ARIES OUTDOOR Hybrid MP9 chestrig by Dudek [ENG]
The story of this rig begins some months ago when in a spurt of insanity I bought KWA MP9 replica with some spare mags. It was after a while I noticed there are no rigs designed specially for MP9 used as a primary weapon.
Thus the only logical step was to contact a tactical tailor from kamizelki.prv.pl and simply start the project.
The first guy who contacted me was Wuki, the founder and owner of Aries OutDoor, and because I was impressed by his work I decided to give him a try.
The final idea of the MP9 rig has developed throughout a couple of weeks due to my lack of decision making or too many ideas of what I’d like to have on my rig.
Four m4 shingle pouches, as in micro rig, were replaced by four palsless MP9 magazine pouches, each fastened with a Velcro flap.
Due to the size of MP9 magazine being narrower than AR15, I managed to have some free space on either sides, where I could put any pouch which is not wider than 2 pals rows. Perfect place to fit two pistol magazine pouches for my speedloaders and a micromedic pouch.
Original Chestrig MiniCR has flat shoulder straps thus I decided to use the ones from battle rig. The straps are padded and give great comfort while skirmishing. Each strap has rubber loops to secure radiowires or hydration tube. Additionally they have a space to mount a small pouch.
Shoulder straps can be used in H or X configuration. Just pick your favourite and go.
The waist strap has rubber loops on either sides. The strap is thin but comfortable.
The whole rig has an internal map netted pouch suitable to carry maps or other flat objects.
AriesOutDoor uses the best materials available on the market. The rig is made from cordura 560dtex in ranger green, buckles are ITW Nexus or Duraflex, Velcro by Paiho, Pasamon poliamid tapes.
Perfect sewing, top-notch stitching. I just can’t find any flaws on this piece of gear. I am absolutely happy!
The price. Well, it’s custom made gear so the money you pay depends on materials used and ideas incorporated. Nonetheless, it’s worth every penny.
