Hey all, also posting this in the military area since the topic somewhat overlaps:
I do search & rescue, and I'm interested in seeing if you guys have recommendations for tactical vests. Don't get me wrong, I don't have any goofy aspirations of playing John Wayne or pretending I'm doing some commando BS. I just think a good vest would help keep my stuff together and reduce the "where did I put that/dammit let me get back to the truck/gotta dig through this bag/oops fell out of my pants".
I'm looking to hold the following items:
-maps and mission detail paperwork
-emergency worker card (basically like a driver license
So far I've checked out the Tactical Tailor MAT-V, and I've seen the Condor Modular Chest Set in person. The Condor would be great except the front pouches are for M16 style mags and not really wide enough for maps... unless there's molle map pouch I could add on.
Thoughts and suggestions, please!
