ok this is straight up amazing
the worst part about wanting new gear is not knowing what you want.
I’m looking for a PC or Chest rig, but if it were a chest rig I want a back panel for hydro. If it were a PC, which I’m leaning more towards, I’d want it to be slender, and not super bulky in the front, like most PCs with…
Eagle Industries RRV. You can get back panels for em.
do they even make them anymore? and I’m not a huge fan of the folding upper chest piece.
Pretty sure they do. Look into the LBT 1961G
Last I saw, there were a few Eagle Industries RRV’s on eBay for about $225 each.
Ew…. RRV…. *puke* chest rig depends on what you want to do… If your getting one to stay light and low pro the 1961 series is to bulky and has to much excess pouches. Go with an HSP D3 instead. And don’t attach a hydro panel just wear a camel back that way you can still get to it and access pouches on it and if necessary ditch it to save weight and become not maneuverable.
I just threw that out there because they came into question. The 1961 or D3 really is the better option. Even if you decide on a full plate carrier, it’s just weird having hydration always fixed to your back. I’ll likely never own a MAP or anything similar because it’s nice to be able to ditch unnecessary stuff. Especially in airsoft.
well, I drink a lot of water, so my hydro would be permanently attached, but not in say, a map pack. just a basic hydro pack, and I’d carry my standard pack over it. so I could ditch it if necessary, but keep my hydro.
You could keep primary hydro in a pack and just keep a water bottle or canteen on first line or something. The easy solution here is indeed the RRV, but I’m sure something else could be figured out. I have an Eagle Industries H-Harness that would work too, although it’s not exactly a chest rig. You can get those on eBay for really cheap. I got a lightly used one in RG for $60 shipped.
I’m leaning more towards a PC. It just seems like the best option for me right now. I like having a lot of molle/pals real estate and chest rigs just wont cut it for me now. All you guys have given great suggestions, but they just aren’t what I’m looking for.
Dat Mayflower APC, doe.
there are a few I’m looking at including the APC.
The APC is amazing seriously I love mine. Just got it two weeks ago.
When do you need 18oz jeans and a thick wool shirt? When protection is paramount. When you are immersed in an abrasive environment where sharp edges of sheet metal and self-tapping screws jut out around blind corners, and would rip or tear a lighter-weight material. For example.
These super heavy slubs by Gustin and this shirt by Woolrich are just that. Sturdy, densely-woven. Sometimes too hot, sometimes uncomfortable, always defensive.
This is not streetwear. This is #workwear.
