That's more or less the way mine is without the camel back and butt pouch and I have it set up to use only if the SHTF. I would not wear mine otherwise as well.I bought a tacticool MOLLE vest that has a six mag pouch for my AR-15, 3 mag pouch and holster for my pistol, pouches for a flashlight & leatherman (converted mag pouches), a camelbak, and a butt pouch with a basic first aid kit, airman's straw, space blanket, basic gun cleaning kit, map of the local area, basic fire starting kit, and some food & a spoon.
I need to add a mag drop pouch.
I bought this early on when I started preparing, and I take it with me when I go shooting in the desert. I consider it a part of my BOB, but wouldn't wear it openly unless SHTF big time.
Well, depends on if you want to blend. I usually just stick to coyote brown or foliage green.What color would be best in gear including a vest? Does it matter
Send me a PM if you are interested in possibly selling one.I have two tac vests, however they really aren't part of my preps at all. In fact, I should sell them (both are Blackhawk vests), but both sit in a plastic foot locker in my garage as part of some of my deployment momentos.
Wearing a tac vest just isn't in my SHTF plan.
I don't even own an M4, which is what both are set up for.
