I asked my geardo friends the same question, but we couldn't ID it.

It's not a CPC (as suggested because of the buckle) and it's not the BFG LMAC (suggested because of the shape).

The closest thing that I can reference it to is the Platatac ASAD. There are a number of differences though (buckle, shoulder strap padding, cummerbund material, velcro), but the overall shape/style is the same. So my best guess would be that it's a prototype of that.

Nop, the buckle is much smaller and the cummerbund flap is full of PALS (6 or 5 rows), and it has velcro on top of the front.

My take would be something made in the UK.

^^ Exactly. That buckle is probably a personal mod

Well if I'm right and this is an SBS lad. It is likely to be a Platatac ASAD as they had a bunch for trials. They use lot of that kit including the Jedi patch it seems!

It has similarity to the Paraclete HPC GACK but seem to have a flap front. I'm not sure about the shoulder buckle choice and the straps seem to mount really low. but a nice rig anyway.

My guess therefore is UKSF custom from somewhere like C2R FAST in H.

Sounds logical considering the picture was posted on Platatac's Facebook and I think the main point is about the patch...

Platatac's CEO is on the board as well so maybe he might pop in with his insight?

This one doesn't look like the ASAD I've seen (one being likely made in 1000D et the other made in litelock material, both being close to the 6094). On this last one the shoulder straps aren't the same and velcro on top is missing. Plus the kangaroo pouch on the ASAD is missing here.

Or maybe you have seen another version of it that I didn't (I don't know how many there are ^^')
