    +1 on MOLLE gear. Get yourself a USGI FLC vest (Fighting Load Carrier.) They can be had for about $20 and are available in numerous camo patterns to suit your environment. Also, they have wide but thin straps and are designed to be worn without interfering with a backpack. I recommend the newer design with the zippered front. Check it out!

    Lol, I rocked one of these during my first tour to Iraq back in 03-04. It’s nothing personal, but I’m trying my best to avoid tactical stuff, it’s a closed chapter and don’t want to deal with girlfriend comments if I got a molle vest.

    But between us, the SADF M83 vest is what I would go with.

    Thank you for your service, Blake! I've just never been able to turn down the utility, quality, and cost of surplus GI gear. On the civilian side - the Tenzing BV-15 is an upland bird hunting vest I can recommend as a quality piece.

    Been using this for years but it’s changed a bit from the early model I have. Can wear it all day long and not even notice I have it on. Didn’t look too much at the current edition but mine also has a pouch for my chest. Binoculars, sunglasses, snacks, pistols etc. snaps on and off in a second.

    My two cents is to use the biggest mountainsmith hip pack. Theyre like 80 bucks and easily carry on front or rear of your body and are easy to strap to rack or handlebars. Has a wide waist belt and shoulder strap and a nice capacity. This is similar to the one I have.
