Question Favorite Vest?

Please include brand name and model number.

In the market for a new vest, and I'm looking for educated opinions. I've owned a few in the past. Some clunky surplus thing, a made in China CADPAT RRV, and a Multicam CIRAS. I found the chest panel on the RRV to be a bit high on my chest, and it hit my neck when I crouched down. The CIRAS was too much vest for airsoft, considering there is no need for strike plates, and I found the adjustments to be excessively complex; requiring the whole vest to be opened up just to make a small adjustment.

What do you guys think?

I run the multicam CIRAS (not sure which brand.. 0_o), great, comfy carrier as I don't use it with plates. Adjusting is a bitch though. Still think it's a great vest in my own opinion.

Tasmanian Tiger chest rig mk II. I've had this one for a couple of years now and love it. It's light with tonnes of real estate. It can easily fit 8 pmags in the mag pockets, the upper flap can fold down and it has an inner pocket for a plate or sidearm. The side pouches fit my tools and refreshments perfectly.

I bit the bullet and went to an all molle (vest+belt) platform. It wasn't cheap but the customization makes me smile all the time.

Vest, plate carrier, chest rig, or belt kit?

Sup Dan? Anything really. Kinda leaning to the conservative end of the spectrum.

When I ran a chest rig (I use a 249 or RPK alternately now) this was my favourite:

Simple, and fairly lightweight.

I dont know why no one suggests this but if you want simple, go with a FLC. theyre cheap but theyre good. theyre not L33T and high speed and shit but they are moddest and effective.

I went the other way though and got me a SORD plate hanger. a triple mag pouch by eagle and a canteen with a kangaroo hydration on the back and thats it. May add more to it though.

HSGI Warlord. I have had the V2 and V4. I prefer modularity, so I have stuck with the V4.

I had a Denali years ago that had the extraneous frag and 40MM pouches removed. Loved that rig.

A Warlord lathered in Tacos is the ultimate. Took me quite a while to gather up all of them.

Ditto to this. I absolutely love my TT MK II chest rig. It is close to perfect for the way I like to run my gear not to mention it is affordable for what you are getting. Two other similar rigs that I really like are the BDS Tactical V-OPS rig and the HSGI Weesatch.

The Cool thing about ordering a rig from BDS is that you can customize them and pick the exact options you want in the configuration you want.

There are also quite a few plate carriers that have come onto the market that I really like the looks of. My favorite being the Crye JPC and the new Crye Adaptive vest system.
