Which do you guys prefer? I have a viper molle set up, just sits perfect around my waist, four mag pouches, a bits pouch and a large pouch on the bag, i use a dump pouch for my empty mags and a holster around my thigh for my pistol.

I have a molle belt and left side drop leg molle base. I don't carry much so no real need for a rig. Plus I don't like weight up top if possible. I don't know why but the same weight placed round my waists and thighs feels lighter then when on my chest. Plus I overheat too easily when wearing a vest/rig

ive changed over the years.

Started with a Viper assault vest. because it was cheap and had what i needed

Then moved onto a warrior plate carrier because all the molle and it looked cool. but got pissed on not feeling hits and it just bee too bulky.

Now its just a chest rig ghetto mounted to a hydration pack. I like the light weight and freedom to move. although I no longer use a dump pouch as I always end up dropping my mags any way very bad habbit I might add. thank god for the £40 multi packs.

You are aware MOLLE and Chest rig are not two directly comparable things?

 

MOLLE or PALS is a type of attachment system for rigs be they belts, chest rigs or plate carriers, like ALICE and PLCE


while a chest rig is a type of load bearing rig which can be MOLLE or not

I just dont like anything on my chest, prefer it around my waist, more freedom in my movement!!

I started off with a Condor Crossdraw assault vest I bought for £10 off a mate. that was quite restricting and there was no front-mounte MOLLE on it.

So now I keep a MOLLE micro-size chest rig and a holster on a belt. It's all very lightweight so I can continue in my attack-objectives-as-fast-as-I-can playstyle.
