Chest rig feedback for SAR

bigc ·
I've been evolving my chest rig for SAR and I just can't find anything I'm happy with. I like to keep my gear modular as our mission drives our load out. Most of the time we are completing urban and wildland hasty searches so I have been using a chest rig and have my sustainment gear in a Kifaru pack. Most of the searches in my area are less than 8 hours, often 2 hours or less but we need to be prepared to be in the field longer. My latest iteration is a CMC rescue dual comms chest rig which...

It won't let me edit the error at the bottom with "my EMS brain" liked the kool aid in addition: Oles bandage is legit compared to isareli has plastic to seal chest/abadomen Velcro bit to help start wrapping wound, and not having to change directions removalable gauze to pack wound Isareli bandage is still good, but I really like the Oles

I have no comment on the actual chest rig, but if your icom radio is uhf capable, and able to accept the frs/gmrs freqs, I would simply program them into the icom. I assume it is to communicate with lost subjects that you may be searching for and not operational communications. Some may chime in and point out that transmitting on a "non certified" radio violates the FCC regulations which is true, however in the event of an emergency (which is why you are there) you can transmit on any radio...

Have you considered a kit bag from HPG?

Here is mine. I've gone through a lot of different ones and this has worked well being small. Bigger never worked well, as you have said, floppy and too much crap added. Too may chest rigs end up looking like a version of the Beverly Hillbillies truck. It started life as a Blackwater Gear drop leg magazine holder that held 4 AR mags (doubled) and 2 pistol mags. I shorted the AR mag pouches which now hold my Garmin GPS in one and my comm radio in the other. Under those 2 pouches that were...

I hear you brother. The reason I have two radios is that I can monitor our dedicated HAM stations constantly and utilize the FRS/GMRS as a team communications radio. Our less experienced members tend to only have FRS/GMRS so they will be assigned to a team lead with a HAM for comms back to the FOB/command. I do have the FRS/GMRS programmed into my ICOM as well as military channels(my radio is modded). Interesting set up you've come up with, I like it!

I use a Hill People Gear Kit Bag Recon (the one with Molle) and on it I have a BFG TenSpeed triple AR attached. The Tenspeed pouches are great for radios, GPS, Etc. There is enough leftover Molle that I have my fixed blade knife attached as well. This setup also allows for a concealed handgun, out of they way of pack waist straps... If you're interested I can grab a pic.

I use a BFG Split-minus with various molle pouches attached, I looked the TT chest rigs also but went with the BFG b/c it seemed to fit my priorities better: It's lightweight and doesn't add any bulk to what it is carrying It is big enough to split my load between my chest and back without being massive, call it medium load carrying capacity. I have seen people using full chest rigs that are way too bulky. I can unclip it in the middle and move it to the sides when it is hot for ventilation...
