The series you choose makes no difference: SEAL Team, SIX, Stricke Back... The movies you watch: Zero Dark Thirty, Act of Valor, Lone Survivor... The special forces units that you follow... the debate is on. Plate carrier or chest rig?
For some time, EmersonGear has offered us endless possibilities when it comes to equipping ourselves, from new product lines with qualities and prices for all budgets, such as these panels that enable us to couple them to our plate carriers so that we can use them as chest rigs. Oh! And EmersonGear is the brand of clothes they wear in some of the aforementioned TV shows.
Emersongear LV Placard 5.56 Triple magazine panel
This is the chest rig/panels with the simplest design out of the three reviewed in this article. Part of the Spiritus Systems Placard 5.56 X .45 panel base. This panel is designed to offer greater retention for magazines and other accessories.
Thanks to the use of elastic bands, it allows the pockets to expand and the magazines to come out much easier, although to put them back in we will need a little more patience, so we recommend that after emptying each magazine you put them in a drop pouch instead of reinserting them here.
Unlike other elastic panels or pouches on the market, this model has elastic loops at the base of each one to maximize flexibility and eliminate the “birthing” effect by not narrowing the bottom of the pouch.
