Basically what I'm looking for is something to hold four mag pouches in the front, a large flat dump pouch on the left side or back, and this pistol holster on the right side.

No, I ran 4 mags in the front for over a year, and I don't think it's necessary to run other things. If I were going to a milsim where I had to carry all my ammo and stuff with me, I would bring a backpack.

That Ten Speed is interesting. Watched some videos on it, but I think I'm pretty set on the WSH. Suits my needs and works with a variety of mag types. My new gun is a SIG 552, and the SIG mags are a bit bigger than the M16 mags (I think).

what does anyone think of the tectac plate carrier coming out this fall by 5.11? i think it looks good and at 199 its gonna be seriously competing with the banshee. if you look at the 2013 shot show footage it has some really nice features.i currently run a condor plate carrier and i find it cheap and poorly designed.

I bought a Flyye 6094 and I'm loving it. Best PC I've ever worn. The JPC is a very close second in my opinion as well

I personally run the WSH, and I love it.

It's versatile without being overly constrictive, easy to adjust, plenty of MOLLE estate, and comes with built-in multipurpose pouches. I can fit about 2 mags into each, and if I recall correctly, there's 7 of them, so 14 STANAG Mags are good to go right off the bat.

I usually use one slot for a radio, and a couple others for general other stuff, and it's a really good rig. Holds plates, too, if that's your thing.

For chest rigs the TT mav is probably the best bang for the buck. Well made , not complicated and readily available.
Im kind of partial to my Patriot Performance Materials Patroller Chest rig(previously Tactical Assault Systems) , its similar to a 2 piece mav with an extra row of pals and velcro on the top of the rig for name tape/flags. It comes in slightly cheaper aswell but alot harder to find.

Plate carriers with mag capacity I would say the HSGI Woo/wee/wasatch's are really good for the price. HSGI build quality is fantastic and the price on these is excellet.
I currently own an Sotech Callahan and although it is very good there are some design features that could have been better.
Plate carriers with no mag capacity , the TT carrier is great , good amount of pals channels and good price. TT's typical build quality aswell.

For Loadbearing belt/harness its kind of tough to recommend one as most of the good ones have been discountinued.
Iam currently using a Voodoo Tactical sniper belt and although the price is great the quality is only ok. Quality is on par with condor I would say.
That being said I used to own a SORD patrol belt order and although the quality was very good you had to use SORD specific pouches to set it up to its full potential.
First Spear (some of eagles designers) have a really good looking setup right now but the price is pretty high for a belt/suspenders setup.
Older pieces that are good (and harder to find) are the Spears ELCS (base rig , is similar to the FLC) , the LBT loadbearing setup (cant remember its name) and the BlackHawk Strike LBE which is similar to the LBT setup.

The FLC vest is cheap and three camo are available
Woodland, DCU, and UCP.

I preferred the TAP (Eagle's Tactial Assault Panel) can be fitted on IOTV, TAC-1 or other body armor so that your pouches are not attached to the body armor yet it doesn't increase the number of straps over your shoulder).

Cp gear...tactical tailor

I wear a CADPAT MOFCR from CP GEAR. Excellent vest with manueverability and provides easily access to pouches. I use this in a FIBUA (CQB) and Field enviroment. I have recently added a battlebelt feature to this vest which makes me self sufficient for a 24 to 48 hour stay in whatever enviroment I am fighting in.

The adjustable straps allow you adjust the vest for a comfortable fit.

I also have an Arid Tactical Tailor vest which is designed a little different then MOFCR but is lighter. Gives easy access to pouches.

Both vests are comfortable and molle which allows pouches to be added and removed. I love the the out side panel of the MOFCR which is on both sides of the vest. It is a good spot to store a pistol and gives easy access. By unzipping the panel I can have my pistol out in seconds as oppose to a holster (no loss mags either)...the other panel is used to store maps and admin book etc.

I have been running a specter chest carrier for a bit now and I really like it.


It is light and cool thanks to there being no plate on your back.


I run 4 fastmags, a lightning dump pouch and a utility pouch with my radio on the molle yoke. It serves me well.

Meh. As an owner of a Vietnam Era CPLA SKS Chest Rig, I can say that even though it's awesome just because it's PLA Surplus, it's not that 'modifiable'.

Static pouches, barely any adjustment in the straps, not to mention an unconventional and, frankly, quite uncomfortable way of wearing it don't really make it a very good vest to begin with. The fabric is really sturdy, but with bamboo buttons and needing to tie two straps behind your back to put it on, I can't see it being practical in a modern field.

The other two are decce, but more modern stuff is better, IMHO.
