Does the VEGA v2 Upgrade come with ProArms?Updated 2 years ago

If you are upgrading to the VEGA from the Ready Rig GS Standard, you must purchase the ProArm Upgrade separately. The VEGA v2 is a separate product and requires the ProArms to be installed on your vest to function properly. 

1x ProArm Upgrade: available and in stock on our website:

If you purchased your GS Vest before 2021, we recommend getting the following upgrades to the vest chassis:

  • Bent Waist Plate Roller Upgrade - this item is great if you have an older GS. It reduces the noise of the system:
  • GS Belt Replacement v2 - We added a new metal buckle that replaces the old plastic buckle.
