Warbelt setups

#41
Coyote brown with D ring, size small (based on some reviews saying they run large).

BTW, I never even received a confirmation email from AWS. The first and only response was from FEDEX.

I've gone through a couple evolutions over the years. I had various belts that were similar to the HSGI sure grip which were great in the flight suit era, but when we switched to Crye, the fact that I had to put it over the belt holding up my pants annoyed me. I went on a search for a decent two belt platform that I liked. This past fall I was looking for a home rig, and going back and forth between the Ronin Tactics senshi belt or the new Gcode. I ended up getting a screaming deal on the new gcode war belt that came with two pistol mag pouches, two rifle mag pouches, a detachable IFAK and a RTI hanger. While I appreciate RTI hanger, I didn't want to use it, as I prefer my holster to have a single strap and a slight drop. I switched it out for a safariland hanger and DO holster. If I'm running this belt, it means I'm not carrying concealed. Which means I'll be wearing combat pants, so I have places for other items, like a folding blade, additional med items, flashlight,maps/admin/cell phone etc.

While this is my personal set up, I experimented with this rig at work along with my plate carrier (which has my 152 pouch, rifle mag pouches, etc) at a range day this past Monday. What I found - it worked great. I threw on a dump pouch between the rifle mag pouch and the IFAK and got to training. If I were to run this full time, I would probably remove a rifle pouch to make room for something else. The hook and loop portion stayed firmly in place, and I never felt the belt shift like I had experienced with a double belt system. Overall, I'm extremely happy with the performance, easy of use, and KISS approach for the belt, and to have it delivered pretty much ready to go is great.

How stiff is that G-code belt? can you compare it to anything like an Ares Gear duty belt or Ranger Belt?

I am not LE, just a prior active duty Infantry and Security Force Marine. This is my training/SHTF/range belt setup. I do not have my holster attached as I am between holsters after changing up my handgun setup. I have a dump pouch that I take on and off as needed, as well as a fixed blade knife in a sheath.

I find the ELS belt to provide a good balance between being a rigid yet flexible base to carry the gear I need. While directly attaching the mag pouches may not be modular for some, I have chosen to at a minimum carry 2 handgun mags and 1 rifle mag and like that they are always in the same position. I have added a Racheting Buckle. I need to invest in a new inner loop Velcro belt as my First Spear belt has given up the ghost.

The Safariland Pistol mag pouches will hold 15-33 round double stack mags, flashlights, or multi tools. The Safariland rifle mag pouch will carry 20-40 round mags and provides adjustable and positive retention without worrying about bungees or flaps.

My Blowout kit holds a Z packed Quick Colt, A SOF-T-W tourniquet and compact double occlusive dressing, the UBL with QLS let’s me swap between holsters and handgun types and setups easily. It is made from a Specter Gear buttstock magazine pouch, and stays attached when I need it to while allowing me to easily remove it with either hand.

The Surefire Flashlight pouch may get replaced in the near future by something that lets me carry bezel down. And I have plenty of left over real estate to add pouches.

Critiques and recommendations appreciated.

VTAC Brokos belt with HSGI inner belt (different than pictured), 2x HSGI Double Decker Tacos, HSGI rolly dump pouch, ITS Fat Boy IFAK (with Gerber pouch attached), holster made locally

ETA: I have a set of Crye suspenders that I thought I'd like using, but they just haven't proven to be as useful as expected.

here is my setup, this is more for two gun then anything and yeah I know the holster sucks but its a pain in the ass to find anything for a CZ much less something with retention so I don't dump the thing crawling around or something

Forgive my ignorance, but they got a Molle compatible system?

I have a Blade Tech with belt loops that I use for USPSA and I got the blade tech Molle-lok system, but I put that on my belt and in my first carbine class I went to draw and one of the two little set screws holding the mounting hardware to the pistol had a ballistic separation.

Not directly from Safariland but you can use Holster extender GRT from S&S. and their MOLLE track

I know they cost sooo much it won't make much sense.
If that is the case you can look into using just the track, and using the Chinese copy of the GRT.
Strength wise Chinese airsoft copy wasn't the problem rather strength was the problem.
So it won't break away from you if things go wrong.

therefore, depending on why you need it you might be able to get away with the chinese copy.
but if you are in a situation where you might be getting tumble dried in MRAP or Helis I would look for another system

Yes. Safariland sells one for $14.
