The Mission Configurable Chest Rig (MCCR) was designed with modularity in mind. This lightweight, versatile system can be run as a stand-alone chest rig (MCCR), or as a placard (MCP). The MCCR/MCP can be built to meet a wide range of operational requirements through the utilization of a host of accessory options including: 7 different magazine inserts, 2 radio inserts, MOLLE Side Flaps, a Kangaroo Zipper Top, and a Lower Abdomen Pouch.

The body is 10.5” long, 7” tall, 6.8oz and features: 5 rows of 6 column MOLLE, a kangaroo pouch for magazine inserts or the Kangaroo Zipper Top, a built-in map pocket, side envelope pockets to add radio inserts or MOLLE side flaps, and a bottom envelope pocket to add a Lower Abdomen Pouch. All pockets are secured with hook and loop VELCRO® brand closures.

The kangaroo pouch can hold the Double Pistol Insert and Double 5.56 Insert simultaneously or the Triple 5.56 Kydex Insert, Triple 5.56 Insert, Double 5.56 Insert, Double 7.62 Kydex Insert, Double 7.62 Insert, Quad MPX Insert, Double Pistol Insert, or the Kangaroo Zipper Top (in size small) solo.

Two MOLLE side flaps come standard with the MCCR to add two extra rows of storage capability. The MOLLE side flaps VELCRO® directly into the side envelop pockets. To increase versatility, you can also utilize one of the two radio insert accessories in place of the MOLLE side flaps: Side Flap Radio Pouch Motorola APEX and Side Flap Radio Pouch 148-152s.

Comfort is key, the MCCR harness comes with padded shoulder sleeves made of a stretch woven material. The material allows enough elasticity to permit room for cable/hydration tube routing and adds comfort while still maintaining a low-profile design. The harness features a 4 row x 4 column MOLLE panel for antenna relocation routing, hanging a hydration bladder pouch or additional accessories. The harness can be adjusted for 6” of height by moving the front ITW QASM Buckles vertically in the provided sewn slots.

To increase versatility the Mission Configurable Chest Rig (MCCR) can be easily converted into the Mission Configurable Placard using the Velocity Systems SwiftClip® System.  Simply remove the four 1″ split bar side release buckles and attach the placard to the front of your plate carrier by clipping in the two upward facing male buckles and attaching the hook VELCRO® on the back of the placard to the loop VELCRO® on the front of the carrier.

Note: The MCCR and MCP do not come with magazine inserts, radio inserts, the Kangaroo Zipper Top, the Lower Abdomen Pouch, or any other accessories. Some of these additional accessories are needed for operational requirements. Some images display optional accessories that are sold separately. The Mission Configurable Chest Rig (MCCR) comes with a harness, a waist strap, and MOLLE side flaps only. The Mission Configurable Placard (MCP) comes with side flaps only.

New Caddy and Rangefinder Pouch Offers Maximum Protection and Easy Access

OVERLAND PARK, Kan. – January 6, 2022 – Bushnell®, an industry leader in performance optics, announces the introduction of its Vault® Bino Harness System. The new Vault offers hunters and shooters effective and convenient protection for their optics in a compact design that doesn’t restrict movement in the field.

Packed with the features serious outdoorsmen and women need most in the field, the Vault has a compact, modular design that makes protecting and accessing your optics easy. A quiet magnetic closure gives you fast, one-handed access to your glass. The top closure completely covers the top of the caddy, protecting your binoculars from dust and moisture, plus it opens towards the front so the closure doesn’t get in the way while retrieving your glass.

Inside, the bino caddy features a water-resistant, soft lining that cuts down on noise and protects your objective lenses. The caddy fits up to 12×50 roof prism binoculars and can be adapted to fit smaller binos with an included riser that sits in the bottom of the pouch. Mesh pockets on the sides of the caddy are a handy place to stash mouth calls or wind checker bottles, while a zippered pocket on the back of the caddy can hold a smartphone or your tag. MOLLE webbing on the bottom of the caddy allows users to attach a handgun or bear spray holster.

Overall, the caddy is designed to be low-profile and compact so it doesn’t interfere with movement. The integrated, ultralight harness is comfortable and easy to attach and detach with the built-in buckles. Users can also detach the caddy and use the standalone harness with their binoculars.

The laser rangefinder pouch (sold separately) is constructed with the same fabric and magnetic closure as the bino caddy, and it attaches to the side of the caddy using three simple U-shaped clips. This gives users easy access to their laser rangefinder, and an integrated tether prevents them from losing it in the field.

The feature-packed Vault bino harness system has an MSRP of $69.99. The laser rangefinder pouch has an MSRP of $29.99. To learn more about these products or to see the full lineup of Bushnell optics and gear, check out Bushnell.com.
