    I'm confused. Does this look or not look like a mall ninja gear?

    Go back a re-read the thread for some better understanding. This is fine, not terribly different than what I would use. The problem is when people keep getting a bigger and bigger profile, stacking pouches on top of pouches, or double and triple decker mag pouches

    Excellent post, Greg. I remember when I first started SWAT in the late 80's, I carried a lot of crap back then. As I became more seasoned and went on lots of Ops, I pared WAY down. There is a fine line between enough gear and too much. For me now as a civilian, it is a lot less than when I was running Ops, but there is still a need for a fair amount of gear (lights, mags, multi-tool, blade, 1st Aid/trauma gear).

    In my personal opinion, I think that rig captures pretty much the right amount of gear. I don't own this one but would buy it if I didn't already have too much crap. Greg's additional photos should help illustrate the point a little more.

    I know all this from lessons learned the hard way on deployments. When we first got started back right after 9/11, everyone tried to carry all kinds of mags and pouches on plate carriers, drop rigs, etc. Literally every month you would see guys drop unnecessary or excessive kit. The results were often like that rig (mission dependant of course).

    I specialized in high threat protection, vehicle stuff and CQB. My record spare rifle mag count, including spares in my assault pack, was 16. That was stupid. Fortunately, I was able to critically look at my needs and learn the lessons I was being taught. After awhile, I ( and most guys I knew) would run around 4-5 spare mags on a plate carrier and a bandolier in the pack.

    Domestically, a guy could get by quite well with even less.

    Like I said, I'll get some pics of kit for Urban and CQB this weekend. I see them as 2 different concepts.

    I believe there is a human drive for "one size fits all" solutions. I understand the desire...having one kit is simple after all. But it doesn't work that way. Different missions and goals require different kit.

    I think we are smart enough to grasp that!
