Pics of your Gear

Recommended Posts

Well, I wouldn't buy a lot of it with my own money put it that way, heh.

 

Nothing amazingly fancy but it all works. Norwegian shirts and longjohns underneath your basic uniform, then there's so-called 'softies' to go between that and your outer camo layers. I'm not sure exactly what they're made of, just very puffy really, store lots of air to insulate. The gore-tex cold weather boots are actually pretty nice as are the socks, then there's many layers of gloves/mittens and a few misc. bits like woolen wrist covers, and what is by far the world's most disturbing white face mask. I scared myself when I put it on, won't be coming with me I can tell you that.

My kit in its latest forms, though putting all my gear on a chest rig's been exacerbating my bad back so will be returning to a PC.

 

(Mesh goggles were a borrow as my glasses kept fogging, also not wearing my first line as was too cold for pistol).

Got a line on some Comtacs wired for PRR so will be using those soon instead of shelling out crazy money for an adapter for my sordin's.

Dave, do you have previous back issues? I ask because your chest rig seems fairly light and I have heard other people complain about the back issues but never experienced them myself.

 

Ever consider adding hydro to the back to balence things out?

 

Either way, nice gear.

I'm quite tall and have had back issues for a few years now, it's not too bad when I'm wearing plate carriers for some reason but having the weight on my front gets my lower back and the bit between my shoulder blades sore.

 

There is actually a hydro attached to the back but afraid it didn't do much!

 

I'm going to try investing in a 6094 and CASS from LBT. Works with my USSF kit, but has a built in lumbar support and better weight distribution. As long as I keep stuff on my belt and the sides of the rig, hopefully it'll be ok.

still WIP, after receiving some more items, will go for two different impressions:

- SEALs (with Mich 2000 Helmet and 3 color desert pants)

- DEVRGU (with 6094LBT MJK, AOR1 combat shirt and MK18 MOD0 boomstick)

It looks pretty cool as it is.. A few suggestions:

For any Navy-Specops-Impression, I'd go with a Sig as a secondary rather than an M9

 

For the Devgru...kinda hard to tell, but rumor has it they almost eclusively use 416s these days, at least 416 uppers

 

 

Your FAST should be a ballistic model, without then holes in it ;)

thank you for the advices Chevieblazer!

Solid advice there, but the kit is looking very good, certain a decent start for the impressions you're doing.

 

You could pull off a Glock aswell, also one of the First Spear helmet cover would cover the Ops Core hiding the holes and be in keeping with the USSF look.

 

Also police up that comms downlead on your back! Looks perfect from snagging on something lol ;)

indeed, Scuffer. After I've seen the photos I realized that.

The cover is a good advice to cover the holes, thank you.

 

btw these two advices are the best I've received in a while. Thank you guys, I've learned a lot from them!

 

Also I wonder if for DEVGRU impression is enough to go with MJK 6094 LBT or MJK H-Harness, coz I don't really want to invest right now in a AOR1 vest/plate/rig. What do you think? It could work? I've seen some pics of possible DEVRGU whearing MJK, but not sure.

 

 

cheers,

Sorin

@ Stress:

the LBT 6094 is never "wrong" for Seals, though there seems to be a strong trend towards unicolored loadouts (in AOR or MC).

I have to say, though, my personal Seal stuff ends around 2009-10, when they quit using DCUs and BDUs

What do you mean by "what is it good for"?

 

Do you mean in term of efficiency as a camo pattern? ND was developed during the first Gulf War to deceive the enemies NV devices in the desert. The ND was supposed to conceal the carrier more efficiently. It wasn't very effective.

 

Do you mean in term of gear for reenactment? It has been seen a few times on CIA operators in various places and at various times (Astan, Irak, etc...)

 

And I like the look of it.
