What I often do is use what I have collected over the last 10-15 years and mash it together.
What I have here is one of the 5.11 tactical MOLLE chest rigs with a Condor 3 mag shingle. I added an admin pouch (which has a small compass) and a Leather Wave on the front. The GP pouch was added later. It contains a medkit. In the map pouch on the right side I placed a Cold Steel Roach Belly Knife.
What budget tactical gear have you put together?
