This week we are taking a look at the FirstSpear Recce Rig. I’ve got to say that I am a big fan of Chest rigs having used an Arktis Model 42 Rig while stationed in 3ID LRS back in the late 80s and later wearing an Eagle SF30 AK rig in Haiti in the mid-90s while on a SOT-A in 3rd Group. Something neither of those designs offered was modularity. The Padded Split Front Recce Rig, 6/12 moves the load from the waist up unto the chest on 6/9 body panels that ride left and right and accept PALS and 6/9 equipped pouches meaning you can completely customize your load.
The split-front front closes via two short TUBES attachments and incorporates a Velcro closure on the sides allowing you to stash needed items inside the body of the rig. The padded shoulder harness features a flat, H-style cross piece at the rear for comfort. The rear of the waist is held fast via a simple, 1″ webbing strap that is releasable and adjustable at either end.
Berry compliant and offered in Black, Coyote, Ranger Green and MultiCam.
