I am going thru and updating my gear. Need to replace a Tactical Chest Rig that has suffered too much abuse. I am open to suggestions. A few requirements.
1- carry 6 M4 mags min.
2- carry 4 G21 mags min.
3- molle attach points on harness.
4- molle attach point for IFAK

Damn battle belt don't look any better than chest rig does. This is probably going to get exspensive.

You can possibly offset the cost by selling the old stuff.
Post pics, I'm always looking!

Hmm... I should have asked first. Are you looking for just the chest rig or a plate carrier style rig?

For chest rig... there are only 2 major ones I would consider right now.
The SKD PIG. It's a little larger but looks like a great rig.

or the Shellback Tactical Banshee which is a little more form fitting but is at a great price point.

The belt I have I'm absolutely sold on. There are plenty of alternatives, but I am really, really happy with mine.
The HSGI Battle Belt is a great belt. Very comfortable and as strong as it gets.

Have you looked at the pig ucr over at skd? I think that may fit the bill nicely... I think they should be in stock by the end of the month.

Thanks. These brands I' ve seen in the field before, but you can't remember everything. I'll go look and get back to you. I've been using this same gear from back when they only had 2 colors available. OD and OD. It was extremely well made and has served admirably across 3 continents. 2 mates have already spoken for it.

I'd recommend Original SOE gear. The AK/M4 rig has pals and holds 8 mags. I use a micro rig with the slim H harness, Works great! You may like the NSW rig. I don't think it's got pals but its got a lot of room.

They got a funky ordering process but great gear!

Yeah, I have. I'm not trying to spam or troll but he's got good stuff. I havnt tried much of anything else other than a few 5.11 pouches, a Blue Force sling, crap issued to me, and a few other small a accessories here and there. SOEs gear says "Made in Motherfucking USA," so I had to try them out. I'd love to try out other rigs but it costs $$$$.

Ha... now that I look at it, it's almost a 1:1 match to mine. No this is not my rig, This was a picture I found on Flicker I think of a review that Bryan did on the PIG.
The differences I can see between mine and this is I keep my chem lights up high and my mag pouches stuffed together. I don't have that gap between, but other than that it's almost exactly the same. Even the patches are close.
I have the ITS patch with the Crew Leader Plank above it, NKA APOS patch. I moved my IR glint flag to my helmet so I have a standard arid flag on the carrier.

Will do Lao. Any equipment I've sold has been posted on eBay but listed in these forums first at a reduced price.
All I have left for sale now is a Beretta 96A1, a S&W M&P-15 complete upper, and that rig will probably be next. I should probably do it now while the AirSoft guys are hunting for gear.

Some of those guys have more money in their equipment than I do and mine is intended to save my life.

Hold on Mr. Robber... let me get my chest rig on and load the BBs in my fake assault weapon... LOL :)

If I spent money on all that fancy stuff, it would be the real stuff for sure!

Yeah, some airsoft guys take shit too far. I play it, but I also use an AK-74 with mid cap mags (holds around 180 bbs...which go fast in airsoft) for it. Which is the rifle I use in real life. So for me, it's about as realistic I can get for training without sending bodies to the city morgue.

Valid point and my apologies also.

I have a chest rig I use periodically (although I mainly use it for my friends that come out to shoot with me). It's a Blackhawk and non-modular, but it holds 8 AK/AR mags and has 2 pouches for pistol mags, lights, multitools and other small things like that.

It's pretty similar to this one: http://www.blackhawk...uches,852,2.htm

I am going thru and updating my gear. Need to replace a Tactical Chest Rig that has suffered too much abuse. I am open to suggestions. A few requirements.
1- carry 6 M4 mags min.
2- carry 4 G21 mags min.
3- molle attach points on harness.

Damn battle belt don't look any better than chest rig does. This is probably going to get exspensive.

Thanks
