PIG AFC Pontoon Set (2 Pads) [SYSTEMA]
NOTE ON SYSTEMA: All PIG items with "[SYSTEMA]" in the product title are related to the PIG Brig Plate Carrier and PIG Brig Chest Rig product family. Please refer to the product descriptions for how each respective SYSTEMA product relates to the product family.
The ALL-NEW PIG Air-Flow/Comfort (AFC) Pontoons (Pat. Pend.) enhance the capabilities of current and up-coming PIG designs, including the PIG Brigandine Plate Carrier and the PIG gRUNT Modular Pack.
Based on the wildly popular airflow channel pads on the PIG Plate Carrier, the AFC Pontoons give you the same comfort and ventilation performance, while providing the user the option of removal when needed. The AFC Pontoon Set can be added to the back or front carrier, or you can order 2 sets to add padding and ventilation to both.
For PIG BRIG Plate Carrier users, AFC Pontoons are perfect when wearing the BRIG with stand-alone plates over a shirt to provide ventilation, padding and additional comfort. When wearing the BRIG over soft armor, simply remove the AFC Pontoons to minimize stand-off as ventilation on top of a soft armor vest is moot.
When using the PIG gRUNT Modular Pack as a stand-alone day pack, the AFC Pontoons provide rigidity and comfort to compliment the PIG Shoulder Straps perfectly. Look for additional upcoming PIG designs that utilize the AFC Pontoons.

Works awesome with my FS STT 1.0 carrier. I should have bought a set for the back too!
Great upgrade to any plate carrier that can accept them. I live in NC and in the summer my LBT 6094 gets ridiculously hot during military ops; the PiG Pontoons help reduce that suffering. I had a tailor sew strips of velcro into the interior of my plate carrier and they work perfectly.
Nice addition for airflow, would recommend in hot environments.
First impression: good quality overall.ñ and Perfect size. Seems that it will do the work that it’s designed for. S&H was fast, despite the current situation. Cool sticker as a bonus. Great customer service (they contacted me to verify the zip code, and in fact I made an error when ordering it). Thanks
Adds very little to the overall profile of the carrier, but allows more breathing room. Also, the pontoons on the back seem to add a bit of spine support, so that's nice.
Provided the standoff needed to stop unwanted chaffing and provide better airflow.
Wearing a plate carrier or pack gets hot and sticky. This was definitely worth the extra change.
Used these Pontoon's on my Crye AVS harness. Now it fits like a glove without spending another $70 bucks on AVS pads. Really well made too!! Thanks SKD!!
Spinal comfort for wearing my SOHPC for 12+ hours at a time in a truck, keeps the base of the plate from digging into your spine
