Stay away from Condor, etc.

2018-02-08 03:48:42 UTC  

Honestly that's the biggest problem with condor, the actual materials are fine but their stitching is

2018-02-08 03:48:46 UTC  


2018-02-08 03:48:53 UTC  

Yes. It's always the stitching

2018-02-08 03:49:43 UTC  

Think I'm gonna grow my hair out and don the bowl

2018-02-08 03:49:49 UTC  

So far what I have is a surplus Molle vest and an sadf chest rig that I wear with an ALICE belt

2018-02-08 03:49:50 UTC  


2018-02-08 03:49:52 UTC  

I saw an easy fix is stitching polyester strips under the seams.

2018-02-08 03:50:14 UTC  

Supposedly it doesn't stretch and saves the stitching

2018-02-08 03:51:02 UTC  

Not the best Chinese shit you can get are the old OD Green chicom chest rigs

2018-02-08 03:52:20 UTC  

Grey Ghost and LBX are a good balance of cost and quality. Authorized econo-lines of Tactical Tailor and London Bridge, respectively.

2018-02-08 03:53:02 UTC  

Platatac is good and has great sales now and again

2018-02-08 03:55:02 UTC  

Same with SKD

2018-02-08 03:55:40 UTC  

Platatac is good I have one of their Echo bags on the back of my Molle vest the problem with them is at the shipping takes for fucking ever

2018-02-08 03:56:03 UTC  

God damn dingoes being on the other side of the planet and shit

2018-02-08 03:56:36 UTC  

Really? I got the last thing I ordered from them in about a week. Guess it depends

2018-02-08 03:56:46 UTC  

Mine took like a month and a half

2018-02-08 03:57:04 UTC  

Damn ._. Noted

2018-02-08 03:57:25 UTC  

But I love the thing, and I like it a lot better than Camelback

2018-02-08 03:58:25 UTC  

Camelbak brand ain't what they used to be, I buy Source for hydro stuff now.

2018-02-08 03:59:08 UTC  

Next acquisition when money allows is a Platatac Spur. I love the London Bridge pack I have but it's falling apart from service use.

2018-02-08 03:59:44 UTC  

I need to get an actual good plate carrier

2018-02-08 03:59:56 UTC  

I'm looking at Ferro Tactical because they have a nice slick carrier

2018-02-08 04:01:03 UTC  

Ferro is good. Actually considering them for armor myself

2018-02-08 04:01:29 UTC  

Try Raptor, had a mate grab one of those over the weekend and it looks great

2018-02-08 04:01:32 UTC  

can't go wrong with a good old alice pack

2018-02-08 04:02:08 UTC  

Well the reason why I picked Ferro is because I don't want to attach anything to the vest itself and they make one without Molle

2018-02-08 04:02:29 UTC  

I use my Alice pack every time I go out with the boys

2018-02-08 04:02:38 UTC  

Good man

2018-02-08 04:02:44 UTC  

My chest rig is First Spear with TT, GG, and other pouches. London Bridge is excellent but expensive

2018-02-08 04:02:45 UTC  

Youre a good man

2018-02-08 04:03:06 UTC  


2018-02-08 04:03:14 UTC  

ALICE packs are great for what they are, but over armor they are an absolutely miserable experience

2018-02-08 04:03:26 UTC  

Unless you get aftermarket frames and such

2018-02-08 04:03:26 UTC  

I'd imagine especially with the frame

2018-02-08 04:03:36 UTC  

Whomst up for chat?

2018-02-08 04:03:47 UTC  

For a bit, sure

2018-02-08 04:03:59 UTC  


2018-02-08 04:04:32 UTC  

I need to find my mic

2018-02-08 04:21:50 UTC
