High price, excellent quality. June 20, 2011
Reviewer: Alexei from Syracuse, NY United States  
While the Esstac Bush Boar might be pricier than other rigs on this site, I have to say it is definitely worth it. The rig is constructed of solid materials and stitching, it feels great, as it sticks to your chest unlike others which flop around. The rig conforms to the wearer and will not chafe.  Since the bush boar has enough room for 6 magazines, the amount of gear this rig can hold is incredible for the size. Since the magazines of the wearers primary are concealed behind the front, on the face of the rig, you are able to put things like admin, med, and pistol mag pouches.  I would recommend the split front  boars if you plan on taking the rig on and off repeatedly. (I still prefer the regular boars for solidity.)The boar series from esstac are a great purchase, and if the user wants to further customize the rig, esstac offers a wide selection of other products to go along with it. Overall, a great piece of gear, well worth the premium price.

Good Lightweight Rig June 15, 2011
Reviewer: BadgerActual from Boerne, TX United States  
I got this rig for my FAL and AK and it turned out that it worked very well. The adjustable height let me use both systems for my mags and kept it close to my body so it never slipped out anytime I was rolling or sprawling on the ground. The straps tend to dig in the shoulder a little and rub the neck but I remedied this with a shamagh.

Great Gear High Price December 21, 2010
Reviewer: Hoss from portland, OR United States  
This gear is outstanding and very innovative, but unless you are specifically looking for a low pro rig that is very adaptable then your money may be spent better elsewhere. Once you buy all the accessories and a slick plate carrier, you might as well have just gone with an Eagle rig.
Still for what it is it's very good gear that I have toted around for a while as a lightweight rig.

Does not come as shown. December 17, 2010
Reviewer: kiran hill from reno, NV United States  
The padded harness comes separately, for an extra 55 dollars, and they are not in stock. So if you buy this chest rig expecting it to be like it is in the pictures, you will be sorely disappointed.

Superlative Chest Rig February 20, 2010
Reviewer: Norbert from San Francisco, CA United States  
The design of the Bush Boar is outstanding. I can get in and out very easily. The mags at the periphery curve around my 31" waist, consequently the one under my shooting arm isn't quite as easy to get to as the others. Mags slide freely without the bungees. The Bush Boar is low profile enough at the sides to just barely accommodate a pistol with a belt mounted holster.

Fit: The straps are very comfortable and come with plenty of grommets to tidy the loose ends. All of the buckles and straps are quite wide which minimizes pressure points and contributes to the overall comfort of this rig. I do recommend the optional padded harness for heavier loads.

Function: No other rig that I know of is this platform agnostic thanks to its independent mag pouch system. You can even run half and half 5.56 and 7.62 (if you want) thanks to the split mag pouches! I also use this rig with Esstac shotshell cards for a truly universal setup that saves me a ton of time and money.

Multicam Bush Boar November 22, 2009
Reviewer: Fred Stecher Jr. from New Lisbon, WI United States  
I recieved this rig in a very timely fashion. stitching, design and materials are top notch. However I ordered the 7.62 in MC and my FAL mags would not fit. I contacted SKD, who set me up with Esstac and I had a replacement backpanel in a few days. So now I have back panels for my AKs and my FAL! Couldn't be happier. Esstac and SKD rock!
