    @Chaos-Blade

    I generally use my Longshot until all the darts exhausted from my clips and then just swap to my furyfire or quadshot. They're just so much more convenient because you can load on the go.

    I still like wearing the vest though, it makes me feel more 'in the game' haha.

    Granted it's without my gloves, helmet, balaclava and goggles, but if I can get away with wearing this inside the freaking airport and on-board a freaking plane, you can get away with warring in like gear. Picture to go with LB05's post.

    Got a closer-up, unobstructed shot of your tac vest and also tell me where you got it from?

    EDIT: Also, I think it was your backyard war video I watched where you had a gun-mounted camera, mind explaining how you did that and what equipment you used? (To prevent cluttering this thread, you may want to consider PMing this answer to me)


    The vest is an FBSE, favoured by the US army over in Iraq, amazingly. It weighs 1.7 kilos with the dummy armour plates in and is great, looks pretty alright as well.



    And because it's awesome, you can also get CIRS 1000D vests that weigh 3.4 kilos and looks craptonnes better.



    It's an awesome way to carry gear around, and you always rock up the best dressed to wars

    Who needs vests when you can have the "Supa-nerf-annoying-extremely-awkward-chinese-fannygrabing-clip" Shown as below.



    Now been serious and not making this a "spam-liek" post you can buy webbing with magazine pouches and a ration holder "sits at back of webbing to hold your rations" that fits a 35 dart drum magazine from Aussie Disposals

    PS. The link will take you to the online webbing shop.

    I'd like to keep things simple and stick to a OG Y-point harness webbing, 'nam style (they were still using them up to Operation Gothic Serpent in the 90s).



    Anyone got any experiences with this setup?

    You bet I do, its called an alice pack which is complete when you are acually carring the pack not just the webbing. The main problem is carring it for hours with 2 full canteens and some food. The cadets still use them but some of my mates got issued pre "Nam'-WWII webbing which has to be replaced. The tactical vests are way more comfortable and carry more.

    Yeah Kingkottah and I are 3l1t3, he's in Airforce and I'm in army.

    This webbing setup is good, it dosn't bother me to carry it around all day with a heavy jumper, Vietnamese war radio, food, 2 litres of water, various cooking utensils.

    So webbing is the way to go

    My god, I have not seen that Nam-era webbing for nearly 10 years.
    Getting a bit of nostalgia there.

    Now that I remember that it was a piece of crap to deal with and decided to hand it back to the quartermaster, and bought my own kit.
    - The chafing from the ALICE clips holding the bloody canteens.
    - The strap buckles instead of clips to hold the flaps.
    - The need to unwear the webbing to reach the rear pouch (the bastard strap loops), or get your buddy to forage in the compartment (making sure that it's an unmarked can of two fruits and not an unmarked can of baked beans - both the same size and appearance, shake to tell the difference).

    Tactical vests and chest rigs have their own problems too, but not so relevant in Nerfing.
    A total hassle when low crawling (flat on stomach, gliding along the ground using fingers and toes to inch forward) with all those damn loaded pouches in the way.
    Also, it's absolutely crap when combined with a yowie suit (ghillie suit), which pros wouldn't do anyways.

    AND DAMN YOU AN/PRC-77 RADIOS AND NAM PACKS.


    tl;dr
    If you are putting mags in the rear pouch of that webbing, it's going to rattle a lot; and keep secure because it's held together by straps fed through a buckle, which you can't reach without taking the kit off.
    And ALICE clips used on the kit can cause chafing.

    We used to use the old webbing that you're talking about. It never gave me troubles.

    I used my webbing for and indoor war at home. It holds 2X clips in the Steyr pouches at the front. You can also fit 2 in the Minimi (Light machine gun) ammo pouch.

    I don't think it was suited to bony little runts like I was at that time.

    Bone and skin against ALICE clips, no good.

    Mind you, I was able to fit through the window security bars of my HQ building to open it from the inside, which was fitted months later after a theft.

    OK, obviously everyone has had different experiences with them, but personally, seeing as I am a fat-arse, I find using things like that very comfortable.

    I am mainly skin and bones but it wasn't that heavy. You can buy webbing ammo pouches seperate. I believe you could fit a 35 dart drum magazine in the back ration pouch "Back pouch."

    I have worn it with a Ghillie/Yowie suit for a stealth drill we did in cadets. It wasn't a problem, only problem was the cookings utensils banging around in my webbing so I shoved it full of rags I bought from a fishing shop before I went and it was silent - Note I actually won that drill.

    I haven't gone to the extremes of the 'army-like' vests (as awesome as they look :P) but this is what I very recently did.

    Short story: I work in a camera shop and got 2x discontinued models of a photography gear vest cheap. It's designed to have a separate belt unit strapped to the bottom, but I didn't bother ordering it since it wasn't nerf friendly.

    Already having a bandolier, but knowing it wouldn't work so great with the vest on also, I managed to work out a way of threading it through the bottom (with some modding of course, which also led to a nice mini mod - see if you can find it in the pic below :P)

    I'll do a full modification post in the mod thread if anyone is interested.

    @Zandor - That vest looks really practical! I like the way it looks to. I think it looks like it's a HvZ vest though haha. Kind of like 'made from scratch' to defend yourself against the zombies.

    In HvZ, I prefer to play as the 'civilian'. Double Shot and shells in some pouches haha.

    webbing

    Post  Waywardarrow on Sat Mar 26, 2011 2:48 am

    If anyone plans to use belt webbing (either nam era, or the newer auscam version) definitely get a belt comforter with it. The problem with the older styles are that there is no padding between where the clips attach to the belt and where they contact the body, hence chafing occurs.

    In terms of comfort with belt webbing compared to chest webbing,it really is up to the how each is set up. If too much weight is carried on a vest it will kill your shoulders, however if wearing the belt webbing its designed to spread the weight between the shoulders and hips. Also depending on the material of the vest it might trap in the body heat given off whilst running around.

    Well, I had made my own (I have industrial sewing machines) and only used it in bivouacs, so there was no issue.
    It still has that lovely, matured earthy smell, even though it hasn't been used for nearly 10 years.

    You wider guys can easily shift the pouches of the ALICE webbing towards your sides as you have more belt to work with, I couldn't.
    Weight wasn't an issue with them.
    It just didn't do the job well enough for me.

    But for Nerfing, it's not that bad, I would think, as you won't be spending silly amounts of active time with it.
    It's just not great if you had to spend more than 12 hours a day with it loaded for 5 or so days straight, with the occasional radio and a rotten Nam pack, constantly hiking in hilly terrain with minimal rest periods.

    The newer MOLLE webbing are better, but the plastic clips that replaced the metal ALICE ones were harder to re-configure with.

    What type of yowie suit do you have? Here is the one I bought its washable and is good quality with my experiences with ghillie/yowie suits.

    Plus two vests I spotted - http://www.kids-army.com/products/Kids-Black-Combat-Vest.html - http://www.kids-army.com/products/Kids-Camouflage-Combat-Vest-%252d-Woodland.html

    If you look at the alice pack a few posts up, the back pouch "the big one" should house one 35 dart drum and maybe a couple 6 shot mags.

    From you local Aussie Disposals or if you don't have one near by you can order them online.

    You will need to buy at least a belt and pouch you can by them seperate.

    JWatt7 wrote:What type of yowie suit do you have?
    As I had mentioned earlier, I made my own as I have some sewing sewing skills.
    It's in a hooded coat style, rather than an overall (a compromise for movement, flexibility, comfort, etc).
    Q-store had a bunch of old uniforms in an unusable condition (faded, battered fabric and holes, etc.), perfect as base material for making such a suit.
    Grabbed one many sizes too big to accommodate me and my kit.

    Cut and tear up other old uniforms into strips and also some scrim.
    Sew all that together, adding a hood, some vents and expandable pleats.
    Treat the suit roughly by beating, dragging, soaking and rolling in mud, then let dry.
    And never ever wash.

    Hence, it still smells nice from all that dirt and wood impregnated into the fabric.
    But keep it well away from fire.

    Yowie suits, if you're going to make one, it's only worth the effort if you go all the way with it because it requires a bit of work to make it even look half decent.
    And I'm still not satisfied with it, but I can't be bothered fixing it because I don't see the need in using it again (unless I'm totally no longer busy with other projects on backlog).

    None of the guns I use are clip-based (Maverick & Vulcan), So I just stuff my pocket full of loose darts. I hook the spare Vulcan belt into my pants belt.
    Plus I attach the guns themselves to shoulder straps so I can free my hands quickly for reloading if need be.
    The strap on the Maverick also allows me to cock and fire it one-handed.

    I haven't exactly attended a war yet, so I haven't got much experience in the field, but I tend to use a Nerf Camo Ammo pouch, which is actually great. By the way, on Aussie Disposals, they list an M16 ammo pouch- do these hold Nerf clips, and if so, how many?

    I tried using the pouch at the war and it kept flopping around and being a nuisance.

    That pouch is now owned by 2120

    I'm interested in getting a NERF tac vest but I'm pretty sure I'll be too fat ripped for it to fit me.

    Plus I'll need something that'll hold up my drop-leg holster so I don't have to worry about my pants falling down.
