My loadout

Post by DegreE »

Some pictures of the Swiss Arms plate carrier I just picked up for a damn good deal from a member here.

I need some zipties to secure my drinking tube to the vest, I plan on having it come down from the bladder, under my arm and up my chest. Along the seam of the vest.

Nice kit bro, the only thing I'm trying to identify is the black strip down the back left side of your vest. I'm thinking a Magpul molle threader or something similar.

NIce bro. It may not be worth it but if you're running the hydro tube under your arm would it make more sense to run your hydro carrier upside down so you don't get the hose flex at the top? May not work with that kind of hydro pack, just a thought.

Wont work because it's a camelbak bladder and it needs gravity...

But the flex isn't bad. I just finished it:

After looking at the pictures, I removed the first ziptie closest to the badder, it looked like it was damaging the MOLLE webbing but it wasn't, its a loose thread. I simply took a lighter to it and it looks better now.

Is this vest strictly for airsoft or will be also used for work exercises?

How is the fit? You can add foam plates inside to give it a little body.
Do not meddle in the affairs of a dragon. For you are crunchy, and taste good with ketchup.
