I'm looking to upgrade my worn out kit and was wondering if it was possible to run everything essential for skirmishing/day sims on just a battle belt? Before you call me nuts; hear me out... I enjoy running light, my current kit is as bare bones as it gets, a basic belt rig with accomidations for only the most basic of implements (4x magazines, utility pouches and a dump pouch) It holds all I need, even for day play, with that and a backpack. Secondly, I'm tall. I've given friends PC's test runs in skirmish and they all seem incredibly awkward (as well as small or fat). Grabbing at my nipples to pull velcro straps is counterproductive in the heat of battle. A battle belt seems to sit at that right hight for me to swoop up with my hand and slap that mag in. Thirdly, that price. Even a craptacular condor vest costs easily 100$ and in Canada, that number can easily double. Not even including plate carriers made by reputable service brands (5.11, Emerson, etc) Whilst your cheap old first line can be as low as 20$. All I'm looking to put on it is as follows (Something accomidating 6x AR mags, a large utility pouch, dump pouch, ER pouch and a radio pouch) So what do you think, could this work or am I not "milsim enough, bruh?" Also, new to the forum, so if this deserves a plant in another section, by all rights, tell me. All imput is apreciated!
Hello Everyone. I thought I'de post this because I wanted to see if my thoughts were actually possible and were used by others before. I run a belt through my BDU pants and every time I go to a game, I have to loop my dump pouch, holster, and other pouches before actually wearing my belt. Because I play at many desert type games, I have to wash my pants every time so I spend about an hour or so after a day at the field removing the belt and then washing the pants. Because my belt loop is pretty tight around the belt, I have a hard time having to remove then un-looping the belt and attachments. I thought of something that might solve the problem, but I want to know from you guys to see if it is a good idea or dumb idea and if you've used it before. I was thinking of getting a normal belt around my pants, but getting my combat belt over the belt with my attachments, so that every time I get out of a game, I can just remove the combat belt and easily wash the pants. Hopefully you can provide me with an answer and maybe some pros and cons. Thanks!
