PILGRIM – TACSAC Covert Chest Rig


UK-based PILGRIM has developed what they call the TACSAC Covert Chest Rig. Designed to appear and function as a vehicle go bag, the TACSAC can quickly transform into a Chest Rig by releasing and pulling down zip pulls on the bag. The loose flaps fold behind the bag and secure with Velcro.


With the contents of the bag secured to the webbing, it can also be used as a general purpose bag. It’s also small enough to fit within a vehicle footwell for quick access if the vehicle comes under contact.

PILGRIM states the TACSAC can be made in any color or material to help break up the profile of the end user. The TACSAC has recently been made in Black, Coyote Tan, and MultiCam.

    That is actually really bad ass.

    I think it would be more practical to simply attach the mags to the inside of a messenger bag. I know that when I get caught in those unfortunate sustained firefights that so regularly interupt my afternoon shopping I wouldent want to waste the extra 5 seconds folding velcro flaps.

      It’s not just a car bag, its also a platform to work from. Designed in mind to allow covert method of entry, tech survailance and EOD operators discreetly carry their tools onto target.
      Used as a chest rig, allows tech operators to work from the chest rather than reaching around for tools in procarious positions.

    Wow, what a great site, thanks SSD?

  4. Brett says:

    That looks quit useful!

  5. Kord says:

    That’s an amazing design that bridges storage, transport, and function. … wish I had thought of it. I would like to see the back side of it.

    • Pilgrim says:

      We’ll upload a picture of the back to our pilgrim FB page, hope LIKE our page and please share.

    at first I thought this was just going to be another “sneaky bag” but I’m very impressed by the execution.

    kudos for not putting MOLLE on the outside.

    • Ben says:

      Thanks Luke

      • badjujuu says:

        Any other colors coming in future? (gray etc)
        I second the “no molle on outside”

        • Ben says:

          Badjujuu, I hope this answers your question:

          The bag can be made in a variety of colours, materials and hardware to help break up the profile of the team. This is gonna be subject to MOQ if its for contract or positive public feed back.

          The bag was originally built for contract in Black and Coyote tan with M/C.
          We have only recently gone public with it.

            Have you thought about marketing this as a camera bag? That would be a neat platform if there is room to carry a full size SLR. The mag pouches could be used to carry extra lenses…they would be in a handy position for quick lens changes. and I’m sure there’s room for other accessories.

    It’s where I keep all my things. I get a lot of compliments on this. Plus it’s not a purse, it’s called a satchel. Indiana Jones wears one.

      And I take any and all advice (except hats) from people who punch Nazis in the face.

    • Mike D says:

      Indiana Jones wears a Gas Mask Bag…

        An anachronistic MkVII to be exact

        • Mike D says:

          Glad to see someone other than myself knows what an anachronism is! Pretty sure many people will have to google that word to understand what we are talking about.

    Follow the link, go to products, then pull up the catalog, there is a close-up shot of the TACSAC with only the top flap opened.

  9. PLATATAC says:

    Nice idea, its been done before though. We made a very, very, very similar bag for some customers here and abroad.

  10. Bill says:

    It’d be a great active shooter kit for LE. The interiors of cop cars are so dirty and cluttered that I, and a fair number of other guys, carry theirs in duffles or other bags, just to keep them relatively undamaged and unstolen. I don’t want my mags covered with the goo from damp fusees or tweaker barf.

  11. Ronny says:

    One among many nice products, and I love the catalog views of Pen Y Fan / Corn Du and the trails up there (which I guess should have been expected with the company name and website adress). Just might have to order me some pilgrim stuff sent to Sweden.
