Narrowed down the my choices of plate carrying down quite a bit to either the PIG or the BRIG based on some advice from folks over in the tactical gear section... now a few last minute questions before I punch in an order:
1. Are there any expected differences between the Brig pre-production and the production models?
2. It was stated in the group buy thread that multicam was being looked at, but it would likely be easier to pay for the national debt due to good multicam fabric being expensive as balls... any ideas on a guesstimate when this might be available?
Asked this in the tac forum, figured I'd ask here as well to see if I could solicit any more opinions. I currently have two tactical tailor 2-piece multi-cam MAVs with the extra Y-harness add-on for my girlfriend and myself. Both are set up to carry 10 30rd PMAGs in addition to 4 13rd XD45 mags (thanks rolly!!!) They're pretty comfy and I'm mostly used to moving about in them. I also recently acquired a bunch of 7.62 PMAG pouches for the OBR I also just bought, but haven't made up a vest for it yet..
Does anyone have any opinions on how much of a bitch it would be to wear a BRIG under the MAV? Would you consider the aggravation of readjusting the MAV repeatedly to accommodate +brig and -brig (ie. I know there are going to be times where I'm going to want the mobility over armor) worth getting a separate plate carrier altogether?
What would you guys do in this situation if you knew buying the extra gear wouldn't break the bank?
