DA Hurricane Chest Rig

Direct Action released a new video recently, demonstrating the virtues and features of their DA Hurricane Chest Rig. It's an LBE option that will work on its own or when attached to a plate carrier.  It's not a new idea, or even a new DA product, but their take on it looks pretty interesting enough — and we like the name.  Read on to learn more.

Industry News: Direct Action DA HURRICANE Chest Rig

As its namesake was for the RAF during the Battle of Britain, the HURRICANE chest rig is the workhorse of the DIRECT ACTION line. The HURRICANE is a split front, full size, hybrid chest rig with fixed, integral magazine pouches for maximum weight reduction. The HURRICANE can be used in regular, stand-alone mode and can also be attached to the Direct Action SPITFIRE plate carrier with a separate attachment kit.
