Thank you I appreciate your post, I really like my setup as well. I have a radio pouch coming in today to add to the setup and I am going to put the Baofeng uv-5r in that pouch, and last night I put my survival knife on the vest as well temporarily until I can get the m9 bayonet for the ar15, so so far its pretty much a complete setup.I like the older LBV/LBE sets I use both alice and molle but prefer LC2 alice . They transfer weight to your hips better than the new stuff . I get mine out and use them when hikeing or shooting so I can judge where best to put each pouch , KA BAR , canteens , butt pack . compass , first aid , holster . Thoes old surplus are great gear you did a good job with your gear selection . If my dial up would let me post pics I would add some of the sets I've been working on .
