FOR FUCKS SAKE ANONS FERRO CONCEPTS IS 20% BF!!!Can A2 or some other gear queen list me a Slickster load out. Like mag pocket accessories, dump pouch? Do I get the 6x6 side plate add on?! I have side plates!
Anyone know what chest rig is in pic related? Or something similar?
>>51182283He is an airsofter from /fa/ so it's probably airshit.
>>51182254A2 recommended me a guy on ebay who makes pretty high quality Haley Strategic clones.https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/321990061198?hash=item4af81a6c8e:g:IZQAAOSwoydWp8zq
>>51180061I always thought the HRT was a cool carrier. https://hrttacticalgear.com/product-category/carriers/
>>51182383Well it's made by a russian guy in russia, so that shouldn't be surprising. Buy the HS one if that's an issue for you.

>>51182503Your a godsend
I have very little in the way of sustainment gear all I’ve got is an LBT 3 day can someone please help a humble retard out and tell me exactly what I need to buy so I don’t get kilt in the streets of dysentery
>>51181964Just get a USGI fleece beanie cap or a normie one at store. Will keep your head plenty warm.
>>51182542Get a 60L+ rucksack. Sustainment gear mostly goes in that with a smaller amount going into your assault bag when need be. Sleeping bag, sleeping pad, water filter, extra water, extra food, water proofing gear/weather appropriate layers, are pretty much what you'll need to start with.
>>51182690Ushankas are comfy but don't work well with helmets.
>>51182542Check out Outdoor Gear Review for general camping/long term stuff. Mostly, you need shelter and the ability to boil water.
>>51182283It's one of the SRVV chest rigs, can be had from Grey Shop or SRVV's site.

>>51182821The only appeal of slavshit bootlegs are having options for obscure patterns like ATACs, otherwise I dont see the point

Anyone have recommendations for a good assault pack? Preferably something a little more than 20L of volume.
>>51182754Get used to it. People are scared
>>51181897Anyone got the old /gq/ pastebin?
>>51183548Is that a Mehler Vario dick plqte?
>>51182359Nice. I’ll order one of those with it.
>>51184243Gearqueer.bitbucket.io What are you looking for though? Just ask.
>>51183548How do you keep it from hitting your dick when you run? I remember an Anon telling me to strap it to my legs somehow. Mines only level IIIA so it’s fairly lite.
>>51182119Mayflower 24 hour assault pack. Neato kit combo.
>>51183524I like my MR 3DAP
>>51183524LBT/Eagle 3 day. Bonus point for the old surplus with the alice attachments. ATS RAID 2 if you want a tube that you can configure. Kelty MAP 3500, cheaper alternative that comes in some cool guy colors.
>>51182359How does the quality compare to HS?
>>51185350>>51183524I like the 48
To whoever was talking to me in the last thread about spartan armor, are they really chinkshit?
>>51185813their carriers are. Any steel armor is garbage. Hesco, Hoplite, or RMA.
>>51185882Looking on RMA, i don't think they carry any of those, are their plate carriers any better?
>>51182119What rifle is that? Some sort of AR-180 derivative?
these measurements are...weirdi dont understand them
>>51185890You may have to buy the plate carrier and plates from different stores. I've bought Hesco's from Esstac and Hoplite's direct from based Hoplite. OP Tactical has a decent selection of carriers, but doesn't always stock armor. OffBase has Hesco's in stock. https://offbase.co/products/hesco-4401-level-iv-stand-alone-body-armor-plate-shooters-cuthttps://www.optactical.com/platecarriers.html>>51185936you need to size yourself for plates first, then you simply select the carrier size based on that. It's not rocket appliances.
>>51185967this one looks good, and it's only about 330 dollars, anything wrong with condor?
>>51182254Don't get a slickster. Get a MEPC or LEPC if you really want a "slick" carrier.
>>51185895Swedish AK5c. They're based off of FNC's
>>51185971friend, where have you been for the past 10 years? Condor is chinese airshit. Is there a budget for this?>>51182254https://youtu.be/oiY8NiAUngM
>>51186027I have been poor for the last ten years, and i still am but i want to protect myself and my dada budget of about 1k, assuming they take paypal
>>51186039how about banhsee?
>>51186025ah, I didn't know about those. This one looks like it's airsoft from reddit.
>>51186039https://offbase.co/pages/saleThank me later.Pick plates according to what you need. Nobody can tell you what you need, judge your environment and what you'll be doing. Don't get a slickster. Rest of the carriers are fine, just depends again on what you're doing.
>>51186039>>51186050You can have a budget, but don't keep trying to jump on a sale. Armor and a PC needs to be quality. The banshee is made by Shellback, it's OK. If your budget is $1k for 2x setups you could do something like what I've listed below. But do some more research please. This anon is also helpful >>51186082 you need to define what you intend to do with it. Hoplite Swimmer Cut Level IV 10x12 - $329WTF Plate Carrier 13 - $100or Defense Mechanisms MEPC - $140or Beez Plate Carrier MOLLE - $95
>>51186145just general urban jungle defense from future lawyers, so i doubt i'll need more then handgun round defense, but some rifle too would be nice just incase
>>51186065It doesn't look like airsoft magazines, but as far as I'm aware there's no way to get a real one without being in the Swedish army.
>>51186145>but don't keep trying to jump on a saleblack friday technically isn't here yet so, i want to see what they pull out for that
How’s y’all’s Black Friday shopping going?
>>51181897looking for a chest rig. Is the SADF Pattern 83 Chest Rig from the Kommando Store worth the price?
>>51186750You could get a chicom for a lot cheaper and add the velcro yourself
>>51186394what am I looking at here?where was this?
>>51181897What's the best non-boot option for hiking and innawoods stuff? I've heard about technical shoes, for like mountain climbing? Are those any good, or is there something else that is better?
>>51186953Trail runners. Don’t get approach shoes. Also most Salomons and other lower cut boots barely count as boots. Just go try some on at your local retailer
I misread while I was ordering from dara holsters. Got a g19 holster instead of p80. I can force my pistol in and out but it doesnt draw in a useable way. What are the odds I can heat up and reshape the holster to make it work? Its sitting in front of the space heater now.
>>51186394im jealous, real black friday isnt until friday though!
>>51186953Check out Merrel MOAB II’s, its a boot but god fucking damn are they the most comfortable footwear I have ever owned. The pair I own is waterproof, like legit submerge your foot in a puddle and swirl it around and stay dry, but the tradeoff is your feet will sweat a little more. If youre doing serious hiking you should have extra socks anyways. In any case, I wear them all the time since theyre so comfy. Also wore them for hiking obviously, as well as a lot of paintball, and theyve held up with zero issues.They also have a sneaker version if you want to be a little herb.
>>51186953I bought a pair of Salomon X Ultra lows which is basically a boot shoe. It still has the rock plate and everything else with the sole that makes a boot a boot, just not the ankle support. So it’s a lighter weight, more nimble choice of footwear for when I want to cover long distances for like a day hike or something. For backpacking I still use my Quests for the ankle support because the extra weight means I’m more likely to fuck up my ankles, but if I’m not carrying weight it’s nice to have lightweight footwear. If you’re really tough you can go all the way to trail runners, I think at this point most AT thru-hikers just use trail runners, but I feel too much of the trail under my feet when I wear trail runners so my feet get fatigued fairly quickly. But they’re going to be your lightest weight practical option, so if you’ve got tough feet and don’t get foot fatigue easily then go for it.
someone remind me tomorrow to tape up the abbree logo
>>51187457>rifles painted to match carpet environmentbased
>>51187075I wore through the soles in a pair of summer hiking IN 4 FUCKING MONTHS. Yes they are comfy. No they are not a fucking boot. Its a casual jogging shoe styled like a boot. They didnt suck while they were getting abraded to shit, but they did not last a bit. If you actually go /out/ in these expect them to last maybe 250-300 miles of hiking. They are toast after that. Maybe its worth the light weight and no "break in' period. IDK. Ive actually gone through two pair. Very meh on them at this point.
atacs postan wheres my fellow chads at
>>51187656I had them and thought they were great. Started wearing them to work and they only lasted six months in a wet environment until the sole separated from the rest of the boot. Wont ever buy again. They're made for people who do 4 moderate sub10mile hikes a year. I moved to portland and every yuppie I see in town wears them for fashion.
>>51186050its a shame they dont sell it in level 3
>>51183548Got the same kraut dick plate. I need to buy or make a multicam carrier for it still.
>>51182951I haven't checked /gq/ in forever. Didn't buy the carrier just because shipping is pretty fucked right now so I just got an SPC. Also Bearwood Armory never got back to me on if it was in stock or not.
>>51188148>>51187747you're annoying as fuck and your dumb camo pattern doesn't even match your environment stop shitting up /gq/ with your garbage posts begging for validation of your stupid purchase go play airsoft and pretend to be le ebin russian you immature shit

>>51181897Please help me anons, I'm a little retarded. This is my first plate carrier and I'm trying to figure out a set up that will work. Should I buy a holster or use that space for more magazines? should I switch anything around in this? Please help
>>51185990my mepc is growing on me. I'm still not a huge fan of their take on 'modular placard with velcro everywhere wrapped in more velcro everywhere' idea. You can't get too creative without it feeling really gross and unstable, but I like their 3mag placard base (a lot) and I think just putting a full sized flap and wrapping it to the 3mag base will result in a decent placard.That having been said, I kinda with I would've just got the mepc, shoulder pads, mag pouch for cummerbund, some tq sleeves, and slapped a haley d3crm on the front. DM's customer service is super bro tier and have had no problems with me sending back stuff I tried and didn't like. Big ups for that. The only fuck up I got from them was a tq sleeve didn't have hook velcro on one side of the flap and I sent it back to have it replaced no problem. Everything else I got from them has been super high quality.
TOMORROWS THE BIG DAY
>>51186394um...what code gets you 100% off of nvg?pls share
>>51189157...so you intend on running a pistol and 5 pistol mags, 1 rifle mag on your carrier?am I correct in thinking this?
>>51189193I legit don’t even know what to buy I don’t really need anything. I’ve been good all year and haven’t spent much and saved a shit load so I’d like to treat myself but the only thing I really want (ARC LEAF ATOM LT) is oos until next cold time
>>51189217The three mag pouch is to replace the two, again I'm not very sharp. I don't know if it would be better to keep the pistol magazines on the cumberbund or the front placard for ergonomics or to save the front placard for all rifle magazines, I'm just not sure
>>51189184I like my MEPC so far but will probably get a UBG/DRIP placard or something similar instead of theirs.
>>51185216I was looking at a deal which I think looks good for 2 hesco special threat plates and a slickster plate carrier on offbase for about 400$ and was just wanting to look up the general consensus on these items.
>>51189157 You should get a holster and a belt for that holster. Belt gear is just as important as a chest rig or plate carrier, in my opinion.
>>51189334Lucas has the L210s on saleHe also has 4601 level 4s for $900/pair which is a really good deal
>>51189246you should always, always prioritize your rifle over your pistol. it's far and away the superior weapon. so your best real estate should always go to supporting your rifle. as such, I'd go with a 3 mag placard for your ar mags on the front of your carrier (in your case, get an insert for your kangaroo pouch). I know soap had is pistol strapped to his plate carrier in mw2, but I don't think you should do it irl. that pistol needs to be reserved for a battle belt. I would also say don't put any pistol mags on your pc at all. that left cummerbund realestate is valuable too, I would use it for another rifle mag.So in short, 3 ar mags on the front of your carrier (get a good insert for your kangaroo pouch, maybe get some of haley's kydex inserts if reindexing them is a bit hard...and you might need some magpuls to get them out of that kangaroo pouch easily), one rifle mag on your left cummerbund, no pistol mags. I'm assuming you don't have a rifle yet, which is cool we all start somewhere, but plan ahead I had a mayflower apc and tried to double up stuff on the front of the carrier and it felt like I was a pregnant woman, so maybe don't plan on loading too much up front until you play around a bit. that having been said, you might want a decent little admin pouch up there.
>>51189355also, I like the idea of the kangaroo pouch, but it's a little deep imo. when you put mags in there you'll see what I mean.
>>51189355This is pretty good advice but depending on your front placard you can definitely stick a pistol mag or two on there no problem. For most situations, the main goal of your web gear should be feeding your main weapon. Which is ideally a long gun. If you are absolutely dead broke then you can consider just slapping a dump pouch on a belt and wear the carrier slick-ish. When you eventually get proper pouches you can just shuffle stuff around. It's not a bad method and you'll want a dump pouch eventually anyway.
>>51189355Thank you anon! I'll get busy with it. Will post an update in another /gq/ thread later on
>>51189461>Will post an update in another /gq/ thread later onat this rate it will likely still be the same thread

>>51189354Nice I am waiting to see what deals he runs for black Friday. Thanks for the recommendations and have a happy thanksgiving.
>>51189763Do you own a Ferro Bison belt? I don't own any of my gear but 'my' Bison belt I've been wearing for the last 4 months is a significant downgrade from tying string around your waist or mexican carrying. It's fucking garbage like everything that joke of a company Ferro Concepts has ever produced. >the cobra bucklesticks every fucking time you try to take off the belt>the D ringis too small to comfortably fit multiple carabiners and it twists/moves the whole belt buckle when you're clipped into anything e.g. a tiedown point or dragging something>rigidityNot even that rigid despite the fancy plastic. You could get the same effect by cutting strips off a plastic milk bottle and stapling it to some fabric. >the molle webbingthe material is dangerously thin and I expect that my mag pouches will rip off at some point. >the inner beltit's the only good thing about the whole belt setup but only because it's just a thin strip of velcro which you can get anywhere>all in all verdict on the Ferro Concepts Bison1/10 it's a flaming pile of shit. The only reason why I haven't literally thrown it in the trash is because it's not mine it's issued equipment and it still works for now but it's going to die on me when I least want it to. You're unironically better off flushing $215 down the toilet and stuffing your magazines in your pockets.

>>51190177>what deals he runs for black Fridaythose are the deals did you not sign up for the newsletter you stupid niggerhappy genocide day fellow colonizer
>>51186750No. >>51189157As other anon's have mentioned, get a belt and move all your pistol stuff to the belt. 3-4x rifle mags up front, one more either side if necessary, or a radio off to the side so you can access it. IFAK should be easily accessible with either hand. Is the admin pouch really necessary?

>>51185315You can't. There is no suit of armor in the human record that has a dick flap in front, because it robs you of energy every time you take a step. The only exception is a suit of armor from Mycenaean Greece intended for (we think) chariot fighting. Everybody else has -- well, this illo does as good a job of explaining it as any. Sawing the dick plate in half and letting them dangle from the plate carrier like tassets would be an improvement, except that the military industrial complex is fucking retarded.Here endeth the sermon. Get rid of that shit.

>>51196928https://www.optactical.com/fispfionwigp.htmlIt’s not as configurable or comfy as most combat focused carriers but if you’re really 0% invested, it’s a fantastic brand and exceptional quality and cheap enough for you to blow on plates
https://hrttacticalgear.com/product/hrt-hrac-adaptive-plate-carrier/ someone here should really get one of these and try it out tho.
>>51197037>BLACK OUT OF STOCKHow dare they
>>51197017I just thought that it wasn’t named. Kind of like that mirror demon or some shit. Yeah, I’m onthe fence. Probably better off with the jpc 2. I want to be able to use placards, but also plan to use smersh with it from time to time until I work out my mag pouches situation.
>>51197054yeah the jpc 2.0 is good if you dont want to put too much shit on it just like the slickster. Dont be like these fucking reddit niggers with a whole fucking combat load out on a slickster/jpc. Those carriers arent really made for that and people are too retarded to realize it. Im still waiting for the stupid dank robber placard to come in coyote but dude is taking forever to do it.

>>51197037i mean it looks nice but the fact that it says a specific need makes me wearyi can spend a little bit more for a plate carrier, what else ya got?
Pretend you're doing it all over again. House burned down and insurance paid out.How do you carry plates, water and 6 mags?
>>51197144I might start there then. In my mind I’m thinking it’s 3-5 mags max. 2 of which aren’t even on the carrier itself. Worst case, I could still run it slick + smersh if I wanted to do so. I always liked the look of the dank robber but didn’t realize it also came as a placard. Coyote best.
>>51197245Plate carrier, mag pouches, and a "hydration bladder".
>>51197249yeah the fucker doesnt have it in coyote. I have been trying to buy it for almost a year now.

>>51187075They're okay, I've had 4 pairs over the years and in in my 5th now for two reasons really: they're cheap boots that are still some what decent on quality, and they come broken in out of the box imo.With that being said 3 out of the 4 pairs have all had a similar issue were the gortex "sock" would eventually fail on either boot but always on this inside of the toe box by the big toe. Secondly the outsole while very grippy and some what flexible is very soft and as another anon has said will not last. Also eventually the outsole will eventually seperate from the rest of the boot if it gets wet enough consistently enough. Theyrengreat cheap hiking boots though that will do the job for light day hikes on casual to intermediate level stuff, they're decent landscaping/hardscaping boots that will last all summer but have a pair of asics training shoes I prefer over the moabs... sorry for the blog post but there you go

BLACK FRIDAY HELP REQUESTED!Been looking for a light-ish belt to pair with my mepc. Will only have a sidearm (g19), and 3 mags (2 pistol/one rifle or 2 rifle/one pistol, and a dump pouch. Ideally a belt I could slap on regular clothes, so no 2in. inner belt requirement.Been looking for a belt today.Was looking at:Ronin TF (don't like the mandatory 2in. inner belt you have to order with it and lol is it ever thicc) Tyr Tactical (strongly considering)Blue Alpha Gear (worried about running into compatibility with mounting some items...not sure if this is a big deal. will velcro one-wraps be as secure as malice clips?)AWS SMU (what I'm prob going to buy).any insight from people who've used these belts?
>>51199201I think he is running a pair of large hesco 4400 level 4s
>>51199529Also he is running side plates I'm just not sure what they are.
>>51196828for fuck's sake, watch some videos or just ask more questions here. A placard is (usually) 3x mag pouches that attach with quick clips and velcro to the front of the PC. You can also get ones in 4x mags or you can use a chest rig as a placard and have more GP pouches. Since most PC's velcro closed, the placard flips up out of the way when you put it on and then goes over the velcro. >>51197181tru-spec is slightly better airshit tier. I have a couple pairs of pants for beaters. I don't think I'd trust $50 pants to actually be waterproof.>>51197881It has MOLLE you retard, you can put mag pouches on the front.>>51197926OP Tactical
>>51199208Danke>>51199265Will check out Mepc, thanks. All votes have gone to jpc so far.
>>51199519Tyr is less stiffAWS is more stiff You’re fine either way
I got pic related at home depot the other day just cause it was cheep. Are these filters rated for things like tear gas or other riot agents? Is this entirely useless anyway, because of the lack of eye protection? Whats the cheapest full face option that is compatible with these filters?Real gas masks are expensive bros
>>51200174>Is this entirely useless anyway, because of the lack of eye protection? Yes, also I don't think those filters will do shit against chemical agents.
>>51200174Go on Mira saftey website use this code and get 20%off BFCM20
>>51199519I have the ronin TF belt. You dont necessarily need to use the inner velcro belt unless you plan on doing a lot of sprinting/ jumping/ crawling/ attaching a personal retention lanyard. I like it because even if im wearing sweatpants or jeans with a regular belt, I can very quickly just throw the belt on and the velcro hooks on the inside keep it secure enough. As for the belt I love it, incredibly sturdy, somewhat low profile and very light weight. It looks really cool too.

Slickster vs mepc vs spiritus?
>>51203514The mepc is probably the best. It's a slickster you can put shit on without spending another 200 bux, and the qd cummerbund options they have are cool. Spiritus is kind of annoying with their buy everything piece by piece schtick. I understand the concept but mepc + bund + whatever placard from whichever brand you like is a easy and good to go.
Are there any lense covers I could use to make an existing LED light (Rien) shine IR? I am capable of jury rigging something if I know what kind of lense would work.
>>51203602Fair enough. Primarily trying to justify the mepc over the slickster due to sales. Are there any other carriers in this price point I should be looking at? Would the mepc function alright as a slick if needed?
>>51202910Then buy/use one
>>51203653Low profile is a meme with hard plates, if you want concealable a soft vest is the way. Any pc can be slick if you dont put shit on it, but it's much harder to add stuff to a pc that doesnt have attachment points inherently. I have a velocity lwpc from op tac that is really nice, but the bund it came with is not qd and I dont really want to buy a whole new one. It's not a deal breaker but having to screw with the velcro for putting it on and taking it off sucks.
>>51203501Look up Tu Lam on someplace like gunindustrydouchebags or something. >>51203514Def MEPC. This from a guy who had a spiritus
What are the best horizontal and vertical molle tq pouches?Is the BFG micro still g2g, or is something better out there?Just bought a ton of gear, need a few things to finish off.
>>51203878Fair enough, so qd isn’t exactly a bad thing in that regard? I’m primarily wanting something slim to where it won’t interfere with my lbe/ghetto Alice rig, at least up until I can get a proper placard.
>>51203514of those options? MEPC for sure.don't recommend thinking you're going to go too hard with a huge customized placard. I think the gucci somewhat slick setup isMEPC, molle back, molle front, shoulder pads, hybrid qd cummerbund.Good retail Placard w/ 3 mags + full admin pouch/2 half admin pouchescouple of DM's tq sleeves, extra DM mag pouch
>>51205484Mind listing your full setup? Just ordered MEPC and need some inspiration.
>>51205484Where's your brand ambassador cat?
>>51205820I'm still in the process of trying things out to see what I do and don't like.The carrier iteslf has grown on me a lot. At first it didn't feel nearly as sturdy as my old mayflower apc, but that's mostly b/c the apc is so old in its design. The mepc's plate bags are great. The only thing I don't care for are the straps. They're low profile and all, but the are too narrow around the head (you'll see what I mean when you put it on the first time). And the adjustment on them is a pain in the ass. It also isn't great for weight dispersion, but not terrible either. if you haven't picked up their padded cablemanagement shoulder sleeves...pick them out rn. Hope you got the qd hybrid cummerbund btw, it's great.I got their small direct injury case and it was way too small for some of the stuff I got (bought 6in. etd like a tard) so went with a large but as you can see from the pics, the thing is fuckhuge. So I swapped out some ifak gear and am going back to a small with their fanny pack system. I'm keeping the large case to sore nv in eventually (they make a padded insert for that purpose). I got their 3mag placard base, which I really like. I first tried to put a half zipper admin pouch and 2x placard tqs on top of it and wrap it in a molle pouch but it was...messy. It never felt stable...felt and looked really slapdash. Constantly made velcro noises...it's just not a great system. I sent all that back for a refund (no hassles from DM's customer service) and am trying a full admin pouch and wrapped with a velcro placard wrap. I think it'll be much more stable and really functional. I got 2 of their tq sleeves and they're secure and all...bu tone didn't have hook velcro on it, again, sent it back no issues. This is the only mistake i've seen them make, everything they put out is perfect other than that - it happens.I also got their ar mag for my cummerbund and it's great. really secure, good retention without being overkill.
>>51181897dwarves vs orcs
>>51205820>>51205913so yah, I'll have their 3mag placard with a full admin pouch on top of it secured with a velcro placard wrap. 2x tourniquet sleeves, one dangling below the carrier, one to the right of the placard (leaving the left open for a radio pouch when I get to that point), 1x ar mag on left cummerbund. small direct injury pouch with their fanny pack strap. I'm sure this will be a good setup, but I think you can do a bit better buying something like the robber's chest rig or haley's rig and slapping it on your mepc. and picking up a fanny pack like the spiritus one and just using that.all that having been said, I'm going to stick with DM. The stuff is really well made, and though I think the modular placard velcro extravaganza idea is kind of a bust, their quality is great and they implement all the qol features you'd expect, mesh cummerbunds, nice breathable padding inside of bags, qd tubes, no buckles where you shoulder your rifle, great materials and stitching. I'll let ya'll know how their recondite bag is in a few weeks.
>>51205913>>51205968Thanks for the in-depth reply. This is going to be my first setup ever so I really appreciate it. Good to hear that they customer service seems pretty great. It seems like no company is capable of making a perfect all in one system so I'm not surprised about some of their stuff not being ideal. Good luck with your trial and error though! I'll be waiting
>>51205968Oh also, I went with the 3 inch elastic QD cummerbund did I fuck up?
>>51205842you're thinking of the other DM shill. I have a dog.
>>51206028Should have gotten the 5" QD you can probably email them and ask to change since it won't ship right away anyways.
fun fact. Tyr Tactical belt currently have a 90-120 day lead time. aws it is!
I bought a Slickster, a HS D3CRX with Hanger, and set of SAPI plates today. How bad did I fuck up? I impulse bought so badly.
>>51206741>shitstershit meme plate carrier which is uncomfortable with anything heaver than $2000 plates>the worst haley rigD3CRX is too wide to integrate as a placard and the pistol mag pouches are just stupid the mayflower chest rigs are better options>hangerit's not 2019 nobody uses danglers anymore the dick plate was universally reviled and putting a pouch in that same space is just as annoying unless you're standing up>SAPI platesthe plates was probably the only good thing you bought and that's if you got a recent revision
>>51206741so you got a big .308 rig..and are pairing it with a flimsy slickster? let me guess, you got lvl3+ 'tested to nij standards' plates.
>>51206807Hoplite plates. They were lighter than Hesco for the money.>>51206826God Damnit!!!What the fuck are you serious about the Slickster? What if your plates are like 6.5lbs?>>51206829No I got lvlIV triple curve plates.
>>51206868If you got the 26605's, they are good and comfortable for being as heavy as they are. good buy.but they are going to kill your shoulders in a slickster.
is there a good guide for layering and what kind of "tactical" merino wool shit I can buy outside of socks?
>>51207016That’s what I got…JFC is there any way to make them easier on the shoulders? Pads?
>>51185519+10 cool points for Buc-ee
>>51207059yah, padded sleeves will help, but minimalist carriers aren't made for weight dispersion, so it'll suck regardless. better start doing shrugs, nigga, you're gonna need those traps toughened up.
>>51207084Shieeet if big traps fix it I’m Gucci. I have a LBT 6094 but it’s in coyote. I bought the Slickster and HS rig in multiGay. Im assuming that the 6x6 side armor pockets for the Slickster are retarded to get right?
>>51182119Why do people buy these ugly fucking micro sights? Such a beautiful rifle and you go and ruin it with this hideous little chode of an optic. Shameful.
>>51206868Slickster is shit my dude. Like the other guy said >>51206826Hayley's shit is too wide, Mayflower makes many different better placards.Yea the fanny pack/dick pouch is /out/, 2019 called it wants it's dick pouch back. Try running with that in full kit.
>>51207146>Micro sights They work pretty damn well and have excellent battery life
>>51207152Fuck fuck fuck. I’m so gd stupid. Like $350 down the drain.
>>51207133I would say that's retarded, yes. It's a minimalist, slick carrier, you dont' want to be carrying 20lbs of plates and 40lbs of gear on it.If you're wanting to go heavy, get a crye.>>51207178just cancel the order or send it back. worst case scenario is that you'll eat a 15% restocking fee.
>>51207194I probably should just use my LBT 6094. I just liked the idea of having a slick carrier for throwing on if I have to try to drive out of downtown. I live in a city that had riots in April 2020. They burned cars on my street(I have a parking garage). But ever since then I’ve been paranoid and want a kit to get out of town by car or fight my way out if I get caught and don’t leave ahead of time.I’m across from a park and I watched the fucking antifa people gather, sit in their circles chanting sing song with a person on a megaphone and then get up and fucking torch shit.
>>51207178It's ok we all have learned/been there. Just research beforehand.
>>51207291I thought I had. The gd gear queens on here have Slicksters and GT on Jewtube says it’s the second fucking coming of carriers. He’s probably a gd shill and I got crypto Jewed. Hopefully they will cancel the order.
>>51207273if it's an anti-jogger vest, maybe keep something light and throw lvl3+s in it. keep the lbt (assuming its an old one before their qc went to shit) for big boi patroling or lugging around the lvl4s.
>>51207364nobody on here knows anything about gear except a small handful. GT is a glorified POG at this point and fucks trannies.Rule of thumb is if it sounds like hype it probably is. Spook-tier oper8ers aren't gonna be capping mudslimes with the latest GUCCI fad carrier, they are using proven gear.
>>51207381Yes sir. It’s a 6094 from 2013 I think. That’s a good idea. If they won’t cancel or charge a restocking fee I’ll wait for a deal on glorified pistol plates and run super lightweight on it. I really do need a second setup to throw over my old lady if we are fleeing the city. I can’t express to you all how quickly the fucking vermin gathered and how fast it was unsafe here when the riots got going. I keep a go bag in the front closet now. We are getting the fuck out the second it looks like they are going to riot again.
>>51207388So basically I need to just kit out my LBT 6094. I have a triple mag pouch on it but I don’t know what else to put on it. I want a pouch up front to carry some shit and a led pack.
>>51207420if you're just worried about cultural enrichment, 3+'s will be fine, or 3++'s if you want to be fancy. blacks don't really know much about ballistics, nor dot hey care to learn. they'll either be rocking the shittiest, cheapest m193 out of a 7in. ar15 or 'dem green tips nigga'...out of a 9in. ar15.If you're worried about feds or military, lvl 4's are necessary as m80a1's will rip right through lvl 3's and blast your organs out of your back.

>>51207484Very happy for you. Enjoy your comfy new coat.>>51207471I’m just worried about getting my vehicle shot at while I flee a riot. Or if my garage is blocked and I have to leave on foot. This shit was a larp two years ago. Until I can get a new job and permanently leave this shit hole I want to get protected from the human debris that crawls out of the sewers to loot every chance they get.
>>51207437I can tell you what I have on my setup if that gives you ideas.>up fronttriple mag, shears, any other quick access items (TQ, chems, etc)>left sidesingle mag pouch>right sidesmall GP pouch>topPC has built in storage area, no need to add more bulk/bullshit. PID patch.>rearzip on utility backpack, hydration bladder, more medical if needed, extra ammo>belteverything else not listed, pistol/rifle second line, blowout kit, dump pouch, holster, grimlocks for holding random bullshit.I try to put the least crap on my PC as possible for freedom of movement and less weight on shoulders if i can put it on my belt I will.
>>51207538What belt do you use?
>>51207554Blue Alpha Gear, but any of the standard 2 piece belts people make nowadays will do. Ronin tactics, Ferro Concepts, etc.They make removing and quickly attaching them a lot easier. Most have a quick release buckle as well.
