Left to right:
Compass/First aid pouch
M56 Small arms ammo pouch
M1911A1 Pistol double mag pouch
M56 Canteen pouch

M1911A1 Holster (repro)

Might ditch the pistol things and add two more canteen pouches for more mag/grenade storage.
In time I might get another STABO and run a Korean war era BAR belt through it for a SF/SOG Kit.

Mr Evolution LOVES his morale patches!
I'm noticing a lot of you guys tend to center your mag pouches. Personally, I've taken to putting two mags in the center, and then placing the rest on my left. I do this because I always reload with my left hand and having to cross across my chest rig to grab mags is much slower.
It also allows me to keep a clear (ish) right side, making it easier for me to draw my secondary, since nothing interferes with it coming out and up.
This pic was from a sci-fi convention last weekend, so I slapped on my admin pouch and Resident Evil patches. I am on the left. My hat is on backwards because I was taking photos and the cap's brim interfered with my camera's viewfinder.
You can see that my mag pouches are on the left side, except for two mags in the middle and my handgun mag (and asthma inhaler) on the right side.
This is from a game a few weeks ago. You can see I don't run my admin pouch at games. I use a grenade pouch for my tornado, again mounted on the left side so that I can use my reaction hand to get to it.
Sold my CIRAS, lol.
Ordered this instead ;)

I was hesitant to commit to a rig I could use for whatever occasion. It was either the HSGI Warlord, Eagle Industries RRV, or the Eagle Industries Plate Carrier. The selling feature: EI doesn't come in CADPAT. I was also worried about the quality of the straps and harness but when I got one in my hands I realized how well put together it was. It also has a lifetime warranty so i'm happy about that. I intend to break it at least once in the future.
I was gonna buy the static version to save money on mag pouches, but that would mean I couldn't have 100% modularity. I'm really glad I went with the V4 instead of the V3. I can still carry the basic 10 mag loadout (9 mags in the pouches, 1 in the weapon) and have my frags right where I need them on my dominant side.
The admin panel isn't really all that great. It's cool and handy and all but sometimes a pain in the ass. The zipper is a bitch to do up sometimes. Its good for its intended purpose. You don't have to worry about your shit getting scattered all over the place with the stow away compartments inside.
The inside of the rig is pretty cool too. The zippers on the sides zip open and the entire inner portion of the vest is hollow. Other than plates, you can put whatever you want in there. Stuff that you wouldn't put in your modular pouches. You could prolly even put a foam insert in it to save your ribs from bruising in the prone position.
To sum it up, I like it. I have the hydration panel but to me it's useless. Not secure enough to the rig for my liking. I'd rather roll with my EI 3-Day Pack.
After though: The mag pouches didn't come with the velcro. I put that on myself and sewed a velcro strip on the top row of PALS webbing for my nametape.
