I was wondering if anyone had either the PIG plate carrier and First Spear Strandhogg plate carrier? I just ordered the PIG plate carrier and saw the strandhogg right after I ordered... Anyone at SKD have a preference? I like that the PIG fits all plates and is one size fits all but I like that the Strandhogg has the tubes for quick don/doffing. I was thinking about getting this the adaptive cummerbund system from first spear to turn the pig into a hybrid strandhogg. Or should i return the PIG and get the strandhogg? http://www.first-spe...roductid=17834

I have a PIG plate carrier and love it, but I'm not using it for daily use.  90% of the time it sits in my gear box asking me when I'm going to wear it again.

I've never tried the Strandhogg carrier but I've use MayFlower, Banshee and some other lesser brands, but the PIG has been my favorite.

I personally use an SKD PIG PC with the Tubes http://www.first-spe...&cat=274&page=1 retrofit kit. It is a little cheaper than what you linked to, and is the correct part you want. We actually used to sell it for this purpose but it wasn't a huge seller for us.

We contemplated carrying the Strandhogg, as it is a great PC, but we ended up making the STT with First Spear instead. The PIG PC has all the comfort minded items you want trust me. I used it extensively in Afghanistan.

 

In the end, Both the Strandhogg and our PIG PC are the two best PC's out there, in my opinion. I have a Strandhogg at my house from when we were collaborating on the STT.
