Above the waistline warbelt setup

Currently doing nothing but playing around some weird deviant concepts of loadouts.

above waistline warbelt setup

To make and old-school ammunition belt with modern modular pieces of gear.

Single vulnerable D-ring can be replaced with adapter as Maxped D-pouch, but it increases overall cost of solution. Would be better to replace it with paracord loop or two.

Poor man’s substitute for quick attach tri-glide buckles and for G-hooks

Poor man’s substitute for quick attach tri-glide buckles and for G-hooks

Driven by the idea to save money and simplify logistics, I made a pair of concepts of dirt-cheap analogues of quick-attach ladderlock buckles.

The task is – to connect two webbing loops (for example, attach/detach compression straps on the backpack)

The solution – cord loops, locked with

1) carabiner

2) the strap itself

Greyman armor carrier – stolen ideas recombination

As political tensions are becoming more intense, I again and again find myself thinking about sneaky/concealed/covert/discreet/plain soft armor carrier for “family and recreational purposes”.

My considerations were pretty obvious:
– holding two soft armor panels (any proprietary cut I can acquire)
– non-suspicious outer image, maybe even disguised as warwear
– easy waist adjustment
– fast ditch, maybe not so important in civilian application, but welcome anyway
– easy recover from ditching
– somehow controversial feature – an opportunity to attach mini/micro chest rig
– ambiguous feature – an option to insert hard plates

Plate carrier with warbelt – weight distribution, spine support

This is only a draft idea, but can’t contain it. Many similiar solutions already exist – Crye’s StKSS, Mystery Ranch BASE, Virtus system element, BCB load carriage yoke, TYR’s X-frame, TUR Gear PkDLCS. My idea is to make a drop-in addition to any COTS plate carrier and barely any warbelt to add a new feature.

Frame is installed into the PC in the way as danglers, hangers and lower asserory pouches are installed, and sits in the plate pocket. To the warbelt it can be connected via PALs or as drop-leg panels, with thw slots on the w.b., not sure, may be even both types for more stability.

Frame sits on the sides of warbelt, not on the back – for more freedom of movement.
