Micro/mini chest rig harness prototype UTC-L version 2

Tried X-straps and H-straps today, and I swear H is much more comfortable and flexible.

Significant part of prototype is silly stolen from Zulu Nylon Gear product – M4 Reduced Signature Chest Rig.

Please notice that prototype has some redundant connectors – because some parts were ready from previously made pieces and now were combined into new.

Thanks to that, central part of H-harness could be crearly visible, look at “butterfly” on the next photo.

Utility (not tactical) apron – my approach

Utility (not tactical) apron – my approach

I’ve seen many “tactical”, grilling and work aprons. As usual, I was not satisfied with any one from them so decided to make own concept.

The problem was – I personally do not need any pesky aprons! The prototype is for another person, partially gift, partially testing. Luckily his preferences are known by me.

What’s the difference?

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.
