Russian Army Ratnik 6SH117 Complete Chest Rig Kit With Backpack

The 6SH117 Chest Rig Kit is a part of the Ratnik gear and is the standard issued chest rig kit of the modern Russian Army. Russian military units wear this on top of VKPO. It is ideal for hunting, hiking and airsoft. It can be used in various climates, conditions and geographical zones. The vest base plates are made of synthetic power mesh to reduce the likelihood of overheating and improve air exchange. Chest plates have internal pockets for placing documents, maps, and other items.


The 6SH117 Chest Rig Kit is issued in many different configurations based on the role of the wearer. This variant is called the "Senior Rifleman" and is typically issued to sergeants, corporals, and other NCO's in a rifleman combat role. Combat troops also frequently add additional pouches based on personal preference.

The "Senior Rifleman" variant includes all of the following:

-One vest base of type 6SH117

-One 25 Liter Patrol Backpack  with a pouch for a small infantry shovel (shovel sold separately)

-One 7 Liter "Butt" Pack

I was expecting a box just filled with the gear. I was very surprised when I opened it up and everything was nicely packed and had a good presentation. The gear is top notch quality and shipped really fast. Overall I'm very pleased and Russian Cold Camo has gained a customer for life. I'm 6 ft 6 and it's has plenty of adjustment for any size green bean. Definitely recommend anything from you guys. Can't wait to buy more!!! Just don't forget us big guys.
