Tank Placement

Recommended Posts

hi guys,  I'm new to the HPA side of things and have a question.  I'm a fat old tub of lard,  I have a TM MTR16 running HPA,  how do you guys carry your tanks? I'm using a condor recon chest rig as its one of the few things that fits me,  so would like some advice as to the best options for the tank.  As I own a chest rig there is no back to it...

i use the back pouch on the smersh, it's literally the perfect thing for it.

 

however i've seen folk gut hydration bladder backpacks and run their tanks in them, might work a bit better for your setup.

I am open to getting a different set up,  but it needs to be big... like 60" big

What cylinder are you using and do you have air fills on site?

 

A 13ci 3000psi cylinder is easier than a 48ci cylinder to accommodate on a vest etc

The part about site fills was just whether you’d need convincing to go to a 13ci from a 48ci, or if you didn’t have site fills and needed extra air etc

 

I can’t think back for certain - but a MOLLE MP5 pouch should fit a 13ci, and would fit one column of MOLLE.  I’ve used them for paintball pods, which is tight at first, and I’m sure I’ve put my 13ci in one before.

(I prefer to lose the remote line and use the bottle on the gun to avoid tangling etc)


There’s also the option to make a skeleton strap bottle holder for a 13ci.

Two or three horizontal strap loops and one vertical strap to secure it
