Well nearly any adjustable rig will fit you, especially larger plate carriers as they tend to fit large on most people. All you'll have to do is loosen out everything but you'll get access to 100% of the MOLLE retail unlike if you're a small person.

 

Recommended rigs would be: Warrior assault systems RICAS, a RAV, RRV style chest rig (designed to have armour underneath so lots of room), British army Mk.IV and I see no reason why the one you linked wouldn't fit

I'm a 40 inch waist as well, not as tall as you, but I use a Condor chest rig that is fully adjustable and comes in different colours. It's also a pretty versatile bit of kit.

I'm 42" Chest 38" Waist and my WAS RICAS needs to be a little tighter than it is actually designed to go for it to fit me snugly, but that is without plates mind.

What you need, Adam, is a mate about the same size as you to go halves on a RICAS and both of you wear it at the same time, facing back to back for 360 deg vision and arc of fire :lol:

That'd be awesome if you got loads of people doing it in one game, it'd be like a 2 legged skirmish :D

i know that feeling first vest i got was the cross draw one and was to short for my body and a little tight then went on to what i use now the viper south africa vest its a perfect fit but crap at holding the g36 mags so i decided to change my hole out load to make me fit with a more moden look and scrap the DPM and make it so i can change pouches dependant on the gun that am using hents the molle. so when i have the new vest i will be selling the SA vest on here lol

I haver 46" chest (52 inch belly) and I use a Warrior 901 rig. No problems getting it big enough (in fact there's still enough strapping flapping in the breeze to get annoying!).

Yea any RRV style chest rig of which the 901 is one will fit pretty much anyone and anything

 

(I'm actually just putting one of mine up in the sales section)
