Now Available, The Beez Combat Systems Padded Harness Chest Rig in A-TACS FG Camo

Introducing a newly designed lightly padded one piece harness system–now available for the entire Beez Combat System chest rig line. Beez encouraged their designers to find a simple solution to add comfort, function, stability, and enhance performance to their chest rigs. Design considerations included the following: Optimal size/shape, amount of molle/modular pals webbing, Velcro loop for ID patches, drag handle shape, routing webbing Hydration/coms and hardware interchangeability. The end result speaks for itself. The padded harness provides additional comfort and the option to mount a hydration carrier. With three rows by six columns of molle there is plenty of real estate to mount the largest hydration carriers or utility pouches available.

With the additional weight of a hydration carrier and water a drag handle/carrying handle was a must.  The low profile drag handle is made with 1.5” webbing and extends across the back of the padded harness for easy access. 2” of loop extending the length of the molle webbing were added for ID or other patches. Both shoulder pads have two pieces of integrated webbing for routing of a hydration tube or coms providing plenty of options while keeping the padded harness low profile for ease of movement.

This system is now available at www.beezcombatsystems.com or, through Beez Combat Systems’ network of dealers worldwide.
