Just wondering if they make tactical gear for fat people?

Ever been to a gun show?

If you are fat, why do you need "tactical" gear? Knee pads and a "Tactical" munitions vest aren't going

to save you if you're as big as a barn. But, they will make you a pretty spiffy looking corpse.

I saw a shoulder holster (underarm holster in this case) on a fella that must have weighed 600lbs. The straps looked like they were 10' long!

And as far as that picture goes, you can tell he has the "tactical" knowledge to go along with his

"tactical" hardware seeing as he is standing completely upright so as to minimize the visible target area

of his body.

It's one of the classics from the airsoft picture ridicule contest back when KangarooAR15A3 was around (he sponsored the contest).

Negative, the correct description is "POS" (Person of Size).
Link Posted: 9/13/2005 9:33:42 AM EDT
*sigh* I can see the maturity in most of these posts.

First off, I plan to do things with the tactical gear, why else would I want it.

If you have nothing positive to add to this thread, don't post. It isn't hard.

Anyone have any links or names where i can find bigger sized tac gear, and its not like I weigh 500 pounds, jeez.

True... but I'm probably going to spot his heaving shoulders and labored breathing before he ever even

winces from my shot. It's hard to be "combat efficient" when you're fat... plain and simple.

You didn't say it was for you. It sounded like a typical juvenile question per the norm of this forum.

For what it's worth, I run about 280 and anything in XXL (48-52" chest) tends to fit me fine.
Link Posted: 9/13/2005 9:40:57 AM EDT
Yes. I've had to order a 64" riggers' belt from SOE for a customer. He's got plenty of room for mag pouches.

According to you? I know you've seen how fat I am, or whether or not I can control my breathing, or if I have heaving shoulders. Who says I'd be running around? Who says I dont shoot you first, stop being an asshole for a second and either help me out and find some gear, or just stop posting.

I didn't ask to be picked on, I asked help to find some gear, I'm a fellow arfcommer, if you cant help me out without picking on me, then you're a sad individual.

There is more to people that appearances my friend.
Link Posted: 9/13/2005 9:41:47 AM EDT
You guys are brutal.

I don't know how large you need, but Blackhawk and Eagle do go to XXL IIRC.

You can also find Royal Robbins Vests those sizes as well.
Link Posted: 9/13/2005 9:45:57 AM EDT
I have a 48" waist. I'm about 6'0

I haven't seen any sizes on any tac gear sites I've been on!

I'll check out blackhawk and Royal Robbins, thanks.

most should have conversion charts for inches to sizes.

You are welcome

Whoa... calm down, trigger. I was talking to PanzerofDoom before he ran back into his world of

"Evercrack". I'm not trying to put you down at all. If anything, I'd rather motivate you to lose

weight so that you could better your quality of life.

Don't you have the molle compatible snack-pouch? You wouldn’t lose them if you did.
Link Posted: 9/13/2005 9:57:39 AM EDT
Just a note, there is a difference between being “heavy” and being “obese”. Heavy personnel may not be as fast some lighter people but can or with training can have adequate cardio vascular ability to keep up in combat environments. In general they do better in combat zones than real skinny guys because conditions that occur in combat normally mean a vast drop in weight (I lost almost 20 lbs in ODS and 30 lbs in OIF 1). On the other hand the obese are not well suited to combat conditions because of a lack of conditioning.

The reason the military spends so much time on physical conditioning is that getting to fight is often the hardest part of the fight, and in shape troops do much better in the fight than those who aren’t in shape. Also, despite what everyone thinks you spend most of your time patrolling, humping and moving around in a combat zone even when in an actual combat unit, Shooting is a very small part of the job.

I'm not in the military. It's for my own use. I can still be "tactical" just not as fast as people in better shape.

He just admits he may have a weight problem. I hope he takes care of it though. Dont seek clothing and equipment to fit you, thats not going to help you.

Well actually I think fat people having clothing that fits them benefits everybody considering the alternative.
Link Posted: 9/13/2005 10:05:24 AM EDT
The Wasatch is huge, it is meant to wear armor underneath. Mine had room to spare with both a interceptor and plates on, so it may fit your needs.

I admit I have a weight problem, but I want gear for now until I can lose the weight, the weight wont go away in a week :)

So in the meantime I want stuff that fits now. Dont post if you're an asshole.

Could someone tell me the name of the Wasatch maker, or however it's spelled/pronounced :)

But instead he sets himself up with a question like that and expects a different response. Watch how you ask the questions tuff guy, makes all the difference in the world. Personally I am barrel chested with big shoulders, not fat, not Arnold, just different than the some of the standard infantry guys, I have to pay attention to which packs and gear I buy as well. Just be careful how you ask your questions or you will be attacked every time, and being the new guy on the block, don’t start telling people the rules of posting.

Jethro Tull - Fat Man
Don’t want to be a fat man,
People would think that I was
Just good fun.
Would rather be a thin man,
I am so glad to go on being one.
Too much to carry around with you,
No chance of finding a woman who
Will love you in the morning and all the night time too.
Don’t want to be a fat man,
Have not the patience to ignore all that.
Hate to admit to myself half of my problems
Came from being fat.
Won’t waste my time feeling sorry for him,
I seen the other side to being thin.
Roll us both down a mountain
And I’m sure the fat man would win.
