British Tactical – Chest Rig Triple Mag Insert

2 min read

One of the accessories or add ons for the Low Profile Chest Rig by British Tactical is their Triple Mag insert.

You might think “Oh no, another generic elastic mag insert with some bungees”. Well, then you haven’t taken a good look!

The insert fits perfectly in their chest rig. It’s made a lot different from the other inserts I’ve seen.

Usable with 5.56 & 7.62 Mags, it has angled sides to separate the three magazines and prevent snagging when taking them out.

On the front, there is a loop strip of Velcro. The back is covered in hook Velcro. This means it can be securely attached inside the Low Profile Chest Rig, as well as some other plate carriers.

On top of the front and back pieces, there are laser cut laminate cord attachments for the supplied elastic bungee cords with pull tabs. These are great if you need the extra retention.

Talking about retention, the inside of the insert is covered with a felt-like loop Velcro. This allows you to attach Kydex inserts. I’ve been using the Kydex inserts and they work flawlessly. I still use the bungees, but that’s because I use this setup as a recce rig and I want the extra retention.

Having your magazines securely attached inside the rig, means you open up some real estate on the front it. Because of that I was able to add an admin pouch. If you would like to add more magazines, British Tactical also has an admin insert which looks promising!

The Triple Mag Insert has an innovative design and is made in the UK.

Current price is £18, which is very decent!
