Default Advice on Mag Vest or other LBE



Advertise Here

I would like to get a good vest or molle chest to hang some mags on for shooting in the field. I have a good range bag but it is not practical for carrying in the field.

Can anyone help direct me to some good sites to find a well made piece of gear.

Also, any opinions about the best configuration for shooting would be appreciated. I will be training on use of my AR-15 with 30 round mags.

So far I like the idea of a light weight, lose fitting suspender type rig. But I am ignorant to what all is available.

Thanks in advance.

The FLC is a good choice

FLC

Or you could go with a LBV. Just make sure the LBV includes the belt.

LBV

I own both, but I like the fit and adjustability of the LBV the best.

I've had both these, and there are designed for wearing over IBA or a body armor. I would go with a plate carrier with MOLLE or a modular assault vest
http://www.tacticaltailor.com/mavvestbody2piece.aspx ( As an example )

A FLC And LBV are a lot more confining to me, a MAV is a lot more user friendly in how you wear it and you can shead it a lot quicker, try taking off a LBV when your laying down. A MAV is just 3 quick releases and it stays there. You can put anything on a MAV that will go on a LBV but maybe not as much, but that dosn't sound like your wanting much more than a ammo carrier.

I've been looking at a site called

http://www.03designgroup.com/

The author reviews items he uses in his field. He designed a chest harness that I'm looking into.

http://www.03designgroup.com/reviews...-chest-harness

It's about as minimal as you can get with a nice pouch fro a camelback and a spot to velcro ID or other tags you'd want to carry. I think it hold 4x30 round mags.

Check out 762tactical. Super nice chest rigs, made here in the USA, and very affordable.

The over armor MOLLE vest from Spec Ops works great!
