Need Assistance with Chest Rig

Post by Murph » Thu Apr 23, 2009 6:55 pm

I've got this setup created out of gear I have, and I really like it. However, it's pretty ghetto rigged. I'm trying to find a similar chest rig/rack with a hyrdo pack on the back.

The chest rig is a HSGI Warlord, with some crap tacked on.

Does anyone know of a rig like this that doesn't involve ghetto attaching things?

Thanks so much!

What exactly is the problem? If that's a TT hydro pouch there may be a certain amount of "rigging" inherent to the process of making it compatible with another manufacturer's shoulder strap system.

And what kind of belt is that? Did it come on the Warlord?

I'll see if I can find a pic of the warlord without the crap on it... but basically the belt strap attaches at the bottom sides of the rig... and then the shoulder straps go over, and are sew to the belt strap.

Kinda like this:

A quick search turned these up. Looks promising. Doesn't look cheap

I don't see a problem. :lol:

Seriously, sometimes the best solution is the one that you come up with yourself. If you ghetto rigged it, and it's exactly right for you, I say big up on you. Good job.

On the other hand, if there's something you want it to do, that it doesn't do for you, then specify that requirement and we can search accordingly.

Of course, I can see something wrong with it: it's not MultiCam. But that may not be an issue for you.

I wouldn't worry about how it looks if it runs the way you want. If your concern is all the rigged up connections staying put when you stress it, that's a different matter.
Don't confuse a belligerent and aggressive attitude with the strength, training, and conditioning needed to prevail in a fight. How do you know you have the Will To Win, if you don't even have the will to train?

Could be wrong, but isnt that a DACH, rather than a warlord?

It dosnt look like its cobbled together, the photos look like a DACH with a HSGI Hydro carrier attached properly.

Regardless, how about a wasach or SOtech falcon. Or for that matter an SOTech hellcat with padded hydrocarrier, etc etc.

The only thing that could be seen as afro-engineering are the zip ties holding the top of the hydro pouch on.

But to be honest I've seen worse from places like Cheap As Crap that are supposedly integrated. If you don't like it, why not? What is it you want done differently? If there's nothing that really bothers you with it, then stick with it. You might be surprised how much rigged gear there is in the real world.

Tactical Tailor can mod gear for you. They can move buckles, change attachment points, change webbing out, and even do custom designed stuff that you come up with.
