Esstac 556 Chest Rig Back Panel (Boar Series)
One of the best features of the Boar-series chest rigs is the ability to change out the primary magazine carriage mechanism by merely replacing the back panel. The 556 Back Panel allows you to take an existing 762 Boar-series chest rig and turn it into a chest rig to support M4/ AR15 platforms.
All Esstac Boar Series Chest Rig Back Panels now come standard with the overwhelmingly popular KYWI (KYdex Wedge Insert) retention system. Standard bungee retention flaps are available separately.
Coupled w/the Esstac Boar Series 762 Back Panel that I had purchased prior, this allows for rapid swap-outs, adding greater flexibility & increased capability. The practical KYWI retention system is a welcome addition also.
I have tried a few other load carriage solutions, but the load bearing boar rig and these back panels have relegated those others to storage. The kywi retainers hold snug, the stitching is sturdy, and the ease in changing panels for different missions or weapon systems makes the whole system extrordinary. I recommend this system for anyone who is a designated marksman.
I bought the back pannel to add versitility to my Boar. I use a 5.56 at work, but have a .308 for personal use. This allows me to carry either rifle with the same great rig
