The BDS Tactical Advanced Plate Carrier Chest Rig is a fully customizable "Hybrid" Plate Carrier/Chest Rig system that provides the operator the ability to quickly configure their rig for individual mission specific needs. The Base Advanced Plate Carrier Chest Rig starts as a stand-alone carrier that can be upgraded utilizing interchangeable chest rig panels that are fully customizable. The front side of the carrier has 4 x 8 rows of PALS webbing for attaching BDS Tactical Modular Pouches. The top 2 rows of PALS webbing have loop fastener sewn onto the webbing for attaching ID Patches and name tapes. The back side of the carrier also had 7 x 8 rows of PALS webbing with loop fastener sewn to the top two rows. The back panel also features a drag handle which is sewn though the panel for strength. The rig sides panels that sit up against the body are padded with 1/4" closed cell foam for comfort. The Advanced Plate Carrier Chest Rig has shoulder pads with 1/2" closed cell foam and has 4 x 2 rows of PALS webbing, perfect for attaching our non slip butt stock retention pad, routing communication cables or attaching a single or double shoulder sling. The carrier also features an attachment strap that secures from the front side to the shoulder pads to prevent the shoulder pads from rolling over. The fully customizable basic chest rig panel features 4 x 18 rows of PALs webbing for attaching BDS tactical gear Modular Pouches. The body side of the chest rig panel has two side slots for the optional Side Plate Pouches (sold separately). This Modular Panel comes with a list of customizable upgrades.
