That falls apart under real use
Mayflower/VelSys and a few others make good carriers for not too much.
No you queer your playing dress up while I eat a Delious dinner
Stay away from Condor, etc.
Honestly that's the biggest problem with condor, the actual materials are fine but their stitching is
Yes. It's always the stitching
Think I'm gonna grow my hair out and don the bowl
So far what I have is a surplus Molle vest and an sadf chest rig that I wear with an ALICE belt
I saw an easy fix is stitching polyester strips under the seams.
Supposedly it doesn't stretch and saves the stitching
Not the best Chinese shit you can get are the old OD Green chicom chest rigs
Grey Ghost and LBX are a good balance of cost and quality. Authorized econo-lines of Tactical Tailor and London Bridge, respectively.
Platatac is good and has great sales now and again
Same with SKD
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
God damn dingoes being on the other side of the planet and shit
Really? I got the last thing I ordered from them in about a week. Guess it depends
Mine took like a month and a half
Damn ._. Noted
But I love the thing, and I like it a lot better than Camelback
Camelbak brand ain't what they used to be, I buy Source for hydro stuff now.
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.
I need to get an actual good plate carrier
I'm looking at Ferro Tactical because they have a nice slick carrier
Ferro is good. Actually considering them for armor myself
Try Raptor, had a mate grab one of those over the weekend and it looks great
can't go wrong with a good old alice pack
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
I use my Alice pack every time I go out with the boys
My chest rig is First Spear with TT, GG, and other pouches. London Bridge is excellent but expensive
Youre a good man
ALICE packs are great for what they are, but over armor they are an absolutely miserable experience
Unless you get aftermarket frames and such
I'd imagine especially with the frame
Whomst up for chat?
For a bit, sure
