Back of pack. Unfortunately, it appears that the straps have been removed.

I was going through some older photographs the other day and found this yet to be identified vest. Thoughts range from ALSE/Rigger made vest to possible AWS. It is definitely from the mid 80's to early 90's manufactured.

 

Rig has a built in extraction harness and is capable of holding 8 M-15 magazines. Vest has definitely been used and abused.

Nice! Looks like it was painted to match the ACU uniform.

Thanks for the comment, Merc.

Picked this Blackhawk Industries Commando chest rig recently. If you can't tell, I am a huge fan of the BHI Commando chest rigs and decided to buy this one because it was a variation I didn't have in the collection.

 

This Commando chest rig is different for several reasons. The shoulder straps have velcro pieces that attach to a corresponding section of velcro on the back of a vest.

 

Second, this chest rig has had three pistol mag pouches in 3-color desert camo added to the front of three magazine pouch flaps.

 

Third, the fourth magazine pouch has a square piece cut out that would presumably be used for a radio. Edges have been professionally sewn.

 

I went ahead and displayed this chest rig over top of a Patriot Performance Materials body armor. Probably not the right body armor, but the chest rig does seem to work with it.

Close up of the pouch that has been modified for a radio. Knowing where this piece came from and the modifications, pretty good bet it was for a JTAC/CCT.
