I am big fan of chicom gear, these old school pouches, rigs and back packs.
Here is my collection of pictures so far:

rifle type 65 vest
5 cell AK pouch
drum pouch with a small side pouch (left pouch)
smg chest rig
pouch for 2 stick grenades
pouch for 4 stick grenades
smaller backpack with two external drum pouches
And now the remakes of old gear which are rock:
3 cell chest rig
sks chest rig
I hope you like it. Now I would like to ask you to contribute to this thread. If you know anything about the history of this gear, further information, pictures, other versions/products, whatever...please post it.
Also does anybody know which company is producing the remakes of the chest rigs? I thought it would be UTG??? Can somebody confirm this please.
i would look at cheaperthendirt.com i see rigs like that all the time in the booklet and they arent badly priced. and real sword made the good old three pocket chest rig i think when they releases there ak model
that rifle type 65 vest is interesting what goes in the larger pouches second from the right grenades right?
I don't know who makes this one, but they have them on Center Fire Systems for like 7 bucks. I bought one for a former State Guard buddy of mine, who just recently graduated BCT and is now at AIT training to be a Nasty Guard 68W, and he loves it cuz he can carry his AR mags in it.
