The (super awesome) Thing
I love this Thing! It's light, easy to work with, and comfy. I own an airlite chest rig, which is similar, but you cant easily mount a placard or even an abdominal pouch like the SS Sack. Fear not, The Thing PROVIDES. There is plenty of velcro space for a placard like the microfight or elastic ar placard as well as a slop for an abdominal pouch like the Sack. The integrated pouches on each side can fit rifle mags as well as radios or even a small IFAK bag, maybe a folded up map.. some snacks.. like a chocolate bar or taffy or one of those big chunky phones that let you snap pictures of that giant moon hologram that's projected at night ;) The main body is built out of some strong material similar to the polymer in the Ferro Concepts Bison belt or the Crye Avs 1000 pack frames, basically it's pretty neat stuff that seems quite durable and maintains rigidity while being flexible. The attachment points for a harness can turn to conform to your body, a very neat feature. I recommend the fat (H style) harness by SS, it's very comfy in that configuration.
