    That setup just so happens to be what SI was selling back in 2014 when I bought it run at Doug Little's RFG3 class. Since then I have switched from the drop leg holster to belt mount for fast on/off capability. The med pouch is behind the dump pouch, although I have never added anything to it or the radio pouch, perhaps I should get off my a$$ and find a med kit for it. The belt is adjusted so its tight to my body and the suspenders really are not carrying any of the weight, but holds it at a good height while I buckle up. It worked out great for class with running around, jumping up and grabbing the rafters at the range to do pull-ups, walking around the forest in my neighborhood for some shooting expeditions, and a couple times at night when strange things were afoot. Also did try it out with a Maxpedition 25L bag (Falcon2) one time when setting up for some local disturbances. It was still a comfortable set up with the war belt on and back pack with 5 or 6 extra AR mags, an extra G19 for my wife, another handful of Glock mags, med kit, and a couple bottles of water.

    4 max. Remember that stuff on the belt is for speed. If you need more they can go in a trim pack on your back. Or run in combo with a chest rig.

    Lighter and trimmer equals greater mobility. Greater mobility keeps you alive.
    Thank you...

    My conglomeration that I put together also has a drop leg holster. I think you did the right thing, I want to find one that still sits low but not all the way down to clear the armor.

    Ok so dumb question.
    If you need a war belt like that why don't you need armor as well? Wouldn't a plate carrier simplify the issue?
    Be alert, stand firm in the faith, act like a man, be strong. Your every action must be done with love.

    Multiple layers, that way your main loadout is separate from plate carrier. I don’t know if that’s good of bad other then you have a choice to use or not to use the armor. Plan would be to use armor too..

    I can't find it but it was either Greg or Sua that had an article on them. Might have been on the old blog too. From what I remember the long and the short of it was for unmounted stuff the belt is a better option because it distributes the weight better and is less taxing on the body with the weight on the hips. A chest rig was the better option for mounted work when jumping in and out of trucks because its easier to sit and you don't have to support the weight all the time on your own. If combining them try to keep more of the gear on the belt and off the armor for the same reasons. Hopefully Greg or Sua will comment.

    This could be anything from patrol to recon, anything where you may need a big kit.... Maybe you want to Ruck 20 miles to where you are going to recon, would you wear armor all the time? I doubt it, this is where everything would be out the window and people are running operations.

    You might be interested in a couple of videos from Garand Thumb on Youtube. Specifically his videos Basics of RECCE and Recon Kit and Basics of Urban Combat Survival and Assault Pack Setup.
