I’m thinking of upgrading my banshee plate carrier to something better to go with my ShotStop plates. Top choice so far is Crye JPC but I’d love to hear what other Alumni are running and what they think of it.
My father in law runs the Crye JPC and loves it. I run the Warrior Assualt Systems recon rig. I personally love the quick snaps versus Velcro. I have been eyeballing the first spear rigs for a while, just haven’t pulled the trigger based on the price point.
I run a jpc but swapped the cumberbound out for a first spear tube unit. I love the first spear tube design. If I had to do it again, I’d go with a full first spear plate carrier. I bought the jpc a year before I switched the cumberbound and didn’t want to spend the additional several hundred dollars for the full first spear rig.
Velocity Scarab LT. With the ultra small zip on back pac. The articulating shoulder straps make for super comfortable movement. Plus with Velocity in the name how can you go wrong. Seriously though, great piece of kit. I can quickly attach either of the MVT chest rigs I have.
So after a lot of deliberation I decided to try out a US made version of the LBT 6094. AWS Inc makes it,there are some great reviews and their gear is well made. They sell their version of the 6094 for about $150 and I can get a tubes conversion for it for another $100 from Beez Combat systems. After I receive it I will update with what I think of it.
