Trying to get ideas for how to outfit my belt. I really don't want to be digging into my pack after every stage for things like mags or my kestrel but I haven't figured out a good way to set everything up yet.
Thanks for the info Rob01. Do you have a med-kit on you or in you pack? I'm a fire fighter as well and I've always felt it important to keep one close but not sure I need it on my person when we're normally 10 feet from out packs.This is my belt set up. Three rifle mag pouches on right and one on left front which gets changed to pistol mags if the match requires. Left side pouch carries data cards and other reference material, pens and pad and anything else I might need on me. Rear is a small allen kit and screwdriver and again whatever I want to put there. I can usually run a few stages if needed without going back to pack. Been running this set up since around 2010 I believe.
Like the look of this Sunrise pouches...My belt is more setup for team/RTC field matches but I have an HSGI battle belt with suspenders. On the left hand side from front to rear I have a Sord kestrel pouch followed by 2x Sunrise tactical AICS mag pouches. On the mag pouch closest to the front I have a BFG double pistol mag pouch that sits totally flat when not in use. On the right hand side I have a G-Code battle belt adapter for RTI for my holster when we need pistols and behind it have a Sord LRF pouch. Been meaning to throw a dump pouch in the back since I've noticed that when I'm wearing rain gear, I don't have an easy place to dump my brass after the stage.
Can't say since I've ever used Kydex mag pouches or the TekLok system. I believe Bison Tactical sells TekLok Kydex mag pouches for the AICS mags.Is there a good Kydek and TekLok solution for AICS magazines?
Or do I get eliminated for not using a battle belt?
Yep, I now have Long's Shadow Holsters for AICS, AW, Desert Tech & Sako:Can't say since I've ever used Kydex mag pouches or the TekLok system. I believe Bison Tactical sells TekLok Kydex mag pouches for the AICS mags.
After playing with my previously posted belt system. I'm making some more changes. The Triad mag pouch is a bit slow. Plus I wanted something set up for team/field matches. I put the HSGI pogey pouch inside my pack. Added a pistol holster to the right side in it's place. Moved the bleeder pouch to the pack as well. Going to replace it with HSGI pistol pouches.
