South African Defence Force (SADF) 1983 model chest rig.

Label : C&W 

Label : S.A.P:H.I (Pty) Ltd


The South African M83 rig is a robust and versatile chest rig capable of carrying ammunition for multiple weapons platforms. The chest rig is made of very durable 1000 Denier cordura nylon. Its design is simple, incorporating two padded shoulder straps and a non padded waist strap with a quick release buckle. The M83 chest rig is an older design that has been proven in real combat the world over.

The chest rig consists of three centrally located and divided magazine pouches, a small oil can pouch, an individual first aid kit pouch, a utility pouch, a chemlight/tool pouch, and an internal map pouch. These were designed to carry six (6) South African R4 35rd magazines but work great with similar sized mags as well.

The official name of the color is “Nutria,” It is darker than “Coyote,” and lined with black trim. The color was designed to be a good base color so that when the gear got dirty, the dirt and dust would create a great natural camouflage in the savanna.
