    How many mags you wanting to carry?

    Are you looking for lightest weight, or an option with hydro carrier?

    I've been running the Original SOE - Mookie War Rig. I've had the rig for over 2 years now. I just picked up the matching hydro carier a few month ago. I do like it over my plate carriers due to weight. And works well if you are rocking a TADGear jacket beneath

    I ran a Blackhawk chest rig before this, but it had no ventilation. Where the rig was in contact with your body, would sweat like crazy. No issues like this with the War Rig.



    The MWR-Light features:

    • 4 x single magazine pouches with adjustable flaps
    • In addition to being adjustable to fit everything from an M4 mag with Magpuls to an AK mag, the removable pouch flaps are Velcro and snap secured and have built in speed pull tabs
    • Side PALS webbing to fit accessory pouches or more mag pouches as needed
    • Quick release padded shoulder pads for comfort and fast egress
    • Elastic tube on right shoulder strap for hydration tube or comm system wire routing.
    • Double layer construction
    • Zippered main compartment pouch with internal PALS webbing that can be used for an internal pistol holster like the Eagle G-Code or Blackhawk CQC holster.
    • Available in MULTICAM, FOLIAGE GREEN, and DESERT BROWN.
    • Can attach optional OSOE hydration carrier


    The also have a version of this rig with webbing only, a micro rig variant which has an admin pouch + 2 double mag pouches.

    The AK/M4 rig has double pouches, so will carry 8 mags + 2 utility pockest on each side. Other then that I think they are the close to the same size.

    MC. Ran across this video of the SOE guys talking about their rigs
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XhG6fUgYQ3k

    Of course its very SOE biased, but you can see the thought process behind their designs.

    Gunfighter Cast episode 31 is all about gear. Mission appropriate equipment. What to carry, what NOT to carry, how to set it up.

    so i have been waiting to place my order, and it seems a local AZ guy has designed his own, had it built and it taken off like wildfire!

    So I am now looking into the Shihan chest rig, waiting to see the price point.



    Anyone know someone with one or can give some feedback based on pics from google image search?

    So far it appears that it has an X harness which wouldn't allow the addition of a hydration carrier
