Nice work Snow!

So..everybody..have we maxed this out yet or are there more people who want to contribute with photos and/or photos of themselves with the particular kit that this thread is based on?
Darius...Catch..anyone else?

Yeah..sure..let's keep this one open then. Sorry about that...you stated that earlier. I forgot. HAH!

BTW...off-topic...after Darius's stuff is done...I'll be working on something that, as far as I know, nobody has done yet (or they just haven't shared it with anyone). It's similar to what I've been doing with the FCHP's but in a way that allows use of items you may have put away in the attic or have thought of selling. I think the idea I have will work and as soon as the first test run is done...I'll post up and then put up pricing for the mod. It's going to be interesting. Hint: what to do with your older, strap-attachment type knee pads..such as Alta's..Hatch..etc.

If you have a guy with an M4 and one hicap, it's the kind of kit they use, but not enough of it to pull off the look.

Look at his kit. He has all the stuff that would be issued. For any one of those SF SOF loadouts.

It's also one thing to have the gear, another to wear it like they do. It's the subtle things...

This thread isn't "how to wear the gear" but "what gear would they wear"

It's also talking about a complte SOF loadout, not one or two pieces that they might get issued and calling it a loadout.

It's a complete load out for a game.

I guess he could roll around in the dirt and throw on a Holloween beard to make you happy.

Well, the guy I talked to said this is basically what they are required to carry:

Mags (have)
Comms (have comms, need pouch, any old MBITR pouch will do)
Water (In charge pouch)
IFAK (have)

Plus the random SAW pouch for junk and CAT on the back, as well as some means of IFF, be it the admin pouch or the velcro on the sleeves. He also said that they *sometimes* carry packs for those extended missions, but they're based out of a FOB most of the time, so there is sometimes no point. In the case that they do need a pack, it's either a MAP or random 3-day pack, which I have, if you want a pic with that.


Also:

Nope, not a G&P, DD EZXV. ;) My M4 was down for work so it could look like this (needs moar crane stock):

Forgive the brown ACOG, I've also seen those on issued weps. I just tossed it on there so as not to cry. :(

Well that's for a Ranger impression.

Ranger Recon use RRVs though and SEALs don't always use armor.

But Ranger Recon also wear full kit loadouts like SF, as do SEALs, so if we're looking for the best SOF universal impression, it'd be a chest loaded out with more 2-mag pouches, an MBITR pouch, knee pads (I still see more SOF with knee pads than Crye. Probably because the crye knee pads fall out when you're low crawling)

Other guy I talked (Ranger) to said that "rhodesians" haven't been used in years, be it for scout, regular, or recon troops. :/

Did he mention what type of chest rigs, if any, are used, then? Or are they mostly running a myriad of different lightweight armor combo are stand-alone carriers, rather than chest rigs?

Curious as to what's the latest.

I saw Ranger Recon guys wearing them at RSLC (Recon & Surveillance Leaders Course) a year ago at Ft. Benning.

One guy I talked to said he just ordered a custom plate carrier in OCP/Multicam from BDS Tactical, he didn't say which model though. I can ask him about it, but it might just be his unit's SOP to allow it.

Darius, he also said they haven't used ACUs in years, because of the change to Multicam, but there are also plenty of pics of them wearing them in training, so it might have just been for training. Iono though. :/
