I am in need of a molle type rig, something along the lines of the Eagle CIARAS (sp?). I do not need the one handed ditch ability that seems to drive the price up. I only need it to do three things...

1) be covered with molle straps
2) carry my SOFT body armor panels, IE slip my concealment vest panels inside it and wear it externally, and ...
3) be under $200.

Upgradable shoulder straps would be nice, but not a deal breaker.

Am I dreaming? On SKD's site below the CIARAS they have a plate carrier with cumberbun that looks good, for about $160, but it doesn't say if it will take soft armor panels...

Anybody?

Eagle is coming out (like in a few weeks) with a LE-version of the Maritime CIRAS that's non-releasable and is gonna sell for $310. Only gonna be available in black and ranger green, though. There's a thread with some good pics on the Lightfighter Stud Board if you wanna check it out. I'm about 75% sure I'm gonna be picking up one of these (toying with the new TT IBA cover as well) when they're released.

ETA: Didn't see the under $200 part

If it really kicks a$$ I can go up a bit, but no way $500+.

What's the new TT IBA?

Tactical tailor is right down the road...hmm...

TT IBA, stoled from Scollins in the "Multicam or ACU" thread:


His was custom job in Multicam, the standard colors are ACU and Coyote. I don't think they're on the TT website yet, but I guess they're in the store. There's also a thread about them on the Stud Board.

ETA: If he wants I'll take the pic down or host it myself....

if it works for your softarmor - if what you have is not IBA then it would be pointless to order the rig above.

CIRAS - if you have BALCS cut armor, again doesnt sound like what you have - but you know what everything will have a price and sometimes you will just have to bite the buller

Well if he can get to the TT shop, he can do a custom order for their IBA cover and they'll cut it to fit his specific panels. That's actually what Scollins up there had done.

I might have to, the CIRAS is Balcs cut too.

Incidently the panels I have are in a Second Chance vest. I am in plainclothes now and just want all my stuff in a package I can throw on in an emergency.

Just get a plate carrier and put your vest on under it.

I have soft armor, and an assault vest, the point of the exercise was to combine the two, and gain the flexibility of the molle system at the same time.

Disregard, I found something in the EE sorta similar I think will do nicely. Much cheaper too.
