TACTICAL GEAR: U.S. PALM AK Attack Rack Review

U.S. PALM AK Attack Rack (tight ass jeans not included)

The U.S. PALM AK Attack Rack is a low profile AK rig made of 500d Cordura Nylon that has 4 integrated AK mag pouches and 4 pistol mag pouches (the pistol mag pouches will also hold other stuff like lights, chemical sprays and large folding knives).

The rig is bar tacked on stress points, has boxed stitched Velcro panels (for your ninja patches), the pouches have oversized drain grommets and uses Mil-Spec ITW Nexus hardware (ITW Nexus is a high quality manufacturer of closure components).

Some folks prefer tactical gear that is made of 1000d Cordura Nylon, but lately I have been thinking that the weight savings VS long term lifespan of using 500d instead of 1000d may be a good trade off.

U.S. PALM AK Attack Rack zippered pouch (with 3 extra AK mags stuffed in)

The U.S. PALM AK Attack Rack has a roomy zippered pouch that will hold 3 extra AK mags in sewn-in pokets and tons of other stuff within the pouch itself. Personally I only use rigs that have the zippered pouch feature because I always end up needing extra space for miscellaneous junk.

The cross-back 1 ½” padded shoulder pads are adjustable and connect to the rig with side-squeeze quick release buckles. I am not a big fan of cross-back shoulder straps but I wore this for an entire day of training (without armor underneath) and it was quite comfortable - no neck strangulation that I usually suffer from with most cross-back systems.

One cool little detail is a liner that is sewn inside the mag pouches to help reduce the metal locking lugs on the AK mag from wearing the inside of the mag pouches and to help prevent snagging. I blasted out over 100 mags throughout the day and I didn’t have one instance of the mags snagging (a problem on another brand I have used).

The U.S. PALM AK Attack Rack is made in the USA and is fully Berry Compliant. This is a great rig for stateside work or training and a good choice for low to medium risk OCONUS force protection work.
