Eagle large Plate carrier w/ cumberbund andside plate carriers on both sides, being used more as GP kinda deal.

tactical tailor double 30 and 20rd.
6 shot shotgun
and multi tool and flashlight in the black pistol pouch.

thinking i may change it up to run a triple 20rder across the front and 2 single 20rd pouches on either side of the center cumberbund.
not a fan of the double stack right up front. to much bulk to shot prone from..
And want some sort of blowout kit to keep with me.

Got a new piece of gear a couple weeks ago-

Mayflower APC, s/m
mayflower Kangaroo M4 pouch
BFG 10 speed
medium SAPI plates

waiting on a few things (ifak, CAT). So far it's pretty comfortable & lightweight.

Technique, could the Crye JPC be used as a concealable plate carrier, or is it strictly external?

FWIW, Mayflower is run by a former 5th Group CWO who was a team leader in the Group CIF (no, not the Central Issue Facility) and has lots and lots of experience with door kicking and developing custom gear for it.

That's the kind of company I like buying from, they know what works. I've looked into Mayflower before and I've never heard a bad thing about them. Some friends of mine trust their lives to their products. Same goes for London Bridge Trading. What I think I'll do is go with that carrier, then add a US Grunt Gear chest rig (http://www.usgruntgear.com/rrrarelichri.html) which matches up perfectly to the Mayflower carrier buckles. Either that or the LBT chest rig (http://www.londonbridgetrading.com/m...2-44A01216F0BB). That way I have some options.

Not that you have to get everything from them, but that vest I recommended from Mayflower has optional buckles on the front that allow their chest rigs to snap right into the vest instead of over-the-head straps. Just sayin'

Check out the 3rd link that Tech posted, he listed the ADI stand alone light-weight plates.

ADI lightweight plates

Although, constructing your own kit would also be quicker and more efficient than drawing from CIF.

You didn't read the part of my post where I said "not Central Issue Facility". Each SF Group has a CIF (Commander's In-Extremis Force).

Mayflower APC size medium/medium CB with medium level 3 plates and soft armor backers and cumberbun level 3 (soft armor is on its way). This rig is very comfortable and light weight. Loaded up with 10rd ca mags is 14.7 lbs (with out soft armor inserts). So I have the ESSTAC trip mag pouch with home made kydex inserts for retention. I threw the velcrow/ shock cord holders that came with the ESSTAC pouch in the back kangaroo pocket to carry more mags if needed. I can tuck them down if I dont need them.
Also have TAG double mag pouch with magnets which are my favorite. They hole single and double stack mags with good retention they also hold glock mags. Blue force gear tourniquet holder with CAT tq. Currently I run 1 kydex pmag holder with a single kydex pistol holder on my reaction side with a kydex holster on the rt all mounted on a belt. This rig is for training, classes and what ever else.

Great Write up!

It's funny, when I started out in the Army in 1988 we all had one rig - an LBE. Naturally, we all modified them as needed (when we could). I ran mine pretty high, sort of like a chest rig and replaced the buckles with 550 chord. Then a little later I was introduced to a few other rigs in SF, namely a modified version of the LBV that was starting to get issued Army-wide at the time, and mesh-based vest. Neither were particularly good though. Towards the end of '95 I was running a lightweight chest rig that layed over RBA, but still something really simple.

Flashforward to 2000, I return to the Army and things hadn't changed a whole lot. For the most part the LBE was gone, but the LBV was still fairly common along with the mesh vest. The big addition was attachment systems (PALS/MOLLE). And the SPEARS setup seemed pretty revolutionary. Modularity was catching on.

Now in barely five years, by 2005 things had changed significantly. On the SOF side we deployed with several different rigs. I had a stripped down plate carrier, a low profile IIIa vest, a full sized RAV carrier and a lightweight chest rig. All of which I used based on mission requirements. For example, going up and down mountains or doing a lot of foot work in a more permissible environment called for the lightweight chest rig over the IIIa vest or the plate carrier. The streets of Mosul called for the RAV and any time where extra mobility was preferred over protection, the plate carrier would come out again.

Most importantly, all of this stuff trickles down from the SOF community to the conventional Army. From TTPs to equipment. This was most evident to me when I came across a 2nd ID gunner running a para-SAW or seeing a 24th Stryker BDE guy with a 203 on his M4. Both of those used to be the domain of SF/Ranger Regt, but they trickled down out of the proving grounds to Army wide fielding.

So I guess there's nothing like a war to cause our gear to evolve rapidly.
