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.
After more then over a year of excessive testing and using, I can finally sum up my thoughts and “longterm” test of the Crispi SAHARA EVO SRVV edition Boots, which are widely used and preferred by some of the Russian special forces like FSB, MVD and special police units like OMSN (formerly known as SOBR).
It’s been a while since I wanted to make a review on the 6b33 Personal Body Armor, but to be honest I lacked the time and several information I still wanted to gather and had to investigate. But, it was worth it, at least in my opinion
This year the IWA exhibition was the most exciting and best experience we had until now in Nuremberg’s huge exhibition halls. We met a lot of people we known via Email, YouTube or other Internet related channels of communication. We talked with a lot of exhibitors about upcoming and freshly released products.
I am really happy that I can finally review, or better said, show and present you one of my favorite items made by SSO/SPOSN. The Bober (Бобер = Beaver) assault backpack has become my constant companion in my daily life and on the weekend battlefields. It also displaced the “sack” like EastPak from my high school times I had used until now.
Well as I promised when I did the WE AK PMC and KWA CZ 75 Review back then in December ’12 and January ’13, here comes the (maybe?) long awaited conclusion or better said re-review of both mentioned GBB Rifle and Pistol…..
Once again after email correspondence with few exhibitors from this years IWA Exhibition and finally some free time, even if AGAIN, a bit late, I can proudly inform you about the new things and exhibitors we encountered. Sadly due to some SD-card issues we lost a lot of pictures 🙁
In my long hunt for a Kamysh BDU type Suit in my size (58/5) and in somehow “mint” or “new” condition, I finally stumbled upon this sweet and high quality Magellan made MPA-4 Summer Suit on the selling section of Red-Alliance.net Forums.
Did you ever wonder what russian Soldiers eats on the battlefield? Well, then you are welcome to take a culinary tour with me through the Daily Raition of the russian Military.
