NcStar AR-15 M16 Type Chest Rig - OD Green

6 Customer Reviews

"INFO: 6' 2" 185lbs 34" waist. Wearing shorts and t-shirt when I tried it on.I have 2 mags in the rig and an HPA tank in the hydration pouch. Shooting a Valken V12 Optima BLOCK II with crane stock.

- Very maneuverable. I like it better than the plate carriers.
- A lot of MOLLE for extra pouches. I added an admin pouch in front.
- Pretty solid construction. I saw a few videos of cracked buckles after 6mo of use, but you can always replace and re-sew.
- Velcro strap holders on all adjustable straps.
- Large hydration pouch. I have a 48cc in tank with plenty of space. 42" hose (routed under armpit) reaches rifle comfortably.
- Fits snug with tank and mags in with waist straps fully tightened.
- Sits and feels well in standing, crouched, and prone firing positions.

- Mag pouches are difficult to put mags in. I untied the retention strings and took out the nylon stoppers. After retying, mags fit in well and stay in place.

"This is for a fast skirmish game. It is lightweight and very breathable because it is a more open vest/chest rig. It is just a tad loose on skinnier people, but as long as you have mags in and the camel back in you're fine, it fits nice n' snug. So if you are looking for a fast pace build, you'll get it with this.
-Plenty of MOLLE (not a lot, but enough to be happy)
-The bladder carrier is VERY nice to have (no water bottles needed!)
-Mags fit just right for me, and I use this for an actual AR most of the time. And if they don't fit, adjust the little strings on the mag holders.
-Made of good quality material, doesn't tear or rip easily.
-Can sit loose on smaller people, and bounce around when running.
-Doesn't come with actual camel back. :(

"First, this rig would've gotten 5 stars if the straps had been able the tighten up the rig a little more. The common complaint that the rig sits loose isn't unfounded. I'm 6' and 185 lbs, pretty much a medium build and not fat, and had the problem a lot of the other reviewers had.

That being said, get some 550 paracord, loop the straps to get some of the slack out, and braid the paracord through the loops you put in the straps and the Molle on the side and back of the rig, you can get this thing to fit perfectly.

Besides the fitting issue (which can be corrected), the actual design itself is great, everything is easy to get to, and if you always run a hydration carrier (which I never leave home without), this chest rig is very low profile and pretty durable.

If NCStar tinkers with the dimensions of this chest rig to allow resizing to be easier, it'd be perfect.

"Not a bad vest color is great light weight comes with mag pouches which is great!
Mag Pouches
Camal Back
Very breathable

This will not fit fit everyone! I am 5 10 150 lbs and is very loose on me :(

"Great piece, it fits a medium to heavy size build better but itll get the job done all around. mags in pouches can be a pain to remove when reloading. molle seems good, must buy a hydration pouch though. Protects small parts of chest and lightweight for run and gun play.
hydration system ready
Size is more for medium build
Mags can get stuck in pouches

overall great vest for price
