THE BATTLE OF THE BELT
DO YOU EVEN NEED A CHEST RIG, ASSAULT VEST OR PLATE CARRIER? STEVE T TESTS YTTK’S BATTLE BELT AND HARNESS TO FIND OUT…

Answering the set-up question straight out of the gates… Yes! Unless you’re exclusively a sniper or a pistols-only bandolero, then you’re going to need somewhere to keep your assault rifle magazines. Unless you only play short games between trips to the safe zone, when one or two High-cap magazines will suffice, then you’re going to need to run a chest rig, assault vest or plate carrier - especially if you’re using a GBBR with lower capacity mags.

For that reason alone, I made the move from a belt-based loadout to a vest, but with that came added bulk. And as someone that easily overheats, the additional heat retention was an unwelcome by-product. So, I wanted to find out just how much of my loadout I could shift to my waist, reducing my reliance on torso space with a view to adopting a micro rig for better breathability - more on that in another review.
