Finally got my rig updated to almost where I want it. Pics:
What: EbayBanned RRV with MAP-style pack, 2x SDS mag shingles in woodland, 3x Condor 40mm pouches, 1x radio pouch (on side of MAP), 1x admin pouch (for documents, knife, lighter, etc), Condor dropleg dump pouch, random generic pistol belt.
Where: ASF classifieds, ASR classifieds, and AirsoftAtlanta.
When: Over the last few months.
Why?: Something lightweight but still with plenty of room, my last rig was a molle belt and I found it to be just too crowded for everything I wanted to put on it, so I went with an RRV.
How much: Probably $300 for the gear including my radio radio and eye pro, just picked it up a little at a time. ESS turbofans are on the way, in the mean time i'm using a marui pro-mask. Recon wrap and shemagh to cover my mouth. I got the first aid kit from a school bus that was being phased out (Mom is a school bus driver, and I was helping remove stuff it wouldn't need anymore for whoever bought it.)
If you think the bottom 40mm pouches are awkward, your kinda right. But as long as I pull the top 2 first there isn't a problem drawing the bottom 2, and why wouldn't I pull the top 2 first?
Thinking of moving the 40mm pouch on the mag pouch onto the side of the dump pouch, so they are within quick reach, and they stick out a bit too far for my liking where they are currently. The SDS mag shingles were like $7 each so I HAD to snatch them up, they are becoming fairly scarce on Ebay. I'd love to trade them for some Coyote tan ones or even DCU but i'm in no hurry to do so.
Still need: A hydro bladder (Going with a generic walmart one until I can get a Camelbak Omega 100oz)
Some sort of GP pouch (for the BIG open space on the right side, if you can't tell i'm a righty when it comes to my rifle, lol) I'm taking suggestions, it needs to be able to hold smoke grenades, regular grenades, snacks, extra batteries, maybe some tools?
WE Desert Warrior 4.3 (new one they just released, love it!) and Serpa dropleg platform (for my right leg, or maybe on the vest if it doesn't get in the way too much, thoughts?)
Maybe a Motorola talkabout with a swimmer-style headset. I currently run a Midland with a remote mic and an surveillance-style earpiece, and I might stick with it since the sound quality is very good and I haven't heard good things bout the swimmer.
A boonie, woodland
For my CQB rig with my MP5K I think i'm going to use a BULLE MLE (gotta import it, ugh) http://www.flecktarn.co.uk/ustmb4nx.html
. It's basically a clone of a TT 2 piece MAV with an X-Harness so I may splurge and get that if importing proves to be too much of a hassle.
