This is my OTV I built from the ground up from parts I found on ebay and at local gunshows. The multicam cover is airsoft but it's within spec and I was able to put the standard USGI OTV kevlar inserts in it without issue. I then acquired a set of Dyneema plates (level III) made in Israel. The plates weigh half as much as ceramic plates currently in issue. In fact they are so light they float in water. I also had the neck/yoke assembly custom converted to multicam by (bulletproofme.com). I then put titanium inserts in some of the weak areas. I have HSGI mag pouches in Multicam. Thats about it....

USGI LBV, fitted with some surplus pouches (ALICE and M56) on the belt to maximise carrying capacity. Surprisingly efficient and easy to use, even for something so old.
And, you know, looks totally badass.
I dunno if the 1911 mag pouches on the left shoulder are the best place, but it seems to work.

Second Chance OTV, with USGI SDS pouches. No ballistic inserts ATM, maybe when I can afford to eat something other than cup ramen.

I also have a bare-bones set of ALICE webbing at my other home, along with a set of Italian army ALICE webbing. I like to collect web gear, so I think I'll get a set of Brit PLCE or '58 pattern webbing next.

Tactical Tailor Modular Assault Vest with an X-Harness with 3 HSGI 2XR TACO pouches. The single pistol magazine clip on is going to be replaced with a 2-3 cell pistol mag pouch, it works for now though. I carry the G17 in a Serpa belt holster that isn't pictured. I've been meaning to get a leg rig for the pistol and an admin pouch. I've thought about adding a pistol rig to the TT-MAV but it seems like it would be awkward to draw.

The mags are range mags, hence the yellow tape. Makes them easier to spot when I drop them on reloads. That reminds me that I need a dump pouch as well.

When I didn't have to wear an IBA or IOTV I loved my riflemens vest. Pretty standard lay out. From left to right, IFAK, two double mag pouches, 3 singles, and an empty canteen pouch. For various things.

It may not be super HSLD, but it's functional and comfortable.

Eagle ACOG pouch, houses my gloves and other misc. shit

Thinking of picking up a PIGBRIG and an AO small chest rig, along with maybe a battle belt eventually. I like the idea of being able to run my armor under everything else, being able to stow my chest rig/belt and still retain at least some protection.

Pretty simple rig, mostly just a thingy to hold magazines for me for classes and competitions. It is the tactical tailor split front MAV. I've got 4 1x AR-15 magazine pouches, one double pistol mag pouch with the magnets in it, an egl dump pouch that rolls up tiny, and also a little zipper pouch on the front. I am currently waiting for SKDtac to get the tactical tailor x-harness in stock again to improve comfort.

This is a picture of my Saiga 12 double mag pouch. Since nobody out there makes them worth a shit, I had to make my own. (the vestguy.com) makes them. I bought them and they suck almost as much as he does. So I have some HSGI mag pouches, and I figured since I like them so much, I would make some. Except big as fuck enough to fit not one but 2 Saiga 12 mags in. So here is my first one I have made so far.

Paraclete frag pouch

Issued double 40mm pouch
Eagle Industries M60/SAW pouch

Worn with the ATS war belt setup I've posted around here somewhere, going to pick up a standalone camelback w/ a small pouch on it to go with it for hydration/sustainment.

I'm using the center inner pocket of the RACK as a map pouch, going to try and find a way to paracord a smaller pouch in there to hold other admin stuff too.

S.O. Tech Callahan.

Used to have one years ago, but foolishly sold it. Saw one for pretty damn cheap, and had to pick it up. Basically one of the earlier plate carriers with the removable chest rig attached to it, not as good a design as the newer ones since it attaches via malice clips as opposed to fastex buckles, but still a great rig.

Got bored, tossed my AR mags in my AK rig just to see how they would fit. Interestingly enough, they fit pretty well. They sink down a little more than they would in an AR mag pouch, but they don't fall out and they're easy enough to get out. Nice temporary solution until I get my AO small...

Yeah, I was just throwing them in out of pure curiosity. I was thinking of getting some magpuls, and back in the day, guys got issued ALICE M16 mag pouches, for 30rnd mags, of course the 20rnd mags slid right down in, so the old trick was to throw an extra pair of socks in the bottom to keep the mags raised up. I'll probably do that, but again, it was just me playing around and I'm gonna get an AO small real soon.

HSGI Warlord V-3 Bravo 8 loaded pmags, IFAK kit on the left side, general shit/canteen in the right pouch. They are nice in that they can be cinch down small but open up to hold a canteen and than some.

Blouse is crye's field and bottom is tru-spec OD green pants slightly faded.

not picture is my Lowa Zephyr GTX mid-length in olive.
gloves are either some shitty wiley x's tacticool or the issued crap. hard to find decent gloves that are comfortable for my paws.

I certainly hope you aren't serious with that rig.
That looks ridiculous, also it's too low, prepare to be fucked with while running.

Ahem.... Where's your photo?

This depends entirely what you mean by Serious. I'm not a high-speed-low-drag operator. I shoot for fun. One of my fun runs is a monthly carbine match I was recently introduced to. It's not run by any national organization. It isn't USPSA. It's Randy's (the match director) version of the world, once a month.

The general rules stay the same, but the specifics can get moved around quite a bit. He has a very specific outlook on the world... very tactical. I'm a USPSA gunner at heart. I want to run fast and pull the trigger - fuck finding cover and retaining my reloads.

The people who actually show up at this competition run the gamut from middle-aged computer nerd ( http://www.operatorchan.org/k/src/133931422860.jpg ), to Airsoft Tacticard ( http://www.operatorchan.org/k/src/133937469232.jpg ), to Sergeant Major ( http://www.operatorchan.org/k/src/133931329343.jpg ). And yes... he seems legit. And he wears Sergeant Major insignias.

I ran the match last time with 2 spare mags stuffed in the back pockets of my jeans. There's not a whole lot of running involved... certainly not more than 100ys under actual time. Remember I mentioned "Randy's Rules"? He's pissed about blackhawk down. So pissed that he wants us to retain magazines. That's his cited reason, anyway. My back pockets are not conducive to retaining my magazines.

I went out and found a basic platform that I could mount a few mags (only gonna pack 3, not 6), and a dump pouch (yay retention) on. As a plus, it puts my reloads about where I expect them from USPSA. A little lower, but I've got that buckle cinched up tighter than in the photo. I've run around in it a bit... it's more comfortable than some vests I've used.

Am I entirely serious? No. I don't thing anyone could mount a machete like that, and be entirely serious. I enjoy tweaking people who take these games too seriously, see? Randy has a thing with knives. I've been warned he will occasionally set a stage where you must "fight your way to your gun" using only the knife on your gear. He starts many matches with a knife check, making sure people are carrying. People have these $$$$$ Benchmade Fixed Blades, and Gerber FLM-IIs, and other huge pieces of expensive steel strapped to their $$$ super-tac molle vests... Well, fuck that. I have a $5 machete and some mags on a leg platform. And I still have a damned good time. So, no. I'm not serious about it. But yes, I AM serious about it. See?

Basically what PJ is saying is, you have the rig extended too far down your thigh, it looks like it's sitting somewhere around your knee.

Ideally you should have it sitting so god damn high that the horizontal straps are touching your balls. That might mean modifying that vertical strap, taking that buckle off and having that tiny portion of strap go around your belt.

This will have it sit higher up, make the mags easier to grab and have the weight closer to your centre of gravity which will stop it flopping around as much when you run, keeping you at speed and your gear from tearing itself apart.

Here's a picture I made a while ago in regards to thigh holsters, but it applies to any sub-loads.

Nothing much to brag about.

The vest is a TAG Banshee. Nothing too great about it, except for it's size for me. I don't like it much. I'm trying to get a AI FSBEII MBSS soon enough.

"Not terrible and very good for the $. I picked up one for some old plates. The Mayflower apc and skd pig have better straps and are better thought out but much more $."

Yeah, I can agree on that with you. I do like the fact that TAG's gear, although not the GREATest quality, It's still US Made gear.
So, you do have some pluses in getting TAG gear, But I'm trying to get avoid it now. Reason being is mainly for the reason I like EI, AI, LBT, etc.. Gear companies like that.

and last I have a basic steel pot with netting on it. I plan to get a good German Kevlar helmet from a friend still in service. Also have the tacti-cool hat and bala there. The googles are just for riding my ATV. The trails get rather dusty.
