Simple answer, wear belt kit and a yoke/suspender, stick three heavy duty flat top utility pouches across the rear where a butt pack would be with odds and sods to the left or right.Jeriah wrote:
I know that this is kind of a tangential issue, but I think it needs to be really addressed in context of the war belt. Since the war belt isn't compatible with a ruck's weight-bearing waistbelt, what does one do when wearing one? If I'm going to be taking my ruck on and off all the time, where do my pistol reloads go? The challenge is going to the issue that I'm taking my ruck on and off, so I don't want to put anything on the ruck's waistbelt that I might suddenly need to defend myself or whatever...this would defeat the purpose of it being "first line gear."
I'm not trying to threadjack this thread with my personal beef about ruck compatibility, I'm really not. I am getting serious about training and competition, and just want to make sure I don't get into a situation where I find a solution that works great for training and competition but falls apart when I try to put it all together in the real world.

If I cinch it down tight it bites in good on my hips and I have hiked miles succesfully with a "war belt" and no suspenders (load: 92fs w/ holster, 2 mags, multitool and light, Gerber Prodigy knife, empty dump pouch all rolled up).
