"Battle Belt" And Overall Tiered Gear Rethinking 2013

Post by Admin on Sun Sep 15, 2013 5:34 am

2013 2013 2013 <div dir="ltr" style="text-align: left;" trbidi="on"><a href="http://maxvelocitytactical.blogspot.com/2013/09/gear-philosophy-update.html">Max Velocity's Gear Philosophy Update</a> got me thinking. First it rekindled last year's <a href="http://www.blogger.com/chest%20rigs,%20gear,%20gear%20porn,%20holsters,%20Level%201,%20MOLLE,%20survival%20kit,%20warbelt,%20Zombie%20Squad%207%20comments:">battle belt/ war belt </a>train of thought. It got me to thinking. The idea of a more modular setup appealed to me. Being able to have a decent setup that can work for home invasions, a Katrina like event, training or as a base for a more substantial setup would be nice. <br /><br />I used a system similar (a TT rig that was&nbsp; probably not stiff enough) to a battle belt long ago and found it unnecessarily cumbersome. Granted gear has moved a long way in almost a decade but a big padded belt is still a big padded belt. Without being able to fiddle with one I am concerned the same issues will pop up.<br /><br />One option I previously considered was just doing it on a rigger belt. The downside of this plan is that your gear does not stay securely in place. <a href="http://www.ravenconcealment.com/moduloader-frames-modular-base">Some systems</a> have come along recently that let you retain PALS type gear on standard belts. I fear the cost of that option would get silly fast and it adds another variable to go wrong. So I did some more looking. There are some PALS compatible single row belts out there. <a href="http://www.skdtac.com/Emdom-MM-CM-Belt-p/e2m.105.htm">This one from SKD seems nice</a>. Others are available from quality makers. Has anyone done a battle belt on a belt like that?<br /><br />Then again enough really smart people who actually train with their gear (specifically <a href="http://mountainguerrilla.wordpress.com/">John Mosby</a> and I think <a href="http://maxvelocitytactical.blogspot.com/">Max Velocity</a>) are pro battle belt that there is probably something to the general configuration of a 3 row PALS padded belt. <br /><br />Regardless of the belt I'd basically do the same thing. My plan would be to put on a pair of HSGI double taco's, a compass, flashlight, pistol, knife, plus a small water bottle. I would probably use suspenders for every use except home defense.<br /><br />This got me to having an overall gear setup. Right now my<a href="http://tslrf.blogspot.com/2013/08/bug-out-bag-component-list.html"> BOB/ ruck (Tier 3)</a> is a commercial style hiking backpack. It's integral padded hip belt would not work with a battle belt. The simple solution would be to swap the pack out for an ALICE which is already on inventory. Since it's free that is easy enough. Not as comfortable but it's utilitarian ruggedness has some benefits.<br /><br />So down the rabbit hole of gear reshuffling I went. Thankfully there are some nice tools and pieces of kit already on inventory. That means instead of a huge shopping list it's more about choosing what goes where. So basically I have no immediate plan to fund this trip down the gear porn road or an idea about what exactly the main component is going to be. Honestly I may have just written about it because so much time was wasted thinking on it.<br /><br />Of course input is appreciated. </div><div class="blogger-post-footer"><script type="text/javascript"><!--<br>google_ad_client = "pub-4867339654300878";<br>/* 728x90, created 8/28/08 */<br>google_ad_slot = "3354001287";<br>google_ad_width = 728;<br>google_ad_height = 90;<br>//--><br></script><br><script type="text/javascript"<br>src="http://pagead2.googlesyndication.com/pagead/show_ads.js"><br></script></div><br> 2013 2013 2013 <br><div dir="ltr" style="text-align: left;" trbidi="on"><a href="http://maxvelocitytactical.blogspot.com/2013/09/gear-philosophy-update.html">Max Velocity's Gear Philosophy Update</a> got me thinking.
