A bunch of goodies arrived today! First up is a photo of my brand new Flyye 1961A chest rig loaded up with all the gear I’d need for a day on the field.
I’ll be running exactly this set up on the field on Sunday @ ASG Game Day, will do an in-depth review on it after I actually use it for a day. Preliminary messing around with the chest rig has raised a few pros and cons IMO:
- Side medical/GP pouches aren’t quite big enough to fully enclose a 1 qt. canteen when using the flaps.
- Rifle mag pouches are large enough to accommodate TWO Beta Project AK PMAGs/Bulgarian AK waffle mags.
- Flaps for rifle mag pouches are too short to actually fully cover Beta Project AK PMAGs – the hook and loop will barely engage but it seems that the lids don’t like to remain closed with the little bit of attachment that the flap can grab onto.
- Flyye’s 1961A is a clone of early-gen LBT 1961A, there are subtle improvements made in the later gen that are not present in this one.
- TONS of space for cramming whatever I want into the chest rig – I could run two radios, carry 7000+ BB’s, and 8 AR15/AK74-sized mags. That’s not even including all possibilities for the little pouches in front of the rifle mag pouches…
- H configuration of shoulder straps has potential to be quite comfortable (angles of straps and padding is all very well thought out), but it is quite a pain to adjust on your own – I actually had to adjust one on the fly for a squadmate (“Jester”).
… List of stuff pictured is after the break.
