Varusteleka releases the Särmä TST LW18 Chest Rig

Särmä TST is Varusteleka’s in-house brand of clothing and gear designed for military and law enforcement end-users. Our clothing and equipment are made in co-operation with a number of experienced manufacturers with a strong background in producing clothing and gear for military and law enforcement officials, most notably for the Finnish Defence Forces.

Te TST LW18 Chest Rig, a lightweight and simple chestrig to carry your most important fighting kit. Made entirely out of webbing, making the rig extremely rugged and breathable.

The vest base is made from 25 mm webbing in two layers, sewn onto eachother to form a 12 channels wide PALS matrix. Pouches attach to the webbing just as securely as onto a traditional fabric backed vest, but the empty spots are only webbing and empty holes, making this design more breathable than a traditional chestrig.

As this rig is made for the Finnish market we’ve taken into account the fact that our RK magazines need more than the usual three rows high PALS matrix that most western chestrigs are based on. This rig is four rows high to work properly with the standard issue RK mag pouches, a good thing for anybody using Soviet based weapons tech.

The shoulder straps are comfortably wide, 50 mm, and end in 25 mm straps that attach onto the vest base cornes with LadderLock buckles. A waist strap keeps the rig from flopping about. All straps are generously adjustable to fit pretty much anybody who could effectively use a rig like this in the field.
