Eagle Chest Rig, Universal/SKD Version

Due to the high demand for the excellent Eagle Universal Chest Rig, designed by Paul Howe, we contacted Eagle to create a custom modification for us in early 2005. The plan was simple- remove the very user-specific MBITR pouches and put 4 rows of modular PALS webbing instead. This modification extended the reach of this excellent design to users who do not use the MBITR radio, and allowed for additional flexibility while staying well under $100.

SKD is the only source for this chest rig, as it is not considered a standard item by Eagle. This chest rig is simply one of the greatest values on the market today, and meets the needs of professional and civilian users alike for a simple and effective way to carry up to 8 M4 magazines, 4 pistol magazines, and other nefarious essentials. This rig also features a storage and mag compartment, grommets on all pouches, and fully adjustable retention flaps on the outer pouches, making it ideal for a pistol holster. Each pouch will hold 1x M14 magazine, or 1x AK-47 magazine, making it a truly universal setup.


  •   Closed cell foam padding in shoulders for superior comfort, while remaining thin and low profile.
  •   Heavy-duty 1000 D Cordura construction.
  •   Fully adjustable and removable shoulder pads and waist strap.
  •   Mesh pouch and Internal Map Pocket with velcro closure.

5 of 5 Awesome Chest Rig January 14, 2012
Reviewer: Steve from The People's Republic of New York  
This rig is a great fit for my tall and skinny frame.  I don't have much trouble while prone with the vest fully load, however if I was shorter (w/ correspondingly shorter arms) or heavier I could see there being a problem.  I also love using one of the pouches to carry my M&P45 in lieu of a holster.   The PALS/MOLLE panels on the sides are a nice touch for any other gear that you want to carry.

5 of 5 Great fitting rig January 9, 2012
Reviewer: Casual Gunner from California  
The SKD Eagle Universal Chest Rig exceeded my expectations. Being of relatively short height (5'8), I've tried many different rigs and vests that just will not fit. The range of adjustments on the Eagle rig allowed me to modify a perfect fit. Impressively enough, the  side pouches allow for my Glock 19 with a TLR-1 taclight attached: nice!

Sturdy construction, snug pouches, light and fully adjustable. I would recommend this product without any hesitation for anyone looking for a light, convenient set up.

5 of 5 The best deal going January 5, 2012
Reviewer: Anonymous Person from MA United States  
The build quality was top notch (as expected), and the features and layout of everything definitely make sense. You won't find a better similar rig for the money.

5 of 5 great little rig January 4, 2012
Reviewer: Ken from WI  
I was suprised at how low profile this thing was when I opened the box, the pictures made it look bulkier than it really is. Its perfect for carrying just the essentials and is comfortable and adjustable enough to add a belt rig if needed. I had no problems with going prone while fully loaded, it feels better than other chest rigs Ive worn while laying on my chest. My only gripe is that my double stack .45 mags only fit into the 2 inboard pouches, and those pouches and flaps are not fully adjustable. Other than that its great little rig.

4 of 5 universal chest rig December 31, 2011
Reviewer: Charles Ballard from Kingston, WA United States  
As far as material and quality, this rig is 5 stars. As far as real world applications I have issues with. I do not paintball, so I don't know what thier requirments are. I have to say that the front loading of this vest is an issue. If you are fully loaded "4 rifle mags 4 pistol mags" you are screwed when you go prone, you will be like a weeble wobble. You would be better served going  1 mag 4 times accross then your pistol mags in front. But, if you do that, you are losing the utility use of the 2 end pouches. I would like to see the 2 middle pouches with some kind of retention trap/cord so they would secure 1 mag. I like the PALS/MOLLES atttachments on the ends of th vest,.
