    The SADF pattern 83
    and Soviet Lifchik are probably my favorite chest rigs, but they are expensive and hard to find real ones. What I want is a chest rig capable of carrying more than 6 extra 30's for AKM and two large pouches each side ( left side to carry 4-6 extra 30's and and large pouch on right side big enough to carry large drug/meds bag and full trauma kit. Ideas, anyone

    We have a 50 person fallback survival retreat. We know some members are not equipped to do guard duty other than having a long gun and required ammo.

    We purchased lots of kids back packs from the thrift stores for about $2 each.
    Some will need a touch of camo spray paint.

    Not the fancy chest rig but it carries their poncho, water and lots of magazines. Mag pouches can be easily made to hang in the front.

    In your case, perhaps you could hook a Guard Equipment backpack onto a Medical backpack. Total cost: $4

    I know it all sounds unmanly and all, but try equipping 15 people on no money outlay.

    You pay for what you get though. A real russian/yugo rig is going to be pricey.

    I had a similiar problem trying to lug my pistol..extra ammo..asp and other assorted nice things in the concealed carry mode without it pulling my pants down. Finally settled on carrying anything I want on my trouser/gun belt and support the bulk of the weight on faithful Diluth Trading big boy suspenders worn under my slouchy long tailed shirt. Plenty of room for cuffs and taser..big knife etc. Willing to bet a person could carry a bunch of ammo if they had some.
