity.
The PIG chest rig has ample space for storage of additional ammo and mags. Each of the 4 large pouches has the capacity to hold 2×M4 mags or a 1×7.62 mag.
There are four additional pouches which are capable of holding double stack pistol mags, flashlights and knives. On the side of this combat kit, there are additional MOLLE that can be use to hold more pouches. These pouches are ideal for holding radio/phone, additional ammo or a first aid kit. Unlike other combat kits that rely on the hook and loop closures, the PIG chest rig takes advantage of the velcro design to keep your stuff well protected.
