Accept medium or large plates of various cuts also the cummerbund will accept 6×10 soft armor or you can purchase separately the side plate pocket for hard

Armor options


So hey guys here it is finally the d3cr heavy a lot of people have asked for this particular chest rig to be compatible

With 308 pattern magazines so we built it for you we wanted to keep the same kind of profile as a d3cr light same mission concept it could be pulled out of go bags be put in the side door of your

Vehicle in the back trunk anywhere you can imagine um it still interfaces with play carriers out there like glossier mayflower and of course a lot of the other play carriers that you

Can modify to make the d3cr system work so nothing's really changed overall between light and heavy except the magazine capacity and some of the accessories that we added into it and i'll talk about those

You still got your handgun mags just like the d3cr light so there's consistency there for both double stack and single stack because we do have the rare earth magnet in the back of it so it'll

Suck the magazine down into it and hold on your mags if you run a slightly smaller one with the elastic on the sides we have a zippered gp pouch on the left side

So you can put whatever you need in there on the right side another zipper administrative or tool pouch if you what have you where it has elastic built inside

You can put your kestrel wind meters your gps's compasses or whatever you would need maybe it's more specific for the three platforms and sometimes if you're a sniper or support roll guy you can carry a little bit more

Uh specific equipment for that weapon system it even has a dope card clear top in here you can put maps or again your dope card for your rifle your optic we also have elastic built in on the

Sides of these for tourniquets or com cables or whatever else you want to stick in their knives and whatnot the d3cr heavy is just like the light as it pertains to the accessory kit the

Expansion line you can still throw the hangers on here and you can even put your handgun in here as well we don't make a double mag wedge for it yet

That's a lot of weight and ammo but if you need more ammo let us know we might build it for you as far as magazines that you can put into the heavy you can run scar mags sr25 or dpms

Pattern type mags you can run m1a m14 mags any type of 308 steel mag you want you can even put the the polymer mags in there from like lancer or the magpul lr mags so it'll pretty much fit the entire

Suite of 308 lineup of mags out there so as far as pricing on the d3cr heavy and availability it's going to be in these two colors for right now multicam and coyote pricing is 179 for solid color and 183

For multicam it is again compatible with all the expansion lineup so if you need to put the hanger and stuff on the bottom or the handgun on the back works the same as d3cr life you
