    But seriously, the belt with the double-mag pouches, and the dump pouch, would/will be really handy if/when I'm shooting outdoors without a bench or table nearby. I typically shoot 60-80 rounds per range trip just by myself; that's 3-4 mags right there.

    The same principle applies to the H2O pouch also (gotta stay hydrated). I've watched several videos were people have strapped it to their backpack when camping or hiking. Others have attached a shoulder strap to it and turned it into a small day-trip bag.

    And, just because it's labelled as an ammo pouch doesn't mean it can't carry something else. Even without the removable elastic slit cover, the Velcro flap with snaps would secure anything you put into the 7"H x 6.5"W x 3"D pouch.
    That's why they make range bags.

    True. However, it's also one of the reasons why they make modular belt/web gear systems.

    My Battle Belt, version 3.0

    I think this is the final version. It has four double-mag pouches (160 rounds); dump pouch; H20 pouch; rip away EMT lite pouch. My philosophy of use is inspired by Tom Hardy's character in the movie Black Hawk Down:

    Twombly (Tom Hardy): You're not gonna need that, either. Might as well take dope and beer instead.
    Grimes (Ewan McGregor): What?
    Twombly: Ammo, dude. Take ammo.

    My Battle Belt, version 4.0

    Okay, I really do think this is the final version.



    I discovered two things when trying out version 3.0: 1. a 40oz container of water is very heavy and bulky (so I switched to a regular canteen); 2. four black magazines sticking out of the top of four solid green mag pouches has a very distinct, and man-made, shape that stands out in the woods (so I switched to a modified 3-pocket AK magazine pouch).

    While shopping for the canteen pouch and the mag pouches, I saw, and decided to add, a camo H-harness and little backpack (the seller actually calls it a foodstuff bag). The camo pattern is a Russian pattern called Spectre; I've got an oversuit in the same pattern. I've always liked German Flectarn, but I thought it had too much dark brown/rust for my area of the country. I think this pattern looks like a digital Flectarn, but with a dark tan instead of the brown/rust.
