Would a 556 version of pic related have any significant pros or cons compared to something like an ALICE pouch? I've never used one, but it seems like it'd conform more to your body and get in the way less.
>>56907463what model nikes?
>>56907750i made a chest rig one, there are placards on the ammo pouch guide.
>>56907588>the deal with gerber?Nothing. He's just being a snobby little shit to give his shallow life meaning. It's a form of fascism.
>>56907588Shit steel with stupid prices.
>>56908822Gerber sucks ass, you'd know this if you actually used their products.
>>56908822Eh, Gerber's quality is shoddy enough to warrant it. I've had to send back a Gerber Suspension several times and it's still not right.Granted, pretty hard to fuck up an hatchet shaped crowbar.
>>56908890>pretty hard to fuck up an hatchet shaped crowbar.You'd be surprised. They ship them with an ungrounded blade.
>>56908822>fascism “And here’s why that’s a good thing”

>>56908141besides sticking out the same amount as having a double pouch mag pouch while taking up the space of two pouches while having 1 less mag
>>56909300i broke that maul after splitting only four cords of wood frustrating because I can sort of only blame myself but also why is the head so irreparable? If I had bought an oldfangled one I could have just remade a handle and been splitting and warm rn. It looks like you've never used yours; do not hit the neck on the wood even though it seems to be and is supposed to be okay to fuck up with that design.

Thoughts on Danner RAT Goretex boots?
>>56910075cheap if you get them surplus, durable, heavy. They make good shitkickers
>>56910075Gay and heavy, get a pair of bates. Danners only for garrison because they look nice.
>>56910089Worth it for my only pair if gtx boots?>>56910090Got a link to the Bates? I'm in need of a pair of Goretex boots
>>56910118Just look at their USMC line. Most are gortex lined. I'd recommend against Lites unless you're a faggot pog or want to buy them monthly.
>>56910118>Worth it for my only pair if gtx boots?it depends if what you are going to use them for. They are durable, resoleable, tall, goretex boots but they are heavy and can be uncomfortable. If you plan to hike alot or daily wear them then get something lighter. my prefrence is lowa zephyrs.
>>56907808I feel like the aptum and all the other scalable carriers are abortions
>>56908822I mean some people can actually afford quality knives but you do you babe.

>>569095234800, 4800LV, SAS Flex Plate, and Blackbeard plates are also uncertified. Most high-end plates are not NIJ certified, for that matter. It's not a requirement. Also the Colossus is rated to VPAM-12, which is a hell of a lot tougher than NIJ Lvl IV. Shotstop's problem is a lot of undisclosed and scummy cheat rings. Which plates of theirs have ceramic and which have the foam ring? Who knows?
>>56911027>nigger faggotare usmc inclement weather shirts good?
Alright, I'm back for another lashing after doing some of the adjustments y'all suggested.>Plz forgive for being in my jammies>Still working on getting thigh holster adjusted properly and getting belt centered>Moved mags from hip to chest, and less bulky pouches>Moved belly bag to hip>Moved dump pouch from cummerbund to hip>Trying to find a place for handcuffs to mount>Water will be in a camelbak which is why back of PC is open>I may have shit gear, but I've got lvl 4 ceramics with lvl3A soft armor behind them
>>56911189Bad>get rid of backpouch and replace with bag you can dump>akLol. Lmao even>empty back Attach back pouch for camelbak>dump pouch on beltAttach to cumberbund >drop legDon't. Just toss the handgun in the trash or if you must, attach to your belt
>>56911189Is that buttpack attached correctly or is this just a terrible padded belt? I'd get rid of that entirely either way. Get a belt holster and move that giant pouch from your cummerbund so it doesn't interfere with your draw. Put it on the other side if you must have it. You need water somehow, either a small assault pack with a bladder or a standalone hydration carrier. >>56911212>Attach back pouch for camelbakThe molle only goes up halfway I don't think he can. I hate whoever designed that plate carrier. Plenty of velcro for morale patches though!!!
>>56911251He can. Zip tie the top of the molle camelback pouch to the moto handle.
What's the consensus on these poor things? https://www.deltateamtactical.com/ncstar-discreet-plate-carrier-up-to-x-armor-plate-pocket-med-xl-black-28373.html
>>56911121Brother I know I tease you but you need to understand burger milsurp is milsurp like any other and is absolutely not worth it unless if you get it locally for very cheap or capture it from your enemies in combat, get a second hand civilian fleece or some european surplus if you must, this shit is not worth your money dont be a slave of Instagram memes
>>56911121Would that even blend in where you live?
>>56911212Already said the back was gonna be for a camalpak. Many of y'all spazos said to move the dump pouch to belt. What do you suggest for a pistol holster?>Fuck you, AK is godly.>>56911251Yes an no. I didn't realize it was off center when I tossed it on this time (fucking with belt, didn't tighten it) but it's secured to the belt properly. Doesn't get in my way and holds lots of medical shit, but I'm keeping the tourniquet in a easier access bag on the side (and also general storage). Luckily it doesn't get in way of my draw. It's a shellback PC.
>>56907683What about Hesco 4601s?
>>56909545Brother, no axe or maul is going to survive being struck in that area repeatedly. I hate to be the "it's just physics" guy but..
How many rounds of 22lr do you think it would take to make the various levels of plates (both soft and hard, giggity) useless/penetrate?
>>56911302thanks for not being a faggot for once, and for the advice, anyway I'm aware of what you say, in fact almost everything I bought I got for very cheap, so much so that some times I bought more and sold it for a profit and paid back what I kept.the reason I buy us surp is bc it's almost all there is, and it's good, but I wont be paying the airsoft larger tax and pay more to look like le epic muhreensz, it's just that I like American gear bc it's well made, I'm an autist for scrounging good deals so I usually get them at great prices, I like us camo patterns, and most EU sure looks like ass, but as you can see here>>56910681>>56910773 i dont mind buying non us stuff, and all the us surp I bought was not any more expensive than EU stuff almost every time
>>56911476dont mind the link to the molle pack it was an error I only meant the undies
>>56911476other stuff I got for cheap is m81 bdus for 20 euros (for jacket and pants, 40 total)20 euros for British dorm combat shirt155 for ecwcs lvl7 jacket (not cheap, just a normal price while most I found were overpriced at 200+ and shipping)molle pouches for 2euros each goretex m81 jacket for 40strandhogg for 180all of these include shipping, thats usuall 8/10 euros unless its from the Uk then its slot bc of import fees
>>56911422Steel inserts: thousands of rounds shot from a .22 minigunCeramic: a couple dozen maybe a hundred before the plates disintegrate enough to let one through.
>>56911558What about soft armor?
>>56911367I don't mean it's not centered I mean the way it's sagging. I guess your belt is just floppy.>holds lots of medical shitCan you access it? That's a fuckload of first aid. You don't need a whole medic bag if you're not a medic. >Luckily it doesn't get in way of my drawYeah because you are using a drop leg holster. With a proper holster that will probably become a problem. What do you even have in there besides the TQ? Also your TQ's should be more easily reachable and you need to be able to get to them with both hands.
>>56911422If you can get that many shots off on them then why not aim somewhere other than their vest?
>>56911566I've probably got more medical training than your average person. I've got trauma pads, shears, various bandages, clotting agent, gauze. Basically anything one would need to treat minor injuries to severe wounds. Basically I can treat anything that's not going to require major surgery.
>>56911598You're not going to be treating much with it on your back like that. And don't tell me you're just going to feel around back there and grab the right stuff. Typically you want a blowout kit on your person either in a belt/fannypack/dangler, a smaller booboo kit for minor things somewhere else, and anything beyond that goes in a pack.
Going on a three day solo camping trip. What's some ideas for /k/ shit while out?
>>56909525>Condor knife and toolYes. My error for not disambiguating, CK&T.

Just don't bounce off the neck.>why is the head so irreparable? The eternal complant with Fiskars.>looks like you've never used yoursCorrect for that photo, note filename.
>>56910075If like the Bates, excessively heavy.>>56910090>get a pair of batesMy Bates sucked then came apart.

How snug should a plate carrier fit? Are you supposed to be able to fit a fist under it?
>>56911767Fingers, not fist.
>>56911694Practice primitive traps and make a sling. You have a way to replenish your water, right?
>>56911767This is basically correct: >>56911773It should be tight, not floppy at all, but not so tight that it constricts your breathing.
>>56911367>those patchesAye, reckon it ain't wise to argue with the mentally retarded.>>56911702Lites? Yeah they suck. Only good for boots and utes PT events.
Anyone want a defense mechanisms inner and outer mech belt?It's size 34 and woodland. Brand new.Its like an inch too big for me$100 email@example.com
>>56911719/out/ is /k/ and /an/‘s daughter you sick freak
>>56912142So it's a LAB belt at SMU prices?
>>56912091>Lites?No. Not Lite.
>>56912497The mech has a Tegris base
>>56907463Is that holster PDX carpet pattern? Where would I get that?
>>56911376>What about Hesco 4601s?What about them, they are heavier than the Colossus at the same thickness, and stop nothing more than standard 30-06 AP, for the same price. They are fine for what they are, but in the greater context of "what could this ~600 dollars buy me platewise" its not a good buy anymore. It falls into a zone where it is not the lightest, strongest or wierdest (flexible).

>>56916485Kruschiki maybe, I know he tells smocks in it, but I don't know the quality
>>56907672I actually bought the K19 and IMMEDIATELY sent it back for a refund. Their one size fits all shit is utter BS and unless your on roids, you lose pretty much any space on the sides. That and enjoy trying to shoulder a rifle while hitting the plastic QD buckles. Went Crye JPC 2.0 and haven't looked back.

>>56916099what's that on he end of your flashlight
>>56916733Rap and hip hop are very popular.
>Condor Modular Operator Plate Carrier Vest - MOPC Vest$72, yes, no?
>>56916755I haven't had much experience with many others but my main selling point was to shoulder the rifle without hindrance so the JPC fit that category perfectly. The plastic/rubber texture allows you to shoulder the rifle without bulky pads in the way AND it acts as a grip on the stock. Win/win, atleast for me.
>>56916836See>>56907672LBX stuff is cheap
>>56916490Pretty dumb unless you got a screaming deal
>>56916755JPC 1.0 is better for most but they're tougher to find now, so 2.0 is fine.
>>56910075Bought these and have been my winter boot this season, ive been in 8in of snow at 0 degrees with only business man socks on and my feet barely got cold https://www.danner.com/tachyon-8-black-gtx.html
Can we talk rucks?I’ve been conditioned into believing that I always want my ruck under 40# but that’s just not possible with water and ammo.What’s the absolute minimum and absolute maximum in terms of what to pack?
>>56917542>under 40#For how long? In what season? Including what auxiliary gear?
>>56917611All-season just in case I have to split from my vehicle. Relatively indefinitely is the idea.Cold weather, wet weather gear, socks, undies, a pair of pants, sleep system, then sustainment stuff like fire, batteries, 550 cord, e-tool, and axe is getting replaced with a foldy saw.Ammo and water weight not included.I’ve done heavy weight over long distances with kit, it’s nothing short of miserable, but hopefully I’ll never need to bail from my car
>>56907808It's pretty comfy and reasonably well made. My pc was 180 idk what they cost now. Craving an AVS but saving money is priority rn. Prob gonna get a set of dcus once platatac releases them around feb-mar
>>56917473They don’t have removable front flaps or the Crye panel suite interoperability but they come with a three mag front shingle and used to be cheaper - that was the draw.There are some quality of life improvements the 2.0 made (stretch plate bags, back panel suite compatibility) but there’s are also some redundant features that don’t get used much - even in real life - (shoulder bean doffing system)I like my 1.0’s and my APC
>>56917542>LVBACK, faggot beast! Back to the depths from which you came!
>>56917731I have extra bits if you want to start piece-mealing
>>56917722>Cold weather, wet weather gear, socks, undies, a pair of pants, sleep system, then sustainment stuff like fire, batteries, 550 cord, e-tool, and axeYou're not making that light weight.
>>56917868I’m trying to keep as bare minimum as I can while still keeping everything I would need for long term survivability
>>56917722you need to get rid of redundancies. the axe and e-tool is one you already identified. cold weather gear and wet weather gear should be able to layer with each other. spare underwear usually goes uneeded and spare socks can be kept to a minimum with wool ones. spare pants can be a part of cold/wet gear. sleep system can be very light if you don't care about hiding and use ultralight backpacking gear. food/water can just be a jar of peanut butter, electrolyte packets, and a sawyer filter to sustain water source. fire kit should be reliable and not for comfy camping with the in-laws. a bic disposable kept close to base layers or skin will function in all conditions barring extreme cold the mini blowtorches will also be hotter and work in the wind. tinder can be the cheap firestarters found in every outdoors section. is the ammo for people or animals? people, a spare mag. animals, you need a way to process meat and there was no knife listed in the kit.if you don't do anything retarded, this will buy you at least a weeks time
>>56917787I’ll probably go with the SPC if I find a good quick detach cummybund
>>56916605> on roidsHow about fucking fat? The K19 was literally designed for fats. Simple as. Also lol at their fake reviews.
>>56916755jpc2.0 is the best "do it all" carrier, AVS/SPC for heavy loads.
>>56919003why not the spc?
>>56907655wgat nakes the esstacs mid?ive always really liked them
>>56919186the length of them you tard
>>56910075Can't speak for those specifically, but for everyday use I can't get more than a year out of a pair. I've had 2 pairs of Pronghorns and a pair of Workmans that are all completely shot, holes in the bottom after about 13-15 months
I'll post now that I bought one, anyone looking for a pattern 83 battlejacket, varusteleka has them for $150. Still overpriced, but cheaper than anywhere else I could find
If you want good boots look at what hunters wear and don't get military style boots
>>56918946>Also lol at their fake reviews.They sent me an email to review their product with a bunch of incentives to favor them. I don't give reviews or stars but if I had it would have been 0-5 for me, personally.They did send my money back within a few days so atleast that was nice.>>56917310>JPC 1.0 is better for most but they're tougher to find now, so 2.0 is fine.See, I like the 2.0 better. But I think it's truly personal preference, honestly. I liked I could buy their pack and it works and mix and match. Plus it just werks lol. There are a lot of people who enjoy the 1.0 better, again, I think it boils down to what you want and/or need.

>>56922047As a guy who went from an ACH to an opscore bump. Just buy the expensive bicycle helmet.

>>56917945You should really think about what your mission here is. You said this is incase you got seperated from your vehicle. You shurely werent driving around aimlessly were you? Where were you going? How long do you need to go there? Can you store additional gear at your destination? or somewhere near by? You will not walk 100miles with gear to sustain you indefinately and if you did it would ruin your pace, at some point you hit deminishing returns with more gear. Leave additional gear like food at the destination, embrace the suck for 3 days walking there, by not taking 12000kcal but only 5000. If your endgoal is just go innawoods and bushwack for 2 years you should really rethink your life choices.
>>56922897DONT ask /gq/ it’s a circle jerkDrifire would be a good tactical shirt and pants because of how comfy and flame retardant they are
>>56916549just buy a belt pad like this and put it over your outer garment https://defensemechanisms.com/mech-belt-pad/

>>56922897That's more of a milsurp/airsoft/historical question. We don't really care about "iconic". Unironically would check airsoft forums if you want specific 'loadouts', or something like IMFDB reference screencaps. Most of the old tech was used only because current tech didn't exist.
Anyone know what gloves these are on the CSGO IDF model? the worldmodel has different gloves than the viewmodel and I can't identify this one-finger variation compared to the all-fingers version. What glove is this one bare finger glove? Is it custom, an oversight?

>>56907503I have Lowas and they were comfy from day one. Maybe you have bad feet and need something in there to get your feet under your legs.
>>56909545To anyone still reading this thread, how do you break a maul? Jesus. Ok here is what to do, get any old truck tire with a 16 inch center. Put it where you can walk around it at a arm and maul length 360 degrees. Put wood upright in middle, end grain up. Split aiming withing 2 inches of the edge. Rotate around the tire. Do not reach over split wood to what's behind it - rotate! You will split wood fast. You will not break handles. As wood is split, remove and replace so tire is 60 to 80% full. t. Eagle Scout, woodworker, tool junkie. I split with a 50 year old Stanley maul w/ the original hickory handle that was my dads. About a chord and a half a year. It helps to put a thin slab or plywood at the bottom
>>56907503Double up socks. Was standard practice in the military year round. Thin material like spandex or pantyhose on the inside and wool on the outside. This is the best way to fight blisters. I have really sweaty feet and it actually makes my feet feel LESS sweaty in the summer believe it or not.
Heavy shit at the bottom or top of your ruck?
>>56927255~middlin. Close to your back as possible. Not at the very bottom, and it’s ok to have some quick access shit ontop of it if you need
>>56927167Stupid old way of doing it. Keeping your feet moisturized when recovering and using moleskin on your hotspots, and swapping socks out often is a much better strat
Forgive me if it's 5.11, but their entire AMP line was on sale. Are they shutting AMP down? Because I sure as shit can't find in that color pic related.
>>56907672Anyone have the helmet one?
>>56925872It's a videogame dude. But since by the age of the game, the real-life equivalent would be padded leather with the fingertips cut off. So like biker gloves. Modern equivalent would be Mechanix Impact with chopped fingers
>>56927983That paint is fucking comical. Excellent joke fatty
>>56928844good thing it works and its not for looks.
What are these even for? Coleman's has had them for like over a year, if not several. The loops are big enough for an ALICE belt, I think https://colemans.com/7-french-ammo-pouches.
>>56928851As if you take it outside lol. Gonna be hard to sell it when it looks like complete dogshit
>>56928935Why would I sell my 416?
>>56928945Because you're a fat retard? Same reason you do everything you do
>>56928953I havent sold a single gun tho you retard why would I start selling any? Maybe post gear instead of being a coping poorfag no gear and no guns.
Is it true that AWS is the OEM for Ronin belts and that jungle monkey just gave it a Japanese name to market to weebs?

>>56927309Doesn't sound very practical to be undressing all the time.
>>56929663>All the time Not what I said
>>56922897A lot has changed between 1990 - current year. 1990 would be like Ranger Body Armor, very old-fashioned plates, PASGT helmets, ALICE gear, etc. 2000-2008 would be like the UK's Osprey system and the US Interceptor armor system. SAPI plates, ESAPI plates, or spook plates. ACH helmets and bump helmets. Current day would be:>>56907672>>56907683And FAST RF1 helmets.

>>56929037Jesus Christ that foot is disgusting!
>>56928882>What are these even for? Coleman's has had them for like over a year,I read the comments in less than 12 seconds and you've had a year to figure it out and can't? You should feel shame.
>>56930975>militechliteral chinkshit. No.
>>56928979Basically. Ol whistle foot took a basic bitch digger special design, paid to have them produced at scale, and sell them for twice what they go for
>>56916490not dumb at all, it's a very good two piece belt. people meme about "aws is the ronin oem" and stuff but you couldn't always buy the same belt from elseware. ronin was one of the first to market a velcro two piece molle belt to civilians. they were outrageously popular before aws, blue alpha gear, and now literally everybody else started selling a molle two piece belt.the people that say ronin is shit are newfags that only got into gear within the last few years.
>>56932180This is the only correct answer and it makes noguns and nogears seethe because they instantaneously out themselves as post-GWOT nocombat neverserved larpers who were in diapers when Tu started Ronin.
I live on small island nation that will be invaded by the PLA during ww3what are some must-haves for jungle warfare in my go bag? (besides the obvious like antibiotics, extra socks/underwear, multiple water filters)
>>56932496I’m assuming it’s a nogunz country, so your best bet would be a plane ticket before that occurs.
>>56932543US territory, not no-guns. the island next to me has class 3 and mine might soon (nfa doesn't technically apply to territory) or something like that. I'm not a lawyer
>>56932180>>56932446This is hilariously incorrect. Tu Lam is a faggot who couldn’t be happy with his admittedly impressive position and track record - who had to continuously exaggerate, lie and steal - not just designs from a VERY common rigger-mod to the LAB belt which has been around forever, the proctor belts, and competitive shooters belts before that - but also stealing issued equipment from conventional uplifts. He’s one of the very few to be banned from JBLM range complex for literally shootings himself in the foot and everything his little swamp-Asian ass does to try and pass himself off as Jomon, is incredibly cringeThe idea that he “was the first to market a two piece belt to civilians” is remarkably false

>>56933393Why bother when they’re all wearing Eagle belts and have been for the past ~however many~ years?>no tabApparently that wasn’t even good enough for ol Tu. He had to pretend to be from “the Unit” despite...you know...not
>>56930941That protec bump is just chinkshit you can get any amazon special and it will probably be the same thing. The PT bravo is the one they make in house that is .gov approved.
>>56932180>people meme about "aws is the ronin oem"It's true though. That doesn't mean the belt sucks, AWS makes fucking great stuff.
>>56933080Or just send it to the plotter. I have a whole set.
>>56933607He's larping he would know AWS if he was real.
>>56933505Just be yourself and buy a pusher

Anyone know if Arc'teryx has a new assault pack without the drawstring? Seen a cool guy in Africa one with what looked like it just had no logo (or at least very subdued) and no drawstring but everything else was the exact same thing. Color wasn't the normal tan/black/multicam/gray but more olive. Really jelly and want one.
Any opinion about swedish Stridsväst 12? I could buy the complete set for $150

>>56933080Does anyone know how to get a map in 1:25000 scale? I'd like to be able to select an area and have the map be set to that scale. I could then print out however many sheets as I needed to build the whole map. This site seems to only have a way for me to download pre existing 1:24000 maps at the closest in the areas I'm looking.
>>56935185got it, thanks for the reply
>>56933953Your file. I save all my map files in pdf. The plotter allows full page printout and on high quality stock, assuming. Protip, you can hike your ass off a 7.5' series pdq and a higher scale area map is indicated.

>>56909490It wasn’t very difficult to ruin. It was good because it was an obscure free speech message board for weapons. Key word here is obscure.Every faggot in the world has heard of 4chan now, and you can’t even talk about the objective superiority of the Rhodesian Light Infantry and their contributions to tactics and gear without triggering actual trannies, opinionated nogun idiots, and nigger retards./k/ is completely over by now and it can’t actually be resurrected.

>>56935041The batch of vests and pouches that ended up on the civilian market got rejected from the army because the stitching glows on night vision. Something to consider.
