Is the blackhawk RACK system worth the money? They have them at SPG for 199 and I was thinking about buying one, right now I have a knock off USGI vest and was thinking of going over to a chest rig. I was also looking at the Eagle universal chest rig, wich was considerably less expensive, around $70. Would you guys consider either of these set ups quality gear or are they just cool looking crap. Honest opinions please.

They are good quality and made of a heavier nylon material than the issue RACK made by SDS. I like the ability to tailor to particular situation or needs that the RACK would offer. Check out the MAV from Tactical Tailor. It's only $47 for the one piece vest body, good quality, offers the same modularity as the RACK, and you can get exactly the pouches you want on it.

Just so you know, it doesn't 'look' to me like this is the STRIKE version because it looks like it is not a plate carrier. Just in case you are looking for a plate carrier version. If you are looking for the strike version, some of the dealers on AR15.com have some pretty good discounts.

No, it is not STRIKE, it is a Blackhawk produced RACK as formerly issued to the Ranger Regt and some others. I had one a few years ago. They are well made and sturdy, but do not have tha capability to carry a ballistic plate.
