Double post much?
OE TECH MOD 0 VEST (with a shitload of pouches reviewed as well. This is a Molle vest on the cheap, It was the first vest I bought for airsofting, and I love it. I will be reviewing ALL the pouches i have on this vest as well. [IMG]http://i290.photobucket.com/albums/ll278/Foosili/P1010033.jpg[/IMG] [b]The Vest:[/b] One of the cool things about this vest is the top pane can fold down to be more of a "High speed, low drag" kind of loadout, It's nice to fold it down when it's very hot out. [IMG]http://i290.photobucket.com/albums/ll278/Foosili/P1010035.jpg[/IMG] [tab]Unfolded.[/tab] [IMG]http://i290.photobucket.com/albums/ll278/Foosili/P1010047.jpg[/IMG] [tab]Folded.[/tab] The vest is made of the standard material, and seems to have held up well so far, but it's nothing special. None of the Molle straps have broken yet, and show no signs of breaking anytime soon. The vest adjusts using straps and buckles, which cross on the back. So far I have been very satisfied with my purchase, I would recommend it to anyone who is starting out and wants a Molle vest. [b]Pouches[/b] [b]OE TECH Admin Pouch[/b] [IMG]http://i290.photobucket.com/albums/ll278/Foosili/P1010036.jpg[/IMG] This is a pretty nice pouch, one of the last ones I bought mostly because I wanted a place to put my Douk-Douk knife and my Allen wrench multi-tool. They both fit perfectly into the Pistol Mag pouch that is sewn into it. The mag pouch that is on it is fairly large, you might be able to fit a hi-cap pistol mag in there. The pouch has a zipper on top which lets you access the inside of the pouch which i use to put my phone and wallet while playing. And yes, that is a TF2 patch on there. (the other one is a spartan medic patch) Takes up 3x3 molle slots. [b]OE TECH Triple ak mag pouch.[/b] [IMG]http://i290.photobucket.com/albums/ll278/Foosili/P1010037.jpg[/IMG] This was the first pouch i bought for this vest. It can hold 2 AK/G36 Mags in each pouch OR 3 M4 sized mags in each pouch. It's standard, it secures with velcro in the front (there are also some buttons if you want to use them) and your mags go inside. Takes up 6x4 molle slots. [b]OE TECH M1911 Ambidextrous molle holster.[/b] [IMG]http://i290.photobucket.com/albums/ll278/Foosili/P1010044.jpg[/IMG] This was bought along with my triple mag pouch, and comes with a pistol mag pouch (seen mounted on the side of the holster.) and has a really short retention strap, which I don't use. At first, I didn't like this pouch because of how tightly it holds the gun, but after using it for awhile it has been broken in and works like a charm. The retention strap which is built in is really shitty though, It's so short i can't bring the gun up to aim when i use it. The mag pouch works really well, wouldn't hold a hicap magazine though. This holster also holds my WG Sport 7 6" revolver. Takes up 2x4 molle slots [b]OE TECH Shotgun shell Molle pouch[/b] [IMG]http://i290.photobucket.com/albums/ll278/Foosili/P1010043.jpg[/IMG] Holds 12 shotgun shells tightly with elastic, needed to be broken in at first to hold it's full capacity, but it works well. It also has a strip of velcro on the front of the pouch for any patches. Takes up 4x1 molle slots. [b]OE TECH EMT Pouch[/b] [IMG]http://i290.photobucket.com/albums/ll278/Foosili/P1010039-1.jpg[/IMG] Perfect for anyone playing the medic role, or someone who needs a large utility pouch to hold extra BBs or cans of green gas. The molle straps on the front are made of a thick elastic and are spaced far apart, so don't expect to mount anything other than a pistol mag pouch on here (or other 1x(>4) pouch). Closes with a zipper. Has elastic on the inside to hold various objects. Takes up 3x3 molle slots [b]OE TECH Roll-Up utility pouch[/b] [IMG]http://i290.photobucket.com/albums/ll278/Foosili/P1010040.jpg[/IMG] Looks pretty tiny right? Looks kinda useless right now. [IMG]http://i290.photobucket.com/albums/ll278/Foosili/P1010041.jpg[/IMG] Oh my what a big sack you have. This is a great solution for a dump pouch, the top closes with a cord which you can pull tight, and it rolls up for when you aren't using it. It holds 6 AK mags and 3 M4 mags with room to spare, and has a small patch of velcro on the front for a patch. Takes up 2x2 molle slots.

Your patch. It is awesome. I have the same vest in green, its quite nice.
[QUOTE=Timebomb757;19907301]Your patch. It is awesome.[/QUOTE] Thanks, Gabe Newell sent a "Red Fan Kit" to me before they went on sale because I helped organize a guest speaking for him at my friend's game design class at UC Berkley.
[QUOTE=Timebomb757;19907301]I have the same vest in green, its quite nice.[/QUOTE] So do I :buddy:
[QUOTE=DarkSamus;19907321]Thanks, Gabe Newell sent a "Red Fan Kit" to me before they went on sale because I helped organize a guest speaking for him at my friend's game design class at UC Berkley.[/QUOTE] Did it come with Velcro on it?
[QUOTE=Timebomb757;19907513]Did it come with Velcro on it?[/QUOTE] No, I just bought some adhesive velcro and slapped it on the back.
[U][B]Real Sword Chi-Com chest rig[/B][/U] [IMG]http://i60.photobucket.com/albums/h4/timebmb757/P1020011.jpg[/IMG] This is real swords copy of the stupidly common Chinese AK chest rig, commonly worn by AK-wielding insurgents the world over. [B]Quality:[/B] It definitely feels more solid than the real things that float around, but it is roughly double the price of most of the real ones Ive seen (This one cost me 18$). The shoulder straps, though thin, are quite well sewn on, though I feel that thier flimsiness will come back to bite me after extended use. The vest is made of a heavy canvas, with the tabs that hold the mag pouch covers closed being made of wooden beads, like the real thing. [B]Field use: [/B]This vest is great for an OpFor loadout, or any super low drag loadout on a budget. I also like it for short scrims, since the low magazine-holding capabilities are not an issue, and it is very light and breathable. The vest itself weighs next to nothing, and is easy to adjust to your personal preferences. Instead of a bucket for the back, it simply ties in a knot, which could be problematic if it gets wet, causing the knot to stick. I also get the sense that if I snagged the mag pouch covers on anything, the string holding them might rip, so be careful [IMG]http://i60.photobucket.com/albums/h4/timebmb757/P1020009.jpg[/IMG] [B] Capacity:[/B] This vest has three front cells specifically designed to hold a single AK mag. It does this job well, the mags fitting perfectly inside, being quite easy to get out. Flanking these cells on both sides are two grenade pouches, which can hold a hand grenade, 2 M203 rounds (Nearly perfectly) or a radio. Flanking the grenade pouches are two small utility pouches, these are good for small radios, multi-tools, claymore wire and detonators, and other various small things. [B]Overall:[/B] Its a great vest for an OpFor impression or a very light scrim loadout. Its lower capacity probably isn't as effective for a long, all day OP, but it still serves its purpose as a cheap AK vest designed to keep the user mobile.
FYI Darksamus, your vest is a replica of the Eagle Industries RRV (Rhodesian Recon Vest)
[QUOTE=Marine1st;19908191]FYI Darksamus, your vest is a replica of the Eagle Industries RRV (Rhodesian Recon Vest)[/QUOTE] Ah. I see, i'll have to tell my friend, he has a Rhodesian Assault Vest.
I just hate calling my replica gear by its replica name, like the Pantac Force Recon Vest is actually just a CIRAS
I added another subsection to organizing. Instead of just listing every peice of gear its now sorted into what brand then what type of gear it is.

I'll add another review tomorrow, of my gun case.
I should review my 46" gun case :v:
[QUOTE=CubeManv2;19911419]I should review my 46" gun case :v:[/QUOTE] Holy christ, and I thought my 36" one was pretty long.. [editline]7:01 PM[/editline] Nevermind its a 42". Still, holy shit.
Yeah i originally had a M16 and Kar98 and that 46" Was just cutting it. Now i got my VSR10 and My Tri-shotty both basically taking the full length

Now i got my VSR10 and My Tri-shotty both basically taking the full length[/QUOTE] Mine holds my Tri-shotty with the stock taken off, and my M4, and my AK74U in a spot just large enough for it in the pistol part of it, but i digress, I should be saving this stuff for my review.
[b]OE TECH/CONDOR 42" MOLLE gun bag[/b] This is a gun bag, and a great one at that. [IMG]http://i290.photobucket.com/albums/ll278/Foosili/P1010066.jpg[/IMG] [b]First impressions.[/b] Seems fairly quality, haven't used the molle straps on the sides of the front but everything seems to have held together nicely, lots of pockets and room. It's flat when it's not full, so thats nice. [b]Practicality.[/b] Pictures speak paragraphs here: [IMG]http://i290.photobucket.com/albums/ll278/Foosili/P1010055.jpg[/IMG] [tab]what the fuck, theres no way hes gonna fit all that stuff in there[/tab] [IMG]http://i290.photobucket.com/albums/ll278/Foosili/P1010062.jpg[/IMG] [tab]woah holy shit he did[/tab] FYI: That was.. 1x AK74U 1x JG M4 S-SYSTEM 1x DE M1014 Long barrel 9x M4 Magazines 6x AK Magazines 7x Shotgun shells 1x Stick battery 1x Mini battery 1x KJW M1911 1x KJW M1911 Green gas magazine 1x WG Sport 7 (6" barrel version) And I had room for a bag of BB's and roughly 2 cans of green gas left over, and that was without putting my mag pouches on the sides of the front to hold the mags. One thing i do NOT like however is the backpack straps. [IMG]http://i290.photobucket.com/albums/ll278/Foosili/P1010057.jpg[/IMG] [tab]worst thing about this bag, goddamn[/tab] The mounts for the straps like to slowly come undone when the big is heavy or full, so i always end up putting a sling on the areas where the backpack straps attach to the bag and carrying it that way. Overall this is a great solution for transporting all your toys to the field, especially since it has room for an AK74U in the [url=http://i290.photobucket.com/albums/ll278/Foosili/P1010067.jpg]pistol compartment[/url] and because the insides are [url=http://i290.photobucket.com/albums/ll278/Foosili/P1010056.jpg]all padded[/url] it will keep em safe too.

Condor 46" Molle Gunbag [IMG]http://i452.photobucket.com/albums/qq247/cubemanpro/Condor%2046/IMG_0308.jpg[/IMG] This bag is 46" long created by condor. It's the biggest bag they have on the market currently that i know of. It was 80$ on ASGI when i bought it. The bag comes with 2 straps and multiple selections to put the straps or straps on from the simple head to toe on your back to over your chest or just over your shoulder, The last two being your choice if your not tall enough to walk with it on your back. [IMG]http://i452.photobucket.com/albums/qq247/cubemanpro/Condor%2046/IMG_0309.jpg[/IMG] This pouch can hold smaller AEG's/AEP's/Pistols or accessoires. The Green velcro straps come with it (4 in this section) to hold the following above. You can fit AKSU's, CQB M4's and slightly bigger guns [IMG]http://i452.photobucket.com/albums/qq247/cubemanpro/Condor%2046/IMG_0310.jpg[/IMG] This is the pistol compartment section. On this layer you can put your pistol magazines in those holders. But wait that isn't all! [IMG]http://i452.photobucket.com/albums/qq247/cubemanpro/Condor%2046/IMG_0311.jpg[/IMG] You can put your pistol in a layer closed by velcro underneath this. [IMG]http://i452.photobucket.com/albums/qq247/cubemanpro/Condor%2046/IMG_0312.jpg[/IMG] The main section everyone buys this bag for (snipers alike). the 46" Main gun compartment. Comes with 4 green velcro straps to hold 2 guns or multiple guns or what ever you can fit into this monster. Covered in molle and side padding around it. [IMG]http://i452.photobucket.com/albums/qq247/cubemanpro/Condor%2046/IMG_0313.jpg[/IMG] All of this will fit into it, Except the cat. He didn't stay in it long enough for the picture [IMG]http://i452.photobucket.com/albums/qq247/cubemanpro/Condor%2046/IMG_0314.jpg[/IMG] Guns in.

USGI ALICE Gear: [IMG]http://farm5.static.flickr.com/4131/4994586256_cc513d4ac3_b.jpg[/IMG] This was and is my current gear, and it is all around excellent. Quality is excellent and carries everything I need in the field. This includes mags, BB's, admin stuff, etc. Just an example of how it looks with BDU's: [IMG]http://farm2.static.flickr.com/1130/5105706896_9628f1fecb_b.jpg[/IMG] I don't know how much more can be said. I run a belt/suspenders kit now with 2x ALICE M16 mag pouches, compression bandage pouch, LC2 IFAK pouch, PVS-7 pouch, 2x canteen pouches, and a buttpack and I'm usually set. The metal clips hold on way better than MOLLE and secure to the belt perfectly. I recommend this to anyone on a budget or looking for a light set up. Gentex LWH and USGI NVG Mounting System: [IMG]http://farm2.static.flickr.com/1335/5105488157_fc8888e666_b.jpg[/IMG] NIJ Level IIIA of Marine Corps awesomeness with titanium. Pads + PASGT cut + lighter weight + 4 point suspension = Awesome SHTF gear. NVG plate+swing arm great for that "h1 sp33d" Marine look. Overall the best $100 I ever spent.
