wow this is just way too weird.....was looking at this thread and well this popped up as a google ad, but prices are very reasonable on chest rigs and also have nice tactical fleeces for like 50 bucks what! Idk if I should be scared or happy that this popped up.

I used a Spec Ops Sabre vest for several years. Was awesome as Spec Ops used to make the best products for scenario paintball. But as my interest grew, I went out and bought on of the last Gen1 Full Clip Combo rigs. Best investment ever. I hope to get quite a few years out of it. Plus the molle allows for complete customization

Molle Vests

Get a Molle vest its well worth the money but if your not looking to break the bank Get the BT HRT or the BT static vest. Both I think are 35 dollars and pouches can range from 4-15 dollars but if you have the money get the merc vest. I have the merc and HRT vest I love them both the merc is a little moer comfortable but the HRT is plenty comfortable. I use 2 BT multi holsters for my SA-17's and some other pouches

I picked up a BT MERC w/ 2 2+3 at my home field for cheap.
Feels great, works great.
My only advice, paintball harnesses are designed for paintball we play different the tactical military or air soft.
A lot of the military rigs have everything on the front because that is where they keep their important items.
Just some food for thought.

I like Molle vests so I can mod them however I want, and can change them up to be "mission specific." I also own several vests, each one has its specific purpose and perfect temperature (i.e. I don't wear my juggernaut suit when its 100+ degrees out and humid, but in the cold, its perfect).

I just bought the V-Tac vest, I believe its the Echo version. Love the thing. Now just have to figure out what sort of things I want to put on it for scenario...

Best is a very subjective thing. BT and Valken make great vests, I use the EMPIRE BATTLE TESTED THT B.A.M.F. VEST right now, its a little cheaper then building a vest, but you don't have AS much flexibility with moving stuff around as the pod pack on the back is fixed on the vest.

Pod packs are best for speedball or rec ball where you are on the field for a short period of time. For rec ball I find I need only a couple of pods but need fuller load outs for speedball. Vests work best for scenarios where you are out playing for a long period and a hydration bladder is carried in a sleeve in the vest. Plus you can usually add additional pouches for radio, grenades, etc. The vest does a better job of distributing the weight since the water adds a lot.

Can't really go wrong. If I were you, take a look at RAP4. They actually have a big selection of MOLLE attachments, sadly not too many vests.

I like molle as you can change your load out as much as you want without having to buy different vests...
+1 for full-clip, i have their Gen2 vest combo and it's amazing, you can grab their stuff at rockstar tactical.

I've never heard of Whiskey Two Four before but their stuff looks top notch!
