Working on some sort of assaulter's back panel thingmajig for my RRV.

@Pkekyo-Nor: I'd put the frag pouches on top, and then the flashbang pouches upside down on the bottom. Makes it easy to open/remove the grenades, and you might be able to reach and open the flash pouches yourself that way.

 

And a pic:

Yeah its a WAS RICAS Compact, i prefer it to the full size RICAS, i use it with a Molle belt set up.

 

Its Tan, but yeah it is really CB, i had some tan pouches and they were too light.

 

Still fits in nicely with my new TM 4.3 Desert Warrior :)

FELDJAGER: I'm lovin' that RAV, but of course you already know that :P

 

Pkekyo-Nor: Sweet RRV, but are all those mags necessary? I think I like your older set up better, IIRC, but I like that you play around with it often, it's smart to change to find out what works and what does not. Good job!

 

CPOWilder: Nice CIRAS, I really like that it has the green Velcro on the quick release like the real one does. Where did you get it? Cool set up man, I love the CamelBak in M81, it adds a certain characteristic to it that you just don't see often in vests as everyone seems so anal about matching colors, not that there's anything wrong with that though.

Well... Once feces hit the proverbial fan, I'm kinda heavy on the trigger, and I'm running low-caps, so I'm sure I'll find a use for them ;)

And if nothing else - no/lesser need to reload between games.

Frankly though... I've just run out of sensible things to put on it :P

Thanks Moose. I got it from WGC last August...It's changed a little since this pic was taken and is probably still going to change. I've been considering getting a MAP to replace the Camelbak but I'm still undecided. Any suggestions?

Pkekyo-Nor: Well, if you need that many then it looks like a great set up :D

 

 

CPOWilder: I'm really liking it, I've always wanted one! I think you should keep the CamelBak, I think a MAP would make it look too much like the rest of the CIRAS's out there, not that MAP's look bad but they're just quite common. I own a MAP and I like it but there just seems to be nothing to put in it besides the bladder(which sucks, the PANTAC one has started to leak after only a few times of use). I'm sure that you'd like it, though if you have nothing to put in it then stick with what you've got, it looks awesome! You could always go with another CamelBak model, something similar to a MAP like the HAWG, I believe, then you could also don and doff it for easier access to personal equipment. The PANTAC MAP has shoulder straps but they are very uncomfortable and just plain annoying while worn over a vest/chest rig. CamelBak makes nicer, more comfortable straps that are a way better design all around.

 

Go with what you want but I'd advice you to check out some of the other CamelBak designs. Hope you find something perfect!

Eventually, didn't bring my gear to work.

I'm also planning to make hard side plates, after seeing some in person it shouldn't be hard to replicate the single curve.

I'd only put the .45 on the chest if you had a valid reason, or really don't like droplegs. Though some will say an admin isn't really useful, I actually just ordered one because I found that I could really use one. Can't stick everything into my shoulder pockets.

 

Is that a sling on the MAP? What's it for?

Lizzard - I do hate drop legs myself, they just never seem to fit right. As far as the admin goes, I would prob get more use out of it then the 45 and worst come to worst I can put it on my hip, nvr ran a secondary on a rig b4. Its a Retention bungee weapons catch, IE rifle slung on my left side, clip the bungee to the front of the vest to go hands on with out my rifle flying around if u can understand.

I see what you're saying. So the rifle stays at your front but the bungee holds it tight to your body?

 

What's your problem with droplegs? Doesn't stay tight on your leg or something?
