GSARGear Review: RCP-1 Pro


GSAR GEAR Review: Coaxsher RCP-1 Pro
This radio chest harness is without a doubt one of the best on the market.
I’ve been using this Coaxsher RCP-1 Pro for about six months now, and it has really proven itself.   It is an extremely functional and sturdy rig.
Form:
The Pro features the following:
-Adjustable main radio holster
-Adjustable GPS/secondary radio holster
-Wide battery/misc equipment pouch
-Narrow writing tools pouch
-Two quick-access pen loops
-Large ziptop main pouch
-Two smaller organizers inside main pouch
-A small loop for hanging a glowstick on
-Removable Mod-U-Lox flashlight clip
-Several grommets and D-rings for attaching other gear
-Secure square-rig back straps

Function:
The RCP-1 Pro is very sturdy and water-resistant. All the pouches are easy to access, but keep the gear very snug and secure, thanks to some well placed elastic straps. There are small loops at the back for tidying up loose straps or attaching other gear. The front buckles unclip and the rig folds down, held in place by elastic straps, presenting a nice mobile writing platform. I have a picture of the straps unclipped below, but better pic here.

There is a flashlight clip included that mounts on the straps. Of all the different lights tested with it I’ve found that it fits Mini-Maglites the best. It’s a little stiff at first, but it holds the light very nicely.

The main pouch is pretty spacious, you can fit two Pelican 1020s side-by side in it, with room to spare. But when the extra space isn’t needed, the rig folds flat against your chest. The rig adjusts to almost any size, and fits securely and comfortably, even with a heavy load.  The rig rides very nicely, you almost forget it’s there, and it allows a nigh-on uninhibited range of motion.

As you can see, this is a seriously high-end radio-rig. Extremely well thought out design and construction, very feature packed and useful. Just about an ideal radio rig for SAR.

    Very nice. doesn’t the writing platform ride way too high to actually write on? I found with some other admin type rigs that you have to lower it way down almost to belt level to be able to really be able to write comfortably..

    GearJunkie:

    The platform is adjustable, it can be lowered to about elbow level, very comfortable to write on, if you have something stiff in the main compartment or the straps tightened down. Otherwise it’s a little floppy. But that’s the case even with the ZNG stuff.

    Forgot to add: I just picked up one of these and it’s pretty friggin’ sweet. The pouch on the far left is perfect for carrying a little container of doggie treats for K-9 SAR.
