Pictures of your Plate Carriers

It does only when you go prone (tactical seesaw, anyone?). But otherwise, you'll be fine. The HSGI line is designed for doorkickers, not guerillas.

MGS4 Praying Mantis inspired kit... except Roecar Defense PMC instead :D

 

Pantac CIRAS

 

Did your CIRAS come with the groin protector/codpiece? Or did you buy that separately?

I had to get it extra from WGC, however my CIRAS did come with medium sized SAPI plates (Replica of course) which I then put into my Eagle LVAC

What has the best fit, a CIRAS-MAR or a RAV? I want a small size.

 

Just need PANTAC to release a small RAV, they already have small CIRAS's.

 

I am leaning towards a SG RAV, I already have a Khaki RRV.

CIRAS-MAR is just a better design. I always had the cummerbund of the RAV sag because of the front closure design. New ones have snaps, but that just makes putting it on that much more annoying and the 07 model is just like the CIRAS-LAND. With the CIRAS-MAR you can also take the rig on and off without completely undoing it. Now if it was a choice between the CIRAS-LAND and the RAV, I'd say the RAV because the CIRAS-LAND offers nothing over the RAV and the RAV looks hot.

Ya, I really like the RAV and I think I want something other than tan, as I have a tan RRV and I don't like the look of a CIRAS in Smoke Green but I absolutely love the RAV.

 

I don't have enough money for a new rig now anyway, just want to check everything ahead of time.

Just need my pouches and I'm set. :D

 

The Smoke Green HSGI shoulder pads aren't really that bright, but the flash doesn't seem to agree. <_<

I think the RAV is a far superior design.

 

I don't know about that, never even seen one in real life!

 

I would expect a CIRAS-MAR to be more stable though, but I don't plan on having such a heavy kit, its not my style. So, I think the RAV design wouldn't be bad, I only want a little ammo, maybe grenades, some GP pouch and maybe a holster. Right now I do seem to be more into a Smoke Green RAV rather than a Khaki CIRAS, it seems more exotic though its getting common because of PANTAC.
