The Thing 1 expansion chassis is a low profile chest rig accessory designed to increase the load-bearing and storage capabilities of the core Micro Fight Chassis. It provides the end user with an intermediary configuration that is more robust than a stand-alone Micro Fight, but lighter and more compact than the Thing 2. The Thing 1 features two side pouches that will hold various radio unit models, two 30-round 5.56 magazines or any other equipment comparable in size.
The side pouches offer an improved solution to the legacy expander wings, and are designed to accept multiple types of pouch closures. The kit includes material to integrate either a shock cord loop closure system, or a non-elastic velcro closure tab to secure heavier items like radios. The sides of the pouches also feature dual-use attachment interfaces. There are 4 single-column MOLLE attachment points (one on each side of the pouches), as well as shock cord loop pass-throughs designed to provide a low-profile tourniquet or glove storage solution.

NOTE: You can use the Fastex buckles included with the Micro Fight Chest rig to mount The Thing 1 to its straps. If you are using a different chest rig or no longer have the buckles, you can purchase more on our website. If you are intending to integrate the Thing 1 with a LV/119 Plate carrier, we recommend you wearing it as a chest rig over a slick front plate bag.
