Attention all gucci whores and gear f@gs.
Right time to make a change. I've been using assault vests for the last while. My current vest Israeli Marom Doplphin tac vest is still a nice bit of kit but does not really suit what I'm doing at the moment as its very role specific.
I've a few quid put aside now and after looking at S&S's gucci thread I've a gear horn. I want to buy something new for the summers fun (cse + camp etc).
In an infantry role how have people found chest rigs? The likes of the http://www.uktactical.com/acatalog/W-901_Delta.html
I've found assault vests great in the past. So looking at buying a MOLLE vest base and getting patches myself. I want to have a look at the protac vest.
I know very little about plate carriers http://www.uktactical.com/acatalog/W..._Carriers.html (obviously I will never be using plates in them!). They appear to be what most modern armies are leaning towards these days. What is the difference between a plate carrier without plates and an assault vest?! As the price difference is huge.
Suitable or an Inf. NCO OG in pattern or Brit DPM at a push. Not mental money.
PS: for the auld shweat bde. I've done my time in 58 ptn. and PLCE. Despite nostalgic pangs, I don't think it stands up. So save the "whats wrong with your issue PLCE" stuff, thank you please.
