Designed as part of a collaboration with SOF personnel, the new 3X Special Forces Rig by Max Velocity Tactical is a versatile rig with four 5.56 magazine pouches with kydex inserts, 4 MOLLE wide side panels if you want to add more pouches, and two pouches behind the side panels designed specifically for carrying two AN/PRC 152 radios (one on each side), or two 5.56 mags in each radio pouch. You can also use the pouches for various admin items, or leave them collapsed if you so wish. There’s also a rear pouch for carrying a compass, as well as a map/notebook pouch overlaying the compass pouch.

Max Velocity Tactical says you can attach the 3X Special Forces Rig directly to your plate carrier via the MVT PC Kit (sold separately). The 3X can also be worn over a plate carrier with the supplied h-harness, or standalone in ‘recce mode.’
