Yeah its a 'tankie bra'. First prototypes were made by squires in Taihape. But now I believe they're manufactured by a firm in Levin. Its designed to hold 2XIW mags, a grenade, FFD and other bits and pieces as necessary. Vest is terylene(?) mesh. Pouches are cordura. You could probably find one at kiwidisposals.com.
