As promised in the last review, here is the chest rig review part II with the grandfather of all chest rigs, known as “ChiCom“. But there is more to this old sheet of canvas with pouches then it appears at first glance.
“Do I need a chest rig?” You have probably asked this already yourself at some point. I did and I do “need” one. But to be honest, only in terms of weight reduction (in comparison to a plate carrier). Also for the OPFOR roles in most games it is often not allowed to use some kind of plate carrier or body armor with harness, therefore chest rigs are more suitable – and in my opinion a lot more comfortable to wear. Not to forget some other perks.
While searching Ebay for Soviet/Russian gear, I stumbled over this ancient night vision. Neither did I recognize it, nor was able to find anything about it on the Web.
So it was clear what to do: Buy it! 🙂
People kept asking me whether that is a WE TT33 or KWA TT-33. Strangely enough, many did not know that the SRC TT-33 even exist and quite a lot did not even know SRC.
While SRC certainly is one of the smaller companies, it gained a rather good reputation in the recent past. While their early models where not all that great, they now offer decent Airsofts for a reasonable price. And the SRC TT-33 is no exception.
