Anyone have a battle belt for SHTF? Curious to see some setups.

Not sure I want to go that far into things and/or have that much stuff hanging off me.

Carrier already has 6 AR mags and 3 pistol mags along with TQ.

The purpose of a battle belt is to provide real estate to either add more gear or relocate gear. If your needs fit that purpose, then they can work great.

I have 511, Eagle, and London Bridge. None are for SHTF, all are for everyday use on the ranch. Nothing really special, a Holster, a First Aid Kit, Radio Pouch, Flashlight, Silencer.

Yep. For work. Only have 3 mags and a tourniquet on my plate carrier. Belt system is the way to go. Not to take away from this site again, but arf has a massive thread with pics and explanations where users post their setups.

This thread really got me thinking. I've put together a few mags, pouches, holster and knife just to see how it all works on a decent padded belt w/molle loops. The reality...it doesn't.

But this is the reality check I needed. Even with only 2-30 Rd AR mags and 2 20 Rd pistol mags with loaded gun and knife this is a heavy combo. I liked the versatility of a padded belt but if I want to set up with this much gear, I need something different and better.

NO Battle Belts for me. - Instead, I have a woodland camo REMINGTON vest that had NUMEROUS pockets for magazines for my Model 760 PUMP-rifles & BOTH "bullet loops" to fit my .30-06 or .300SAV ammo AND shotshell loops for buckshot.
(I found my vest, brand new with price-tag for 34.99 in a pocket, at the Salvation Army store here in SATX for the princely sum of 3.99 plus tax, less my GI discount.)

I find the vest MORE comfortable than ANY so-called "Battle Belt".
(That said, I still have my old Army web-belt with 2 canteens, 1st aid kit, holster & a pouch that holds FOUR 16-round 9x19mm magazines, that I can strap on if I need to.)

yours, satx
