This chest rig is a modernized version of the classic "Chicom" Type 56 design. For decades the original Chicom rigs have been arguably the best AK chest rigs around. They are simple and rugged just like the rife they caddy for. The major drawback to the old rigs was the lack of modern features and materials.
Our Type 56M uses bungie/button closures on the magazine pouches making them much easier to access than the original. Made from 500D cordura, it is lighter, stronger and more water resistant as well. We have added MOLLE webbing on the wings of the rig, perfect for attaching a radio or IFAK pouch. A velcro panel integrated to the back of the chest rig makes it compatible with all dangler pouches.
