Got this MLCS Rhodesian Recon Vest in MJK on eBay at a great price, which fairly reflected the condition it is in.
Note the chopped bib and removed plate pocket & associated bits on the back of the chest rig. As per LegitKit (the eBay seller), the mods were done by the SEAL who used to run this rig before trading it in.
I guess the mods really detracted from the appeal this rig carried for most people, but it is exactly what I was looking for. Less material on the backside of a RRV results in a lower profile – why keep the bib there if you’re not going to use it, right?
I actually loved it enough to do a similar mod to my Condor MCR (RRV clone) immediately after.
