Ok, sorry those that know me(if there are any here LOL) know im not a guy thats into the latest greats hsld stuff,just me,, nothing against it , just has no place in my set up right now.
Ok, reason im asking is that ive got a lil project im working on. I know that alot you guys have these setup for combat use,police work or general TO GO set ups with small to large BOB's.
For those with line 2 set ups( lbe's,vest,carriers ect ect) Do you carry any rain gear or shelter's?
For those that DO or want to what would be a good set up,
I know with the vest/carrier/LBE set ups your space is limited to any pouches ect. What if you could have a small shelter that would weigh under 1lb with lines,stakes, ect be able to setup in 4-6 diff ways in minutes? Would you use it.
id like to know what some of you guys that would like a set up like that would want it to be, colors, size,weights,, ect.
right now,,my 1st run,, test /R+D one will fit in this if packed correctly.
tho a slightly larger one would prolly work better, as of now i store it in a basic 4x6 stuff sack.
here is a pic of one way that it can be set up
can be that,basic lean to, small A frame set up(with out any poles if need be)
for mods not tryin to sell this thing just trying to get some input,,ideas of what folks want outta a setup, before i start making them for guys sides my self and a few other in my AO.
thanks for any help guys or input.
I did eight years of living under a poncho hooch, or less, never again! I carry a North Face 3+ Season. It fits in my Eagle 3-day, w/ water purfier, 5 gal blivet, mre's, and s'bag. It is not an everyday thing though. It is mainly sitting in my Eagle Ruck for long-term SHTF/BO deep wilderness sustainment of the type found up here in the NW....
true but ever weigh a USGI poncho which is larger and twice as heavy
I really enjoy campcraft and tarp design, so I use what I have on hand.
This is my pole bed, uses 2 ponchos and mosquito netting. It is traditional A frame design with cross pole on top for support. It held up very nicely for 4 nites.
German Flectar RipStop poncho.
SG 9x9 tarp. It started out as the HOLDEN Design and I expaned it to form my own. There is enuff room for 2 adults and their gear. 3 foot of head room.
I have an Ecotat Shelter unit. It's a:
a. Cagoule (Great Coat).
b. Anorak (Short Coat) with cape.
d. Sleeping Bag Cover.
g. Rescue Litter.
i. Be capable of making into a 8x6 foot long Air Marker Panel.
j. To completely enclose a person in the sitting position.
j. Expedient Camouflage Cover to avoid enemy detection
I bought several of these surplus, but they still had the tags on them new! I think I gave 60 bucks for them. Way cool!
cool lil shelters but at 4lbs....to heavy imho
