The South African Defence Forces Pattern 83 Chest Rig paved the way for more modern chest rig designs. It’s a timeless classic, simple as.

Simple in design but incredibly practical, the Pattern 83 rig features three velcro-closure magazine pouches that hold two magazines each as well as three smaller pouches. On the reverse side the rig also features an admin pouch for storing maps or other flat items.

These rigs were issued to the SADF until being discontinued in 2015. 

All of these rigs are in functional but used condition. They may have names, serial numbers and other personal information written on them in marker or pen.
