With all benefits of existing binocular harnesses (which also offer a good method of attaching mini/micro chest rigs), there are some disadvantages in their design.

Its straps become twisted – see picture below.

Mini/ micro chest rig harness concept – Upper Torso Connection [light], UTC-L

Recently I met in the internet two concepts of chest rigs’ harnesses, which I can describe only as “borderline genius”. So I was jealous as a devil and can’t eat, sleep and surf the web peacefully – until I figured a new concept combining both.

The main problem with my wanna-make chest rigs is the number of attachment points – as these rigs are supposed to be light, they have only four attachment points, not six, as heavier rigs do. So with six points its easier to both keep chestrig high (with upper and upper-side points) and anchor it on the waist (with lower-side points). It is far more harder with only four points, oh, so sadly to know.

After long hours of intense -h-a-t-e- research, I decided to make upper points of four-point harness to work as traditional upper points on six-point harness, and lower points of four-point harness as both upper-side and lower-side points on six-point harness.
