Tough, lightweight, excellent balance of features and versatility. That's the Tactical Assault Gear (TAG) Phalanx chest rig LBE. All current versions of the Phalanx are discussed but the Type 4 is my favorite. It integrates four kangaroo pistol mag pouches on the rifle mag pouches; a high speed and cost effective approach to a Level 2 grab and go rig. These pistol mag pouches have magnets in them to hold the mag. They are secure and durable in long term TNP testing. The rifle mag pouches are also well-executed, able to accommate M4/AR and SR25/M14 mags (one each pouch) and the retention bungee is perfect. Once sizing is effected by the cross straps and Fastex buckles, the Phalanx rides securely with no twist or flop. Comfort is high and the Phalanx integrates better than plate carriers into backpacking systems (clean back). Don't expect armor or H20 integration here...this is a lightweight, simple rig that doesn't have those pockets. It does however feature a back pocket with retention for pistol (most versions; mesh pocket too). The Type 4 has the MOLLE attaching utlity and radio pouches. They'll fit MBITR radios, cameras, mags, extra mags, and your twinkies. I rec' you get the removable pouch-variety (like Type 4) because these pouches can interfere with a fast draw from side mounted pistol. Colors are discussed, favorites tested and shown here. The ATACS and Multicams are wins. Stitiching and the 500 denier Cordura fabric are flawless in the Phalanx. Value is amazing for a US produced, ultra quality LBE rig...even at the $115 standard price it's a good deal. The product also supports the LC Industries employment for blind people. Watch TAG around Thanksgiving time and for special TNP deals on this rig. Another outstanding TAG rig./////////////////////////////Nutnfancy Likability Scale: 10 out of 10
