I’m such a sucker for modernized classic gear. Parashooter Gear’s Type 56M and Type 81M are instantly recognizable as classic Type 56 and Type 81 chest rigs but with modern materials, modern color options, and modern functionality.
Both chest rigs are made from 500D Cordura Nylon and are available in a variety of colors. They feature flap covered pouches with Parashooter Gear’s cleverly simple bungee and button closure. The Type 56M and Type 81M chest rigs remove the small general-purpose pouches of the originals in favor of PALS webbing so the end-user can use their own pouches.
Both chest rigs come with a simple 1″ webbing X-harness. An optional, upgraded H-harness is also available.
