I will die for this brand idgaf

I am Shaw’s most ardent supporter I will be buried with all of their kit when I meet my eventual end. God bless.


Great fit! Unlike other chest rigs there’s room for adjustments you don’t get in the design. The material is quality and overall it’s a good liking piece that is well thought out..

Exceptional Modularity & Form Factor

Picked this up to create a better sustainment chest rig when paired with a FTT Kit Bag and have been extremely impressed. Shipped out quickly after purchase.

The chest rig is the most comfortable and functional chest rig around. I love that you can easily swap out placards for different operations.
