Yes, I know it is not an easy question(s) without giving any specifics of mission.

Can you really carry a capable second line with just a chest rig & hydro carrier?

I was curious about the choices some folks have made regarding a set up their own, and some general thoughts regarding the question. Maybe some specifics regarding pouch position and selection.

Sorry if this comes off newbish, I'm not. Just musing.

Second line is fighting gear, so yes you can carry it all on a chest rig. I have a Tactical Tailor 2 piece MAV with four two-mag pouches up front and two general purpose pouches (one on each side). It holds everything I need and fits under a ruck.

Using the words of James Yeager to describe my chest rig: I carry two trauma kits; one to cause it, one to relieve it.

Bullets and medical supplies are all I carry on my chest rig. My belt only has a pistol on it. Everything else is either 1st line or 3rd line.
