LBT 2010 NSW AR-KIT. PART 2-1961AR CHEST RIG
The chest may look similar with the 1961G there are 3 differences between the 2 vests . one is the additional quick release buckle at the shoulder strap, another difference will be in the back of the chest rig there is no nylon net for the flotation or bladder insertion. Lastly the 1961G OD/TAN/MULTICAM is made of 1000D cordura but the AR is made out of 550D, it is softer and lighter but still tough enough for the mission and gives the operator better comfort while they carry their heavy load ammo and gear during the mission.

NOW LETS LOOK AT THE TAG
IT IS DIFFERENT THEN THE 09 VERSION WHICH SAYS NSWDG CHEST RIG.
SOME PEOPLE MIGHT SAY SOME B.S ABOUT THE TAG AND THIS IS NOT USED BY NSW OPERATOR AND K.I.A ATTITUDE
SO THIS IS WHAT I GET FROM LBT
“Mr. Huang, LBT has a great relationship with the Seal teams on both coasts. We only referred to NSWDG in cases where it was a true collaboration, and we built the item for them. About a year and a half ago NSWDG came to us and requested that we stop putting their initials in any of our labeling, printed materials, website, etc. In the spirit of being a great partner we immediately stopped this practice. There was no explanation given, just a request. Some things are not questioned and this is 1 of them. Obviously, it has no impact on the gear itself. Thank you”
