Shit I need a pouch for that. HSGI makes a taco pouch just for that!

Looks like it would hit your back and get in the way when you tried to sit down. Good for killing zombies or gathering kindle though.

I think you need suspenders to hold all of that up Batman.

Personally I'd go tomahawk OR fixed blade, not both. But this is Arfcom, after all.

There really is no good way to carry a tomahawk on your person, it seems.

Replace the Beretta and you'll be fine.

I love tomahawks.
Link Posted: 12/7/2013 3:43:02 PM EST
If you have a PC you could transfer some of the mags onto there.
Link Posted: 12/7/2013 3:55:38 PM EST
Looks like a metric fuck-ton of weight without suspenders. Is that setup comfortable to wear?

Surprisingly comfortable. I don't even notice the tomahawk tell I sit down. But again I was just throwing stuff together because I was bored today.
Link Posted: 12/7/2013 4:28:38 PM EST
I bet rolling around with that belt on would hurt, a lot.

Beer out of a straw is just nasty. Camelback is for jack'n'cokes. Insulated tactical backpack cooler is for beer.

Load all the mags and go run a couple of miles in it. That will answer your question if it is to much on a war belt.

Its all loaded up. I walked around the house for about a half hour. so far so good.
Link Posted: 12/8/2013 7:26:50 AM EST
only you can really decide if its too much or not. It all depends on your own physical condition, stamina, endurance blah blah blah.

What axe is that?
Link Posted: 12/9/2013 12:07:22 AM EST
A knife AND an axe? How much does that weigh?

Looks like if yourun with it or hit the handle with something the axe will smack your balls and the axehead will come back for the reach around.

I bought it on copquest. I like it a lot. Before this belt I used in on a Ares gear belt and it worked great for a duty holster.

Nice setup, and I don't think it's too much, but I'd lose the tommy hawk. I can see all kinds of pain waiting to happen with that thing on your belt.

Stow it on your ruck if you have to have it, because like that fixed blade, you'll probably only use it very rarely.

Just my two cents, but I'd go with a smaller, EDC style fixed blade on the belt and keep the big 'un on the ruck with the tommy hawk.

I only put the hawk on for shits and giggles. Everything else I normally run with.

I'd take the ax and attach it to your assault/3 day pack. That's what I did with my RMJ. If you need a blade of some type I'd stick with a knife on the belt. Other than that I would consider suspenders. With ammo, that belt is going to be heavy and I think I may also consider some kind of H harness instead of the belt if you're dead set on putting that much on a warbelt, not that it's over loaded or anything.

ETA actually after taking a better look, the only thing I'd do is move the ax. Other than that, it looks fine and not overloaded at all. Maybe still consider some type of suspenders that you could wear under your PC if you use one.

I think its funny how so many think I was serious about the ax. I said in my op I was bored and joking
