Esstac Chest Rig, LBB (Load Bearing Boar)

This new version of the Boar completely integrates the gear mounting platform, the harness and hydration into one system. The hydration pack is no longer a "grafted on" after-thought, it is now part of the overall solution to the second line set-up. The LBB is available in both Boar (8-mag) and Bush Boar (6-mag) configurations.

  • Harness and Hydro merged with pass-thru slot for the Boar
  • Boar becomes a cummerbund for the system
  • Hidden shock-cord lacing allows it to fit from 32" - 56" approximately
  • Hydro compartment resized to fit a plate

Excellent! Last rig I will buy! May 28, 2012
Reviewer: Rob from The Old Dominion  
Overall quality and stitching is top notch.  The fit is very adjustible.  This rig can rid lower than other chest rigs which is a plus for me.  plenty of real estate for other molle gear.  Rig is unbelievably flat.  I love it.  

Got the Kydex inserts, great upgrade.  

The most comfortable chest rig I have ever tired on.   I have other top quality rigs and this is far and beyond the best I have handled.  I would defiantly recommend this for anybody looking to buy their last chest rig ever.

Great rig, with a few quirks. June 30, 2011
Reviewer: Luke from Amarillo, TX United States  
Very solid construction, great stitching, durable materials, comfortable.  Very easy to add other pouches due to the flat fronted design.  It does have a couple of quirks, but I wouldn't go so far as to call them cons:

The zipper can stick closed, and you have to mess with it a bit to get the knack of opening it.  After a few times, it's just as easy to open as any other zipper, you just have to know the trick.  

The bungee adjustment in the back can take some getting used to if you want to switch back and forth to different sizes (in and out armor, etc).  Again, after a few tries, it becomes pretty quick and easy.  Definitely helps to mark the spots you use with a sharpie.

For the price, I also think it could come with a hydration bladder, but that's just because I'm cheap.

Overall I think it's a fantastic chest rig, and I highly recommend it.

Good design with a few flaws January 3, 2011
Reviewer: Kevin from RC-SW Afghanistan  
I bought this rig and have put it through several months of hell in Afghanistan and found it to have a few flaws that led me to benching it. First and foremost I think the elastic rope that allows you to expand the rig is a poor choice. I would recommend web straps or something that was easier to use. I have a 35 inch waist (around my belly) and I always had to pull hard on both sides to get it to buckle in front of my IOTV. Second, the zipper on the front took a crap on me a month into use. One day it just froze up and took me an hour or pulling with all my might to separate it. The sucker was just stuck and not wanting to unzip. I gave up using it afterwords and went to just using the buckles which made life much easier. The rest of the design is great, the velcro attaching mag pouches that sit behind the vest are perfect if you want to run 5.56 one day and 7.62 the other.

By this one August 11, 2010
Reviewer: Anonymous Person from USA  
I love this rig.  Been running 3 months with this in Afghan.  Can go with or w/o plate hanger.  The mags pouches are right where you need them and the mags are held in place with a nylon/Velcro/elastic deal so dirt and water fall out.  If you do not put mags in, they hold cell phones, power bars, a pistol, etc.  This leave the whole front of the rig free for radios, med pouch, utility pouch, etc.  My 30 rd 5.56 fit just fine in the 7.62 pouches, with just a little more room.  with the additional harness in the back and a molle style camelback holder, I have gone overnight with just this.
