The V-Ops Chest Rig is the industrys first and only completely customizable load bearing solution. Constructed by hand here in Oceanside, CA with 1000 Denier Cordura and backed by our lifetime warranty, this rugged and dependable rig can stand up to any test or mission you can find. You can create a slim-line modular rig capable of carrying any of your MOLLE compatible pouches and gear, or you can choose from tons of upgrades to build your own fully-loaded combat rig designed to keep you and your weapon system in the fight. Here's how it breaks down:

1. Color Options

First, choose from the following color options:

2. Bib Options

Next, you'll have to decide if your rig will include our Modular Bib. Sewn onto the body of the chest rig, the bibs straps attach underneath your shoulder pads with adjustable height to maintain a low profile and sit properly during wear. Featuring a 4x3 PALS platform, the bib can accommodate chest mounted admin pouches or holsters, and also opens at the top to allow loose items to be contained in the hidden interior compartment. Further, a large loop panel allows for patches or name tapes to be attached to the bib at your discretion.

3. Center Combat Load Options

After selecting a color and bib, you can determine what type of mag load out you want to have sewn onto your rig. All combat load pouch styles have fully removable lids, and feature PALS webbing for attaching modular pouches or organizing loose small items. Further, each pouch in our "Universal Load out can carry up to (3) 30 rd. 5.56 magazines, (2) 20 rd. .308 or 30 rd. AK magazines and a large variety of other common magazine types, all retained securely with elastic bands for a tight fit no matter the quantity. AK and 5.56 specific V-Ops Chest Rigs are also available for purchase in our V-Ops product line. NOTE: NOT ALL P-MAGS WILL FIT. 

4. Side Options

Next, you'll be able to choose from (8) different right and left hand side upgrades. Sewn-on options include Padded or Zippered GP Pouches, Medical Pouches with internal elastic storage loops, Squad Leader Admin Pouches with upgraded internal organization, SAW Drum Pouches that double as spent mag stores, and Vertical Draw Holsters, complete with bungee retention lanyards. Make up your own style or build a rig to fit unit SOPs, the choices are yours. Of course, if you choose to go without a sewn on load out, a 4x4 area of PALS webbing will be sewn onto the rig to accommodate removable MOLLE compatible modular pouches.

5. Back Options

Once you've decided upon your exterior sewn-on upgrades, choose from (4) interchangeable back options to complete your rig. Pick the Cross Back Shoulder Straps to allow for the most adjustable wear, over or without armor, or select the Modular Back to accommodate your personal hydration carrier or modular pouches. If you know you want the ability to carry larger hydration solutions, select the Integrated Hydration Carrier, designed to fit any 100 oz. Bladder, or choose the Pak Bak Hydration, capable of functioning as a rig back or a stand-alone day pack when detached from the rig. All back styles are also available for individual purchase.

6. Body Side Option

Choosing the Enhanced Body Side Upgrade will add (2) flat pockets which are ideal for MBTRs or other small handheld radios. Located on both sides of the rig, the pockets' contents are secured with bungee retention.

Resting behind the main body of the chest rig, a loop paneled kangaroo pouch contains a fully adjustable holster that allows for unimpeded access, whether or not you've chosen a bib upgrade.

7. Internal Admin Option

An internal Admin pouch can be sewn inside the zippered chest rig body to organize administrative items like maps, compasses, GPS or Wind-reading Devices, or any other miscellaneous stuff you might need on your person and not in your pack.

8. Other Accessories

We offer a number of other accessories, including Bungee Mag Retention Adapters (to exchange with your removable mag lids whenever you see fit), Butt Stock Non-slip Retention Pads, and 100 oz. Bladders. Pick whatever you need to make your rig work for you.

9. Production Option

Once you've built your rig online, its up to you when you'll receive it. Choosing Standard Production will enter your product into a 6-week production timeline, or, if you need your item faster, you can upgrade to Urgent Production, which will guarantee your rig ships in 3 weeks or less. Either way, you'll receive status updates throughout the entire process and our Customer Service Agents will be standing by to help out when you need us!

Best tactical gear on the market! by Ragnar from Georgia, USA 11 May 2015
I purchased the .308 modular tactical vest with a right side medical pouch. Not only is the quality second to none it's was made in the USA. I have seldom dealt with such professional service. I was informed of every phase of the production process. This company is the real deal!! Well done...
Great Rig by Philip from Ohio United States
18 Jan 2015
This is a great chest rig very well made and with so many available options and best of all made in the USA! I ordered my 308 chest rig with 4 mag universal loadout so I can use it with 3 223 mags, 2 308's mags and even with the BDS shotgun shell 16 round pull out tray. I put a GP pouch on the right side and a roll away dump pouch on my left side as well as the body side upgrade to hold my Sig 220 45. I got the modular back and mounted a shotgun scabbard on it to hold my Mossberg 500 when I need it. I love this rig the quality is great and a lifetime warranty. Thanks BDS
Upgrading my rig by Geoffrey M.E. 01 Jul 2011
I can't say enough how easy it was for me upgrading my rig order online.I got 308 vehicle op chest rig with the 4 mag loadout and GP pouch on the right and medical IFAK pouch on the left side.The extra padding on the hydration carrier upgrade is a must for my 4 20rd steel mags for my M14.I got the bib and internal admin pouch as well which holds my ink sticks and notepad instead of me digging around my pouches looking for them.This rig is easy on and easy off.Lots of adjustment for wearing body armor underneath or not.Lots of pals webbing for adding my other pouches to it.The super admin pouch I got with my order fits perfect on the bib area.I am very satisfied with my order.The rig is really sturdy and holds up to the abuse I dish out.I would recommend BDS to anyone out there that wants some heavy duty gear thats US made.They also have a lifetime warranty on their gear as well.My only issue was the waiting but when i got it,it was well worth the wait for what was basically a custom rig.Hats off to you folks!

.308 Modular Chest Rig by J.D. 06 Jun 2011
I ordered this chest rig with the 8 magazine option. I love it. The quality is great and it is very comfortable to wear with/without armour. The mag pouch lids are completely adjustable for a snug fit and function well. Well worth the production wait. I plan to order more from BDS Tactical in the future.
