Genuine Chinese Military SKS chest rigs from the Vietnam era with eight pockets to hold magazines or ammunition. Constructed of heavy canvas with leather shoulder straps and each pocket have a leather bottom and snapping lid to handle the weight of a loaded magazine.

The canvas side straps and leather shoulder straps adjust for sizing; metal belt buckle embossed with the Chinese star and metal hardware complete this rig.

Appear like new, however they have been in storage and may have slight oxidation and a slight odor; These are a part of history.

"Sorry I misspoke when I stated they fit 30 round mags well they fit but do not close shut . But they do fit 3 10 round stripper clips for a total of 240 rounds they are like new a little dust but after a damp rag to them they look excellent. I never seen something this old in this nice of condition the only problem is the on beat up one I got but the customer service rep was helpful sending it back."

"While I really like the Standard green canvas SKS bandolier I felt compelled to purchase this leather variant, it seems to be high quality and looks to be in un-issued condition however, mine was very stiff out of the box. Nothing a little saddle soap didn't fix though. Overall very high quality item. Just be sure to let it air out outside before you let it in the house lol"

"I really like this rig. The closing clasp is an interesting and effective design. The pouches are capped on top and bottom with brown leather (or pleather (I can't tell)) and the body of the pouches are green canvas. Straps are made of real leather and yes, they are a bit wavy, but some leather wax will help with that. I like the snap button closure on the pouches, as it is better than the wooden toggle and loop system of the earlier rigs, of which I have two. It is a much more solid and efficient rig than the old style ones, and I think it could be used more quickly and effectively. You could probably cram three loaded stripper clips into each pouch, but the clips could be very difficult to remove and would drastically increase reloading time, so I would prefer to keep two per pouch. This is a battle-worthy system at a bargain price. Chinese military gear is of much higher and more consistent quality than import products made there."

"Overall excellent condition except that there was mildew on the straps, and the straps are extremely stiff. My straps are not leather but vinyl-like. I haven't been able to soften them up yet. The canvas is in great condition and new. The pocket covers are leather and responded well to saddle soap. Be prepared to clean yours up and rejuvenate the straps. This really is a good value, and you should have at least one."

"I ordered 2 harnesses. Both appear unissued. However, both were heavily covered in mildew/mold (primarily on the leather parts). I'm assuming they will cleanup to look like new."
