Pictures of your Plate Carriers

Recommended Posts

I don't mean to be a *rickroll*, but I don't understand that set-up. How do you access/use half those pouches? How do you shoulder your rifle? Are you right or left handed, or are you so ambidextrous that you make Chris Costa your *badgeress*? When are cyalumes more important than reloads? When's an admin pouch more important than reloads? Why do you even have an admin pouch when you've already got velcro on the upper chest and two empty utility pouches? Although as you're running 8+1 primary mags you probably won't need them, where are your pistol mags?

I think you've got the potential for a good set-up there, but how it's laid out at the moment doesn't seem efficient.

*I'm overly blunt at times, just ask Spetz....

I'm guessing the mag pouches are placed that way for easier access while prone? Also, if he has any pistol mag pouches, perhaps they're on a 1st line?

Vila is correct mag pouches are placed that way for easier access while prone, cyalumes are just there for the pic a pistol mag pouch will go there when in arrives, i can access all the pouches relatively easily just takes practice to get used to the position of them,

 

I can shoulder  a rifle easily,  the radio and sidearm don't get in they way and the utility pouches would usually contain spare ammo/snacks.

 

But the layout of the pouches does get moved around suit the environment if at CQB mag pouches get move to the front, but at woodland the go on the side as you tend to go prone more when in a woodland environment than at a CQB site.

Wolf, personally, I'd rather have and not need than need and not have. I try to run inserts on all of my carriers, and then run some sort of mag setup on top of that (usually yielding a total of 6 mags). That way, if I'm playing a shorter game, I can close up the insert, and run three mags.

 

I typically shoot a lot. When I ran a chest rig, I would run 10 mags. Now that I run carriers, I run six up front, one upside down on the cummerbund or belt via kydex or fast-mag, and one in the gun, for a grand total of 8. I also keep a fully loaded speedloader in my fanny pack.

I mainly use single shot, but when the heat is on can move to auto and these are only 75 round mags. Some games I will use only 4 or 5, if it's been a long session I can go through all 8.

You could always buy mags with larger capacity. Or add more pouches and go for a lil bit of realism with lower capacity mags...or just filling mags a certain amount. Personally, I dont like rigs to be very bulky as I mainly play cqb.

 

You could also do some research and see how people set up their plate carriers ...then think about how you want yours set up.

Blarock,, awesome setup! Real crye I assume!? Was there any wait for it from Crye or was it picked up else where/2nd hand?

 

Yup, Real Crye CPC (M/M)

 

I ordered if from leafgear.nl, retailer from Crye in the Netherlands. It wasn't in stock, but I only had to wait 1-1,5 months.

 

And it's very comfy, Love it.

 

(I made a small calculation, and for the moment, I have about 2800€ on Crye gear lying around. :S ) 

 

 

And to join the mag-discussion:  I play with about 5-7 mid/lowcaps, and always play single or burst.

Same set up for field and CQB. I carry 3 AR mags in my BFG triple on the plate carrier and two in esstac pouches on my battle belt plus one in the gun. It keeps a slimmer profile with all my mags up front and clean on the sides it allows you to hug the ground a lot tighter too.I keep a few mags in my MAP pack in case I need them.

That's a byproduct of the angle of the photograph and the fact there were no plates in the vest when photographed. The plate carrier is roughly 1/2 inch longer than the ESAPI plates that were in it due to the nature of the soft armor.
