Which plate carrier for me??

Feardo37 ·
Hey man I need a plate carrier and I need some recommendations. My budget is around 300 but I could go up if the upgrade is worth it. I shoot real steal and also play Airsoft When playing Airsoft I do milsim events as well as regular skirmishes. Milsim events are at least a day long. I need something comfortable enough to Wear for day(s) but also slim enough to play in only 30-40 minute games as well. I need MOLLE on the admin area for tactical universal clip. Modularity would also be very...

Mission Critical Peice of Gear...

tugboat12 ·
So, this is probably the single most valuable piece of gear I own, and the most mundane. It is the Mini MBT (Multi-Battery Tester) by ZTS. Pretty much everything takes batteries these days. And when they go dead it is inconvenient at best, or straight up catastrophic depending on the gear and mission... The fact that I never had one of these or knew of their existence is painful in hindsight. I don't know how many times I have had shit go down on me even though I just put in "new" batteries.

Any interest in a run of HSGI Strobe Light Pouches?

3ACR_Scout ·
Hi folks, It seemed to be a consensus here that the High Speed Gear strobe light pouch is one of the better products out there for a dedicated strobe pouch, but HSGI discontinued it a few years ago, I think as they transitioned to their TACO line. I was hoping to find two Multicam pouches (I did get an OD pouch thanks for another member here), but I've had no luck. Here's the old SKD listing for the pouch: http://www.skdtac.com/HSGI-Strobe-Pouch-Modular-p/hsg.218.htm I contacted HSGI, and...

Ares Inner and Outer LE Duty Belt

Brad Trittipo ·
Aries Inner and Outer LE Duty Belt What is the big deal with this belt? In August of 2012 I spoke with Jake of Ares Gear in reference to their Duty Belt. I was interested in what made his duty belt different from other Nylon duty belts on the market. I explained that I have avoided Nylon Duty Belts my entire 13 years in Law Enforcement, except for the one year as a Jailer when we experimented with a “new” brown Nylon duty belt. That trial ended in failure due to lack of accessories, lack of...

I would have loved to have a course like this to point beginners to. Bloody good work mate! Sounds like it would be fun. I'm finding myself passing along what I've learnt the hard way to my scouts now that I've become a scout leader.

There are a lot of folks teaching SERE, Bushcrafting, and Tactical stuff, but not so many teaching just good basic outdoor skills, or as a friend calls them Boy Scout Skills for adults. That is going to be our focus, and I think this class is a good example.

Hey folks, I’ve been trying to get in contact with Bigfoot1786, who had asked for two of the strobe pouches but never completed the process with me. I’m putting this out publicly now in case any of you know him (or so that he’ll hopefully see this). If I don’t hear anything back by New Year’s, I’ll offer up the two extra strobe pouches to the group. IANQ is first in line for one, because I had him down as a standby since the original order. If someone wants to get on deck for the second...

Thanks for the feedback. As I said, I'm suspicious about that low price they quoted, so I'll post an update here when I get more info from them, which will include a small amount to distribute their shipping cost per pouch, and then I would calculate postage on an individual basis. They did say that they would need me to confirm how many I intended to order before they could give me a final price quote. Dave

I could go for one. I'd love to get a couple of their old smoke grenade pouches, but those are also discontinued. They seem to have ditched several excellent products after Gene sold the company.

The smokes were excellent. I use one with my Vortex monocular. Not to add to your load 3ACR_SCOUT, but would they make a run of those as well?

I'll ask about the smokes too - I was just looking at those today after reading the discussion about current grenades and thinking that I'd like to get some of those. My impression is that they still have the patterns for these past products but have focused on the TACO design, so they've eliminated those older "conventional" pouches. Personally, I don't really like the "busy" design of the TACO with the elastic cord and everything. Maybe I'm old fashioned... Dave

At that price, I'm probably in for two also. Two rigs, why not? When you clarify the price, ask if custom order is all the same color also. I can live with MC but prefer OD... maybe I can trade you for that OD one you already got if this comes through

Id be in for 2 at $10, maybe even 2 at $18. If you get to pick color ways other than Multicam I'd be in for coyote or Woodland as a second. HSGI has been producing some of their TACOs in Woodland lately Thanks. It looks like a great pouch.

Since this is custom, I suggest checking to see if they can use the WTF attachment system rather than those awful Malice clips. This is the 21st century.

Both are headed "smoke grenade pouch" I think one should be "strobe". Color is not critical to me, whatever works easiest for you. Thanks for all the effort

"OD green" is generic to me. You can toss that and put me in the Ranger green column. And I for one am fine falling back to anything but black (or UCP!). If prices stay good, go ahead and add me for 2 smokes as well.

Based on the $10 price that HSGI quoted, I have a feeling they may not be including a MALICE clip with the pouch. I'm personally OK with that, because I have a stash of WTF straps that I can use with mine. I definitely prefer those over MALICE clips and will use WTFs for mine, but I doubt that HSGI is going to convert over to those for this order. I'm guessing that just about all of us have extra MALICE clips lying around, but please let me know if anyone needs one. If they don't come with...

I wouldn't worry about ordering too many. I for one would grab an extra if you can't get rid of them. And like you said, there will be the inevitable, "can't believe I'm just seeing this". Slight thread drift, I've used both MALICE and WTF, and always feel like there has to be something better. Anyone used the Maxpedition tacties or any of the other options?

Ok, folks, I heard back from HSGI. Here's the rundown: They can only do special orders in multiples of 12 (I think this is a change from when I first inquired last year). They will produce multiple colors, but only in multiples of 12, so if we want something other than Multicam, we have to order 12 of them. At this point, I'm inclined to order 24 Multicam, which is the exact number of requests that I have, but if a few people might want an extra for a buddy or something, I'll bump it up to...

I swear I was up there on the chart right earlier, but I wanted to get 2 strobes, 1 smoke, so you are already up from your original count, yup. Did they stick to the $10 price for strobes after all, or have my reading skills devolved that much?
