Vest pouches

Recommended Posts

Running a Flyye Spartan Assault Vest and recently bought a single point sling, triple bungee pouch and 2 triples (Thankyou UKtactical). also have a 2 mag pistol pouch. Sounds all well and good in terms of ammo, but feel like im still missing a few essentials. Anyone got recommendations?

 

Pictures for reference :) and the rear is completely bare, so plenty of molle space :)

Pop a dump pouch somewhere on the back towards the bottom if you don't have one on a belt already. Also might be worth adding a hydration pouch on the back, especially if you play longer games.

On the front of my PC is

 

5 elastic quick pouches

Serpa holster

admin pouch with notebook, pencil & camera

dump pouch

 

On the back

 

Small utility pouch

radio pouch

original admin pouch for 'strike to light flash bangs'

2 fast mag pouches

 

My radio headset is intergrated into the PC but now the warm weather is upon us again then I'll get a small hydration pouch then jiggle everything round again

Well my standard games go on from bout 9 till 12, then 12:45 till 4 on an outdoor woodland field. and the vest is quite hefty, yes, but i am abit of a bulky person (by fat standards, lol) and the vest has served me well considering its a high-end vest.

Although, i did bring the same vest to a cqb game and borrowed my bros pouches, plus an extra one for a external torch, which did serve me well to confuse the enemy, so im thinking a general medium/large pouch might help hold the other bits n pieces i might need.

And carrying what i only need will help in rare occassions, as the more pouches i have the more variety and suitability to field and situation. It'd be funny to be the only guy with nothing but grenade pouches lining his vest xD

Saying that, given more thought on it, as well as your input, i've dumbed it down to a small list of what i MIGHT need. again, input would be helpful.

Hydration carrier
radio pouch
general/utility pouch (to hold phone and wallet, maybe)

2/3 grenade pouches (Though i did, somehow bounce a smoke back into my own trench; dont ask)
Admin pouch.

Never made that mistake again

 

End of the day, make what fits you & your needs mate

I was speaking to some guy who was kitted out with all sorts of pouches and carrying all sorts of stuff. He said he was like a mobile quartermaster as he ended up carrying all his friends stuff as well. So they're all off running around light and free and he was left lumbering around like a pack mule.

I tend to play with nothing much more than a micro chest rig and a dump pouch & holster on my belt. Maybe a speed loader if it's a longer game.

I tried playing with umpteen pouches on an assault vest before, nowhere near as streamlined and light as my Mini MAV.

Well when i first started out i was seriously tempted in buying the SAAV setup, but the pouch dimensions put me off because i had no knowledge if it would fit MP7 mags in their length. Besides that point, it's a £30 vest that has everything you could possibly need at the cost of customisation. Not really my thing but it'd of been a last resort.

I use a viper tac vest has all the pockets I need and is nice and light. Going to swap out to molle belt soon as thats even less restrictive. Not a big fan of plate carriers they look nice but deaden the bb hits too much and I all I want to carry in a game is the minimum kit I need i.e mags,batteries and some tape.

I prefer my plate carrier to my old chest rig from my army days

 

With the PC, all the pouches are specific plus I can add & take away pouches depending on what the game day is likely to be

I use a MkII Osprey and it has a large front and rear storage compartment.

I too carry a tonne of BB's, Water, mate's phones, their empty mags, spare gloves, speedloaders, kitchen sink. You get the idea

I have one myself, but in DDPM colour; kinda stands out in the middle of a woodland match, but given the chance, i'd use it :) their comfy and have plenty of space.

After getting baked like a potato I went from a PC to a battle belt and my kit will be at maximum load: 1 Triple Mag pouch set,1 Admin pouch, 1 radio pouch, 1 Dump Bag on my belt and either a water bottle or hydration pack. I have never needed any of the extra capacity I had on my PC.
