A Very Interesting Piece Of Kit: A Collaborative Work From Max Velocity and UW Gear.

First things first: Happy Mother's Day to all the mothers out there. The impact on your children's lives will ripple far beyond your own lifetime.

Now to the article.

LINK to the original article and video link from Max Velocity's Blog.

Pictures from the article.

The rig is a collaboration between Max Velocity and UW Gear.

The video is worth the time as well. There is also discussion here.

BLUF: I like the ability to switch between making this a 5.56 or 7.62 rig just by changing out the magazine inserts. 5 magazine capacity for the 7.62 insert, or a 6 magazine capacity for the 5.56 insert. Yet, all of the other pockets remain the same.

UW Gear is made here in America by hand. They do have a bit of lead time for their products, but I have yet to hear of any negative comments about their workmanship. Max Velocity brings an authentic touch of a guy who has been there and done that. Granted, it will not be everyone's piece of cake, yet, I think the idea has a lot of merit.

I have been looking at the Haley Strategic chest rig for some time now. But, I am quite taken with this design and its capabilities. Max Velocity has stated that he will be publishing an update very soon about the rig.

I based my battle belt design off ideas that Max Velocity had shared a couple of years ago. There are a lot of people out there with different ideas of what gear should look like. You have to decide what works best for you.
