The timeless classic!
All modern chestrigs/recon harnesses hail from the chicom and its derivates. The legendary Chicom chestrig. Made famous during the Vietnam war, but the rule that "where there is an AK, there is also a Chicom chestrig" holds true still today.
Based on asian design, this rig was available in many designs, for AK/SKS, with or or without holder for "potato mashers" or canteen/bayonett frogs. One thing al chicoms had in common was their simplicity in design and their rugged quality. Nearly all chicoms were fight-load-carriers only, with no space "wasted" for existence-load.
Miltec's version is by far the most common and is still used all over the world. It bears three magazine pouches for 3 AK mags and 4 general purpose pouches. They can fit small items like small radios, extra BBs, etc.
Made of thick green canvas, with wooden toggle closure on the pouches, adjustable shoulder straps and tie-strings at the waist. Excellent, simple and silent design.
