Geared Up! (Miscellaneous Gear Photos)


Wanted to start a catch all thread for gear photos.

Built the plate carrier and belt with training and emergency situations in mind, I know black is out of fashion at the moment, but I live in a fairly developed area. In the hopefully unlikely event of me needing to use this gear; Its not like I’m gonna ghost into the woods when I’m worried about defending my family and property. Not disparaging people who love their cammies, but I just don’t think it would be that beneficial to my situation. Might switch to a Coyote Tan or Foliage Green eventually.

*not gonna be lugging around 3 guns in any foreseeable situation, was cleaning my KSG and my AR so they both made it into the shot.


Here’s my run and gun gear setup. I’ve carried this setup over multiple run and guns and it has served me very well.


What belt rig are you running here? I’m in the market and this looks low profile enough for what I want.


I actually wouldn’t run the belt in the photo. It was my first belt that I got, just a pretty cheap one. Don’t even remember the name.

I ran my Volund Gearworks belt for a while and it is awesome:

I’m currently running the DSG competition belt and it kicks ass:




Did this just die off because no one was interested?

These, or something very close to it… run with me everywhere.




No, there is a bunch a gear threads that jf89 started. You just have to find them.


I’m not much of a Black Friday or Cyber Monday kinda guy, but it just so happened that on Monday, I decided to buy a new gun case :slight_smile:

I picked this up awhile back also, but haven’t actually used it yet…

I was most excited about the $9 tackle box I got on clearance so I could organize all the little pieces hanging out in my desk drawer lol…




@switchpod, what’s your set up there? Looks heavy!

That is a fantastic idea that I will be doing!


The plate carrier is a Warrior Assault Systems DCS. NTOA certified.
Spartan armor level 3, 10”x12” front, and rear plates. 6”x8” side plates.

Standard issue IFAK, added items hemostat, alcohol wipes, bandaids, 2 kats tourniquets, 1 RATS tourniquet, razor.

Holster is a Blackhawk level 3 serpa, with strike speed clip.

Knife is a Eickhorn KM2000. Streamlight por-tac HL, Baofang UV-5R radio, multi-tool.

Carrier holds 6 magazines with XM855 loaded.

The carrier with load weights 38.4 lbs. it’s not that bad as long as your going for 4 hours. After that it up to your own mental resilience.


My setup as of 2018, still some things that I want to change, but the Spiritus Systems LV-119 is very nice. I hike and run with the carrier slicked down 2 to 3 times a week. Very stable and comfortable at least for my body type (pretty average height and build). NAR IFAK in the sack pouch under the carrier and supplemental CAT tourniquets on my beltline and on body.


If I needed to cover ground quickly I would throw this on.

ABA Kevlar with an added level 3A plate.

For the load I would use the SOE mookie war rig light.

8 mags, electric tape. Compass, map, 2Qt water bladder. This is a much lighter setup and still offers some protection.


What I have with me

So I have 360 rounds loaded, spare mag for my side arm, blade, smoke, dump bag, med kit, all able to go over heavy clothing. It is 11° F today… so… clothing… and some spare… hahahhahaa
Ammo is actually not 360, though it is with my rifle. I load my mags to 28 / 29 usually staggered with green tip and HP


I want to buy that just for the tag :slight_smile:


here it was at work today… :grin:


I have to admit, that is an epic tag. Hahhahahah :heart_eyes::+1::us::us::us::us::us:
