I'll get some pics up with my mix-matched pouches and my woodland ruck! For now, here's another one done in MultiCam.

You'll need to let me know how it works out for you and if there are any areas you feel could be improved or changed. I'm always interested in feedback!

Here's one I just did by request in MultiCam and Tan499 webbing. It has an original harness. The main differences between this and the current design is:

- The shape of the back pad
- The number of PALS rows
- Continuous webbing, front to back
- No para cord loops for strap articulation
- Slightly longer padded sections on the straps

Which design do you guys like better?

I like the use of the rectangular metal ring for hanging the rear supports.   I'm tinkering with using a D ring moved up to on top of the back panel, so the harness can be used to support a chest rig as well as allowing use with a Brit Belt Order rig. 

As the GWOT winds down, I see "us" going back to a tropic A/O, with emphasis changing from chest rigs back to a belt rig to allow max cooling/ventilation of the chest and abdominal cavity.

I don't know how I missed the last one, but the ring you see at the top of the rear strap is a double loop of Paracord. It's super strong and flexible so it won't create a hard point under a pack. I actively avoid using buckles on the harness.

What kind of foam do you guys use for most of your padding? Is. There a general universal thickness for tac gear? I'm looking for sources and suggestions. Thanks!!!

Right now, the foam is 1/8" thick EV50, from the Evazote product line. It's OK when it's laminated, but I'm still trying to hunt down something more rigid.

What elastic are you using for your keepers on the straps?

Please correct me if I'm wrong, GD, but I presume it's standard 1" woven poly elastic. Something like this.

Exactly like that. 1" Polyester from Rockywoods. I would like to know who manufactures it, but they won't tell me.

Could you not just ask for the berry compliance proof from them?  Just a thought.
