    ya - i know

    the SO M4/AK rig carries 8 AR mags, while the Shihan is 9, plus 4 pistol mags - but if the price is even half of what i was going to pay for the 308 mini-rig, i might have to jump on it

    Hey Orca,

    What do you think of the Shihan rig, just from the pics, compaired to the SO rig?

    also - i asked a few questions from the man and here is the response:

    The rifle mag puches have a adjustable side retention system that some have tried to copy lately and you can use 2 AK mags, 2 .308 even 3 AR mas but it can be heavy or just one and you have zero battle rattle as it adjusts up or down.

    The entire rig is made of 100D Cordura which is also coated so you dont sweat through onto your mags. However the rig isnt designed to be wore tight and you will get some circulation.

    MrMC! Sorry for the delay. The Shihan looks great from the pics. Haven't seen 1 in person yet, but it looks to be built well. Price point is good too.

    I really like the H Harness system though. The cross back strap system tends to constrict under moderate loads. SOE does sell the H harness seperatly as well http://www.originalsoegear.com/hharness.html. Might be worth checking to see if the Shihan can take these too.

    I'm gonna throw another rig in the mix. The ATS Tactical Modular Chest Harness.

    update - after the order of Shihan rigs having to be sent back to the sewer because the antislip shoulder piece was not assembled correctly, they have arrived and shipped out to buyers today!

    should be here tomorrow!

    ok here are some pics of the Shihan chest rig loaded up with 12 loaded Pmags

    oddly enough it wasnt as heavy as i thought it would be - i am sure adding 4 loaded pistol mags will put it in line

    well the rig was designed to hold 2 AR or 2 AK or 2 .308 mags in each pouch so it can be used on any platform, it will also hold 2 AUG mags!

    i found because of the extra space i could squeeze an extra Pmag in each one

    most of the guys use the 4th pouch to hold their secondary weapon - but i have a belt hostler for that



    that being said - most likely the rig will head out the door with 8 loaded Pmags


    unless its the end of days and i am not coming back and cannot haul the extra loose ammo
