Crye. 


Fair enough, looked at them and they're only £160iah I think but is it worth it

Well.. why do you think all those SEALs and SF and super leet ninjas use them for real world, getting-shot-with-real-bullets kinda stuff?

 

Personally, I think that because JPC is designed for jumping and seeing as you're probably not doing a HALO in to airsoft, then there's better options in terms of PCs which don't make certain compromises related to parachute ops.  However if one wants the look of the JPC then obviously there's only that option.  Though where you're seeing one for £160 I don't know as Tactical-Kit is asking £260 for the Crye original and that's quite the price gap.

If I'm honest I'm not the biggest fan of them, but the loudout I plan on doing utilises them so

I should highlight first that it's your money and you can do whatever you please, but if you don't like it, then why buy one?  Unlike being in the military, the beauty of airsoft is you can wear whatever the hell you like, the only thing that's a requirement is some decent eye pro.  Again, you can run whatever gear you like, but your current way of approaching things makes no sense to me personally.  You come across as if you feel somehow obliged or required to copy real life SF gear.  I don't wanna hate on that idea because it's obviously popular these days and people can dress however they like, but it's really, really far from the only way of doing things.

Guess that depends on your definition of "affordable" :-)

Fair enough, I guess I kinda do feel that way and feel a small need to conform but your right I might aswell get what I like if I'm going to be spending hundreds on the rig and gear.

My M4A1 (semi)build is now finished. Saying its a semi-build as the receiver, hand-guard, and gearbox were already together. Put a Rogers Super-Stoc on the back, mounted a few rails to the TRX rail, rewired it from deans to mini-Tamiya, replaced the old hop unit with a new one, added a Madbull Hutu, spliced it into the existing wiring, spliced in a switch, broke the switch which fried the Hutu ground wire, replaced the Hutu ground wire, spliced in a new switch, bolted it all down, took it apart again (due to the wiring preventing the magazine from seating), simplified the wiring, put it back together, and it's working well now.

I would say 'might as well' is probably an under-statement in that context.

Just highlighting some different ways to look at things is all.  More people always lurk forums than post on them, so pointing out these things can be at least useful to a lot of folks.  I don't wanna tell anyone what sort of loadout they should run end of the day, but I don't think it ever hurts to give people more different potential options for potential consideration (apart from just the common ones seen online that is).

I travel light.

If more mags are needed, I have a simple chest rig, and if it's a whole day non-stop game, I add a small backpack too.

In my opinion I think the JPC is a cracking piece of kit especially for skinny fecks like me. Having a 33' chest most (all) plate carriers have a lot of movement in them which makes them bounce like a pair of double D's when I run in them. The JPC however is tight enough to allow the carrier to conform tightly to the body with the choice of space which is lost with a chest rig. The inbuilt mag pouches allow for a thinner and lighter mission profile than other Carriers which often make people into the michellin man and in my opinion the skeletal system is a brilliant idea as it allows the user to draw sidearms without the issue of bashing kit on the way down and up.

 

Just my thoughts.

It depends on the features one wants and how much said person wants to spend.  I've got a Crye JPC here that a friend lent me and it's a nice, light little rig, but to my mind it has a lot of disadvantages and he's selling it to pay for the FirstSpear/SKD STT PC he just bought to upgrade from it.  I don't wanna list out a load of bad points because it'll seem like bashing, but comparing it to the PCs I have now and the many I've owned and used over the years I don't find it to be particularly great personally.  What it was, was innovative and at the time it was released it was waaaay ahead of the game and really set a standard (as crye did with the combat shirt), but right now, it's quite a bit behind the leading manufacturers technology and design wise.  Does that really matter in airsoft?  No of course, but there are better options on the market, IMHO.  There are plenty out there which will size down tight  and I'm only a 34-35" chest on a fat day so I've gone through many, many PCs to find ones that fit over the last 7 years or so.  The bulk/drawing from a belt issue is down to pouch placement primarily, but again, plenty of other options on the market which are low profile and won't get in the way of your belt mounted kit while having various other advantageous features as well.

 

If people like 'em then that's cool, there are far, far worse designs about and compared to the Mk4 Ospreys I see so often in game I'd recommend the JPC to anyone every time.  But again, different strokes as always.

Reply (it's the post above)

Don't get me wrong, I have nothing against other plate carriers. I just prefer the cut and style of the JPC. I do see downfalls in the JPC design for example if adding a shingle to the front panel the integrated pouch tends to yawn open and the stock shoulder straps are a bit unforgiving but no plate carrier is perfect. In my eyes I see the JPC to fit my criteria Light, Airy and able to be changed to suit my needs (I.e CQB/Woodlannd . Weekender or Milsim/Skirmish) whilst not slowing me down or restricting movement.

 

TL;DR people have choices and I completely accept that and can see merits and flaws in most designs.

Please excuse the "in my livingroom being all tacticool" pics and the fact the kit still has tags on (best to try things on before removing them when trying a new brand).

UF PRO Striker XT trousers and shirt, Striker jacket and baseball cap all in Slocam. Condor Tactical Ronin chest rig in olive. British Army DPM grenade bandelier. Helicon M4 pouches in Polish Woodland. Mechanix gloves. Rather filthy Magnum boots. WE R5C GBBR and PTS RM4 ERG CQB.
