Quite possibly the lowest-profile and most minimalist chest rig on the market. This will fit under a loose shirt with minimal printing (loaded with flat gear like mags, at least), provides excellent retention, and weighs next to nothing. As noted in the description, you can affix spare TQ's to the ends for easy access or as part of an 'all-in-one' rig for use in active shooter response or as part of a counter-ambush go-bag if you're running low profile. The elastic cells hold anything from a decent size hand-held radio (Motorolla or 148's) to flashbangs or M18 smoke, and tall-boy cans (Monster, Rockstar, PBR, etc). I've tried this with both AR & AK pattern mags. The AR mags extract flawlessly and have adequate clearance between them to not knock together. This includes PMAG's with the integrated 'Ranger plates'. The AK mags (7.62 WP) fit, but aren't ideal. For one, the curved shape causes three of the mags to bang against one another. Additionally, the locking tab tends to hang up in the open-bottom design when trying to extract the mag. In short, this thing isn't designed for use with an AK, but you can make it work if you're wiling to deal with those two things. Overall this is the best minimalist rig I've run over the past fourteen years and an outstanding product built for the professional end-user. I'd definitely buy one built for sub-gun mags (MP5 or Glock-pattern).
The Bank Robber Chest Rig is a low profile minimalist chest worn load carriage system.
The Chest Rig is constructed entirely out of elastic material. This enables it to conform and retain oddly shaped items such as smoke grenades, flash bangs, magazines and tourniquets.
The Bank Robber comes standard with 4 Elastic cells and two retention bungees designed to hold tourniquets or other like items.
Due to the minimalist nature of the Bank Robber, it does not come with Velcro to mount sub loads or attach it to a plate carrier.

I bought this carrier recently to attempt at using it with a 7.62 ak. I can sufficiently say that this is by far the best elastic minimal chestrig on the market hands down. Not only is the retention top notch, the quality is superb as well. Only problems I have personally had are a few stitches fraying on the tops of the cells. 9.5/10 for you simplemen. @tristanhco on ig
This rig is ultra low-profile, slick, and functional for many uses. My first spiritus rig and definitely not my last!
As a civilian, I wanted a lightweight no frills rig that can accommodate just a couple 30rd mags for the range, a spare double stack handgun mag, and some misc tools (light, pen, notepad, and a deploy-able SOFTT). This thing fits the bill in just about every way possible. It's super easy to access and put on with the slim straps and back straps plus I can wear it under just about anything i own. The only issue I have is that Magpul gen3 mags may hang-up slightly vs the gen2 (little bigger footprint), but over time they stretch to fit and retain the fit very nicely. Pros: comfy, secure on body and secures mags very well. Very easy to use to practice with reloads and drills. Cons: None, the build quality is about as good as it gets...plus probably the only chest rig in its size class. I hope to get the micro rig soon as well!
If you are looking for a chest rig that is simple and sleek, pick up a Bank robber chest rig. Fits perfect under jackets and button up shirts (make sure to get an extra size of what you are for button up shirt) and over jackets and plate carriers. The magazine pouches can hold your standard ar15 30 /40, pistol mags, radio, bang energy drink/smoke or flashbangs. I like the shock cord attachments that can hold tourniquet or other stuff. The clips work with Haley Strategic harness. I was really pleased. Can wait to use this for training or at the gravel pit. Excellent rig IG @Suitup_tactical
Everything you need to carry what you need, nothing you don't. This is THE low profile chest rig to get. The materials are durable, the sewing is sturdy, and the retention of the pouches is great. Not much more to comment on. It's four pouches, six buckles, and two elastic retention bands of pure genius.
BLUF: If you a looking for a no BS low vis carrier, that can hold everything needed to accomplish your mission, buy this rig. The rig is comfortable, lightweight and definitely low vis. The elastic carriers hold close to anything you’re willing to stuff in them, from a small med kit to grenades and water bottles. The side shock cord keepers are great for holding TQs and other slim items. The rig is small enough it will fit in my back pocket(without straps) and be easily deployed in any environment. Overall this lightweight rig has earned a permanent spot in my gear inventory. Great piece of kit, definitely recommend to anyone.
