          Great talk! The SOR is my go to recon rig for hiking the ranch. Fits nice with the fight lite concept. Shared with some folks who are looking at gear, hopefully they pull the trigger.

              Thanks for that one, Max. Now I know how to use it with a PC.

              That adjustable radio pouch is a nice touch. I got the first round of these latest SOR’s and mine doesn’t have the adjustable radio pouch. It fits a Yaesu VX-170 just fine, so it’s great for me. I can stuff some beef jerky in the holes beside the radio and they don’t fall out the bottom.

                The SOR is a great rig, I have the previous model. I’ve shared this video with several people! :good:

                  Just received one of the new batch, thanks Max!

                  Guys, if you are on the fence or looking for an upgrade, pull the trigger and get the SOR. It’s clear that an amazing amount of thought went into the details of this design. What’s difficult to appreciate from this video is the quality of the workmanship. The stitching is clean and reinforced in the areas where you would expect that you need it (thanks to it not being made in an overseas sweatshop!). The retention of the kydex inserts kicks ass too.
                  I’m pumped about breaking it in with some sweat of my own at MVT next weekend!

                      I have a original versa rig, which is awesome. And a second versa rig with the detachable pouches, which is also amazing. (Not to mention the thermal shield). I have been wishing I grabbed the patrol rig when it was out and I am not going to miss the SOR (again).

                      So all you on the fence better jump off and not miss out on this great pieces of gear.

                      If it isn’t obvious to folks, the gear Max is putting out is very high quality. Also, it has not been a given that new runs will happen for a particular item, though I hope with our support this can become a reality.

                      Stop buying crap gear. This is not a game.

                            Have 2 SOR on order, but (tangentially) where do you get PRC-152 radios? I have an Amateur Extra rating so the legalities are not an issue, but can’t find these radios and they certainly–from the promo specs–seem to beat the crap out of 2 meter units. Thanks.

                                I am looking forward to mine.
                                What carrier are they being shipped with? USPS?

                                If so, I need to stalk my mailman because he has delivered some of my packages to places that don’t even resemble my address. :wacko:

                                  Uh huh. Yours was I believe shipped UPS. They were all shipped UPS until I got to Lloyd’s, and then it killed me. Because a lot of you are ‘preppers’ and live in out of the way places, UPS shipping kills me. Like there is often an additional $7 charge for living deep rural etc.

                                  So after Lloyd’s, I believe they all went in flat rate priority mail boxes USPS. But I hate USPS, because it is a typical socialist government organization, and the one in Culpeper is hard to get to / park in the center of town. UPS is free market, and it is where I go to collect my mail. But in this case socialism won out over free market simply due to government funded costs!

                                  But shipping kills. I constantly put shipping too low, for example the mugs killed me shipping UPS. I had some orders that did not include rigs, but t-shirts and mugs, and basically I lost money shipping those! I think the USPS plan will save the situation though.

                                  CITTAC steel ships his targets USPS flat rate! Boxes are usually fallingz apart when they arrive!

                                    I’m in the process of putting in another order of 50 SOR with the manufacturer. Don’t let me down guys!

                                      Ok. Thank you for the info. The shipping aspect is a pain and I would prefer to use UPS when possible.

                                      I was curious if the recent sharing of MVT info helped with SOR sales to new people, or if it looks like they went to the usual suspects.

                                        I think mostly the usual suspects. But not sure with some, hard to correlate non-alumni with forum members, due to use of code-names!

                                        Although at least a couple of straight up new guys judging by a couple of ‘where is my rig’ emails. Dude, it is literally out for delivery to you right now! Always someine thinks I am out to cheat them, case of projection mostly!

                                        Hence the want to try and build demand on social media before the next 50 drop.

                                        Hence

                                                I’m just glad my communist mailman didn’t deliver it.

                                                  Received mine. Quality looks excellent as usual.

                                                  I took it to my local gun store buddies. Showed it off a bit and gave them some info on where to look for them and to keep there eye out for folks looking for gear.

                                                  Going to go train a bit on some steel in the AM before it hits 100 here… Will post something to insta tomorrow.

                                                    SOR rigs, Really like the 4 magazine set up compared to the regular 3 for a plate carrier.

                                                    While they come in Multi-cam would there ever be any produced in other colors such as Ranger Green, a Coyote Brown?

                                                      ETA on the new batch of 50? I ordered one, received it and now i need to get a couple more for a spare and to loan out. Wow!!! The quality is off the charts, they are awesome!!!!
