Hardpoint Cohort-1, possibly discontinued--similars?

Jay762 ·
ALCON,   I reached out to Hardpoint Equipment about locating a Cohort-1 carrier retailer and I was informed that line of carriers was up in the air and may not be available any longer if they decide to discontinue it.   I'm seeking suggestions for a carrier which can accept standard LEO soft armor panels in addition to 10x12 plates in the $300-400 price range.  It's going to be configured as an active shooter / TAC rig for patrol / special duty tasks.  It needs loadout...

Looking for a MOLLE carrier suitable for uniform use

LawDogRD10 ·
I need a little help finding a MOLLE armor carrier suitable for uniform use. I'm a K9 handler now and have the leeway to wear one. The one I'm using has some shortcomings and I need to find one that fits my needs and looks decent. Here's what I'm using now. It's got some old panels crammed into it. My current Second Chance panels won't fit in it and it only holds large plates and not my 5x8 trauma plate. Looks like shit with my collar either smashed under it or it sticks way out. L-R is an...

I currently use one of the Point Blank carriers. It is a little different (better IMO) than the one pictured above. I got mine through Southern Uniform Supply. Pretty good customer service and delivered in 4 weeks, around $400 bucks with pouches. However, pouches that come with it aren't the best.

We wear this, http://www.gharmorsystems.com/...ucts/apb-carrier-apb I like it, only complaint is that the velcro on the sides opens up when breathing heavy or moving around, I added a piece of webbing around the back to keep it together. Most people don't mind it being lose I guess but I can't stand it. I think loose duty belts and in turn lose vest with all the crap on them are a key factor to "back pain". We keep our radio, taser, baton and cuffs on the vest.

I've got one of the Oregon City carriers which I use at work. In regards to wearing it over jackets/winter clothing - what I did was take some four inch elastic, double it up and made an elastic cummerbund which I attach the sides to. I put a piece of Velcro in the middle to keep it from sliding through the channel and Velcro on the ends to attach it to the wings. Allows enough flex for thicker clothing and activity. I like the Mayflower carriers, but don't like the idea of their proprietary...

I have one of the GH Armor TRC carriers. It's pretty comfortable, allowed ID panels front and back, good placement of pouches and such and fit soft armor and trauma panels (issued). I did slide my plates in there (10x12") and they fit as well. I was pretty happy with it...until I got fat and couldnt' fit in it any more.

I have used the Mayflower LPAAC for 5 years. Love it. Tried the LAPD/Oregon City Vest and found the Mayflower to be more comfortable and easier to fit over my jacket when it gets cold. The LAPD/Oregon City requires it to be adjusted to fit over jackets. If that matters to you.

Mayflower LPAAC. I'm a handler as well and am loving the carrier. I can slip plates in when needed and the swift clips are awesome. I've got several different swift clip placards depending what I'm going to be doing and can swap them out quickly. The Mayflower LPAC also works well. I've got several other guys in my unit running them. It's the same carrier as the LPAAC just with out all of the molle. The guys who use them like them and they are less likely to add a bunch of pouches and carry...

Best I remember they dont run them off the slanted PTT ones, but the most outboard of the standard molle rows right underneath that top PTT clip. Some of that may be flexible as well depending on the placard you run. The guys I work with are running the D3 or D3X. If you run a Vel Sys placard or a Ferro Concepts panel that may be flexible but I don't have any experience with those. Standby to standby and I will try to get more info this afternoon.

I opted not to run mine with the swiftclip setup, but a couple of guys I work with do. This is one option to get it done from Down Range Gear Down Range Gear Interface Kit . You can also piece out the parts fairly easily from any webbing/hardware shop. You don't necessarily have to run velcro on your front flap to stabilize the chest rig, but if you don't then I would definitely run the side stabilizer straps.

Thanks for the link. Did your guys have any spacing issues on the two vertical chest buckles? The LBT PALS seem to be wider and at a slight angle (PTT clip points). I'm guessing on the Slick, I would have to remove the flap and use velcro.

Found these two pics for you. The second one is an AWS plate carrier, which is very similar to the LBT 6094. Also, it seems the industry standard for spacing is 6 inches apart for most chest rig shoulder straps - meaning a D3CR or MRC chest rig will fit the same way.

The DRG interface kit will be rock-solid, with no flop or wiggle room. The key difference between it and imitations are the side stabilization pieces.

I wish the SKD LVBC came in white... Regarding plates: http://www.tyrtactical.com/pro...r-level-3-i-c-plate/ They're a touch over 4lbs, but they also stop things the SPPs won't while still being thin. ETA: I have 10x13s. They're 5.25lbs WITH backers. Forgot to get a weight WITHOUT backers. Oops. 0.70" at the thickest, 0.60" once you're far enough into the middle that the cover stops overlapping.

I'm looking to get a custom carrier to put into my outer vest carrier for work and will be hitting up Beez as well. Our department issues Second Chance vests that have two front pockets (standard 5"x8" and 7"x9"). I have the (Safariland) Protech IMPACT RT + 7"x9", but when inside the vest since I have one it's front heavy as hell. Ideally I'd like to use my armor hangar since my locker is kind of small but using steel conflicts with that. Talking with a few guys who went the Dyneema route...

I currently work as a Contracted Armed Security Professional for the U.S. Govt. I am issued a concealable Level IIIA vest that is white in color.

I would prefer not to have to run backers in the interest of keeping things low profile. Beez can't do a solid white carrier. Going to wait until Tuesday to call Mayflower/Velocity Systems, SKD, First Spear, Chase Tactical, Blue Force Gear, Extreme Gear Labs, Grey Ghost Precision, and Tactical Tailor. If none of these guys pan out I will looking into obtaining a spare soft armor carrier and having a plate bag sewn into/onto it.

Mayflower was going to be my first suggestion, (in theory) they could do a custom LPAC for your IIIA panels with the requisite plate pouches. As long as they can do white... I know the Velocity ULV plates and backers had slick white carriers back in the day and they can still be found, but they are still zesty. Maybe Deliberate Dynamics, Ferro Concepts or Perroz Designs for custom work?
