PIG Brig CR Harness [SYSTEMA]
PIG CR-UTV-MS Upgrade Straps
Chest Rig Not Included.
The people have spoken. PIG has acted. We're proud to present to you the PIG CR-UTV Upgrade Straps. If you are one of the thousands of Eagle CR-UTV Universal Chest Rig (SKD, SKD All-Molle and standard version) users, and have longed for a non-padded strap with hydration and commo line keepers that is also upgradable to an H-Harness configuration, then BOOM. MADE IN AMERICA. THAT JUST HAPPENED.
For H-Harness configuration, PIG CR H-Harness Kit must be purchased separately.
I purchased these thinking they were required in order to use the PIG CR H-Harness with my new PIG UCR chest rig. As it turns out, these are very similar to the straps already included with the chest harness. The only difference is these upgrade straps do not have the Velcro on the underside of the strap (padding???) like the ones that came with the harness. It was not clear on the website so I ordered them anyway. Three stars because of that. Otherwise, the upgrade straps are well made but call SKD before you order these. I didn't......my bad!
As mentioned by many others this is a MUST upgrade for the Eagle Industries chest rig. One thing to be aware of though is that there is a compatibility issue with the OLDER Eagle rigs. However this can be easily overcome with a couple of buckles and a some skill with a needle and thread! Honestly, I took the old padded straps and cut the bottom unpadded section, leaving enough strap that I could sew a female buckle to it. I then sew a male buckle to the cut end of the loose strap. This will accommodate the new straps as well as letting you be able to use the old straps still.
Definitely a must improvement for Eagle Rigs...once again very practical with the extra loops for other useful pouches or gear...no padding needed...ANOTHER AWESOME GEAR SKD!...Thanks.
I got PIG UCR and upgraded to H harness. This item was not needed
I attached to my Eagle Universal SKD version 556 chest rig. I wear the rig over heavy police tactical armor. The thinner straps (as compared to the padded original straps) lay flatter on the armor shoulders, and do not get twisted on the rear neck yoke. I recommend these upgrade straps to anyone wearing over heavy armor.
love the PIG straps for my Eagle UCR, very well made and easy to wear under backpack straps.
The straps are way better then the old padded one the only down side is they are shorter in lenght then the orginal straps
perfect upgrade. The straps do not interfere/bulk up when I slide them over armor. I like the H config over the X config so I am happier now.
Installed on the Eagle SKD version chest rig. More comfortable with a full load and does not interfere with an assault pack or shouldering a weapon. Fast shipping. Thanks SKD.
