I haven't been posting here in a long time, but since there was a mention above of grey gear, this is my low profile rig, mostly grey tones.
...
Flawless, sub-moa fit and finish...all day long.


That all built on a BFG RACKMinus?

Well, here is mine. My frankenrig. Quite simple, can be worn over body armor and its just a defensive rig.

- One first aid kit pouch (the one with the twin pistol mag pouch on top, which as of today is belt mounted)

- 2 drop shotgun shell pouches totalling 42 rounds. I dont carry them at full capacity since they get cumbersome then.

- One utility pouch were I keep a multitool, some batteries, cord, a small knife and whatever else.

- The one in Les camo (Russian woodland) is a large Russian-made ALICE buttpack. Tough as nails and fits the kitchen sink if you want it. Has some real estate to attach more ALICE gear but MOLLE gear can get attached just fine. if in doubt, use zipties.

- A 2.5 litter water bladder.

- El cheapo locally made web belt, with my holster, one mag pouch and a flashlight pouch.

Sorry, I know I should be posting pics of MY stuff. Just wondering... these side plate pockets seem to be available for next to nothing. Anyone tried taking two of these and attaching them via some straps and elastic to make a chest rig? I was thinking that this might make a good small split front chest rig.

not a bad idea, but mostly by time you can sew a good harness on there you could have just made one from scratch. but I know what you mean, they are dirt cheap, I might have to whip on up just to find out.
I think the 3 mag USGI shingles are a better place to start for a platform, I've been meaning to start a thread about it for awhile now.

After reading this whole thread I'm still undecided on a chest rig, I want a split front, molle vest. The 2 that I'm trying to decide between so far are the blackhawk strike vest, and the condor ronin vest, I'll use hsgi pouches on whatever vest I go with. Its going to be a grab and go plink vest with just enough stuff to have fun with. I've got a plate carrier already so this is a light weight option. Probably with a hydration bladder and 4 rifle mags, admin pouch for stuff, and I want it to not be so long that I can't wear a molle battle belt with it.

So what are my best options that also don't cost a huge amount.

thanks

Is there a particular reason you are looking at a vest over a chest rig? unless you are looking to completely cover it in pouches (which you said this will be a lightweight rig) a chest rig will be more adjustable, lighter, vent better and clear a belt better. tactical tailor 2-piece MAV is kind of the gold standard for a simple split front. with the x-harness it should be more comfortable then most vests and still mount a hydro carrier.

http://www.tacticaltailor.com/fightlightmav2piece.aspx
http://www.tacticaltailor.com/mavbody2piece.aspx
http://www.tacticaltailor.com/xharness.aspx

If you really think you want a vest buy a USGI FLC for $10 and see how you like it. will probably outlast the condor and comes with a battle belt to boot.

ETA: ok I actually looked up the condor Ronin and it is a split front chest rig like I suggested. looks to be only a little bit cheaper then the TT fighlight though, my recommendation stands. eBay usually has some deals on MAVs as well.

Thanks thats exactly the kind of info I needed. I don't care for the bare webbing straps on my shoulders, with much weight they get fairly uncomfortable fast, too many old shoulder injuries. Tactical tailor has a padded x harness that makes it perfect though. Thats what I'll be getting.

thanks

My new/current set up. I finally gave in and decided to try this whole "battle belt/War belt" idea.... and I think I love it. Plate carrier is a Marz Tactical Gear plate carrier, pouches are a mix of Blue Force, and Tactical Tailor. Battle belt is Blackhawk!'s Enhanced Patrol belt, with ATS and Blackhawk! pouches.

Been running a Grey Ghost Gear Minimalist. I like it quite a bit as a small-footprint rig.

Hopefully this isn't like the gun thread where you get booted if you don't have pics...I can go take some pics of my 18+ year old LBE if you really insist. Always got the job done for me, although the butt pack made riding in a HMMWV a PIT***

I just acquired myself a woodland pattern GI MOLLE vest (direct from Uncle Sam - http://www.unclesamsretailoutlet.com/Fi ... p/3887.htm - get 'em while they're cheap). I'm working on building it into a general-purpose type vest - something that I can configure and re-configure to use for anything from a more tactically oriented 2/3-gun match (http://gunfighterleague.com/) to a tactical shooting course to possibly patrolling my neighborhood to keep looters out after a hurricane to maybe even just going hiking. (I'm probably not looking to kit out a serious assault vest - as a one-time infantryman, 'assault vest means a really heavy load of ammo, grenades, etc. I already have my issue ACU pattern vest built like that.)

In the interests of versatility, I think I'm going to get a few of these panels (http://www.unclesamsretailoutlet.com/AC ... p/4936.htm) and some OD green dye. My Army-issued vest came with these, and I attached 2x 2 M4 mag pouches and one of the two straps from either my IFAK or utility/canteen pouch to each, which made is easy to pull the whole assembly off the vest and put it on my IBA/IOTV. So thinking of doing something similar with this vest, except with things like shotgun shell panels and extra utility pouches instead of a huge # of mag pouches.

I have on hand right now:
1x 3 AR mag shingle, Tactical Tailor (OD)
2x 2 pistol mag pouches, SpecOps (ACU green)
1x 2 AR mag pouch, Tactical Tailor (ACU pattern)
1x service auto pistol holster, RH, Tactical Tailor (OD)

I know I definitely want to get an IFAK and at least one utility/canteen pouch (undecided between GI-type canteen, which I have a bunch of already, or a Nalgene bottle). I'm also not the biggest fan of the TT shingle - getting GI mags into the slots is a pain, I can't imagine MagPul mags are any easier, and probably more difficult. I'm also not the biggest fan of TT's 'Malice' clips, because they're a pain to thread properly through the MOLLE loops.

So if anyone has any suggestions for layouts, or recommendations for good gear that doesn't use Malice attachments, I'm willing to listen.

If you want to go minimalist, I like this guy's interpretation of the classic Chinese AK and Rhodesian FAL rigs.

My full review of the Grey Ghost here:

Takeaway: Good rig but Minimalist also means not as many features. YMMV

Current chest rig and belt setup. I'm still adding and changing pouches on the vest, tactical tailor 2 piece Mav with Xharnes back. I'm adding a hydration bladder to the back, changing out the crappy stuff pouch from condor to a admin pouch and adding a pouch to hold binocs and a med pouch. Maybe a radio pouch.
