I am working on getting 5 setups so I can equip anyone who joins me during shtf mostly family though

Nice set ups. Reminds me I really, REALLY need to start going through my hoarding to see what pouches and etc can be used. I have piles of stuff... ugh!

So by the patch on your equipment... your last name is SMITH?!

Did I get that correctly?

How did you know?

Looks like a good setup! Glad you're gearing for others as well. My only question... only 15 mags?! I hope they're 30-rounders! Just kidding. What is the total weight (loaded and with water, etc.) of the setup?

The full ds condor load out is pushing 60 fully loaded with ammo and water, the old school lbe is pushing 40 total with smokeless and water including the day pack. I do runs in the condor set up once a week weather permitting. It's not that bad and easy to get used to.
15 mags is a nice round number that I learnt is a nice thing to have after my first fire fight I was in and I was carrying 7 went black on ammo was a scary day. If it had just been me and a team that would have been 1/5 of the fire power gone and could've cost us our lives. Thank got it was a a squad plus and there was plenty of ammo to go around. Shtf the biggest element I will be traveling in is a team so I pack a lot ammo just so I don't relive that day with a different outcome

3 out of 4 who get shot in them like them,,,lol

Nice setup/s, I'm breaking in a Condor crossdraw vest at the moment, and it is getting more comfortable all the time. I can only carry 6 mags though, three 10/30 blocked AR and three pistol mag as well as one in the pistol (.45ACP or 9mm). I also have a flashlight and knife as well as a 60" X 90" emergency blanket/tarp and currently a box of 50 .45ACP. Weighs in right at 10 pounds. If I carry the SU16 that gives me another 30 to 60 rounds of on board .223 at another 6-7 pounds. Add a backpack full of dehydrated food and other gear and some water, and I'm as good to go as I'll ever be. Hoping it never comes to that, but plan for the worst and hope for the best.

The Dragon skin cons are its heavy and expensive
the pro's it offers the most protection per pound and the weight is very well distributed.
I like it I train in it. If I didn't use it for work I would probably just have a plate carrier though just due to price

That first pic gives me nightmares. Never a fan of the LBV.

Lol yeah but used both in the army and I prefer it for a light weight/recon rig.

BlasphemousBill 02-17-2014 04:05 PM

You like it better than LCE? I have to say, the FLC is a pretty good improvement. I never used it until the last year (the Army is going back to uniformity) but it's comfortable and uses MOLLE. The only thing I don't like is that some of the straps are sewn in such as way that those little metal buckles can wear through and render the whole thing unusable.

I met very few people in the infantry who use the flc I know I never did even when I first got it. I prefer keeping my load low on my hips. It's a necessity when you carry so much weight. I also like the lbv over just a plain lbe due to the ability to put my but back between my shoulder blades and push my canteens together in the back. I like Molle don't get me wrong but that lbv setup cost me 30 bucks at surplus stores near campbell. You can't build a setup as rugged as the lbv in Molle for that cheap

infntryman86 02-18-2014 05:44 PM

Plus the lbv looks great with my xm177

Doc_Shane 02-18-2014 05:52 PM

I run very similar rigs, each has it's advantages depending upon what I am trying to do.

TheExtreme 02-18-2014 06:00 PM

This is what I "rocked" when I served. Full load out was about 8 pounds. :)

Thanks for serving and for the thread.

Did the military ever approve the Dragon skin? Last I heard they did not.

Are you expecting to fight your way to a location, or defend a location from heavy enemy assault?

Defend my location and perform regular presence and recon patrols. Same planning as uses when I was over seas. My patrols will be dismounted and mounted depending on fuel and length of the shtf

They only didn't approve it because of the fact the ceo of point blank did the testing not exactly comprehensive. I spoke to the guys at pinnacle about it.
