  1. amorey96 (verified owner)

    I purchased a used one and was thrilled to see it in packaging and in amazing condition. One of the best prices out there!!

  2. Dave (verified owner)

    As advertised. Purchased used, arrived in excellent shape like new. Would recommend a second person to help tighten the straps in the back, but do-able by yourself. Plenty of room for adjustment, I’m 5’11”, 180 lbs

  3. Travis Larson (verified owner)

    Great carrier at a great price, all the eagle ind. items I purchased in “defective” quality seem more like “lightly used”. Fast shipping too. Buy with confidence!

  4. surfgent (verified owner)

    Awesome piece of kit. Be sure to get the H back strap connector, they sell it separately, its only a few bucks extra. Otherwise the back straps cross up which might work for some people. But it rides a whole lot better with it. They should mention this in the description. Hint Hint Venture surplus. Anyway. Dont hesitate if you’re considering this chest rig the quality is the best and your getting it at a great price

Customer Product Questions and Answers

    How does it come “Rhodesian”??? The MOLLE system (visible on your pictures) was introduced in 1997. However, it did not see widespread issue until after the September 11, 2001, attacks. Rhodesia ended its existence as a country in 1979. Can you explain please?

    Its not Rhodesian from that era. Its the name of the style that Eagle Industries, they decided to name them “Rhodesian Recon Vests” but you are absolutely correct, these were not put out until the early 2000’s. To be clear, this is not Rhodie gear.

  2. What size plate does it hold?

     So I believe there was a specific plate made for the RRV's. That said, I have been able to put a USGI medium front plate in it without issue, it fit pretty solid and tight. I think those are considered 10" x 12.5" in size.
