The Wasp Rig is a chest rig designed by Gadsden Dynamics in collaboration with Rockcastle Shooting Center trainer Justin Vititoe. Many of the chest rigs that Gadsden Dynamics makes are designed to be slick and low-profile enough to conceal and the Wasp Rig is no different. It draws much of its design from their Underground Partisan Chest Rig but adds a number of additional features.
This chest rig features a single open top AR-15 magazine pouch, two open top double stack pistol magazine pouches, and an admin pouch that can also be used as a med pouch. Gadsden Dynamics also includes a single column of PALS webbing that can be used for attaching a pouch or securing items like chemlights, tourniquets, and flashlights.
The harness is unique to Gadsden Dynamics. It consists of a “Y” shoulder harness that meets at the center back of a single lat belt. This design should be to be easy to don quickly since the user need only worry about a single buckle on the lat belt once the harness is adjusted to fit.
The Wasp Chest Rig is available in two versions, the Wasp Rig and the Enhanced Wasp Rig. The only difference is that the Enhanced Wasp Rig allows the user to remove all of the pouches from the harness via a single Velcro panel. This opens up a number of concealment options or even attaching the panel directly to a plate carrier.
