Unless I've come down with a case of the 'tard, I can't for the life of me find a 'Post pics of your plate carrier setup' thread...? I searched with all my team powers but couldn't find one?

If there is none, I will post mine up and start one- or does anyone know where it went? I coulda sworn I've seen one?

ETA: Not talking about chest rigs, or 'gear' in general. I'm talking about strictly plate carriers.

ETA2: One other person can't find one either; so that must mean this is none! THIS IS NOW A PLATE CARRIER THREAD!

––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––­–––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––­–––––––––––––––––––

Please BE SURE to post specs if you join in! Including Plates inside!

With chest rig attached:



Chest rig detached:



Velocity Systems LWPC in MC with two triple-curve plates by RMR tactical inside.

Chest rig is clipped on using the Velocity Systems 'Swift Clip' Attachment system. Chest rig is a TT mini-mav with a triple mag shingle, and two modded Eagle FB pistol mag pouches on each side (modded to fit double stack glock mags). Pouch in front is a MSM Admin pouch.

I LOVE this PC because I can not only have a chest rig attached, but also use it under clothing as a low-pro carrier.

We need one of these...I like the general gear threads but I am constantly searching through pages and pages without seeing a good plate carrier set up.  Lets start one.

'Pants -

Since you've been using it since 07, I'm sure its not bad for you but I was wondering how much everything stood out when you loaded mags into the 'satch and then had an IFAK on front.  Is it noticeble bulk?  Do you not use the end pouches?  Does it make maneuvering difficult?  

I've been running one for the last year, but just put small stuff up front.  I might have to try the IFAK on front though.

To the people with those hsgi tacos:

Would the shock cord last? I just keep thinking the elastic would give out when I don't want it to. The kydex and cordura seem durable though.
Thanks.

its tough shock cord, and i dont ever see it wearing out.

on the off chance that it does break, id bet it would break due to getting snagged somehow and getting cut.

if it does, thats why theres extra on the pouches. you can tie it back together and still use the pouches until your mission is over or you get back home.

I got a Waholster when they were still available, it can be placed in the pockets at any angle and never had any issues with retainability. I really didn't need more than six mags on me, and the pistol was mostly just for show when dealing with the village and town leaders.


Yeah, I actually used one as a secondary med pouch, with some gauze and an Israeli bandage.

Bump.  Dont let this fall to far.  Great pictures so far.  Although, if some of you could post the specs of your kit that would be great for people that are looking to upgrade or build an entirely new carrier.

Do you have a pic wearing your kit?

Shawn, what are the specs on your setup there? look like it fits well.  Does the PC get in the way of your AR mags on your belt?

PLACEHOLDER!  New kit should be here tomorrow.  Now if my SKD order would hurry up and get here I could take some pics.

Paraclete SOHPC, AMI T3S plates.



ATS CLAP, 'biner, Tactical Tailor 3Mag Shingle.


From the TT 3Mag Single, ATS 2 Mag Rifle pouch, TT shingle holding CAT (Can be used for additional mag if needed.), USGI pistol pouch, BFG TKN with B-7 on top, TT Zippered Utility Pouch.

Very comfortable, the only other PC I'd care to try is the PIG. This one does everything I need it to comfortably.

Got my Mayflower Gen IV QD Chest Rig. On google I found a bunch of CCT operators who use this chest rig overseas. I have no idea what a CCT operator does but it looks like it something with communications.

This chest rig is really nice, and has two pockets for comms, which I guess ties into the CCT thing.

Anywho, here's three photos in the three stages I can use the PC and the CR...

Just the PC:

chwi548,

Any chance of some more pics showing how you mounted the TQ to your stock?   Right now I am running some shock cord with a couple cord locks but it isn't ideal.

Sorry Mike. I forgot about this thread

Yeah it fits really well.  it doesnt get in the way of my belt loads. it  fits tight against my body and the FastMags stick out just enough to clear it  without flopping around etc.   I dont have any side plates in it so that may make a difference, all I have in it is front adn back ESAPIs and soft backers.

The plate carrier had side plate pouches added to the cummerbund by the good folks at TT. Soft panel carrier was also a custom job from TT.

I dont run any additional kit. One mag in the M4, one tourniquet in left pants pocket and one Israeli in the right pants pocket. I also removed the safety from my primary.
























Just kidding

What's with the labeling on peoples mags?

The short answer is that it helps keep track of your good mags.  Number them, when you ID a number that consistently gives you problems, eliminate it.  Also keeps them from walking away, but that's incidental.
