I wouldnt worry too much about that You'll likely change stuff out for awhile. Don't get in the mindset of needing 'x' number of bullets up front. Also, understand your escape plans.

Example-if using a vehicle to get away from assholes and you plan on wearing your carrier while you drive understand you'll probably reach for your pistol before your rifle should you have to fight somebody off. Drawing a pistol mag from a belt under your carrier is a bitch so having a mag on your chest somewhere may be smart. Build into your whole plan, not just for getting fast range splits.

That's what an assault pack is for.  If I'm purposefully inserting myself into a situation like that then I'm bringing a bag/backpack with extra ammo, batteries, water, a little food, binos, etc

My Crye CPC the most comfortable carrier I’ve worn in my career, I keep it fairly slick now taco’s, Crye general purpose pouch, Ferro x FOG roll1 in the back spare tourniquet rubber banded on left side and a multitool in a eagle pistol mag pouch.

finally got all the pieces (for now anyways)
K19 agilite
spiritus MK5 with elastic mag insert
spiritus dangler pouch

on the left side cummerbund i have trauma shears, HSGI taco/ ar mag, and the tube holds 3 CR123 batteries
this is my 4th carrier i was issued the IOTV and IBA and personally own an SKD PIG. The K19 is amazing extremely comfortable.
the dangler holds my IFAk supplies and i have since mounted the TQ to the bottom of it so i can access it with either hand easier.
plates are BAE eclipse LVL 4 large, very happy with this setup and 1000% improvement over the SKD setup I was using.
the top zippered pouch on the K19 holds a few small band aids marker, lighter ect.
the front pocket on the dangler i have 4 AA in a carrier and 4 CR123 in a carrier (SF, Peq, and NV are thirsty bitches)
entire setup weighs 23 lbs but does not feel like it due to the awesome k19 padding.

Good looking set up and the K19 is among the best PCs out there, IMO.

Also IMO, you're going to find that 23lbs weighs a lot more after an hour of walking, getting in and out of a vehicle, climbing steps, and standing around (to say nothing of actually fighting).

Man, I'm pretty spent with my 12lbs carrier after 8 miles. It's been a long time since I've run with heavier gear. I guess I'm getting old.

I've got a picture on my moto wall of me in boots and utes on a 10mile road race with a 30lbs ruck.

More power to ya, bud.

I'm 52 and in reasonably decent shape for my age and I've been constantly whittling my gear down to the point that I'm at 15lbs (K19 with Hesco 3810s and a double mag pouch), and it still lets me know it's there after an hour or two of doing things.

its a very versatile design that works with some less overt carriers like my velocity LEPC

ETA it has hook velcro at the top for PCs that dont have full molle. like my LEPC. molle at the bottom and velcro at the top to keep it from flopping. also can use full molle if you have it.

To begin don't deny your first point.

Second it really does attach perfect to their carrier.

been partially following this along a while, but not sure if it's worth a new thread or not. I want new plates. I work at a school and we had an almost active shooter and it got me thinking that maybe it is worth spending more than a couple hundred bucks on plates. I'm curious for the options in level III or better (probably), multicurve, light plates. I have a slickster that I like and would use, but something that can live in the truck or my work backpack that's nicer than the RMA stuff I have now.

I would want protection against most 5.56, but less worried about the exotic stuff.

thoughts?

It also has a Zero9 radio holster under the left cummerbund, a rothco pistol mag holder, condor radio pouch, a Taco TQ pouch, a wing for an additional TQ. The mini dangler is for med. I have a WTF idea molle back panel and the shoulder straps.

If I am going to use the rifle, I pull the placard off and change it. I have 4 rifle mags in my backpack, along with helmet, muffs, canteen, dump pouch, and other stuff. I'll try to get a pic while I am at work and kitted out.

Working gear. Felt temps out here today are 95 degrees with a light breeze. It's actually not that bad, but the real summer temps are still about a month away.

There's a quick release cummerbund in my future. In and out of this thing and you will definitely see the need for one. But the biggest thing is that your plates are set high enough so they can clamshell on your chest and back. That alone makes the weight of the carrier disappear.

We were all noobs once. Learn and apply what you can and pay it forward.

My humble entry. I have several PCs, one for each family member. This is for range/LARP/home use. In theory could be used for .mil, but that's not really my job.

JPC 1.0, unk placard.  T3 dual mag pouch and USMC Surplus pistol pag on my left.  Haven't decided on IFAK set up yet, probably something minimal once I find a pouch I like.  I have a FILBE assualt pack, as well as an BTAP- thinking of getting some quick attach buckles (like a few pages back) for the BTAP.

I have a battle belt as well that has more pistol and rifle mags, that's my "run n gun" set up.

For those interested, Agilite recently released their Version 3 of the K19.  It can now be configured to either have the Quick Release buckles on the shoulder areas, or not.

I'm pretty sure that makes this already capable and comfortable PC now one of the most flexible on the market.

Looks like a really nice carrier system. I watched a few videos on it. My issue here is heat. Carriers are great in cooler weather. I can tell you first hand that they suck when it's hot and humid. The slickster does ok in the heat, but the cummerbund has to go. I have a skeletal molle on order. Issue is that it's made to order and will be a while before I get it.

I am pretty sure that the Jpc can be had with one for aggregately cheaper than the slickster. Just a heads up for anyone who might be wearing one outside in the summer for longer than five minutes or so.

It's made in Israel, for Israeli use.  Tends to get hot there.

I've got the 2.0 version and it's my favorite PC for comfort, and I'm in Central Florida.  It's not like wearing a cooling vest, to be sure, but it breathes as well as any I've used.

Actually Israel gets into the 80s and 90s and has long summers.  Anyone who thinks the K19 by Agilite isn't designed to do well in hot, dry, and dirty conditions is fooling themselves.

Updated:
Crye 1.0 medium; Front plate is III/IV ICW from BulletProof Me (with IIIa backer), and the rear is IV from LAPG the ones that were popular about 1-2 years ago.
ebay finds: AR single mag with kydex insert for 'emergency' reload, ditto for pistol on my weak side.  2 pocket AR mag on left along with an (maybe Eagle?) small pouch as IFAK on strong side.  I tried to throw a canteen pouch on weak side at the back of the side flap, but couldn't actually access it.
Backpack is the Eagle BTAP.  Camo is AOR2.  has 4 quick-release clips to don/doff.  
Only other change is I'm consider tubes, now that I have the mag pouches on the sides.

Uses?  LARP. Range day.  In  theory, with these colors, I could use it if deployed.

The key word there is dry. Here, in Florida, it's wet. The humidity is what drives up the wet bulb temp, and then, ventilation is probably best. I am not dissing the carrier at all, because it looks great. But minimalist, skeletal cummerbund, and mesh backing are all important.

And this cummerbund looks fairly minimalist and skeletal to me, and that sure looks like mesh backing on the plate bags and shoulders.  But I could be wrong, I just own one and only use it in Florida.

Yeah, it's sweet. It would still end up wearing most of the pouches I already have for the slickster, and it would cost 300 dollars. Not sure what I'll do if and when I upgrade, but for now, the slickster is serving me pretty well. It's on my short list if I do decide to upgrade, as is the MEPC.
