To say I’m impressed is an understatement. I’m the kind of person that studies a lot before I spend my money on something. I studied many chest rigs, I wanted something minimal. I went back and forth between this and an AO Chest Rig. I finally pulled the trigger and bought this. It is amazing. It’s minimalist, and very modular. Not only can it be worn as a chest rig, but it can be worn as a bandolier if needed with the back straps. Impressive. Bravo guys.
The Micro Fight Chest Rig Mk4 is designed to be extremely efficient, modular, and lightweight. The Micro Fight works seamlessly with our accessories suite, which offers nearly endless configurations. The Micro Fight features soft loop Velcro in both pockets to enable you to put mission essential items where you want them based on your individual needs. The improved profile allows for the use of six 5.56 x .45 style magazines or four 7.62 x .51 magazines or any combination of rifle and pistol magazines. The 5” x 9” field of hard loop Velcro on the back of the rig allows for solid integration with accessories, such as the SACK Pouch or Expander Wings. The larger Velcro field also allows a solid integration onto plate carriers, such as the LV119. In addition to the larger Velcro field, the MK 4 also allows for sub load integration of a tourniquet utilizing the two integrated grommets and our Universal Retention Kit.
The Micro Fight Chest Rig sports a host of accessories like no other system. The user can select from any of our accessories to meet operational requirements. The platform is lightweight and small while still allowing you to carry multiple types of munitions and equipment. Examples include rifle and pistol Magazines, 37/40mm grenades, flash-bangs, multi-tools, flashlights, medical supplies, and breaching equipment.
Stand Alone System
The Micro Fight Chest Rig was designed to perform as a stand-alone system. It can be configured for wear in low visibility environments that require minimal printing through clothing with maximum equipment storage. It can also be configured for high visibility operations where a full spectrum of equipment is required.
The Micro Fight Chest Rig was designed to work seamlessly as a "Placard" for plate carrier systems. Simply remove the 1 inch side release buckles and attach the system via the hard loop Velcro located on the back of the system to you plate carrier. This configuration allows for profile expansion or reduction as mission requirements change.
NOTE: The CHASSIS is part of the Micro Fight Chest Rig System. This item does not include shoulder straps, back strap, half or full flaps, magazine inserts, or any other accessories. Additional components are required for proper use. If running as a stand-alone system, shoulder straps, back strap, magazine inserts, and possibly full or half flaps are needed. If running on a plate carrier, flap(s), and magazine insert(s) are needed.

I love the MK4 for several reasons. It is a very capable system while still being a minimalist type design. With a larger setup it's very easy to overload yourself just because you have the room. With this rig it helps keep you to the essentials. I also love how modular it is. Your not tied down to what is out of the package but you have a few options to configure it the way you want.
Innovative, compact design holds everything you need in place with great retention. Easy to change up the load out without having to unweave and reinstall pals pouches. Excellent piece of kit for your plate carrier for what ever mission you have! If you are LE and carry a taser, may I recommend a Zero 9 taser holster. Slap some Velcro on the outside of it and install it in your micro fight chest rig. Perfect fit!
Yes, getting the rig with all the trimmings might be pricey. I would say that is the only con to choosing this. But you get what you paid for. The modularity is out of this world, I'm blown away. That, and the fact it all comes in MC Tropic
Great quality. This product is by far one of the best micro rigs on the market. I'm really impressed with it and would recommend it to anyone that's in the market for a micro rig setup. I'm currently running it through hell and its holding up great.
I've had several microfights over the last few years and now they are all set up for different dedicated purposes (carbine, subgun, etc) and what i love the most is the adaptability. Whatever theater i'm working in, or stateside, I can tailor the microlight to exactly what I need and between running it as a placard or standalone chest rig it finds a purpose perfectly in every task I need on the body storage or for a quick access grab and go setup.
I've always had an admin pouch slapped onto a triple mag pouch on the front of my Army-issued plate carrier/IOTV. This little beauty combines both of those into one small system. To mount it I just took the side buckles off, tucked the top ones behind it, and zip-tied the side loops right to my MOLLE. Works like a charm and doesn't move or bounce around. Even got my commander to order one ;)
I have experience with haley strategic chest rigs and many other light weight molly chest rigs and I have to say by far the spiritus chest rig is my favorite.
I was deciding between Spiritus and Ferro and due to cost went with Ferro first.... Once receiving their rig I knew I made a huge mistake and was nothing but frustrated with it, I returned it and invested in the Spiritus and could not be happier with spending a little extra coin. The design behind this rig is superior to anything else I have used. You have all the customization options you could want and I love that it isn't massive. Your rig should not be cumbersome and constantly in the way, and this couldn't do a better job of having a small footprint all while having everything I need and nothing I don't. The fat straps are great and distribute the weight well, they don't cut into your neck, or fall off - they stay put. The stitching and construction is rock solid, this thing is not falling apart anytime soon. The velcro is not cheap - that stuff holds on really tight to whatever you put there, whether it be the insert mag pouches or something on the outside. Stop thinking about it and invest in the Spiritus Rig - you wont regret it.
Spiritus is a great company with great gear and better customer service. The only con of note is the thickness of the chassis when fully loaded on a plate carrier. With that being said if you don't over load your gear and shove a bunch of nonessential gear into it the chassis has the perfect profile. That's it. It's not even a true con. If you don't like Spiritus's elastic retention system get a kydex insert. There is no reason to not run this as a standalone system or a placard.
My initial impressions upon recieving this rig are, "this thing is light and tiny". I have a Haley D3CRX, which comes with 4 rifle and 4 pistol mag pouches, with 2 general purpose pouches. Throughout my ownership of the HSP rig, i found that i never needed the amount of mags the rig could hold. I found that I'd use the rifle mags and general pouches for storage but never the pistol since i wear a duty belt. Full disclosure, I'm a civilian, this gets used for training, and working armed at events. Now for the MK4, i have yet to use it. However, I am impressed with the construction and selection in materials. It really contributes to how light weight this rig is. Without knowing the exact makeup, the rig appears to be made from 500D cordura (which is strong enough for 99% of applications without the weight). It has double and quadruple stitching in high stress areas. The buckles also appear to be high strength and it's really hard to see but appear to be box stitched to the rig. I can tell just looking over the rig, that high strength and aesthetics were very important while maintaining low weight. The order in assembly was clearly thought out as it actually conceals the amount of threads on this rig. Needless to say, I am impressed by Spiritus Systems. This is not my first piece of kit, but it is my first piece from them. I look forward to trying more products from them in the future! The setup ordered is: MK4 MC Black, double pistol, triple rifle, tq holder. Still need to add: Full flap, wings for radio, maybe another double pistol.
Very cool and comfortable rigs.
