A classic is reborn. SKD is reintroducing the Universal Chest Rig under their in house PIG label.
This new rig is based on the original Eagle Universal Chest Rig / SKD Version which was was based on the original Eagle Universal Chest Rig that was designed by Paul Howe. It became a classic for its combination of versatility, simplicity, quality, and reasonable price. Eagle was unable to keep SKD supplied with these rigs so they were perpetually out of stock. Now, with the introduction of the UCR under their in house PIG label, SKD will be able to more closely control the production of this popular chest rig.
The new version features several upgrades that make this old standby seem a bit more fresh including:
- 500D Construction for less weight.
- Adjustable retention straps that adjust with velcro instead of metal tri-glides.
- PIG CR-UTV-MS Upgrade Straps, standard.
- Internal drainage grommets.
- Compatible with PIG CR H-Harness Kit.
According to SKD…
The PIG UCR still carries 2 x M4 mags (USGI/PMAG/Lancer) or 1 x 7.62 mag (SR-25/AR10) per each of its 4 rifle mag pouches. The 4 pistol mag pouches up front are ideal for double stack pistol magazines, flashlights, utility tools or other similarly shaped items. The Molle on the side of the chest rig allows for additional ammo, first aid, radio or utility pouches. The PIG UCR also retains the mesh stash pocket and the internal Map Pocket of the original Paul Howe CR-UTV-MS with velcro closure along the top of the rig. As with all Patrol Incident Gear tactical nylon gear, the PIG UCR is proudly made in the USA!
