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.

Made in USA!

    Must buy for cushion and ventilation

    Wearing a plate carrier or pack gets hot and sticky. This was definitely worth the extra change.

    Pig Pontoon's + AVS

    Posted by Josh on 1st Feb 2020

    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!!

    Comfy and worth the price

    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

    Very helpful in warm weather.

    They do help with airflow to some degree. I am running a 6094 with multicurve plates. There is a noticeable difference with increased comfort after they were put on the back of my plate carrier. I plan on getting another pair for the front as well. I wish they were a tad bit thicker, like a eight of an inch.

    Simple yet effective!

    These compact and simple things not only make the vest cooler, but also provide a better level of comfort. Top notch addition to my STT.

    I managed to mess up my order and SKD was very fast at getting back to me and making the adjustments in time.

    Nothing too them, just as designed

    These fill the exact role they were designed for and fill it very well. Moreover, SKD is an industry leader in their customer service.

    Excellent upgrade for the JPC 2.0

    Posted by Derek R on 1st Jun 2018

    I felt my JPC needed a bit more padding as it has none. I added these in with the plates and made a huge difference in comfort. Also added a nice air channel. Highly recommend.
