Guest Review – Whiskey Two-Four Ultralight 8×3 Split Panel

Recently released from Whiskey Two-Four is their Ultralight 8×3 Split Panel chest rig. Like previous rigs the Split Panel is laser-cut from a sheet of Hypalon and loops are stitched along the edges. These loops are the perfect place to attach the buckles of their improved Universal Chest Rig Harness or to simply tie it down to the outside of a pack. Like many chest rigs on the market it will buckle perfectly into plate carriers and other vests with buckles on the chest and the addition of a Velocity Systems Swift Clip kit makes for a perfect way to retain the sides. The rig itself weighs nearly nothing, is ultra-strong, and will not hold water; all properties drawn from the use of Hypalon.

Mixing and matching your favorite pouches makes for endless rig combinations, as well as breathing new life into old disused pouches. Each side of the panel gives you 4 vertical columns and 3 horizontal rows to work with and is joined by two 1″ buckles. The ability to run a slick carrier and quickly switch load carriage by mission profile or personal preference makes WTF’s platforms a strong, light and compact solution. I’ve found the Split-front to be an especially awesome addition to the straps of a Grey Ghost Gear Lightweight Assault Pack or Haley Strategic D3 Flat Pack as a way to add additional storage up front where it counts.
