Ok so where is yours?

I can't remember all the prices but have rough estimates. It's still not 100% complete.


Ice molle belt. $20
Eagle duty belt. $40
6004. used $70
BFG traumi kit now with supplies. $100
TT magna pouch. $30
Eagle 2x4 fb. $60
Can't remember how much my socks cost

I cut the pistol pouches off the 2x4 because it was too bulky for my needs. If I ever learn how to sew I will repair the pistol pouches so they can be used seperately.

I have a crappy blackhawk setup and want to ditch it for one like you guys listed. Problem is I have no idea where to start. Hence the might War Belt picture thread

Just as others,that visit this forum I bought the surplus ICE belt from Wardens Supply (i bought it when it was only $20.00), I have never used a MOLLE belt ,just a regular duty belt.
I wanted to try the MOLLE belt concept,So I put together this rig.using the ICE M4 quickdraw duoble pouch a TT vertical utility pouch two HSGI pistol mag pouches "modified" by me and a safariland holster canibal...I mean modified . After running some simple drills like running ,climbing a fence ,going prone ,reloads and having my mother in law call my wife and asking her If I was "OK"( I was doing all this around my house ) I decided that I definitely liked the concept sooo. I ordered another ICE belt in MC from Blackstone Tactical and a TT horizontal accessory pouch for a small IFAK. I will update this post with pics once I get it.


This is the current configuration:


IMO If you are thinking about getting one ,go ahead and get one, as long as you understand the purpose of the first line belt and keep it as light as possible you will be very happy with it.

ATS war belt with ATS inner belt size Large ($60)
2x Eagle FB Glock pouches ($25 ea)
2x Eagle FB M4 pouches ($25 ea)
Spec Ops Flashlight pouch ($5)
Recce Gear Dumper ($40)
ATS Small Med ($50; add $40 for contents)
Safariland 6280 (6004 leg set up inbound; bought used for $65 total)
Maxpedition 4x6 ($18)

I wear size 32-33 jeans. I initially went with a medium, but that meant the channels started at approx 2 and 10 o'clock. I went with a size larger so I could run the pistol mag pouches and the Maxped pouch near the front. The ends of warbelt almost touch. I've gone prone with this rig and it's fine.

If i were to do it again, i'd swap out the 4x6x1.5" for a 3x5x1. The 4x6 stands off the body more than i'd like, but it's solved by not loading it full.

allows for wearing Camelbaks and makes sitting in vehicles easier.

Stirred,

Is it easier to grab the mag out of the reversed pouch like that?

Ive never experimented...

It is not absolutely easier. I am sure that someone versed in biomechanics could strongly argue that pulling up from a pouch is faster/easier, but I run my FAST-Mag that way for several reasons:

1) When operating anyway other than Hollywood or "slick" (i.e., with a just a belt and nothing else), I have found that a mag sticking up from the belt interferes with either my chest rig or my OTV, or both.

2) Even if the vertical mag isn't interfering with my gear, it's digging into my ribs when I move.

3) With the FAST-Mag inverted, the top (err, bottom) of the mag carrier is flush with the top edge of my War Belt, eliminating all clearance issues.

4) With the FAST-Mag located on my belt where it is, it is only noticeable if I pay attention to it. It slightly rubs my upper leg when I stride, but that's it.

5) While the draw is slower, the mag is properly oriented for direct insertion in to the M4, with no twisting or turning.

Basically, I kept playing with my gear at the range until I found what worked for me. YMMV. I originally had the FAST-Mag a few channels back on the War Belt, where it was directly lateral from my hip and could not even rub my leg when I strode. However, IOT get my pistol mags to clear my BFG TKN! pouch on my 2nd Line, I had to switch the FAST to the more foreward position and the mags a little further back (which puts them in a CCW/IDPA-like location, which is cool with me, since they are my secondary reloads; my main pistol reloads are on my chest).

ETA: If you'll notice, I don't have any of the extended floorplate mags on my 1st Line either. I am very serious about keeping the top profile of the War Belt at sleek as possible, to reduce any possible interference with my kit. I carry the Mec-Gar 20-rd AFC mags in the gun and on the chest.

I believe that these are XL War Belts, and as you can see, it puts the end of the War Belt right up under the buckles for me. I wear L/R ACU pants and was wearing 38" jeans and slacks, but I have been trimming down lately. Once my HHG arrives, I'll have to verify that my XL War Belt still fits (though I am pretty sure that it will still ride on top of my hips properly as it did before).

I hate to hijack the thread, but i'm curious how these belts are working out while wearing a ruck or other pack with a waist belt.

You got it. You know if anyone else knew my gear that well I'd be a little creeped out. LOL
