Help! Newbie. Remote line pod pack or vest

I'm new to milsim and I'd really like to run a vest or a pod pack that can hold my remote air. I ordered the Gen X backpack and it's way too big. I was running around my field today with my school backpack with pods and the tank in it with my PE pod pack on my back and it was way too hard pulling out pods because the backpack overlapped the pod pack.


The requirements are:
Must hold at least 77ci tank
Must hold the tank on the lower back
Must hold Atleast 4 pods on the BACK.

Help me! Thanks.

Try buying a molle vest. Then get some mole pod holders and a molle tank pouch. You can add almost any pouches to this type of vest, and it's fairly cheap. I have one and love it.

You can also look into battle belts and bandoliers, but it's all the same idea. As long as it's molle, you can't go wrong. Just add any kind of pouch you might need to it.

This is what I ordered, wasn't really into MOLLE vests. This even holds a hydration blatter which is cool.

Looks decent and seems like it should fit your needs.

But I'll warn you I had a 4+3 pack from GXG that the main belt separated from the body of the pack after 2 days of use. I have emailed them a bunch of times. They said they'd replace if I provided pictures. I did so and have emailed them once a month since it happened. I still don't have a replacement pack.

Yeah I hate to ruin the excitement of a new toy, but this is just my personal experience. It was my first GXG product, and probably my last.

I have the same vest and I hate it. Velcro that holds the bottle pack starts to peel from each other with a bottle in it, the front pod holders font close on a 140 pod, and the Velcro connection pieces are backwards (ie the shoulders of my jersey gets torn the hell up because the hook part faces down

I'd recommend looking at one of the BT vests like the BAMF

http://www.rockstartactical.com/2013...bamf-etacs.htm

Or the one I have is the BT Merc vest.

http://www.rockstartactical.com/2013...merc-etacs.htm

Its a full MOLLE vest and allows for ridiculous amounts of customization. Now I just have to find a place that does embroidery so I can get my name put on the name plate/patch/thing
