Hey friends!

Welcome back to the blog! Today we'll be looking at my latest MultiCam plate carrier set-up!

For the base, I'm using the 'Rush 2.0 Plate Carrier Tactical Vest' by Primal Gear from The Rush 2.0 Plate Carrier is designed to be a light and durable utilitarian piece of kit for airsofters. It's constructed from Cordura 500D which is more than enough for battle on the airsoft field. The vest is able to carry M SAPI ballistic inserts, as this is for airsoft, I'm using FMA SAPI M Ballistic Plate Replica (also from Gunfire) which gives me more protection and keeps the shape of the carrier. The front and back vest panels, as well as the detachable cummerbund, are covered with MOLLE / PALS webbing that allows you to expand the carrying capacity of the vest with various pouches. On the back there is a zipper so you can attach dedicated Rush 2.0 panels and backpacks (more on that later!)

Other features of the carrier include: a drag handle, concealed tabs for the attachment of panels and placards, a flat pocket with an organiser on the chest, padded shoulders for added comfort and large loop velcro space at the front of the carrier for patches! My full review on this plate carrier is coming soon so keep your eyes peeled!

For the front panel I have the OneTigris Placard 01 (OneTigris Chest Rig/Vest Add-on Triple Mag Pouch with Utility Pouch) in MultiCam! The Placard 01 has the capacity to carry three 5.56 magazines (however I did manage to fit some AK mags in as well!) and 2 pistol mags. The 5.56 pouches have adjustable shock cord retainers plus webbing pull tabs to keep the mags secure even when you're prone and the pistol mag pouches have velcro flaps to keep them secure. It also features a utility pouch at the front with an adjustable hook-and-loop divider inside so it can be customised to the users spec. I secured this to my Rush 2.0 carrier via the hook velcro at the back and the buckles at the top of the panel.

For the back panel, I'm using the Tactical Backpack for Rush 2.0 Tactical Vest from Primal Gear also from Now, hear me out! This backpack is quite large but, it has a lot of space and in turn a large carrying capacity which is fab for longer ops or when you play sites that run longer than average games. It is a dedicated backpack for Rush 2.0 Plate and it zips onto the back of the vest - super simple. This backpack enables the end user to carry additional equipment including extra ammo or a hydration bladder for hydration on the field. It has a vertical zipper giving you quick access to contents of the backpack, additional mesh pockets inside the main compartment to keep everything organised and separate, a flap with a pocket to keep small accessories accessories safe and a grommet at the bottom for drainage.
