Did you have to modify your holster to be compatible with the X300 Ultra?

No not for the 6360 holster which is what i have. The 6280 you have to pull out the dust cover at the bottom of the holster.

Do you guys prefer nylon to the basket weave? I'm still trying to figure out the best combo on my belt, no taser though...

You can buy basketweave that isn't real leather. I have used nylon my whole career (except funerals - I have a leather rig for those).

If you move stuff around make sure you spend a lot of time practicing grabbing stuff. Don't want to reach for OC and come up flashlight!

Leather is better, the fake basketweave stuff works too, we used to spray paint the fake stuff with black paint for ceremonies. Made it nice and shiney.

Would duty belt suspenders help save back problems due to overloaded duty belts? Are they allowed in most agencies?

Suspenders or a load bearing vest WOULD actually help lower back problems (as experience and almost any doc will tell you) but I don't know how many agencies authorize them. Mine doesn't without a medical issue or if a load bearing vest is part of your uniform as a special unit.

Who makes the suspenders in the picture above?

I wear the suspenders that go underneath the shirt and are basically invisible. They are:

1) Awesome
2) Expensive
3) Of questionable durability (the parts that attach to the belt are beginning to bend after about 1 year)

Our chief approved load bearing vests for patrol. He wants us to go through The Vest Man down in LA. As soon as I get it all worked up, I'll be making the prototype purchase and then we'll polish up the policy. Mine will be mostly MOLLE just because we don't know where everything should go. I expect most purchases to be sewn-on pouches in a permanent location, so it looks less military.

I'm jealous. The excuse from our brass is essentially that anything other than the stereotypical police uniform is too "unapproachable" for the public. I could care less that it's more "tactical," I just want to save my back!

I believe it's by Tactical Tailor. So if your agency doesn't approve of suspenders, would those back support vest be approved to be worn underneath the uniform? I am on an eligibility list for SDSO and just curious to see what most agencies prefer. I've heard of an officer that had to go on medical leave due to back problems from wearing overloaded duty belts.

My philosophy.

2 is 1, 1 is none.
Can't walk around pointing your gun all over the place to use your flashlight. When you do have your gun out, weaponlight frees up your other hand, and illuminates what you're targeting.

I also have more flashlights in my equipment bags and on my person (small led to signal helos, low power for working on paperwork on hood of vehicles, etc).

(ETA: Well I just saw one belt has two handheld flashlights....so I guess that's who you were asking. I'll just leave this anyways)

I was wondering why he would have 2 flashlights that takes up the precious belt space. To each their own.

BTW, where do you guys put your mace/over spray? 1 o 'clock, 2?

I'll bite:

All but 1 of the belts has a radio holder (I'm assuming you are calling a portable an "extender" which is more a CHP term). The radios just aren't pictured.
Not sure what "secondary" means. Backup gun?
Cell phone doesn't go on the belt unless you're trying to break or lose it.
I think my rig was the only one with a Taser. Not sure on that one.
I dropped my OC when I got the Taser - space became an issue, though I am trying to figure out how to get it back on.
Only 1 belt doesn't have baton IIRC.

Do you realize how much all this crap weighs? Plus we carry stuff in shirt pockets, BDU pockets, etc. This isn't all the stuff on us. And then you have to figure out how to keep it secure and quiet, so you can sneak around at night without looking or sounding like the FNG.

That is a lot of crap to get up with and walk around with every day!

Thanks for your service!

We get our load bearing vests front he Vest Man. We've had minor issues dealing with them but they always make things right. If it's a prototype, I wouldn't suggest MOLLE if you still need to sell it to admin. If the chief is good to go then MOLLE isn't that big a deal. I could be wrong but I don't think they do MOLLE though. I don't think you need to do it anyway. When you place the order you literally trace your vest on a big sheet of paper. Then you trace what you want, where you want it. (cuffs, taser, radio, etc.) You'll have a pretty good idea about where stuff will be. They will move pockets for you too if you aren't happy. We've had a couple guys want things changed and send their vests back. But it hasn't happened very often.

We've had them about a year and a half. I've been in plain clothes the whole time but I've worked a few OT patrol shifts in it. After a couple shifts you'll wonder how you ever worked patrol without it. The only think I have on my duty belt now in my gun, mags, and OC. It's awesome. Some guys put everything on their vest and only have their guns on their belts.
