+1 on the MOLLE, but the fixed vests aren't HSLD enough for my personal tastes.
I like to have my mag pouches all set up on my weak/reaction side. I can't do that with 99.99% of the static rigs on the market.
I'm starting to move away from the full plate carriers and onto the lighter suspender and cummerbund setups like the Rhodesian Recce styles. The full carriers are too hot and restrictive to keep everything high speed.
