I'm very satisfied with my warrior RICAS armour carrier, do all the things I need from a rig and having used belt's in the past I much prefere a carrier setup.

I'm gonna use the Norwegian NFM Bear II modular battlevest.
Standard issue since around 2009-2010. It's a MOLLE vest with lots of smart solutions for wire for radios and tubes for camelback that has a built in pouch on the back. It also has many spots with velcro for mounting patches etc.

Mine is in Norwegian forrest pattern btw.

Depending on the type of game and/or missions, I either use a South African assault vest, a second generation Ephod with upper back pouch or a PLCE rig.
But this time I think I'll stick to just a belt with a hand gun... maybe a second pistol mag :P

German IDZ does the trick for me. Its most flexible and versatile, it is adjustable to fit perfectly and optimally transfers the weight. It is one of the heavyer choices you can make, for sure, a chestrig will be lighter, but as I said, if you adjust it correctly, you wont feel the difference in weight that much. In our team, we all wear it and everybody loves it.

We used to all wear IdZ's in my team as well, but now many of us have moved to chestrigs or smaller plate carriers (like the Lindnerhof gen3). I still have a lot of IdZ gear, and I do like it, but much of it is just so incredibly bulky for what it is.

Being able to mount pouches at 90-degrees is cool though.

Condor PC in coyote. You get a great PC for a really good price.
Now using it for 4 years, never had any issues with it.

I am always changing the setup a bit, but mainly i got 3 mag-pouches (for 6 mags in total), 2-3 smoke/grenade-pouches (for smoke and/or Tornados), my Blackhawk-holster on the chest and 1-2 radio-pouches on the back.

Used a 6094 at last berget, was a furnace, but a welcome one at the nights.
This time I'll use a SPOSN Smersh with a small hydration pack.
