All right guys time to put your thinking caps on. I have been in search of some type of LBE set up for about 6 months now. All I can seem to find is the 3 pocket chi/com chest pouch or the rain pattern 4 mag pouches. Does anyone know if/where a person can find a good LBE vest that will carry multiple mags, canteens, etc. Most vests that I have found the AK mags won't fit since they are made for AR mags. If anyone has pics of there LBE's or knows where I can get one please let me know

Most of Eagle Industries vests will hold 1 AK mag per pouch. Their ISSAK will hold 9-12, I believe. www.eagleindusrries.com. Hope this helps.

There are ALICE-type pouches (same as the M16 pouch, but for the AK) available at different sources. Quality varies, so I'd check them out in person first if possible, or go with a reputable company. Then you can just use normal LBE and just use the AK pouches.

If you have to have a vest, most of the major players in tactical gear can hook you up with one that will work with AK mags. Try London Bridge, Blackhawk, Eagle, and the smaller guys that are all over the place on the net. Really the smaller operations tend to have higher quality stuff, but you get what you pay for.

Doug Ford aka Tantal sells Russian LBE in the form of "assault vests". Very reasonable and real Russian military.

He's a great guy to deal with and I highly recommend him.

That Chechnyan guy (the 'My Jihad' author) recommended this company:

www.soegear.com/

They'll make you an AK vest, and apparently they outfit several SEAL teams (if it's true, I do not know).
