It’s here! It’s finally here! The chest rig that I have been hoping Blue Force Gear (BFG) would make since I first laid eyes on RACKminus is now available and it’s called the Micro Rack. As you might have guessed by the name, the Micro Rack is essentially a compact version of BFG’s RACKminus.
Like the RACKminus, the Micro Rack features BFG’s MOLLEminus technology. BFG uses a series of slots and voids to create a MOLLE compatible matrix rather than the typical webbing on backing design used on most chest rigs. This, coupled with the compact 6 column by 3 row dimensions of the Micro Rack keep its weight to minimum.
Don’t let the light weight fool you into thinking this rig can’t take abuse. It is made from BFG’s durable ULTRAcomp laminate material and its nearly stitch free construction removes many potential failure points.
The cherry on top is that the Micro Rig’s top buckles are spaced to work with Mayflower R&C/Velocity Systems’ plate carriers so you can use it as a stand alone chest rig or a very light weight panel to dock on your plate carrier.
