Viper Chest Rig

Whatever style of airsoft you’re involved in, from the humble Sunday Skirmish to the most realistic of Military Simulations, there is one piece of kit that is an absolute ‘must have’ and that’s a way of carrying your ammunition!

It’s all very simple, stuffing spare magazines into the pockets of your cargo pants, but most of us want something just a little more user-friendly, and there are two simple options if you want to carry your ammo on your torso, a plate carrier or a chest rig. If you go for the out and out military look, then you’re probably going to want to run a plate carrier, which will let you set-up a modular system of pouches for magazines and equipment just the way you like it; this is also a great set-up for indoor ‘CQB’ use, as well as with some replica plates fitted it will offer you some protection against close range BB strikes.

As part of their ELITE range, Bedfordshire based VIPER have recently introduced the Special Ops Plate Carrier. This is a great looking bit of kit featuring their Lazer MOLLE webbing panels and some distinctive shock band shoulder strapping, which nicely mimics some of the ‘Gucci’ big-name brands out there at the moment. The carrier has three magazine compartments, a front chest admin compartment, and three robust webbing side panels. There are front and rear armour compartments that will accept smaller replica plates.

Bungee Jumping

It has Velcro sizing adjustment on the front, a bungee retention size adjuster on rear and fully adjustable padded shoulder straps, which makes it a ‘one size fits most’ affair. Internally, comfort is achieved with the use of padded Ventex, and external durability comes courtesy of the 600D Cordura, which is used throughout.

The Special Ops Plate Carrier is available in Green, Tan, Black and VIPER’s own V-CAM, which works very well with both MTP and Multicam, and with an SRP of £75.00 this is a lot of rig for the money!

If, however, you prefer to run a little more ‘Light is Right’, then a chest rig of some description is going to fit the bill perfectly; chest rigs are minimalist and lightweight, don’t overly restrict movement, and allow you to carry a good load of magazines. VIPER know all about chest rigs but I have to say that the new Special Ops version is one of the very best designs they’ve ever come up with!

With built-in quad mag capacity and numerous utility/pistol mag pouches, the Special Ops Chest Rig is capable of bearing a substantial load in a minimal design. This lowprofile set-up allows the rig to be worn beneath outer layers of clothing, like tactical jackets or smocks, and also allows great manoeuvrability in confined environments. Once again it’s a case of ‘One Size Fits Most’ as the rig is fully adjustable. The fitted pouch configuration features a four capacity mag sleeve, a GPS or small radio pouch, two pistol mag pouches (which can also be used to carry a multitool) and a Velcro ID Panel. All the straps are unpadded but wide enough to be comfortable even when under load, and durable, quick release buckles mean it’s easy to get on and off.

Big Ops Yourself

Although it’s made of super-durable 600D Cordura, the Special Ops Chest Rig weighs in at just 670g. It’s also available in Green, Tan, Black and V-CAM, and with an SRP in the region of just 30 quid, this is an absolute steal!

VIPER continue to roll-out gear in the ELITE range and it just keeps getting better and better. All their rigs, pouches and accessories are now available in the four colours listed above, and they’ve also introduced their most popular clothing items in multiple colourways as well. Whatever you need in relation to well-priced and serviceable tactical gear, VIPER really do have you covered!
