Came across this and thought I'd share because it looks like a great way to carry your Ground Team/UDF gear.

I've also used the Hill People Gear Recon chest kit and it's worked wonders, even when in the aircraft on extended over water ops.
Always give 100%, unless you're giving blood.

I use a Field Load Carrier from CanadaHuntGear.com It doubles as my safety vest. I can carry my entire 24 Hour kit in the vest along with my Radio and personal UDF equipment. It also has a built in Camelback.
It distributes the weight extremely well.

Just looked at the website.  The price on the total setup of $200 is very reasonable if that is what they normally sell it for.

That is what I paid for mine.

Is it ANSI compliant? I can't tell if there's reflective material on it from the photo.
Believe in fate, but lean forward where fate can see you.

 I don't see any evidence of reflective material, and there are no contrast areas.

Class 2 ANSI Safety Vest

A Class 2 vest is intended for working environments that pose a greater risk. This can include workers who are on a roadway where traffic is moving under 50 mph. These vests are larger than their class 1 counterparts because they require more high visibility and reflective areas to be present. A Class 2 vest must have at least 775 square inches of safety yellow or safety orange back ground material and 201 square inches of reflective striping. These ANSI safety vests are commonly worn by survey crews, airport baggage handlers, and school crossing guards.

That is the minimum required by our rules.
