I've made a wrong choice? - MOLLE vest

Postby NeCtRiCkS » Thu Apr 10, 2014 8:42 pm

Hello, guys. My MOLLE vest just arrived. It's exactly this (from AliExpress indeed).
You can also check this guy wearing that model in (YouTube).

A friend said I should sell it, because "I'll cook inside of this thing" and then recommended me chest rigs.
I'll indeed play outdoors most of the time and I understand Brazilian climate is generally hot, but should I be worried?

Also, would you recommend removing its fake plates (as quoted in the above video at 3:37)?


Thank you so much :)

The Carrier is probably rather low quality, and probably not all that comfortable, but I don't see you dying of heat exhaustion in it. Just hydrate properly, I would never recommend removing fake plates, your pouches will be more secure, and the carrier will fit better because of it. If you are that worried about it, pick up a MODI JPC, or better yet, flyye.

I knew someone with that exact carrier, except it was branded "Matrix."

Go out and play with it. That's the best way to determine if that's the plate carrier for you. If you feel like you're being restricted, or that is too heavy, then clearly you'll want to move to a more lightweight platform.

Yeah, They have a way of rebranding of the crappy china gear, I wouldn't recommend any of it.

But definitely at least try it, Our guys have been getting issued gear like the OTV, SPC, Interceptor, and CIRAS in Afghanistan for years, so try it, see how you like it, and maybe see what kind of gear other guys are using.

Thank you, guys, for your attention :D
snipeakid, please, could you tell me a synonym for "issued" in that context? I've never figured it out in that kind of sentence haha.
Thanks again. Take care :}

As in the gear the American military gives to there soldiers. So if you are a Marine Rifleman, you are probably going to be given a SPC to use for your plate carrier. If something is issue kit, it is what is the standard for that military/unit.
